Dr Whirrett
Nov 22, 2020
this was my first visual visit and was a little confused but I think it was be much easier next time. It was me and not knowing exactly what to do.
Nov 19, 2020
I got the link the first time and I filled it all out and paid for it and when it was time for my visit I had to reveify and then go through the questions I did the first time when I registered and then it allowed me to get to the zoom call. I think if you completed all docs then when its time for your appt it should verify then go to the visit.

She was wonderful.
Nov 11, 2020
Dr. Whirrett listened carefully to my main concerns during my visit and proposed a plan of care involving less blood pressure medication with careful home monitoring. she also approved the efforts I'm making to eat more healthy foods and to increase exercise. she is an amazing listener.

I have an advanced degree and a number of years in Critical Care Nursing. This provider was recommended to me by another physician. My daughter also saw this physician a couple of years ago, and really liked her
Nov 11, 2020
This provider is very approachable, very down to earth, and willing to listen
Nov 11, 2020
She's very good at her job
Nov 11, 2020
They adhere to Covid standards/precautions and I feel safe from acquiring the virus there.

Nov 8, 2020
Entire staff very friendly, professional, and work well together.
Oct 22, 2020
Dr. Whirrett is a welcome change from my past physicians that were in and out in 5 minutes and never had time for questions.
Oct 22, 2020
The front desk staff is always friendly and efficient.
Oct 21, 2020
This woman was all business but still gentle. she was the most efficient person in that office. I requested a flu shot while in the exam room and she still got it to me before I saw the doctor.
Oct 21, 2020
some of these questions don't apply because this doctor could see my medical history from my previous primary care doctor who has since left my insurance network.
Oct 21, 2020
very good.
Oct 21, 2020
She's always nice and listens.
Oct 21, 2020
I would recommend Dr. Whirrett to anyone. My granddaughter also goes to her. Dr. is very good with both young and old l, like me.
Oct 21, 2020
The registration was a little annoying. It just kept going.
Oct 21, 2020
the virus has made life so precious. I wonder if I actually need to see a doctor. But I've been in pain with my hip and I'm diabetic. the office was clean, chairs distant apart and the office and nurse and Dr. we're all very good. My questions were all answered.
Oct 12, 2020
I had had alot of procedures in Maryland, so I came with my books for Dr. Whirrett if she asked questions. I had copies for her, some she took. We reviewed my medicines and got referrals for other doctors at that time.
Oct 12, 2020
When I checked my visit on line, I noticed my medicine list was not complete from what I handed in. I will call the office regarding this. Few of the medicines were left off. Stated I had dementia. I said I was not diagnosed with it. Just had grey area so Dr. Sanghavi, neurologist, put me on Memantine and Donepzil as a precaution. My Mom had Alzheimer's Disease. Referrals for Neurology, Gastroenterology and reclast for osterporsis. Overall I think Dr. Whirrett listened to my history.
Oct 12, 2020
Good.
Oct 12, 2020
All good.
Oct 12, 2020
Registration all good.
Oct 12, 2020
I just moved from Maryland in August, 2020 and was 5 minutes late as I got lost. No problem was taken as soon as I got there.

I didn't know the portral had been switched, I got no response from the old portal for a week and finally had to call to make an appointment.
Sep 14, 2020
very pleased
Aug 28, 2020
Dr Whirrett is wonderful! She was so helpful and easily accessible in answering my multiple questions about a new medication she started me on.
Aug 22, 2020
There are only good things to say
Aug 21, 2020
Lynn is excellent!!
Aug 10, 2020
This was a virtual visit so these are really not applicable.
Aug 6, 2020
Virtual appointment
Aug 6, 2020
My assessment is based off a virtual doctor's appointment as I did not go into the office, per new COVID guidelines. The Dr. was very friendly and knowledgeable. I felt comfortable speaking with her.
Aug 6, 2020
My appointment was made by a hospital nurse to help me with getting scheduled efficiently. My first appointment was virtual. The nurse called me a little before it started in the morning and a few minutes later sent me a Zoom like link. The doctor started the call about 25 minutes late, but talked with me for 30 minutes. So I'm happy!
Aug 3, 2020
I believe she must have punctured through my vein as I have a very large bruise going up and down around my elbow that's still black and blue 4 days later. I give blood regularly and never have a problem, so it's likely not an issue with my veins.
Jul 29, 2020
Dr W is the best
Jul 29, 2020
Always friendly and courteos
Jul 12, 2020
This was my first visit as a new patient of Dr. Whirrett. I had seen her once before because my regular doctor was unavailable. During this Zoom visit, she had my medical records and lab results and went over them. We talked about my only recent concern, which was varying blood pressure readings. She listened carefully, looked at me more than she did her computer, and explained it might be a good idea to bring in my blood pressure cuff to make sure it was accurate. Overall, I was really impressed with her, especially given that it was a virtual visit.
Jul 12, 2020
The office called prior to the visit to get me online for the Zoom call. Went fine.
Jul 4, 2020
overall experience was fine / acceptable
Jul 4, 2020
staff were thoughtful to stop by a couple of times & acknowledge the long wait
Jul 4, 2020
there was minimal/no discussion w/the physician & I, regarding options, etc Rather the Doctor simply confirmed the issue and immediately transitioned to prescribing me a medication
Jul 4, 2020
no issues - only issue was long wait time
Jul 4, 2020
I waited way too long in the exam room before being seen by the Doctor - I'll bring a book next time & plan accordingly
Jul 2, 2020
Very easy to schedule .
Jun 27, 2020
I think it worked well because we have an established doctor/patient relationship. Not sure how well it would work for new patients.
Jun 27, 2020
I have recommended Dr. Whirrett to several people- 2 friends & 1 neighbor. She is a great listener and eager to help me.
Jun 19, 2020
I just love DR. Wherritt
Jun 15, 2020
She did not bother to take my blood pressure with the manual cuff. Just the automatic. Which I never registered correctly on the automatic blood pressure cuff
Jun 15, 2020
The staff was pleasant. Overall it was a very good appointment the doctor spent good time with me. Answered all my COVID-19 questions and other questions
Jun 15, 2020
The Doctor took time to listen to all my questions.

Dr. Whirrett is awesome
May 30, 2020
Dr. Whirrett listens carefully and, more importantly, answers carefully. I am always telling others how good she is, and of course give her name to anyone looking for a family doctor. 5 stars from me!
May 30, 2020
Dr. Whirrett's staff is extremely nice; it's a pleasure to deal with them - and easy to get them on the phone.

Apr 20, 2020
My wife intends to make her next GP appointment with Dr Whirrett upon my recommendation
Apr 20, 2020
good
Apr 20, 2020
None of this applies to a virtual visit. The virtual visit was timely and accomplished our purpose.
Apr 20, 2020
My virtual appointment was manage by the Zoom Website which I had never used before. Dr. Whirrett and I could see one another and wave & Smile but we could not hear each other. It was likely a problem I could have solved had I known what I was doing. We were ultimately able to complete the appointment by phone.
Apr 17, 2020

Lynn is always very pleasant and responsive! The entire office is very pleasant and attentive.
Mar 31, 2020
Wonderful experience. Dr Whirrett is a wonderful physician. I have changed physicians several times in the past few years because of dissatisfaction. I finally found a physician and office staff that is an example of what healthcare should be.
Mar 31, 2020
The whole process was smooth and easy.
Mar 31, 2020
She had a smile on her face as soon as I saw her!
Mar 31, 2020
I have already recommended her.
Mar 25, 2020
I understand about waiting. These are unusual times, and an effort was being made to avoid having too many people in one space.
Mar 23, 2020
#2 was not applicable.
Mar 22, 2020
I pulled new-patient forms offline to have them filled out when I showed up but was informed the wrong forms were online. You may want to pull those forms off or update with the new forms.
