Dr Whaley is probably the best doctor I have ever been to. He is extremely knowledgeable and took the most comprehensive medical history in all of my 60 years. Yes, he is blunt and straight forward, two qualities I greatly appreciate in this time where many doctors do coddle and don’t really practice lateral thinking. I highly recommend Dr Whaley, as he is an outstanding diagnostician!!

Dr Whaley is the only Dr ever that made my 91 year old Mother cry. He was angry with her and me to the point of yelling, red eyes bulging and almost foaming, accusing me & her of something beyond our control, concerning his call team, who he said didn’t have time to be on the line with us. Also he really didn’t want to hear any new complaints and told me to put my pencil away when I needed to take notes in order to remember what he was telling me. He is obnoxious and cruel. Had no bedside manner. When someone has cancer, they need understanding and someone who cares. Not someone who seems to look down at them. My Mother has passed since then. I have to forgive him for my own sake but I’ll never forget how he made my Mother cry. It still breaks my heart. The scheduler called to bring Mother in for a bone marrow biopsy. When we got there (same day) found out from a nurse that he had never done a bone marrow biopsy. Revenge? Treat? For just misunderstanding the call line? Never again

Dr Whaley was excellent while examining my mother. He listened, held her hand while asking her if she had any questions. Spent a lot of time and truly cared about the whole human being.

Dr Whaley treats people like they dont matter. He looks down on his patients as though he is better than they are. He doesnt listen to anything your telling him and basically he is a very cold hearted older man. Will not be going to him again nor would i recommend anyone that i care about to go to him either.

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.
