Dr. Amy Witman is a smart, attentive physician who listens carefully, and is most caring and responsive to patient concerns. She stays up-to-date on medical research and has phoned me with additional info after following up on several of my appointments with further research on a related topic. Besides further research, she has referred me to specialists who she communicated with, and advocated for me when she didn’t think a specialist was treating my case with the urgency she felt it warranted. She has also helped interpret other doctors’ notes, lab reports & x-rays for me so that I understood what they meant. Every time I have called her office with some ailment, I have been able to get in to see the doctor that day. When I have sent an email summarizing visits with specialists, her responses were very detailed indicating she studied the results from the various specialists. She truly is dedicated to delivering the highest quality personal healthcare.
About Dr. Amy Witman

What Patients are Saying
I can’t express what a wonderful service Dr. Whitman has provided both myself and my family. Not only does she really give that family doctor feeling, she is super inquisitive, she listens, she is thorough, she cares, but most of all she is just a plain and simple good doctor.
We moved to the San Diego area from a European country with one of the highest standards of care in the world. It was an eye opening experience to come to the US and be confronted by a system where patients are allotted a very brief appointment time with the physician. We did not feel heard and we always felt rushed. Dr Witman changed all that. Her level of Concierge medicine is truly exemplary, even superior to what we were accustomed to in Europe. She is available at short notice. Dr Witman does not always have the answer but she will delve into it until she is comfortable conveying the results of her research. She is always open to suggestions, intelligent, inquisitive, and has an excellent network of professional colleagues. Staff are personable, professional, thorough, reliable and extremely caring in person and over the telephone.
After hours of internet searches, reviews of the training and experience of multiple doctors, I happened upon Dr. Amy Witman, MD. What a treasure. I am a senior male and have been looking for an experienced knowledgeable doctor who can help me navigate the challenges of aging with a comprehensive plan, involving quality specialists as necessary and evaluating and treating my medical condition in a way that minimizes difficulties and maximizes healthy results. I am fortunate to have found Dr Amy Witman. I would and do recommend her without hesitation or reservation. I believe I am now receiving better care than at any time in many years. The efficient staff is polite, kind, warm and welcoming.
Dr. Witman practices medicine in a far more personal way than I have experienced in the past. The medical stuff we cover in the exam room but most of the time is spent in an actual discussion in her office. She is an engaged listener, and includes my input in the strategies we explore. She refers me to excellent specialists when necessary and provides a seamless connection with all aspects of my health. She follows up on calls and e-mails immediately. Her follow-up e-mails are clear, comprehensive and remove healthcare from the opaque screen behind which it is often hidden. Healthcare delivered in a way that makes me feel heard, respected and cared for.
Just talking to her makes me feel better! She is the best doctor I’ve ever had.
Dr. Amy Witman has been a lifesaver for me. I have severe eosinophilic asthma and have been using new medication to assist my breathing. When my pulmonologist wasn’t answering my calls, I asked Dr. Witman for help. She took time out of her day to follow up with me in less than an hour. It’s refreshing that she truly cares for her patients, is incredibly smart, and has your back when you really need an advocate. I highly recommend!
Dr. Witman has been my doctor for nearly 20 years. Her staff is so friendly, she is always available to answer issues either in person appointment, video conference, and even after hours. The most important thing she does is LISTEN. When I felt dismissed by other doctors, Dr. Witman listened and worked even harder to find the answer. I cannot recommend a doctor more strongly.
Dr. Witman has been mu concierge doctor fort the last 2 1/2 years. She has helped myself and my family with some major medical conditions we all faced. She has been an advocate for us, when other doctors weren’t. She spends the time needed to learn about our medical situation. When my insurance wouldn’t cover the medication, she called them within hours and it was covered. You don’t get treated like part of the heard with Dr. Witman. She won’t let you fall through the cracks and she will follow through on everything. She is worth every penny and a hundred times more for the amazing care she provides.
Dr. Amy Witman is a superb physician. During a visit she listens attentively, patiently, and takes copious notes – a copy of which she then forwards to me for verification and discussion afterwards. She and her staff work tirelessly at obtaining my test results and the associated medical impressions of my various specialists. In one instance, she was the first to make a correct blood pressure medication change when I had negative side effects from the one prescribed by my cardiologist. She is very caring and compassionate; she donated two weeks of her time at a COVID-19 treatment site in Orange County last Spring. She is also extremely responsive to my various questions and requests. You could not find a better doctor!
My story of anxiety and stress caused by one practice compared to my happy and seamless ending with your practice is a perfect example of personalized and patient-centered care.
