Dominique and Shay were very helpful in the procedure that I needed. They took every possible option to make sure that I did not leave the same way I came in. I was very pleased with the assistance and hospitality these two, along with Dr. Wheeler, exhibited at my visit and I am glad I choose them as my primary care physician.

Moved from Texas last year. My daughter recommended Dr. James Wheeler and I'm so happy she did. My favorite all time doctor. Dr. Wheeler always quickly determines what is ailing me. Today he got me a quick appointment with an Eye specialist for an issue unrelated to my checkup. He also has great "bedside manner." His office staff are always courteous and efficient.

Dr. Wheeler is a fantastic medical practitioner. He's a no nonsense down to earth guy who is an attentive, kind, and very intelligent doctor. I actually look forward to my appointments with him which is not something I've ever really felt before about a doctors appointment .

Choosing Dr. Wheeler as my General Practitioner was one of the best decisions I've ever made!

Upon seeing Dr. Wheeler the 1st time, he could tell something was wrong and sent me to a neurologist which lead him to find a very large brain aneurysm... I still feel if it were not for Dr. Wheeler I would not be here today! I had been seeing another doctor for five years before and he had found nothing. Thank You Dr. Wheeler!

I have had not so great doctors in the past, so it's so refreshing to have a doctor who is always smiling when you see him, always attentive and is so willing to help.
