Left many phone messages, tried to get followup appointment, never felt he had the time to answer my questions, appeared very rushed and not sincere. Office was very large and not personal .

 |  Unremarkable Gastroenterologist  |  show details
by GJW on Dec 7th, 2012

I have been a patient of Dr. Wilhoite for the past 14yrs and there is not another specialist/investigative Gastroenterologist with the drive, bedside manner, knowledge, experience, compassion, and attitude in the country; and I have been to Duke, Vanderbilt, Mayo, and many others. I don't believe you will find any other Gasteroenterologist that compares to his reputation and just down to earth personality. He just tells you how it is! No BS. That is what I love.

Some of the patients who have left Dr. Wilhoite have told me that their reason for changing doctors is that Dr Wilhoite can be moody and curt. Although this behavior has been noted a few times during our 15 years as his patient, Dr. Wilhoite becomes moody only when one of his patients (new or old) has a condition which most like will lead to that patient's imminent demise. My wife and I have been in the office or hospital at a time when he has to tell a patient he or she is dying, this breaks Dr. Wilhoite's heart and his innate kindness and empathy causes him distress. In these circumstances, the Doctor's behavior is often misinterpreted by others as moody or curt. This level of caring should be appreciated by patients and not a source of aggravation.

Tried to be a good doctor over 5 years but abruptly left practice without notifying patients and not providing for ongoing care.

Dr. Wilhoite is an excellent doctor - very dedicated to me and my condition. He provided great care during my diagnosis and hospitalization. Highly recommend!

Excellent doctor who explains all test results and medical problems - especially in terms that understandable by everyone. He is extremely nice and makes me laugh (even when it hurts).

EXCELLENT physician, but possibly one of the meanest people I've ever met.
