Dr. Whelihan visits are BRIEF; as were her responses to my concerns. I went in for a wellness check, but, she did not check my breasts. (My Mother had breast cancer) Furthermore, I need a 3D mammogram which was written inaccurately. (3D helps to see through dense breast tissue.) She was so rushed she didn't LISTEN to what I was saying and offered to increase a medication; not related to gynechology. I had withdrew from this medication and did NOT want a refill. I went to my pharmacy and she had prescribed Progesterone for me. NEVER was this medication discussed or explained to me in my office visit. When I questioned her nurse about this medication; the nurse could not find an explanation for this prescription, and recommended I come in for another appointment. I have since found 2 other patients whose gynechological health she has DESTROYED. Please do not go to her; her license needs to be revoked. Nasty, nasty staff except for that one kind nurse.

The last couple of times I have seen Dr. Whelihan she has been extremely inconsiderate about my pain. First of all, pain is SUBJECTIVE. I am a registered nurse and you are supposed to believe the pain level your patient says. I came in with a 6/10 vaginal pain level and she said that my pain was nothing in comparison to childbirth, that essentially I was being too sensitive, and that how was I supposed to make it through childbirth if I though what I was feeling was painful. She does not have kids so what would she now about childbirth nor does it make sense to say that.... Let's just compare all sorts of pain women have to childbirth then. I had sensed her insensitivity a while back and have now decided to NEVER see her again. Other people I know have also complained about her insensitivity. Unprofessional staff too: Mary (nurse) always has a miserable attitude and the new "secretary" whom is Dr. Whelihan's sister, is totally incompetent as a secretary.

Very knowledgeable, and great bedside manners. She speaks fast so, at times, it's hard to process all of the feedback, especially if you suffer from menopausal brain fog.

My wife Argentina had a new patient appointment with Dr. Rebecca Canoli at 2pm. and she was there a few minutes early. She came up to the front desk window and was not greeted properly. The front desk lady told her to sign the waiting list without saying anything else, turning her back to work on something. My wife sat down and waited, then noticed that another visitor came in after her and sign in. When that second visitor was called first, my wife went to ask about her appointment that was past due time, the front desk lady was rude and lied to her. My wife is used to being treated in a more friendly manner. The front desk staff is not friendly and acts with low integrity. Stay away from this low customer standard office

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 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.

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.
