I am pleased with Dr. Wheatley. He is easy to talk to and discusses and explains everything with you in a way that's easy to understand for folks like me who don't understand doctor lingo. He and is staff have taken very good care of me and I am very thankful.

Dr. Wheatley performed a Bicuspid Aorta Tissue Valve Replacement on my mother. It took her several months and 3 cardiologists later before he was the one to gain her trust. He did not disappoint as his care and concern for his patient was the #1 priority through the entire process. My mom is doing outstanding and we couldn't be happier with the outcome of the surgery, the care from staff, and treatment! Thank you Dr. Wheatley for caring for our Mother!
