Patient Comments (4)

Terrible bedside manner, very dismissive and indifferent to my concerns The staff is incredible, probably to make up for him being kind of a jerk

Dr. Whicker treated my son for his traumatic brain injury. He is a very understanding and compassionate doctor. He's nice and he understood the issues my son was having. I would highly recommend him.

As I have recently moved to MD, this was my first apt. with Dr. Whicker and my first impression was a good one!

doesn't seem to care that much, doesn't listen/understand very well (and I think for a neurologist, being able to listen to nuance in symptoms is especially important!), did unpleasant/invasive tests on me that didn't even make sense to do based on my symptoms, very little intellectual engagement...more
