Dr. Whalen is a great surgeon and a wonderful man. He is always honest and ip-front with me. He performed 4 surgeries on me within a four and a half month time period. I was very pleased with his performance and knowledge.

I came to Dr Whelan for a surgery consult. He and his staff were excellent even though he had to deliver news I did not want to hear i.e. I have to have more extensive surgery than I hoped.

Had a double hernia operation. Everything went smoothly. Recovery time better than expected. Everything was very professional, courteous, and enlightening. Could not have asked for better care in any way.

Dr. Whelan is caring and understanding. I saw him in the hospital, and during an office visit, and he never seemed to be rushed or distracted. He took the time to sit down and have a conversation about my health and addressed all my concerns and questions.

very pleased with Dr. Whelan, on my first visit for surgery I was scared because of my age. he took time to explain it and listened to me and my concerns. my family was pleased. They would come to him if needed.
