What People Say About Dr. Maureen Whelihan, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

My appointment was at noon and I was told to arrive 15 minutes early to fill out paperwork. The waiting room was full. I waited a total of 45 minutes and was not called up to be given new patient forms to fill out. I left at that point. One person was waiting 2 hours. The television had non stop infomercials by the doctor on vaginal dryness, erectile dysfunction, incontinence, etc.! It was torture. Unbearable.

Dr Whelihan is the most compassionate doctor that I’ve had the pleasure to see. She is down to earth, genuinely cares about her patients’ concerns & she is funny! Wait times are average, at the most- a half hour. She really makes you comfortable in an awkward situation.

Dr whelihan is one of the top gynecologists who have cared for me. I have had to shop around due to lack of quality practitioners in palm beach county and she is one I will continue to go to. Shes respectful of your time, makes it easy to communicate with her and is on time. She is responsive to any questions or problems you are facing. I wish there were more gynecologists like her.

Having worked with most all the GYN physicians in the area, I chose Dr. Whelihan as my personal GYN physician. She is very knowledgeable, helpful, caring, respectful ,experienced and spot on with diagnostics. Wait time may be longer than expected but seeing her is worth the time. She comes right to the point with patients. Her treatments are exact and excellent.

DO NOT RECOMMEND! I thought I could work through the staff being rude but what I just experienced was absolutely terrible! I went in for an annual several weeks ago and thought as a new patient I could speak to the doctor openly about any and everything going on with my body. The doctor literally answered my questions while she was doing a pap so no time was taken away from her busy schedule. Well the doctor ended up charging me for an additional visit!!! Unheard of! This is such a scam

This office is a joke. I wish I had read the reviews before choosing her. Over 1.5 hour wait for my "appointment". What good is an appointment if they run this far over schedule? I can understand patients are late and a visit could take longer than expected, however, when I asked if this was usual the answer was yes. Unless you are the first appointment of the day (7am) or (2pm) you can expect this ridiculous waiting time.

She is extremely straightforward and personable but her staff is dismissive and unorganized. Waited the first time for 1.5 hours for my appt. Second appt was rushed and prescriptions weren't called in and numerous voicemails were left by me at the office....Frustrating and would not recommend her.

Dr Whelihan is a wonderful Doctor so thorough helping with all facets of a womans life. She directed me in the right direction for successful weight loss after 25 years of failure. She refers me to all the doctors i need. She is such an inspiration as a woman. She takes care of all my medical conditions as a woman.

Dr Whelihan is a true treasure in her field. She always take her time with you, she really listens to your concerns, she is non judgmental.... I moved back to Florida a year ago and I am so unbelievably fortunate to have found her. She is amazing....Carol

worst experience ,could not agree more with another's comments on her-totally wrapped up on herself. Never was called regarding sonogram results, insufficient specimen taken, results were inconclusive and the worst part of this-she never followed up with anything.

The worst. Dr. Whelihan’s obvious priorities are making money and herself. She did not ask me a single wellness question, spent the 5 minutes lecturing me on how difficult it is for her to make money. Had to interrupt her lecture to bring up medical concerns. Didn’t ask me a single health related question, BUT used a cookie cutter visit summary (for insurance payment) she said she did. Can't trust a doctor that can’t even record the visit accurately. Use your wellness check with a real Dr.

I love Dr. Whelihan. She is honest, educated and caring. I had to leave when I had my children, and I am so happy to be back as her patient. She is knowledgeable about so much beyond GYN, and is always ready to discuss any issue her patient is having.

I love the office and the fact that when you are with Dr. Whelihan you don't feel like she has one foot out the door. I like the patient portal and the fact that they actually respond.

Dr. Maureen Whelihan is the best OB/GYN care doctor I've ever met. She has a sense of humor and great bedside manner. She tells it like it is and doesn't sugar coat things. If u don't like that kind of doctor, then u might be offended. Dr. Whelihan and her staff are very easy to talk to, polite and helpful. The office has an open space appeal, so you don't feel like you're in box. You feel comfortable during your visit. I'm spoiled now, so I will continue to see Dr Whelihan for years to come.

I'm not sure she even deserves one star . She over schedules . You wait an hour and a half to see her . Then when you do she rushes . In my case she had a student with her learning , totally fine but she was so rude and didn't even explain or introduce the apprentice . I tried to ask her questions about preparing to try and start a family and she totally blew me off like my questions were irrelevant . Not helpful and so not compassionate . There couldn't be a worse Doctor out there .horrid hours
