    Dr. Whetstone is an amazing combination of competence confidence and warmth. I told my husband after the visit how I had started to think my expectations of doctors was too high turns out I just hadn't found a great one yet.

    Dr. Whetstone was amazing! She listen to every concern and guided me through options. We came up with a long and short term plan that was based around my wants and needs! I would recommend her to anyone in my situation and I look forward to continuing my care with her!

    I spent very little time with the care provider which was disappointing.

    Dr Whetstone has mastered the art time efficiency. My visit was short yet thorough professional and pleasant. Amazing! And she was able to answer all my questions at a level that made me comfortable and not rushed. She was made for medicine. May God continue to bless her and her entire team! As her MA and Med Stu. Were ROCK STARS- really patient and professional. I honestly didn't feel rushed at all from start to finish
