Ratings for Dr. Jason McWhirter
Dr. McWhirter is a super friendly doctor who listens to your needs and who is extremely knowledgeable. I am extremely happy with the staff he has working alongside of him as well. I would highly recommend him along with any other staff member at ReNue.
I can honestly say Dr. Jason McWhirter is the worst Dermatologist I have ever been too. I have seen him 3 or 4 times at the Seton location since we moved there, and not once did I ever leave feeling good. I never had an issue with his staff or punctuality (like other reviews stated) but I found him very ignorant, unknowledgeable and less than caring for his patients. I came in seeking help with my acne and after explaining to him we want to get pregnant in August, he suggested both Birth Control and Accutane to me. I am no doctor but anyone with half a brain knows that if you want to get pregnant, these are both obviously not good choices. When I said that I didn't think these were good options for me basing off the fact I want to get pregnant (and I know you need to be off of these BOTH for a long period of time) he would make comments like 'oh, you have time'. Sorry, but I don't have time. His answers are always very rude, suggestive, and passive aggressive. After telling other doctors that he suggested both of these to me when I want to get pregnant in August, they told me that he clearly isn't listening to me, is very uncaring, and they were disgusted by his suggestions. For anyone who doesn't know, Accutane deforms a fetus, and you need to be off of it for at least a year before getting pregnant, so that truly shows how much he cares for his clients as my baby would be dead or deformed. I would not recommend this doctor to anyone and would rather drive to the other side of the city for an EDUCATED and POLITE Dermatologist.
I saw Dr McWhirter several years ago to have 5 moles removed. During the produre, I felt a lot of pain on my stomach where two of the moles were he was removing. I could feel blood trickeling down my side but couldn’t see bc of the safety goggles. I told him of the pain and he applied more freezing. A few hours after the procedure, I was still in a lot of pain. When I returned home, I decided to take off the gauze to see why it hurts. Turns out I had 9 cigarette like burns from the lazer.... He dropped the lazer during the procedure and didn’t tell me. Just covered it up with gauze. I sent the clinic an email and they were wonderful. They had me come back in and provided me scar gel to help. During my follow up appointment, Dr. McWhirter never once acknowledged the mistake he made or apologized, which is all I wanted. Also during my follow up appointment, one of his employees told me several previous mistakes he had made. I would STRONGLY not recommend
I saw McWhirter for cosmetic issues, he did not inspire confidence in his abilities and because I was fairly knowledgeable about what I wanted due to prior bad experiences he became reluctant to treat me. Always go to someone, who profits from a persons insecurities, with as much knowledge and research as you can. Thank you RateMD
the clinic itself is nice, the staff is a little snotty/bored looking. Jason was very knowledgable but to be honest he offended me. asking if I had acne bad as a teen.. no? why? oh I see some scarring. we can fix that, also I see a bit of this and we can plump that up. came to like $3000 and I left feeling old saggy and uglier than before I went. he over charges and he made me feel like if I don't get all that done I won't look good, I am only 37. not 67. won't be going back.
