Do NOT go to this doctor. I had a workman's comp claim and after reviewing my MRI he promptly told me that they would probably not pay for it and to come back and see him after it was denied and they'd "take care of me" with my private insurance. He had zero personality and no empathy whatsoever.

Got appointment quickly and front and back staff very pleasant and helpful. I liked dr Whaley, very straight foreword and explained everything completely. I'm glad I have him as an physician.

Dr. Whaley is "Saint Andrew" at our house. Dr. Whaley replaced my husband's left knee, after FOUR OTHER ORTHOPEDIC SURGEONS botched it and refused to repair their own work. It is unheard of for a surgeon to accept such a challenge - to correct what four other surgeons have messed up and walked away from. His knee replacement was the sixth major surgery my husband had. He put in a long prosthesis/total replacement, and that has lasted for 9 years and is still perfect.

Great office staff and friendly provider.

The worst experience ever. If you go see this man under workers compensation don't. Request that they send you else where. He doesn't care about patients with workers compensation insurance, he tells you that workers compensation won't cover it, that you should come see him under your own private insurance. He is rude, doesn't even look at you when speaking to you.
The practice has a large focus on workers' compensation (W/C) earning many accomplishments in this area. Dr. Whaley does not determine what is compensable by worker's comp and what is not. This is a situation of a dissatisfied patient venting online because their WC insurance would not cover a procedure. Do not judge the practice based on one patient. Come see the inviting atmosphere and the attentive demeanor of Dr. Whaley and his team.
