Dr Whalen joined my regular dermatologists staff, and I have seen her a few times since. She is competent, pleasant to work with, and thorough. I don;t know what more you could ask for. People slamming the office staff should consider what's more important- getting your phone calls returned, or having a doctor carefully and professionally diagnose you.

Terrible - DO NOT USE THIS DOCTOR!

Dr. Whalen is the worst doctor I have ever had. First of all, the office is completely incompetant. Usually they do not answer the phone, and if they do, they do not answer your question. They are also horrible at returning phone calls. This doctor made a serious mistake with my medication and lacked professional behavior when I tried to work with her to correct the problem. You will regret using Dr. Whalen.
