Dr. Emily Whitney

Family Medicine physician


Dr. Whitney chose to be a family medicine physician because she loves the variety and potential to care for the entire family, and the best part of the job is the cherished relationships she is able to develop with her patients and their families. There are many roles as a family physician including coach, confidante, counselor, cheerleader, caregiver, collaborator, and consultant, but “the experience of being valued is the beginning of healing.” Throughout her medical career and volunteering experiences, Dr. Whitney has embraced this philosophy of caring as she builds respectful relationships with patients.
