Dr. Whalen is an amazing dermatologist. She has such a kind, friendly, caring demeanor, but more importantly, I feel she is a very thorough, experienced doctor who listens. After several visits to a supposedly "voted best" dermatology practice in the area, I am flabbergasted and very suspicious of the large numbers of 5-star reviews, because my experience was awful. Patients are treated like cattle, herded in and out, no time spent with the patient, that is, when the patient is not being pawned off on a PA, and they seem to be more interested in cosmetic procedures and selling seriously overpriced skincare products. Fortunately, Dr. Whalen is totally the opposite. I have never felt rushed and she patiently answers any concerns or questions I have and is genuinely caring. I'm glad I finally found my dermatologist!

Dr. Whalen is a knowledgeable physician. She diagnosed my problem with ease. She treated it then and there. No need to get extra appointments. She is so very kind and smiles all the time. She remembered me from visits with my mother. She allowed me to give input and responded to me while at a visit with my mother. She is a terrific doctor. I wish she were a primary care provider, I would go to her for all my healthcare needs. Her staff is kind and caring.
