    Dr. Whitten has been my primary care provider for a number of years now. Over the years the things that I have become to love and respect about her is just that she respects me listens to me and will help me in any way possible with my health either a muscle mentally or physically when is needed. She has stepped in and been my champion on more than one occasion […]. she is managing my health care in a way that my other provider was not […]. I am glad I was referred to her she's a real gem.

    this was a 6-month follow-up for me with dr. Whitson and she addressed all of the main focus of that visit plus other concerns I had when I came in an ordered appropriate lab work. I hope the doctor roots and never leaves the Salt Lake Clinic because I would be at a loss without her. I feel that she truly is invested in my personal health care and that she cares for me as an individual and doesn't see me just as there is a number or patient she sees me as a person as well.
