    Felt like he recommends the same thing to everyone and mainly prescribes & promotes meds in his own interest.

    Dr.Wheeler has been my Gyn for over 15 years. I trust his medical opinion in all health matters. I have always found him kind, concerned and with my best interests at heart. He cares about me as a whole person. I always feel that I have received the 'best' when I have my appointments with him.

    Stay away from this doctor. He is incredibly inappropriate and WILL put you on 200 mg of spironolactone as he did to me, my mother, my sister and anyone I recommended to him. He bullied me into staying on my medication when he KNEW I didn't have a thyroid problem. He told me I had insulin resistance, but never took a glucose test. He told me I was the hot sister before giving me a pap smear. UGH WORST DOCTOR IN TOWN!

    When I confronted Dr. Wheeler about a blatant oversight regarding my care, rather than accepting responsibility, he insulted and belittled me for several minutes and referred me to another doctor. After polling cohorts who I knew saw him as well, I found that almost all had stopped seeing him because of incompetent care and repulsive bedside manner. He even conducted my well woman exam without asking if I was still breastfeeding or if menstruation had resumed yet since giving birth. INCOMPETENT.
