Dr. Whaley listens to your issues and concerns. He makes suggestions accordingly or he sends you for other tests that he deems necessary. He is compassionate and caring. I have complete confidence in him.
in Gardner, MA |
I have been Dr. Wholey's patient since 2001. He is an excellent cardiologist who explains exactly what the issue is and what needs to be done to control the problem. I have an adult daughter who had Down Syndrome. She is also his patient. She usually get anxious when she has to go to the doctor - not with Dr. Wholey. S.B.
