I would recommend her to my nearest and dearest family members and friends. My most recent tele-health visit was exceptionally comforting and supportive. She made sure that I had the time to express my concerns and worries. She asked, more than once, if there was anything else I needed to talk about. Then gave me the time to do so. I feel privileged that Dr. Whiteley is my health care professional.

Dr. Whiteley and her staff always make me feel super comfortable. Very knowledgeable, patient with my questions. Never have I had a bad experience with them. Waiting room office and back rooms are always clean, you guys keep doing a great amazing job.

I have been a patient for many years. Dr. Whiteley is a professional and friendly doctor. She listens to you and respects your opinion about your care. There is never a hurried appointment. Her diagnosis has been point on. She follows up with you and your care.

Dr. Whitely is knowlegeable, her science I believe to be good AND she is always interested in what I have to say and how I am feeling. Her staff is terrific. She is not one to rush in and out. As far as that other review about waiting 2 hours, I have never in several years experienced that problem. Maybe 10 minutes or 15 tops but I forgive that as I know she is taking time with other patients just as she does with me. My only complaint is that in December of last year, I had a TERRIBLE cold, cough, infection and was really miserable. I actually went to the office and begged her to see me and they would not do so. Not even for 5 minutes. Nope, the recommendation was to go to one of those medical emergency places. Really? I was sitting there and I was REALLY sick and the DOCTOR could not find time to see me? You can see I am still disturbed by this but still, I recommend her. Otherwise, if one has an appointment and you show up early or on time, I have never experienced a problem.

Dr. Whiteley is always kind, good listener and good with advice. I leave with a calmness about whatever I was worried about. Wish there was a good nurse to help her on a consistent basis.....

I have recommended her many times.

I realize it's your annual exam and with all the insurance stuff that you can't discuss any ailments, but I think there should be some communication regarding new meds you are taking from another doctor and their treatments you are getting.
