It’s ultimately Dr. Witte’s curiosity and desire to help people that led him down the path to medicine. Thirty-two years later, he’s still listening to his patients to uncover the best care and treatment plan for them.
Dr. Witte graduated from the School of Medicine at the University of California and did his residency in Bangor Maine at the Eastern Maine Medical Center. Soon after he decided that working at a community health center would fit well with his vision. “I believe everyone has the right to healthcare and improving the health of a community is very important.” He joined Tri-County Family Medicine in 1987.
“Though I was raised in California, I have stayed here for many reasons. Of course, it’s a great place to raise a family and I’m very invested in the community. I like working with the people here. I like the patients that I’ve come to know over a long time and the nurses that I work with. I often feel really rewarded by the trust that people will place in me, and I feel like it’s an honor and a privilege to be in that position.”
Dr. Witte is dedicated to this community beyond seeing patients at Tri-County. He has served as the Medical Director of the Livingston County Hospice since 1992 and has been involved with Noyes Memorial Hospital since 1987.
He chose Tri-County because he was impressed with their commitment to quality and continuous improvement. And it doesn’t hurt that we’re in an area where he can run, do cross-country skiing, hiking, and canoeing. When he’s not outdoors, he’s spending time with his family and grandchildren.
