Ratings for Dr. Brien Whalen
Extremely unprofessional. It is hard to believe this guy is a doctor. Showed up 1 1/2 hours late while about 30 people waited for him. The staff said he thought he worked at 11 not 10, but still didn't show until 11:30. Then he proceeded to tell patients that it is none of their business why he was late. Used profane language throughout his diagnosis, and exhibited odd mannerisms(similar to some drug addicts). Stay clear of this guy.
I took my 10 year old niece who was visiting from Toronto after she had her finger caught in a car door. Dr Whalen insisted it would heal on it's on and that the pocket of blood that had grown on her finger did not need to be drained. He was unprofessional wearing jeans and a ripped tshirt and had terrible bedside manner. We went back the next day to the same clinic and saw a female doctor who said Dr Whalen was mistaken and that the blood blister did indeed need to be drained. Would not recommend him.
Dr. Whalen has been my family doctor for 16 years. He is the absolute best! He knows his stuff and is very caring. Dr. Whalen is all about the patient. You can say anything to Dr. Whalen and be yourself. He's loud and funny and I wouldn't trade him for anything. The world would be a better place with more Dr. Whalen's!!
Took my daughter into the walk in clinic today as our family Dr is away. When I heard him talking from the hall I wasn't sure what to expect. He came in to the room and I was shocked that he looked so casual. He was knowledgeable and my daughter loved him. I think he has one of those personalities that you either love or hate. I liked that he was down to earth and not stuffy like alot of doctors
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.
