I arrived a bit early for my appointment which was requested and I waited about an hour and 20 minutes for a 12 minute exam.The entire time of the exam I felt rushed and like he wasn’t paying attention. When he did answer a question his response was very dismissive. Once he told me not to avoid the ocean in an upcoming vacation, when I asked why, he responded with,”go in and you’ll find out.” I felt like I couldn’t ask any questions with out getting this judgmental, sarcastic response or being talked to like I was an annoying little first grader that couldn’t have possibly understood it anyway. If you have a need to see a doctor with any of his specialties, I would advise you to look for someone else; there are plenty, even in the same practice.

I found Dr. Whitaker to be condescending and difficult to communicate with. He was the classic doc who talks down to patients, makes them wait, and is impatient when they ask questions. I would not recommend him.

I was eventually sent to this doctor after being told I had to get out of my job through workers comp. It was very obvious who he worked for after my visit. I left in tears on several occasions. This doctor is very rude and told my nurse in front of me that I acted like the "pain" was killing me and it seemed so mild to him. Well I got news for this doctor. That "pain" that he thought I was making up, was actually Polymyalgia Rhuematica. Yes, I was young but not everyone is a liar! Shame on you!

I would not recommend this Dr. to others anyone and hope he was having a bad day and doesn't treat all of his customers like I was. I was asked to arrive at 8:30 for a 9:00 AM appointment, I was seen at 9:45 for about 2 minutes The exam room I was placed in for this long wait, extremely uncomfortable, the room was Very hot?!! I was referred to this doctor for an elbow scope and I had to pull answers out of him? Will not re-visit this facility. I know less now after my apt than I did before?
