Terrible Office Staff
Posted on May 9th, 2017
Terrible experience trying to get through his front office staff just to refill a prescription: More painful than an amputation, and it takes longer. I'm getting a new doctor, not because I don't think he's a good doctor (he is - I've been with him for over a decade), but because his front office staff is so abominable.

Too long of a wait time. No time to actually talk to you and see what your issues are. Just hurry up and get you out so they can charge you.
Overall good experience for one who hates going to doctors

Dr Whittington and Dr Hopkins left me out on the line to dry
Posted on December 24th, 2014
I have been with Dr Whittington for over a year. Today I went to pick up my prescriptions at CVS only to be told Dr Whittington and his office never approved the refill for my Tramadol. I am a disabled senior with Fibromyalgia, Lupus and the list goes on. This is the only pain medication I can take. I am allergic to Tylenol and bad effects from ibuprofen. So I call the office and the recording says closed until Monday. I call the on call doctor, Dr. Hopkins who is up at the LDS doing rounds. He says he is not taking calls for Dr. Whittington and will not at least give me enough to hold me over until the office comes back on Monday. I thought doctors take an oath to help their patients. Insta Care will not help either because Tramadol is now listed as a controlled substance. I cannot even imagine how much pain I will be in by Monday, that's 5 days. After I leave this review I am going online to find a new doctor , office, and pharmacy. CVS should have told me the doctor never returned the approval to refill. If I had known I could have called yesterday while the office was there.
Waste of time and money

Dr. Whittington is always in a hurry and concerns more what to put in the computer and less about you. I am having physical every year and know what supposed to be checked. He skipped at least 3-4 examination points and didnât recognize that I have a heart noise due to valve problem. If you wonât tell him about your problems he wonât find them, even they are obvious.

I have been a patient of Dr. Whittington for over twenty years and I would not trade him for any other doctor. He has been very willing to listen to my concerns (symptoms) and provided me with the correct prescriptions or referred me to a specialist when necessary. I recommend him to my friends.
Misdiagnosed a serious health issue!

Dr. Whittington kept insisting that my husband's problem with his hips was sciatica even though we informed him it was only getting worse and we had our doubts about the diagnosis. He did not listen to us and ordered no further tests/xrays. After seeing an orthopedist, my husband was diagnosed with Avascular Necrosis and has to have both hips replaced! Beware!

Dr. Whittington was unwilling to listen to my concerns & instead went only by the medical information he liked even though there was evidence to prove other possibilities. As a result I went to another doctor who listened and my health has improved drastically. In my opinion listening to your patient is one of the signs of a great doctor. Dr. Whittington needs to work on this skill! I would not refer a friend to him!

I feel like I'm in good hands. He is attentive and always willing to discuss questions and makes me feel like I am important. As busy as the practice is he always has time for his patients!
