I have been seeing Dr Whicker for about 5 years. He is very thorough and takes the time to gather the information needed and runs the necessary tests to get to the bottom of your issues. His staff is very friendly and helpful. I recommend him and his practice.

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.

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 in trying to diagnose my problem. I only recommend him if your problem is really straight-forward.
