What People Say About Dr. Michael Whitaker, MD
Reply
Rushed. Course of medication decided before interview...for all the doctor-patient interaction that occurred I might as well have not been in the room. Dismissive of any patient opinions (how dare you think to determine a possible course of action relating to your own condition!) Afflicted with the unfortunate I-am-God syndrome more common among surgeons. Presciption: empathy pills; take one/day, followed by a course of humbleness.

Probably experienced but Dr. Whitaker is on the dismissive side. He doesn't reference complaints adequately. Once he has formed an idea which is right away, it looks like he wants to confirm this idea more than he wants to find out what is really wrong with you.
