    Not professional. Don't bother going to see her. Does not Respect other people's time. Won't recommend.

    Dr. Kristene Whitmore is an amazing doctor! She is the only doctor that was able to help me deal with my Interstitial Cystitis. It is a horrible condition and extreme depressing to deal with if not under proper treatment with the right doctor...but I am able to handle it much better with her variety of treatments. She truly cares for her patients. The office staff is absolutely wonderful as well. They are always so pleasant and friendly and willing to help you. This practice is outstanding

    Dr Whitmore is a rare doctor these days. I have complete confidence in her. She does what is best for me. That's just not the way it always is anymore.

    First of all, I've never waited less than an hour to be taken back. Then, I spend a significant amount of time with her students and about 30 seconds with her. She shows little empathy by not caring that I've had pain my whole life. She performed surgery on me which had complications and I had to stay overnight. She visited me the next morning, but was very cold and defensive. Overall a poor experience and I'm now going to search for another doctor.

    I had an undiagnosed bladder condition for yrs and I was not diagnosed and treated until I heard about Dr Whitmore from a friend with the same condition. The condition is uncommon and most Physicians are unfamiliar with it. Dr Whitmore immediately suspected the diagnosis ,performed a diagnostic procedure and began aggressive treatment right away. It has been 2 years and my symptoms have dramatically improved. I am very grateful to her for improving the quality of my life. I am also a physician

    I had to take my mother in law to Dr. Whitmore. She had a sling put in by another doctor. 2 surgeries later, she was still suffering. I knew we had to get an expert. That is exactly what we received with Dr. Whitmore. She did a wonderful job with my 84 year old mother in laws. I felt like other doctors looked at her like it didn't really matter due to her age. Dr. Whitmore gave my mother in law back the quality of life she had before the sling. I highly recommend her to everyone!
