Patient Comments (6)

Dr Whaley is amazing! My husband went in using 2 canes to walk. He does not want knee replacement and Dr. Whaley, with the use of injections and therapy has my husband walking with no assistance. Love his personality and his staff is great. Totally recommend.

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.

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...more
