The office called prior to the visit to get me online for the Zoom call. Went fine.

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.

I waited way too long in the exam room before being seen by the Doctor - I'll bring a book next time & plan accordingly

no issues - only issue was long wait time

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

I have recommended Dr. Whirrett to several people- 2 friends & 1 neighbor. She is a great listener and eager to help me.

I think it worked well because we have an established doctor/patient relationship. Not sure how well it would work for new patients.

Dr. Whirrett's staff is extremely nice; it's a pleasure to deal with them - and easy to get them on the phone.

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!

This was a virtual visit. I was in my living room the whole time.
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.

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.

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.
