Atlanta, GA |
After I saw a review of Dr Whaley blaming your pain on your imagination, I felt compelled to tell my story too. I came in with new pain that was terrible and wanted to raise my concern. Dr Whaley didn't spend 2 mins actually examining me and proceeded to tell me it was all in my head, and that I should see a psychiatrist because I'm making myself sick. He continued to bully me like this the entire appointment. I left in tears. He's beyond unprofessional, arrogant, doesn't listen, and just cruel.

Dr Whaley can be charming and, from all indications, competent. That being said, watch out. If you happen to challenge his "authority" in some way, intended or not, he can quickly become verbally abusive, saying his patient's condition is "all in their head," and rapidly dictating that into record and passing it on to referring physician. I was told later that he had been forced to apologize to other patients by calling them. Make sure your order & records are there. They tend to lose things.

I enjoy the frankness of Dr. Whaley. He is direct, to the point and holds no punches. If you're looking to be coddled look elsewhere. I like his approach but it might not be for everyone.
