If you need medication to keep you somewhat stable, make sure you have a lot left over before you call this jokester, because he drags a$$ like a sloth covered in molasses. If you have the option, pick someone else who might actually follow-up for patients and help them.

I would give him 10 stars of u could. He made me understand things about myself that helped me so much .He also cares for his patients and really does listen and knows his stuff . for my first appointment I was nervous for no reason it was like I knew him I didnt feel uncomfortable I look forward to my next apt so I can start living a life I deserve . but wrote down the things I forgot to go over and also how I've been doing so I can be the best me possible but would be impossible if it wasnt for dr Whitley who doesnt push medications on you at all unless your comfortable with it . I would highly recommend him . even if he doesnt take your insurance hes worth every penny and actually does his job helps make ur diagnosis not ruin your life. He's awesome

Great guy incredible doctor I really enjoy working with him I’m glad I was referred to him. There is no waiting like all the other offices for doctors dentist therapist. And he tries to get you out as quickly as possible and less you have questions and concerns he said some lessons and gives the best advice that I’ve ever heard

Geoff is an excellent provider with an open minded, relatable approach. I’m confused about some other patient’s assessments especially when it comes to the prescribing of medication. I swear people don’t appreciate enough having a doctor who listens to them and takes into account what they need. I’ve found that there are doctors who are so strict in their prescribing of medication that there’s no way they can effectively treat patients and they essentially make patients beg for what they need. Conversely, there are doctors who prescribe so freely that they are a symptom of the overall disease of over prescribing. How do I know this? I am in the medical profession myself & have witnessed physicians in both of these categories. This makes me some what qualified in stating that Geoff falls right in the middle. He’s not so jaded that he holds past patients misdeeds against you. He trusts you until you give him a reason not to and quite frankly, that’s how it should be.

Dr. Whitely should have no business with humans. He asked zero questions spends 12 minutes with you, charges you and doesn’t give a receipt for cash, He prescribes whatever prescription the pharmaceutical sales rep left samples of. The board should investigate. Something isn’t right there.

Lacks social skills, eye contact , patience, professionalism, follow through. He books 10 patients in an hour and kicks one out while the next one goes in! The best way to describe Geoffrey Whitely’s Practice and operation style is “prescription factory”. I

He was able to get me in quickly in a crisis. I appreciated that enormously. He listened, took care of the crisis immediately and we are meeting at a good time for me in the future. I think if I were loooking for a good therapist instead of a psychopharmacologist he would be a good choise. I felt a good raport with him and I am hard to please having seen many therapists in my life. good sense of humor. I look forward to further visits with him.

I sincerely doubt these other reviews. He barely asks any questions, looks at you with a sort of dazed stupor, prescribes something, then after the about 20 minutes charges you the full cost of the visit.
