What People Say About Dr. Beverly Whittenberg, MD

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.

I want to personally thank you and your staff for the amazing service I received on Tuesday, June 6th. The receptionist, Michelle (your PA), your assistant and you gave me the utmost respect, undivided attention and overall care that meant so much to me. Thanks again and continued success.

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.

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

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.

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.

Dr. Whittenberg was very thorough, asking plenty of questions and actually listening to the answers. She was concerned with how things were going, what I have tried that didn't work and what she thought we could do that might work. She was very honest, knowledgeable and caring. She did a series of cervical epidural's to help with neck pain I had been fighting for over 20 years, and thus far has been the only thing to help me. She's the best!

At a scary and frustrating time in my life, Dr. Whittenberg has been a rock for me to learn on, and a guide to show me the path forward. I cannot thank her enough.

Made appointment for my mother visiting from AZ. She had seen a pain specialist there, but no relief. After visiting with Dr. Whittenberg, she determined previous Drs were treating the wrong area to reduce her leg pain. She and her staff worked incredibly fast to get my mother in before she returned to AZ. The pain management worked. And she talked my mother and I through the entire procedure. Great ability to communicate medical procedure so those of us without medical degree understood.
