Dana Lyn Baker – Jul 21, 2020
Love Dr. Whiddon, I switched over to him from my old OBGYN because she was not willing to help me with some of my problems I was having. Dr. Whiddon helped me out and I no longer am dealing with those issues anymore. He and his staff are very respectful and really listen to any concerns you may have. I am very glad I see Dr. Whiddon and recommend him and his staff to anyone!

JD – Apr 23, 2020
Overall, Dr Whiddon made me feel very comfortable. (as comfortable as a gynecology appt can be). However, i was a little offended by the "s" word that came out of his mouth in our conversation. I work with patients all day and would not ever use a cuss word while communicating with them. There are better options. Otherwise, I liked him and would recommend him.

As a middle age woman, life presents changes. Dr. Whiddon talks about those without talking down to me or giving me the feeling that I'm "old". We deal with things which come up (abnormal paps, hormone testing) realistically without alarm. Treats me like I'm a person.

I went to see Dr. Whiddon as a new patient after my doctor retired. I also made an appointment for my daughter for her first appointment with a Gynecologist. I was so pleased the amount of time Dr. Whiddon spent getting to know both of us and making us feel comfortable with choosing him for our care. He was very patient in answering our many questions and offered a lot of additional information to so us that we could make informed decisions.
