Gainesboro, TN |
I highly recommend Dr. Wheelock. He has a calm, reassuring presence and clearly explains the details of your issue. His staff are always courteous and kind. When calling for an immediate appointment, I have seen him within 2 days. When I was originally diagnosed with early stage uterine cancer, the consultation, biopsy procedure, and hysterectomy were completed in less than 6 weeks. These quick responses are a blessing when anxious and uncertain of what is happening to you. Dr. Wheelock ??

I recently went in to see Dr. Wheelock for my six week check up from having a tumor removed and ovaries taken out. And one of the things that I found was how great he was to talk to, and he makes you so comfortable to be able to talk to him. He is very kind and understanding and can tell he cares for his patients. I would highly recommend anyone to go to him. Pamela E. Hughes

Everyone was efficient and kind. I had no wait time which I appreciated and even saw the Dr a few minutes prior to the scheduled appointment time. I was impressed by the flow of the office, it seemed to run like a well oiled machine. All of my questions were answered regardless of how silly they were. (hey, we all have random quirks that worry us).

Dr. Wheelock is a wonderful physician! His willingness to listen to my "story" was so comforting and resulted in a thorough assessment of the situation. He eased my mind in a stressful situation and prevented me from having unnecessary surgery. His staff was extremely caring and compassionate. I highly recommend Dr. Wheelock.
Smyrna, TN |
Dr. Wheelock is wonderful. I would highly recommend him! He is easy to talk with, calming, and his staff is terrific. I felt well informed about my recent surgery and he answered all of my questions thoroughly. I've had a good experience as his patient!
in Livingston, TN |
Always willing to spend the time and answer any questions. Review any scan and is proactive in finding any new problems. Could never ask for better care. After 3 years I am still here.
Clarksville, TN |
My experience with Dr. Wheelock and his staff has been above excellent! I can't say enough good things about Dr. Wheelock and his office for the care that they have given me. I would highly recommend Dr. Wheelock. After my surgery, the time that he spent with my family explaining the procedure and answering all their questions was amazing.
in Allons, TN |
I have bern a patient of Dr. Wheelock's for almost 4 years. He and is staff are the best! I never feel rushed through an appointment, my questions are always answered in a way that I understand what I need to know, and I trust that Dr. Wheelock and my chemo nurses are giving me the best care possible. I have recommended him to many friends and will not hesitate to do so in the future.

I have been a patient of Dr. Wheelock for 7 years. The kindness and efficiency of the office and staff is remarkable. I have experienced being seen by a few PA's. I have been very impressed with the previous individuals. The PA that I met at this visit left me feeling incomplete. She was pleasant and knowledgable but just did not have the patience or bedside manner that is standard for Dr. Wheelock and the office. Its not a complaint but an honest observation.
in Antioch, TN |
Dr. Wheelock is very caring and compassionate. He explained things in a way I understood them. Laid out very clearly what the best options for me were.
Hendersonville, TN |
Very caring and takes time to explain and answer all your questions.
in Fairview, TN |
I would highly recommend Dr. Wheelock and his practice to anyone! I recently was referred to him after an abnormal PAP result. From the initial consultation through the biopsy and eventual hysterectomy, Dr. Wheelock was very reassuring and took the time to explain everything. He has a way about him that makes you feel that everything is going to be all right. Everyone in his practice is the same way - friendly and goes out of their way to make you feel like an appreciated patient.

The best oncologist in the South!

At the age of 56 I had to have the first operation of my life. Needless to say I was a bit nervous. Dr. Wheelock & the entire staff made it an easier experience for me. They calmed me down & talked me through it all. The care before, during & after surgery could not have been better. These are the people you want to take care of you when you need their type of service.

He is the very best. He is calm, responsive, empathetic, and a genuine healer. We talked to a number of people who were Dr. Wheelock's patients, and everyone felt the same way. He is supremely knowledgeable and gentle. I felt like I was the Queen at Buckingham Palace.
in Hendersonville, TN |
Dr. Wheelock is the nicest doctor I have ever had. He immediately made me feel at ease with his gentle bedside manner. He was very thorough in explaining my options as well as the procedure. The procedure went as planned and I am on the road to recovery.

Dr. Wheelock essentially saved my life. After being diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of cervical cancer (Small Cell Neuroendocrine Carcinoma of the Cervix) he and his staff did everything possible to save my life. Seven years later and I am still cancer free from a cancer that was sure to take my life. He truly has a God given gift.

My mother now has only 3 months to live because of this so called Doctor. She was diagnosed one year ago last February with a highly aggressive uterine cancer. He did a hysterectomy and said she did not need any further treatment because it had not spread outside the pollop inside her uterus. Because of his lack of preventative treatment, the cancer returned a year later. I am losing my mom because of this man. If there was a negative star rating that is what I'd give him.
in Gallatin, tn |
I had surgery by Dr. Wheelock and chemotherapy with his staff and I have one word to describe all of them -- incredible!! I cannot thank my gynecologist enough for referring me to Dr. Wheelock -- he literally saved my life!
Nashville, TN |
Very disappointed the day of surgery as I was scheduled early in the morning but did not start until after 12.Was placed in big room where all of DR Wheelock's patients came in and out or surgery and I experienced watching all that while laying in bed alone.I honestly felt like cattle being pushed through.This made me more nervous than I already was. Other than that, staff and Dr Wheelock were friendly and very professional.No issues after my surgery.
in Clarksville, TN |
Did not have to wait long. Office was very clean. He and his nurse was very friendly, positive attitude and explained what I was looking at and how it was going to be accomplished. Was not scary at all.
