See him twice, once in 2000 for my broken wrist surgery and second in 2011 to check on my knee after my surgery done in Taiwan. He is a pure professional doctor who will tell your condition without any hiding of the fact.I heard he is retiring and relocating to other city. I wish the best of him on his retirement.
Dr. Whelan did not smile nor did he take any extra effort in making me feel welcome. However, his nurse and staff did. I know some physicians do not have a good bedside manner but more important to me was his ability to diagnose my problem and resolve it, which he did. I have been to a few doctors with the great bedside manner skills but lack medical skills. He looked at my xrays, recommended aspiration which he did with minimal pain and explained to me the issue and how to take care of it.I like everyone at Kelsey Seybold and have never had an issue.
Trying to get information so that I can possibly set appt for my Grandmother wasimpossible! The staff was very rude and I was transfered to his Nurse, the phone rang forever when finally someone picked up without saying one word, then put me on eternal hold. If the is the service you get, I will never allow them to care for my Grandmother!
