What People Say About Dr. Ellen Whitaker, MD
Reply
Did GYN exam with Dr. Whitaker, she did her job, but she does need to work on her bedside manner. I told her that I did yoga and she called that "hocus pocus." She leans more towards athletic. When I told her my employment vs educational background, she stated I was "...creature." Because I am a positive person, I do try to see the silver lining in everything even when I could take something in offense, she told me, her stmt was more an observation. She needs to work on her bedside manner.
