Ratings for Dr. Brien Whalen
His mannerisms and 'bedside manner' might put off some people, but he's attentive, is eminently knowledgeable and is ready to get you going on the path to recovery quickly. Despite me having an arrangement of absolutely bizarre one-off medical incidents, he's done so much to get my issues corrected and keep up on the chronic issues I do have. May not be the best doctor for those who need their doctor to prod at them in order for them to actually give the doctor any info on symptoms or what-have-you, but if you come in and put it all on the table quickly, he'll get you want you need to get better and have you out the door in a hurry. Great doctor.
I was not impressed. He seems to be a know- it-all. Would not listen to what I had to say regarding my history with bronchitis telling me I did not have bronchitis and I know you the symptoms well as I get bronchitis quite often. Would not go back if he is on duty.
He a getting used to person. I am56 years old. My wife calls him a pill pusher, however I have been seeing him for over 10 years and I am stable with all the issues I have. If you neen to talk to him about something you feel he is not listening, you have to be assertive. His personality should not be mixed with his knowledge. He knows his stuff!
If he is on duty, we go to another clinic. Loud and abrasive. By the end of your visit, the entire waiting room will know what you came in for. Front end staff is horrible! I have often wondered if they actually want to see patients at this clinic because there is so much that turns people off that it is a wonder anybody uses it.
We went to the walk in clinic when we found out I was pregnant. From my one time experience, he is very punctual, possesses good listening skills, and is very knowledgeable. He explains a lot which is a good thing in my opinion. He is very down to earth and not stuck up like other doctors. I would defnitely see him again.
Dr. Whalen is the best!!! Always friendly, has always listened to my concerns and one year, I had a lot, and he was always helpful. Love going to see him, and that's strange, because most people hate going to the doctor, cause it's usually not for good reasons. My husband is seeing him now and both my daughters. We all love him. As with others, I agree, the front staff could use with some people skills, but there are a couple new, younger front desk staff, that are quite good.
