Love him, he saved my life during my surgery. When other drs blew me off he took my case and did the surgery. I had complications that were not expected and because of him I’m alive and well. At 25 years old I have aortic valve replacement, aneurysm graft(bentall procedure) and a triple bypass.. he came and seen me in hospital every day while I was there.. now it’s almost 2 years later and all is going great and I’ve have a baby. He was/ is the best.

Dr. Wheatley is extremely generous with his time. He is knowledgeable and patient. He speaks precisely and has an intuition about the right amount of detail that he should provide in layman's terms so I can easily understand the disease state and remediation that he is recommending. He has remarkable active listening skills so I feel that he understands my thoughts and feelings. He is even willing to even discuss the vitamins and supplements that I’d like to take.

Dr. Wheatley saved my life. I had 2 heart attacks before I saw him and he said I was trending for a third. He did 2 grafts and I'm alive 6 months later and doing well.

Had a good check-up with Dr Wheatley 3 months after a PEARS operation in London. I arrived in the morning at the medical center and had an MRI and echo scan, followed by an appointment in the afternoon to assess the results with Dr Wheatley. All went efficiently with no problems, with a good level of care.

When I first met Dr. Wheatley, I was very nervous. I knew I had a serious situation with my health, but I didn’t know what I was going to do. Dr. Wheatley made me comfortable about the procedure and I knew he had checked on me because he asked me questions that he could only know from my file. Well, to sum it all up, Dr. Wheatley saved my life. He even came and checked on me when his schedule allowed for it while I was in the hospital. If I could give more stars I would.

Without Dr. Wheatley, I probably would not be here! He performed ascending aortic aneurysm surgery on me, Jan. 17, 2017. After reviewing his outstanding credentials, meeting him and his staff, I felt total trust in his abilities and my faith in God. He told me, he would "fix me"! I realize now, and after medical complications, just how serious the surgery was. Dr. Wheatley, even came to the hospital on his day off, to my rescue! Being compassionate and amiable, amplifies his expertise.

Went to Dr. Wheatly for a second opinion. Never so happy that we met. From first moment I knew I was at the right place with the right Doctor. I would highly recommend Him to anyone facing similar heart issues. The follow up was great.

As a former staff physician of CMC for some 37 years, and as a member of the Nashville Hospital Liaison Committee for Jehovah's Witnesses, I have been extremely impressed by the dignified and respectful care that Dr. Grayson Wheatley provides for his cardiovascular heart disease patients and family. Dr. Wheatley is very willing to provide expert care for patients that wish not to receive blood transfusions whether for religious or other reasons. I heartily recommend Dr. Wheatley.

I was recommended to Dr. Wheatley by my Cardiologist who said if he wasn't the best that he was one of the best in this country. I had a great experience. The after care recommended and provided was great too. I would recommend Dr. Grayson Wheatley without reservation.

Dr. Wheatley has been a tremendous resource for those patients who need lifesaving surgery without blood transfusions. I have been able to recommend him to many of my friends and he has been a real lifesaver, literally for them. I recommend him always for anyone with heart issues.

Dr. Wheatley has been the most knowledgeable doctor we have encountered for this procedure. My husband was not aware that he had the an enlarged aortic artery and under the guidance of Karl Van Devender and Grayson Wheatley he has taken steps to monitor and treat this condition. Dr. Wheatley has been very articulate in the new procedures available to remedy this anomaly. My husband and I were so pleased with Dr. Wheatley's care that we referred a family member to hIm for surgical treatment.
