While he may be knowledgeable, he doesn't take the time to know what the problem is to help diagnose a thing. Additionally, he's always in a hurry and rushes out of every appointment. Doesn't seem like he likes what he does and that's not a doctor to be treating children.
in Newnan, GA |
His highly incompetent nurse practitioner prescribed our daughter a very dangerously high prescription for antibiotics for pneumonia that if not caught by our pharmacist could have caused heart failure amongst other issues. And she nor anyone else including Dr. Whipple still has not apologized even after she was proven wrong. And your child will eventually see her because Dr. Whipple is never there and his own staff mysteriously doesn't know when he will be in the office or how to contact him!

Pediatric Associates of Newnan Pc - Avoid at all cost! There are better equipped doctors and nurse practioners in the county. They missed the diagnosis of my sons. Pretty sad docs at Pediatric Associates of Newnan. Read the other reviews before you choose here. I gave it a 2 star because the receptionist is very nice. We left w.o a proper diagnosis for my kids and they sent us a bill! That same day after these bad docs we saw a new doc and yes... they have the flu! Pretty hard to miss that

My kids have been seeing Dr Whipple for 13 years. He is a good and caring Doctor. A+++

The receptionist must be a relative they are doing a favor for because there is no way any practice would employ anyone with that level of unprofessionalism.

Dr.whipple and other physicians seemed nice but receptionist was kind of rude my first visit with my child in my opinion she could have been nicer and smiled more

TERRIBLE! Mad I even had to keep going back to him but I hadnt found a new dr yet and my child was sick. The man couldnt even diagnose simple things like thrush and when my child got very sick, he clearly didnt know what to do and brushed us off. Thankfully we found a specialist who could care for my child and upon returning to Dr Whipple he asked what the specialist said and claimed thats what I was going to say He is an in and out kind of Dr and talked over me when I explained our symptoms
