Feel like a number!

I feel he doesn't really care. Not friendly and seems cold. Lack of impression that he cares about patients.

Medicare Patients turned out

Our family have been patients of Dr Whimple since he began practice in Elko and felt we had a good relationship with him. However, April, 2013, we were told to find a new doc because he didn't want any Medicare patients. Just like that, rather, his receptionist told us just like that. After 8 years and no indication that there was any problem, Dr Whimple has left us with no primary care physician and no reference for finding one. This is just wrong on so many levels.
