My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I chose to affiliate with MDVIP because the model’s primary care philosophy aligns with mine: more personalized, proactive care. I believe that having more time to spend with patients and taking a more proactive vs. reactive approach can help identify risk markers and can make a difference for patients as they work to improve their health. I believe in health span, a concept referring to the number of healthier, disease-free years of life you could experience, not just life span. I also believe that having meaningful relationships with patients is what primary care is all about. It’s the very reason I went into primary care. My MDVIP-affiliated practice allows me more time to get to know my patients and give them the individualized care I believe they need. Similar to concierge medicine practices, I also offer conveniences like same-or next-day appointments.

I am a board-certified family medicine physician who has been practicing for 18 years in Phoenix, Arizona. My practice is in the Ahwatukee area. I practice primary care, and my special interests include women’s health, preventive care and minor in-office procedures. I have affiliations with Banner Health and Dignity Health hospitals.


 It is important, now more than ever, to have a primary care doctor who has the time and resources to care for you personally and proactively. Watch this video to hear more.

We have been with Dr. Whitten since she joined Caring for Families. When we encountered one of those forks in the road to make a choice of doctors, we quickly realized what a wonderful choice we made. Dr. Whitten immediately established a trust and rapport with us. She gave support, caring and interest in her patients' health and lifestyle. We feel most confident in her strength, knowledge and… See more

I am 65+ (;) ), and in my life I was a patient of many good doctors in a variety of countries, and under a variety of political systems. All of them (except one >: /) follow the Hippocratic Oath with full heart. Thanks to each of them!
However, my doctor, Dr. PennyAnne Whitten, is the one that I found as a great listener, extremely loyal to her patients, and knowledgeable.

In March of 2014 I went to my doctor, Dr. P. Whitten, for what I thought was a urinary tract infection. I gave her a urine sample and when it came back clear she did an internal exam. She left the exam room and when she came back she had already made an appointment for Monday with a top oncologist in my area. She found a firm, hard growth near my ovary.
