Patient Comments (4)
in Conshohocken, PA |
Dr. Whalen is very knowledgeable. He was able to diagnose my medical condition when 2 other doctors could not. He genuinely cares for his patients. As with any Specialist, scheduling an appointment takes about 2 weeks but he is worth the wait. His office staff is friendly and hard-working.
in Blue Bell, PA |
One of the most compassionate, experienced rheumatologists around. He treats you as a person with a disease/condition and not just a sick body. Very few rheumatologists are as well versed in psoriatic arthritis and I got my life back under his care.
Will not bring my elderly mother back. Waited over an hour and a half. Not just once, its every time. Kept his back to us the whole time. Mother who is hard of hearing could not hear him.
in Phoenixville, PA |
He is the only doctor that knows how to treat Menieres disease effectively. I went to 4 different ENT doctors, and they all did the same bs, except the one at Jefferson Hospital recommended Dr. Whalen. Now I am living a normal life thanks to his ability to attack the virus in different ways.
