Patient Comments (2)
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 in trying to diagnose my problem. I only recommend him if your problem is really straight-forward.
