Dr. Laura L Whiteley has the following 2 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Tried explaining to her that I could not swallow large pills (for Diabeties - she prescribed something different but they were even bigger pills. Then she lectured me about not taking medication and threatened to blackball me from being able to see anyone in the Memorial Hermann system. Switched to another doctor and he was able to prescribe same medication but in liquid form. You would think she could have done that as well. So now I have a comment in the Memorial Hermann system as being noncompliant. Oh well, live and learn
My doctor/patient experience with Dr. Whiteley has always been pleasant. However, it is next to impossible to get a person on the phone. You will leave messages and the calls will not be returned until late in the day. Not at all effective if you are a sick patient. I am concerned that the practice group is simply too big to give adequate attention to all patients and will likely seek another doctor with a smaller group. Fine for annual visits but don't expect the staff to tell you when you make the appointment whether or not you should be fasting. If you just need an annual check up it will do but for personalized patient care, no.
I have taking my daughters to see Dr. Whiteley for the past 7 years and I'm extremely thankful she's our pediatrician. She's caring, patient and insightful with any ailments my kids have. I started seeing her as my general practitioner about three years ago and she's absolutely professional. I highly recommend her.
From the staff that I checked in with as a new patient to the Dr. Assistant to Dr. Whiteley herself I love their attention to detail. I also appreciate the staff looking at me when I speak instead of looking at the computer. I like the print out of recommendiations and the clarity of verbal information given. Thanks for making us feel great, especially when we weren't feeling so good when we came in!!
