Dr. Whistler has consistently been the best care provider I have had for 2 decades. He understands arthritis and knows more than I can Google and that is very appreciated. Dr. Whistler is caring and he listens while at the same time giving spot on advice and care in an efficient way. I never have to wait in this clinic; the staff and flow are always on schedule.
