Dr. Wheeler was by far the best doctor I have ever seen! He gave me answers, explanations, and a treatment planwhen other doctors couldn't even diagnose the issues I was having. He is extremely intelligent, thorough, professional, and personable. I am very grateful for finding him.

First experience with a male DR. and it was a great experience. I felt more comfortable than I was with my female DRs. He gave plenty time to discuss problems and concerns before physical exam. VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE. Found problems that others overlooked. I will be coming back!

I had a very pleasant visit. From the moment I walked in, what would normally be very stressful for me. I was put at ease. With a warm and friendly reception. Dr Wheeler was very knowledgeable and for once I felt like he understood what I have been going through.

I just had my first appointment with Dr. Wheeler and was very impressed with him and his staff. Everyone was warm and friendly from my first conversation on phone with Marla (I hope to have remembered all of their names correctly) to my appointment Dr. Wheeler and the follow up with his assistant Patricia. He was very perceptive and knowledgeable and put me at ease. I will be making another appointment with Dr. Wheeler in the future.

Dr. Wheeler was very pleasant and thorough with my exam. He explained everything to me for me to understand what was going on. He also is very knowledgeable and helpful with questions I had, however, towards the end I felt a bit rushed but nothing too bad maybe because he didn't want to fall behind with other patients so I felt I still needed clarification but I understand he can't hold me in forever:)..
