My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My philosophy of doctoring is elucidated in the following excerpts from the Oath of Maimonides (1135-1204 CE); noted physician, philosopher and scholar:  

“May the love for my art actuate me at all times… Grant me the strength, time and opportunity always to correct what I have acquired, always to extend its domain; for knowledge is immense and the spirit of man can extend indefinitely to enrich itself daily with new requirements”.   

I have a profound interest in the interaction of diet and health in a patient-centered physician relationship, which is a cornerstone of the MDVIP mission. Quoting Maimonides again, “No disease that can be treated by diet should be treated with any other means”.   

I am a broadly-versed general internist of over thirty years’ experience excited to offer this personalized healthcare approach in the Eastern Shore and Baldwin County. I have interests in cardiovascular health, diabetes and hypertension. I am an attending physician at Thomas Hospital in Fairhope, at which I am also on the Medical Executive Committee and was a Patient Safety Hero in 2018. As your private physician who knows your health inside and out, it is important to manage your care if you are hospitalized. Similar to conveniences often associated with concierge medicine practices, I also offer same- or next-day appointments that start on time. Welcome to the personalized health care of my MDVIP-affiliated practice which affords you the tools, wealth of information and compassion for your well-being!

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Wittmer

from Michaell in AL April 3, 2024 for Steven P. Wittmer, MD

From the receptionist to the bloodwork representitive to the nurse to the Doctor they all seem like family when we are together. I maintain a strong confidence
in all of them. My doctor and I have discussions about my total health not just new occurances like you get some places. Amazing that I can't think of anything
that should be changed or a negative comment to share. So… See more

It’s not a one time story, but a continuous relationship that I have with Dr. Wittmer. I sometimes feel like a hypochondriac or that I’m just really unlucky health wise but every time I call with a new complaint; I can make an appointment for within the week. If I call for prescription refills; they get sent same day. I managed to call on what I didn’t realize was a holiday and Dr. Wittmer… See more

from JUDITH in AL February 14, 2024 for Steven P. Wittmer, MD

I don't usually look forward to going to any doctor's appointment, unless I'm going to see Dr. Steven Wittmer. I have been seeing Dr. Wittmer for over 10 years. I started seeing him when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's and couldn't find anyone else in the area familiar with it. Dr. Wittmer has been a great source of support and strength over the years during many… See more

from Mary in AL January 19, 2024 for Steven P. Wittmer, MD

Last year, previous to my birthday, Dr. Wittmer explained that upon reaching the age of 75 it is recommended that no further colonoscopies are needed.
However, he suggested that he could order a Cologuard test just to be sure there were no problems. The Cologuard test came back positive and he sent me to Dr. Eaves, a gastroenterologist. As a result, I had 4 very large polyps in my… See more
