Dr Wheeler was wonderful to my step-Father and my late husband. And to me & my children. Although when I met him while my Daddy was ill and I thought he was a cold fish , when I met him again when my husband was sick it finally dawned on me that just protection for him. A screen. A front. He was and IS A WONDERFUL person. His care for my husband & daddy was great. If I get ill I want him for my Doctor!!!
