I would like to share a few thoughts. Dr. Whalen was like a second father to me on all of my visits, over 25 years. He was our Family doctor also for many years.
A few stories I would like to share.
I have niece that is alive today
do to his swift action of Dr. Whalen. I placed a called to Dr Whalen to express my concern about my niece condition, she was not getting the care from her current doctors . I give him my observations over the phone and within 2 hours she was admitted to Stanford Children Oncology Hospital. One more day and she may have not made it.
That was 30 years ago she is doing great and in the medical field herself.
Dr Whalen also was so thorough with my father's care. He found a malignant tumor, caught it in an early stage. I had my dad for another 20 plus years.
I will think of Dr. Whalen often and his teachings for the rest of my life.
Dr. Whalen my thanks to you,
Francis Watkins Jr.

Dr. Whalen was one amazing man I had the pleasure of working for for almost 17 years. He was like a dad to me and will always have a special place in my heart as well as many others. He was a fantastic doctor and a wonderful man. He will be greatly miss.
Dearest Dr. Whalen - To me you were so many things - a teacher, my boss for eight years, my mentor, my friend, and my proxy grandpa. The world lost a wonderful man and medicine lost an amazing doctor. Rest well and peacefully - thank you for all you were to so many people.
