Ratings for Dr. John D. Whittick
Horrible doctor, has no concern for the patient at all,is only concerned with getting you out of there as fast as possible. He really makes you feel uncomfortable, and almost seems angry that you are even there. I would not reccomend him to anyone!!!
To make a long story short, I have taken john whittick's work/lab results he did with me to another doctor who has taken me on permanently. He described what john whittick did for me negligible at best. The way he treated me was also rude and degrading, and I left that clinic feeling worse than before. I am a young man with blood in my urine (can be VERY serious, still not sure what it is) all whittick could do was bark at me for not having a family doctor. He didn't even care. He also refused to look at my wrist which I had injured months back when I was struck by a car. I just wanted a simple assessment on it, maybe a stretch or two to do? I'm not sure, I'm not a doctor. That's why I was there, whatever he would suggest, but I got nothing. I also recently had a sexual encounter with someone I know now is HIV positive, this was one more thing he just literally refused to talk to me about. What's the point of him even being paid for doing nothing? Waste of my time and mental energy.
Two very poor experiences. My Mom went in for a sore on her chin that showed up and was getting bigger. In less than 20 seconds he exclaimed it was a big pimple...from 6 feet away . A day later she went to another doctor, it was impetigo which could have left scarring. I came to his clinic with a bladder infection, he gave me sulfur for the infection. I finished the prescription with some relief in symptoms. Three days later I had to get a friend to drive me to the clinic as I could barely walk. 105 temperature and sore back, passing blood. I was laying on the exam table, he walked in and with a big smile said "well, you're looking better today". I told him the infection was worse. He took offence to me diagnosing myself and said it was an allergic reaction to the sulfur (showing me an non-existent rash on my chest????) (despite having finished the drug three days prior). A urine test showed severe infection..requiring an ultrasound to check on kidney damage. Never again.
This is one of the worst Dr. I have ever seen. He is rude, impatient and does not take his time. I actually kept track and he is was in and out of the room in 18 seconds. He looked at the sheet the nurse wrote up and had already made his mind up syaing I had a cold. I knew this wasn't right but waited 2 more days only to end up in the hospital. I had pnemonia and had a confirmed case of H1N1.
I am very pleased with this doctor.I have a daughter with many health problems and I took her to see him as a walk in patient.He was sorry for how long we waited to see him as she was in so much pain,he took his time with us and sent us to meet a pediatrician in the ER.He was so great with my daughter that night (caring and very compassionate)that we are actually seeing him as a family doctor now.Since seeing him now as a patient for 2 weeks he has done more for us then our other GP had done for us in 7 months.He is very knowledgable and doesnt hesitate to send you for testing or to see specialists.He always takes the time with us and makes sure we understand things he is telling us and that we understand fully about her medication.He really cares about what is happening with my daughter.
I agree his mind was made up before he even entered the room. I was at a walk-in clinic to get a shot that I had discussed at length with the perscibing doc and rather than ask me if I was aware of the risks he told me that he was NOT going to let me get it! All the while with a big smile on his face like he'd done me a favour. An hour and a half waiting and I walked away still in pain with no hope of relief
I have gone to this doctor for many years but he seems to be more and more rushed. He does not spend any time with explanation anymore. It is quickly in, write perscription and quickly out. I do not even have time to finish my whole story. I am not surprised at his low rating.
i have been seeing this dr. my whole life and it seems that the older he gets the less concern he has. last may i dislocated my elbow and one my first visit to hom after getting out of the hospital he walked into the room and did an assesment on my shoulder.....not my elbow. needless to say i was not impressed.
