Review of Dr. Whittenberg

- |

Dr. Whittenberg is very competent, and her staff are terrific. Yes, often they are harried, because it's a very busy office. On quieter days, the staff are warm and friendly. They are very efficient in filing the constant paperwork with my disability company. Sadia is a champ keeping the appointments straight. Lindsay (nurse) has been generous in organizing appointments around my disability timelines and answering my many questions. Jae and the other nurses/medical assistants are warm, friendly, and very competent with great senses of humor. Sometimes I've had to call and ask questions, and folks have always been helpful.

Review of Dr. Whittenberg

-

I waited 2+ hours with no apology or explanation in an exam room for a consult with Dr. Whittenberg for a steroid injection for back pain. Her consult was hurried, abrupt, with no discussion of my condition and treatment options until I asked. She offered the shot that day once I got insurance authorization, which was quick; however, an office worker then told me it would be another 2 hour wait for the shot. I had been there for about 4 hours already and felt ill-used and ignored. I walked out.

Dr. Whittenberg is a nice doctor and very professional. I had a couple of back injections and most of them were successful, I feel that the doctor is a bit rushed and the time she spends with you is just enough for the procedure because sh has to jump to the next person. The office seems to over book people which causes a longer wait time and doesn't allow not even 5 minutes to let the doctor know about your progress or ask any questions. Some of the staff are unprofessional and unattentive.

I have been a patient for a number of years. I have a complicated chronic pain condition. Dr. Whittenberg and her associates have been very good at trying to find the best treatment for me.

Dr. Wittenberg is fabulous. She listens to all my concerns and has great compassion. She is careful when prescribing medications while putting patient first.

Review of Dr. Whittenberg

-Burke, VA |

Dr. Whittenberg has no interest to actually solving the patients problems, she just wants to keep on accumulating patients. She would never see you except for the first evaluation and if the Nurse Practitioner (btw Nurse Michelle is wonderful) or the PA decides that you need an injection. She rushes through the injection without waiting for the anesthesia to work and as a result causing major pains. Stay away from this doctor. She does not provide with working solution.

-reisterstown, md |

Dr. Whittenburg is great but the office is very unprofessional. The scheduled appointment is rarely kept. I have wajted over an hour at some appointments. The average wait time is 45 minutrs. Not an ideal customer service experience. I wiuld not recommend the pain and spine center

Review of Dr. Whittenberg

- in Washington, DC |

The office said they run between an hour and an hour and a half behind all day every day. How is that acceptable when you are seeing pain patients? Why not change your scheduling to deal with the issue? Then they were hurried and said they were short on time after I waited over an hour.

Review of Dr. Whittenberg

-New York, NY |

I saw Laura Ricard (PA) twice at the Fairfax, VA location. She spent 5 minutes examining me, did not order an MRI and even after hearing my medical history, misdiagnosed me. She was rude, not at all compassionate and seemed very impatient. As a result of her misdiagnosis, I received a very painful injection which was in the wrong area and a complete waste of time and money. Her diagnosis cost me weeks of additional pain and delayed proper treatment. This place is a factory.
