“It’s all in your head”
Horrible experience. I waited 2 months and and drove 2 hours for this appointment for him to tell me “it’s all in my head” and he thought I was “crazy”. If you’re a women I suggest you find another doctor. He will surely tell you it’s all in your head!

Dr. Whitaker completed a thorough Nerve conduction test. He did not ask for or read the paperwork I completed as I was asked to. The report did not contain any recommendations or next steps. The doctor referred to me as crazy when I got upset that my PCP did not give him the disk of my MRI as I was told she would. Under no circumstance should any doctor refer to a patient as crazy. The stigma around mental illness is profound and being referred to as crazy is significantly inappropriate. It is also inappropriate for the doctor to say you are making me work too hard and this is to complicated. Health care disparities are documented specifically when a patient is labelled as crazy. Any label of mental illness impacts how medical staff perceive a patient and perceive the validity of the self report. Health care availability is also limited. As is noted previously I have left several other reviews, all very positive.
