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.

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.
