“I was in stage 4 kidney disease, lung disease, and heart failure. I was told my only option was a heart transplant. But I was too old and I didn’t want to go through with a heart transplant. After stem cell treatment my kidney disease went from stage 4 to stage 3, my lung function improved from 54% to 75%, and my ejection fraction of my heart improved dramatically. Before I was barely able to get out of bed… now I’m going traveling through Europe soon.”

“I had extreme pain in both knees, toes, and my thumb… my only option was surgery and I wanted an alternative so I could play with my grandkids. I didn’t want the recovery and downtime with the surgery. I had both my knees done and IV treatments with regenerative stem cell medicine. I don’t have any pain in my toes…I have no pain in my knees…I can play with my grandkids, go up and down hills… I’m back golfing 18 holes. I was at an 8/10 pain and now I have zero pain…no pain in the mornings, waking me up.”

“I had a bad shoulder injury in 2011, was told I needed a full shoulder replacement which would have ended my career as a firefighter. I couldn’t do ANYTHING anymore, it hurt to sleep, my shoulder even hurt breathing. I had about 10% movement. The regenerative stem cell treatment was amazing. I thought it was a placebo effect at first. But within a few weeks I was sleeping without pain, I have about 70% of motion back and I’m getting more and more active each week. In total I’m about 80% pain free. The treatment saved my career. I would recommend to anyone.”

“I was a 26 year infantry aviator, I have over 185 free falls and over 300 repels from helicopters…I’ve landed in trees, water, Safeway parking lots, I’ve crashed two cars and had 2 helicopter crashes. I’ve had back pain for years. I did a year of acupuncture, physical therapy, hemp and cannabis gummies…I got to were I couldn’t even play golf without pain. I didn’t want back surgery…my wife’s a retired nurse, she new about stem cells from that. My pain was around 6 out of 10, or 7-8 out of 10 if I golfed…right away I was a little better, after 30 days I felt a lot better. Now I get up and do 30-45 stretches and exercises…now my normal pain level is a zero. If I do something strenuous it gets to a 2 or 3 but I recovery quickly…I developed Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) which came and went…loss of strength on my left side…I tried 6 months of physical therapy…I couldn’t drink any alcohol with GBS…I was told I might be partially paralyzed…since the treatment it’s been non-existent. I’m happy with the results…plus my tax lady told me it was a right off!”

“I was up for a knee replacement at age 28, I just dealt with it. My wife, who’s a medical lab scientist told me about stem cell advancements, and I heard of other athletes that had it done…. I had excruciating knee pain, couldn’t walk downstairs, run or hike anymore. Stuff a normal 38-year-old should. I decided it was time. Now I’m back running, hiking, and things in the gym I haven’t down in years. It’s changed my life. I’m back to doing things with my wife. Friends and family are noticing me doing things I haven’t done in years…Other pains have cleared up in my wrists and hands…My wife got treated as well, we were having trouble getting pregnant and she was having troubles with ovulation. She’s been ovulating for the past 3 months and we were able to get pregnant.”

“I’ve struggled with low back pain since my 20’s, I was a basketball player, had an accident and had surgery. Since then I’ve struggled with low back pain…I had to stop playing basketball, learned to walk again over 6 months. The pain got more and more frequent, it was a 10 out of 10 pain. I tried drugs…was offered to have another surgery but with having a son I couldn’t take 6 months off for recovery. Another doctor recommended I look into a stem cell procedure. I’ve been dealing with this pain for 20 years so I had nothing to lose. Since the treatment I noticed a change in 2 weeks, wasn’t having pain while trying to sleep, I’m working out 5 days a week with no pain. I have zero pain now. It’s been 8 months and the pain hasn’t come back. There was no time in a hospital. I’m getting stronger little by little with exercising.”

“My brother had unexplained pain in his legs, arms, and neck for over 50 years. We’ve had some great doctors over the years, but they just couldn’t help Warren. He was on hydrocodone for a long time but had to stop due to the side effects. Eventually he just had to suffer through it. I found out about stem cell medicine and I had a lot of misconceptions about it. So we came in to talk about it and felt better. After his series of stem cell treatments he was doing great so we came back and had more…now he’s 90% better. The other doctors tried to help but they couldn’t until we found this. He’s absolutely happy about his results.”

“I love to play golf, that’s really important to me…I’d tried other treatments, gel shots. I was on crutches for awhile which the gel shots helped with but I still had pain. Even sleeping at night I’d have pain. I didn’t want to have surgery, I’d read and heard a lot of people didn’t have success. My surgeon said it was my choice if I wanted to try stem cell therapy, but he said he wouldn’t do it personally…I’m extremely pleased with the results…it seems the longer that goes on the better my knee gets. I’m no longer waking up in pain, I don’t have anymore pain. A twinge every now and then on the golf course…but this procedure has been 100% successful for me. It took a couple days for me to start noticing a change…overall I felt like I have more energy.”

– James Hackett / Paradise Valley, AZ

“Being in the nursing field for over 50 yrs left me with bad knees and hips…I had a total knee replacement on left knee which went well. For my right knee I started researching other options and found stem cell medicine. I came in and had my right knee done and did really well, and my hips. My hips are well but not as well as my knee…the next day it was better…after a month there was no pain. I was bone on bone. The rehab from the knee replacement was very difficult. Now I workout 4 days a week, I continued to workout even after the stem cell injection. I do cardio classes and don’t have any pain in my knee during exercise, before I did…I’m much more functional and comfortable doing what I want to do…I think this is a great option to try before surgery…to me this makes 100% sense to do.”

“I was so happy Dr Whitney provided options for my chronic back pain. A year and a half of physical therapy provided no progress and continual re-injury. All physicians I saw before Dr. Whitney told me that I would just have to manage my pain for the rest of my life. I’m fairly young so that was a very discouraging outlook. Just one session made a huge difference in my pain levels, my ability to function at work and back out on the dance floor! I was so impressed with Dr. Whitney. His experience was obvious as he quickly diagnosed the best option for my debilitating chronic pain. His compassion for his patients was evident throughout the therapy as well as having the skill to efficiently complete the process. I felt like I was in good hands and am so thankful to get back to a pain free life! I recommend him to anyone who has chronic pain!”

– C.G. / Low back pain

“The whole office staff is very supportive on your way to get your life back. Staff has made you feel, they are really genuinely concern about your health and how to get your life back on track. The staff/Doctors are very knowledgeable and updated on medical information and are more than willing to share that information so you know what to expect both immediately and as your treatment progresses. Thank you very much :)”

– V.L. / Wittmann, AZ

“I recently met Dr. Whitney while trying to find a doctor who actually would listen to my mother’s issues. For three months I took her to all kinds of different doctors. All of them just wrote a prescription and dismissed her. She is 80 years old and has several bulging discs in her back which are pinching her sciatica nerve. She was in excruciating pain all of the time. She didn’t like how the medications made her feel, and the relief didn’t last long. Luckily in February we found Dr. Whitney! He really listened to my mother’s issues and truly wanted to help her. He’s so patient and compassionate with her and listens to all of her concerns. After a few treatments with him, my mother started seeing improvements. When I first brought her in, I had to bring her in a wheelchair, as she was unable to walk very far. He has been treating her for just over a month. She is doing so much better she’s able to walk and move around. But, most of all you can see it in her overall physical and mental state. I’m so thankful we found Dr. Whitney. I would highly recommend him. Great Doctors are hard to find and he’s definitely a great find!!”

“Not fully knowing what to expect, but from checkin to medical review and procedures, the process went smoothly, and efficiently. Dr. Whitney has a calming presence along with a desire to see people regain quality of life. Very positive experience.”

– G.M. / Phoenix, AZ

“Dr Whitney and staff are amazing! Very caring and took the time to answer my questions. I was not sure of my results before the procedure but after the procedure I am amazed at how I feel. My symptoms have decreased significantly.”

– K.R. / Houston, TX / Crohn’s Disease/IBD

“SUPER nice and friendly…GREAT, great place. Felt sort of awkward at first, out of my area of expertise, but gradually relaxed. BEST thing for your body, medication IS poison. Do your body a favor, try stem cells.”

“My experience was fantastic, words cannot describe how happy I am.”

– B.G Sun City, AZ

“Dr. Whitney’s level of care is unmatched. He provides an unwavering attention to detail and compassion to his patients. Combined with his extensive knowledge, there are few doctors who I would trust to such a degree. He truly is a grade A doctor.”

“I highly recommend Innate Healthcare. I received an IV vitamin treatment in hopes to strengthen my immune system before taking a trip. It wasn’t an easy decision due to my anxiety with needles/blood. I felt comfortable the moment I arrived and Dr. Whitney got a good vein on the first attempt (this is a rarity for me)! The whole process was nice and quick and I felt amazing upon finishing up the treatment. My energy levels were awesome the next few days and I didn’t pick up any sicknesses while traveling- woohoo! This was my first time receiving a treatment of this kind and I am so delighted to have had such a great experience. Thank you thank you!!!!”

– S.W. / Tempe, AZ

“I met Dr. Whitney a few years ago. I shared with him my health concerns (Chronic Neuro Lyme/Celiac Disease etc..) The first thing I noticed about him immediately, is that he truly listens attentively and comes up with options to treat. He does not come across as knowing all the answers but has intelligent and educated, tried and true methods which get results and resolve; no arrogance, like some I have encountered. His heart and passion for better health, shows in his approach. I have received acupuncture from many practitioners over the years, and his knowledge and application surpasses all of them. As a holistic practitioner myself, I have referred many of my clients to Dr. Whitney when I know he can help them more in depth.”

– T.B. / Scottsdale, AZ

“I was having some very sharp pains in my lower back for almost a week. I tried icing, heat, and stretching but my pain wasn’t anything I’ve felt before. I called and they got me in the same day and started my first session of prolotherapy! I was very nervous at first, but Dr. Whitney was very helpful and made me feel really comfortable. My result the next day was amazing! I definitely recommend trying it.”

– M.S. / Scottsdale, AZ

“Great staff that actually cares about your overall wellbeing. I’ve never experienced a doctor before that will stay open a little bit later just to make sure you can get in to see them. 10/10 would recommend to anyone.”

– E.S. / Phoenix, AZ

“Similar to these other reviews, I received that same attentive and overall sincere compassion from Dr. Whitney. Even though I was healthy when I went in (used Innate for an IV before and after a long and adventurous birthday weekend…EDC…) I was treated with the respect, courtesy and thoroughness I’d find necessary if I had gone in for a more serious reason. I rarely, if ever, leave a review but was truly blown away at how awesome and friendly this staff was in every way for such a simple visit. Beyond their friendliness, they were extremely knowledgeable about IV medicine and getting an IV before my trip and upon my return home was THE BEST DECISION I COULD HAVE MADE, THANK YOU FOR THE ADIVCE. Even if I had just done the one before the trip would have still been an excellent decision. I don’t think I’ve ever felt as superb in my life after any long weekend I’ve ever had. Highly recommended.”

– S.H. / Phoenix, AZ

“Dr. Whitney is very friendly, professional, approachable and genuinely caring physician. I’ve gotten treated by Dr. Whitney many times (mainly acupuncture, herbal medicine, physical adjustments) and have always felt very comfortable and satisfied with my treatments. I wanted to see if acupuncture would help me sleep better, improve my cognitive function, and improve respiratory health and I have seen improvement in all of these areas. I also recently began treating my adult acne and am happy to say I’m starting to see great results! I absolutely recommend Dr. Whitney for anything from specific treatments to a general check up!!”

– S.S. / Tempe, AZ

“The staff at Innate are magnificent! You can tell when a person is truly passionate about what they do, and it shines through with Dr. Whitney. I won’t bore you with my past health challenges, but I will say… I’ve tried so many other solutions and my quest for healing came to a happy ending at Innate Healthcare. Thank you Dr. Whitney and team for all you’ve done for me and my family.”
