Psychiatry | Male | 56 years old

Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

My practice focus is based on an integrated, psychodynamic psychiatry model that utilizes both medication as well as psychotherapy and personal life coaching. I recognize the limitations of medications but believe they can assist in an individual's care. Equally important, however, I believe a good therapeutic relationship between the doctor and patient is critical to a successful outcome. I utilize a mentalization based psychotherapy approach to emotional and behavioral difficulties. My training in psychoanalysis and the dynamics within the therapeutic interaction also informs my attempts to help people achieve sustainable well-being.Read more

Dr. Whipple Says:

I take patient satisfaction very seriously.  Please, when you fill out a survey, add any relevant comments to your feedback.  I can only correct what I know went wrong and hope to continue to do what is right.  Success in your psychiatric care starts with a good working alliance between the doctor and the patient.  

in Topeka, KS |
He was professional, pleasant, thorough and concerned. I felt comfortable and left his office looking forward to the next visit.
in Lawrence, KS |
I would recommend him because i feel peaceful after i attend our counseling sessions.
in Indianapolis, IN |
He is the coldest, most arrogant and nastiest psychiatrist I have ever encountered. He showed absolutely no empathy whatsoever. I would never go back to him for help, even if he was the last doctor on earth. NEVER go to this man if you want any help!!! As far as I can tell, he has no interest in helping people, only in taking their money.
As part of my practice, I conduct forensic evaluations on a variety of individuals. Many times they are not happy with my opinions. I strive to be empathetic and kind even in the face of contentious situations.
