My husband was so blessed to be a patient of Dr. William Whaley in Blue Ridge, GA. He received excellent care and Dr. Whaley “made things happen” when my husband got there because his cancer was growing so fast. The office staff and the nurses in the treatment clinic were awesome. Highly recommend Dr. Whaley!!!
Dr Whaley has been my physical for over 20 years. His diagnostic ability is outstanding! I will always trust him with my health and well being
Dr Whaley is probably the best doctor I have ever been to. He is extremely knowledgeable and took the most comprehensive medical history in all of my 60 years. Yes, he is blunt and straight forward, two qualities I greatly appreciate in this time where many doctors do coddle and don’t really practice lateral thinking. I highly recommend Dr Whaley, as he is an outstanding diagnostician!!
He’s a good doctor. I can’t take that away from him. However, he’s the only doctor that ever made my Mother cry simply by being very rude, loud and losing his temper for something that she had no control over. . A long story that I want go into at this time. But I’ll never forget that day.
Most arrogant, hateful doctor I’ve ever in my life been around. He needs to take anger management classes. No person that gets in that a vengeful frame of mind needs to have anything at all to do with dealing with the public much less sick people. I wouldn’t let him doctor my animals after the way he treated my Mother!!!!! Not recommended!!!!
He examined my breasts without a nurse present. He launched into a verbal fantasy of meeting my friend in a hotel room to have sex. A nurse warned me to stifle my emotions when I learned I had an ovarian mass.
doesn't listen at all. Talks alot but says nothing !!
Probably the worst choice you can make for healthcare.
Dr Whaley is the only Dr ever that made my 91 year old Mother cry. He was angry with her and me to the point of yelling, red eyes bulging and almost foaming, accusing me & her of something beyond our control, concerning his call team, who he said didn’t have time to be on the line with us. Also he really didn’t want to hear any new complaints and told me to put my pencil away when I needed to take notes in order to remember what he was telling me. He is obnoxious and cruel. Had no bedside manner. When someone has cancer, they need understanding and someone who cares. Not someone who seems to look down at them. My Mother has passed since then. I have to forgive him for my own sake but I’ll never forget how he made my Mother cry. It still breaks my heart. The scheduler called to bring Mother in for a bone marrow biopsy. When we got there (same day) found out from a nurse that he had never done a bone marrow biopsy. Revenge? Treat? For just misunderstanding the call line? Never again
Dr Whaley was excellent while examining my mother. He listened, held her hand while asking her if she had any questions. Spent a lot of time and truly cared about the whole human being.
He was great with my father. Very frank, gets to the point, intuitive and called cancer txs center for him to start treatment asap.
Dr Whaley treats people like they dont matter. He looks down on his patients as though he is better than they are. He doesnt listen to anything your telling him and basically he is a very cold hearted older man. Will not be going to him again nor would i recommend anyone that i care about to go to him either.
After I saw a review of Dr Whaley blaming your pain on your imagination, I felt compelled to tell my story too. I came in with new pain that was terrible and wanted to raise my concern. Dr Whaley didn't spend 2 mins actually examining me and proceeded to tell me it was all in my head, and that I should see a psychiatrist because I'm making myself sick. He continued to bully me like this the entire appointment. I left in tears. He's beyond unprofessional, arrogant, doesn't listen, and just cruel.
Dr Whaley can be charming and, from all indications, competent. That being said, watch out. If you happen to challenge his "authority" in some way, intended or not, he can quickly become verbally abusive, saying his patient's condition is "all in their head," and rapidly dictating that into record and passing it on to referring physician. I was told later that he had been forced to apologize to other patients by calling them. Make sure your order & records are there. They tend to lose things.
I enjoy the frankness of Dr. Whaley. He is direct, to the point and holds no punches. If you're looking to be coddled look elsewhere. I like his approach but it might not be for everyone.
You could never have a more competent or expert physician than bill Whaley
I heard from two other physicians that Dr. Whaley could be very abrasive. The first few times I saw him I found him to be very attentive and concerned. The last two times I saw him he seemed very rattled when he entered the office. Instead of being able to talk to him he became argumentative to the point where we both were very loud with each other and ended up in an argument. A day that should have been the happiest day when I found out I didn't have cancer of the lung became the most emotional day of my life. I left his office crying. He didn't say anything about any follow-up appointments or even a good bye. Because Dr. Whaley didn't listen we had a mis-understanding about my concern over the lung cancer. I am breast cancer survivor so my concerns were legitimate instead of being compassionate he attacked me for being concerned. Saying I was looking for something to be wrong, I was pathological and needed to see a psychiatrist. He went onto ask why do you think AARP and other senior groups advise you not to go for those Life Line Tests? Because it's people like you who are looking for things to be wrong with you health. (I've never used any of those services.) That very day when I got home I called the office to have my records transferred over to another physician in the same office. The next day I received a telephone message from Dr. Whaley apologizing for his behavior. I did return his call in a few days. He couldn't have been more apologetic. Telling me it was him and not me that had the problem. I told him I wanted any reference he may have dictated in my chart about being pathological and needing a psychiatrist to be removed from chart. He assured me he would make sure that info would be removed. A few days later I received a note from him apologizing for his behavior again. I feel vindicated because he apologized and recognized his behavior was totally unacceptable. His apologies won't change the fact that I will not be seeing him any longer.
He listens. He will get a test ordered post haste if there's a problem. He allays my fears when I've been diagnosing off the Internet. He is so smart and makes me feel I am in good competent hands. He makes me feel like an old friend instead of "the patient with the gallbladder ". I just love him.!!
I respect his knowledge and professionalism. He is my general practitioner and I really appreciate the interest he takes in me as a patient and a person. Visits are about as low stress as possible.
I have the upmost confidience in Dr. Wahley. When a family member or friend ask for a recommendation of a doctor and it is not is Dr. Whaley's field I will call his office to see who he would recommend. Several recommenations are doctors he actually uses That speaks volumes.
