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

Dr. Whelihan is a true professional who knows her profession inside out. Not only is she down to earth and makes you feel comfortable, but she is a fine example of how a Dr. Should be.

Great doctor! Super down to earth, makes you feel comfortable, and is pretty funny! I don't mind going to the gyno anymore. I've recommended her to my family and friends!

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 find Dr. Whelihan to be compassionate and easy to talk to; her ability to be forthright opens conversation.

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

Terrible experience with Dr Whelihan My mother was her patient & has Ovarian Cancer Dr Whelihan accused her of smoking - which is insane since she quit 40 years ago Dr Whelihan went on & on saying she can see the lines on her lips from smoking My mother is very ill and needs a supportive GYN I am reporting Dr Whelihan for her appalling behavior She owes my mother and all women an apology for her poor bedside manner
