Patient Comments (7)

I have been a patient of Dr whatley's for over 9 years. I have seen him for various sport related injuries. He is very knowledgeable in his specialty. He is conservative in treatment and doesn't rush to do surgery. I have recommended him to many of my friends and family. Great doctor and staff.

Dr Whatley is the only doctor I have ever seen that strives to stay on time. If he is just a couple of minutes late he apologizes for having me wait. He always answers all my questions and explains my diagnosis and plan in terms I can understand. Love his staff too!!

Dr. Whatley is an amazing Doctor. Always answers my questions and asks me if there is anything else he can do for me before her leaves the room. His MA's Carrie and Tina always make sure they return my calls even if it is later in the evening.
