My boyfriend has seen dr Whelan for 3 mos, once per month for addiction treatment, suboxone prescription. I go along for the hour drive and to provide support and ask questions. Initial consult was pretty thorough and about 45m. Follow ups might taper down to 15m short. I agree Dr Whelan is well educated but sometimes needs a persistent inquiry for a clear answer. Best thing about his practice is the low key atmosphere and being a small practice without lines and shady people everywhere.

I would never have Dr Whelan treat my sister again. He ignored the orders from her psych & switched her to a medication that we had just removed because of adverse effects. He sent her home before observing how she would respond to the treatement. My sister ended up being hospitlized for 3 weeks. When I filed a complaint, the county referred to one statement in the client rights where the treating psych can prescribe as they see fit. What a total disregard for the mental health of a patient!

I am a long-term PT of Dr Whelan and have always found him responsive to my needs. He has never done his own scheduling so complaints about that Are not his fault! He has more knowledge and graduate degrees than any MD. I have ever seen. He was always very helpful with me. I saw him at the County and now see him in his private practice..

Dr Whelan does not seem to feel any sense of urgency to return phone calls to family members or social workers, even in extreme situations. It's very frustrating, especially when you are witnessing someone spiraling downward and no one is there to help (although he has been assigned to the patient and is the only resource at the time).
