Meet Dr. Whitaker

After more than 10 years of providing high quality care to skin cancer patients in the Pacific Northwest, Dr. Whitaker has opened his own clinic, Bainbridge Skin Surgery and Consultative Dermatology, on Bainbridge Island. An experienced Mohs surgeon, Dr. Whitaker has treated skin cancer using Mohs surgery and reconstructive techniques across the U.S. for more than 30 years.

During his time in the area, Dr. Whitaker and his wife have enjoyed the special beauty of the Island, as well as the warmth of the people in the community.

With the opening of his clinic, he seeks to provide residents with high quality, compassionate care with the convenience and familiarity of a local provider.
