in Norfolk, VA |
Dr. Whelan was our Doctor during our dialysis at Davita. It's always a pleasure to see him at the clinic. He is very smart and professional at his job. Dr. Whelan is the best,and he cares very much for all his patients. His bed side manner the best you could ever ask for. He takes his time to listen and answers all your inquiries you may have. He is a friend and our Doctor, and we are happy to have met him and have him as our Nephrologist. Many thanks Mr. & Mrs. Gerald Peoples
