Dr. Whalen is an employed physician and has to answer to the hospital. She cannot spend the needed time with you because she has to see many patients in a day to meet her quota. I felt rushed and not listened to.

Not reading the research

Posted on June 30th, 2011

A month after the NIH published a landmark study about the use of Niaspan to improve blood cholesterol levels, I called Dr. Whalen to ask if I should continue use of the medication, which is the backbone of my cardiac regimen. Her administrative assistant called back to tell me Dr. Whalen was not familiar with the study, but if I felt strongly about it, the doctor was comfortable with my stopping its use. Three things are pretty shocking about this response. The biggest shock is that Dr. Whalen wasn't familiar with the study. The results were published on the front pages of nearly every major newspaper in the country, including the NY Times and Wall Street Journal, and was covered by all of the major networks. According to the reports, the NIH said the very popular medication not only failed to stop heart attacks, but in some cases increased the risk of stroke. The results, in fact, were so convincing that NIH stopped its research 18 months early to report out the findings.The second shocker is that even though she acknowledged not having read the study, she still offered the opinion that it was okay for me to stop taking the medication. On the advice of a cardiologist and several other physicians, I had been taking this medication for 10 years. Third, her advice ran counter to the FDA's advice to people taking Niaspan, which was to continue taking the medication until a fuller analysis of the study was completed. Dr. Whalen's bedside manner might be fine, but docs who don't read the research shouldn't be practicing medicine. In this instance, because of the widely reported findings in the popular press, it wasn't even necessary for her to crack a medical journal.
