Approach

Dr. Whitney was born in Texas and has lived in the Lone Star State her entire life. She grew up in McAllen, later moving to Houston to attend Rice University for her undergraduate degree in Biology and then Baylor College of Medicine for her medical degree. After medical school, Dr. Whitney moved to the great city of San Antonio for a one-year Internal Medicine internship followed by Ophthalmology residency, both at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio. During her residency, she conducted research in diabetic retinopathy and optics, presenting at both the Alamo City Ophthalmology conference and the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology conference in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Following residency training, Dr. Whitney completed the ophthalmology board certification process, becoming a full member of the American Board of Ophthalmology. She worked several years as a faculty member with the University of Texas Health Science Center, teaching ophthalmology residents and medical students. In the fall of 2013, Dr. Whitney joined San Antonio Eye Center. In addition to her ophthalmology practice, Dr. Whitney is a fluent Spanish speaker and an avid musician and artist. Dr. Whitney is also a devoted Spurs fan, splitting her time between cheering Tim Duncan’s leadership and lamenting Manu Ginobili’s baffling inconsistency.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Whitney was kind enough to receive me out of schedule because I had a small emergency with my left eye and she gave her time to find out the problem and refer me to a Specialist to help me seal my retina

How was your experience with the doctor?Overall very happy. Wait was somewhat long, and the appointment itself was long. But this was an opthaopthamology appt. Those tend to take a while.

How was your experience with the doctor?Front office staff was very unprofessional. I gave the office staff 2 forms of identification; drivers license and military ID. I was then advised that the practice required them to take a photo ID. I advised the office that you have 2 photo ID, that is enough to confirm my identity. I have had to deal with identity theft. When I made my appointment I asked if I would be required to take a photo. I was then advised... Yes they do take pictures of there patients, but I could opt out as long as they could verify my identity. So, again, 2 pictures ID' should have been enough. My appointment was at 730. The office doors did not open until 750.

How was your experience with the doctor?The wait time was due to an emergency she had to deal with. I certainly did not hold that against her due to the fact I know should we have an emergency she would take time with us as she did her emergency patient today. I would give her 5 stars Wb
