The Dr. WC Experience
There are no words I can write in this review to express what Dr.Whalen Clark has done for me. I went to several doctors/specialists, and they all said there was nothing they could do but refer me to pain management. I had a hernia repair surgery in 2019 that resulted in excruciating pain 24/7 for the past two years.
They took x-rays, did tests, and all of them told me there was nothing wrong internally. The surgery just created nerve damage, and my only option was pain management. Even the original surgeon told me the same. I can't explain the pain I was going through every day, all the time, like a knife scraping through my skin.
I had no options but pain management which was the worst experience. I had given up, but I decided to give it one more shot and looked up surgeons one more time in my area, and I saw Dr. Whalen's profile.
I decided to give it one last shot, and I set up an appointment. When I called, the team was super friendly, explained everything in detail, and I was all set to see Doc Whalen.
I arrived at the office, and again, the team there gave exceptional care and were all super helpful.
I sat with Dr. Whalen, and he gave it to me straight; nothing was showing up in the labs, so he told me that exploration was the best option. Not one of the doctors gave me that option. He explained the risks and the procedure in detail. I agreed immediately, the only doctor who gave me a chance, that gave me faith.
The medical staff treated me so nicely and professionally. I was so comfortable it made me feel like everything would work out and that everything would be ok. I was prepped, Doc Whalen came and explained everything one more time, and that was it, lights out.
I woke up feeling almost no pain with the staff right there waiting for me to wake up. Dr. WC came over and explained what he found.
There were issues with the mesh. It was creating scar tissue and constricting/deteriorating a tube which was the cause of my pain. He cleaned it all up and replaced the mesh with a new and better one. All I was thinking about was not feeling that pain anymore; the joy of hearing that there was an issue and they resolved it gave me relief.
I walked out of there no problem, went home, and went through the recovery process.
I did exactly what they told me to do. I was still able to walk and do things, which was crazy because the first hernia surgery recovery was horrible, I couldn't even walk for a week, so I knew Dr. Clark did an incredible job. I could feel it!
Today I feel like a whole new person! The pain is gone; the pain that had made my life hell, the pain that stopped me from living my life, playing with my kids, the pain that prevented me from working out has finally gone away. There are no words, even in this lengthy review 😂 that can express my gratitude for Dr. Whalen. He gave me my life back and didn't give up on me as so many others did.
IAM PAIN-FREE! My recovery was excellent and almost over.
To Dr. Whalen's staff at Florida Medical, you have been so professional and caring for my needs. Thank you all so much.
Thank you to Jessica, who is a gift from god! She always had the time to see me or answer any questions I had throughout this whole journey.
To Dr. Whalen, you are a gift to the Medical field and a master at your craft. You gave me my life back, you didn't give up like the others.
There are no words or reviews I can write that express my gratitude for what you did for me. I am so grateful that I found you. I hope others do too because you are a fantastic, amazing, professional, incredible, gifted surgeon.
Thank you, DR. Whalen Clark."
