Decatur, GA |
I have been with Dr Wheeler for almost 10 years. I love that she listens to me and works with me to make sure I am well taken care of. She is very responsive to emails through the FMH portal. I usually receive a response within a day, even on weekends. It can be hard to get an appointment, usually it's a long wait. I know to schedule well in advance and since she's so responsive to emails I always feel like I can get care or answers even I don't have an appointment.

She is the worse endocrinologist I have ever seen. She could or would not manage my medications correctly. She did not care I was getting worse under her care. She was more concerned about money I gather than whether her patient was adequately cared for.

Dr. Wheeler is patient, kind, & listens to everything you say. She respects my knowledge as a nurse, explains things thoroughly, & even draws pictures if necessary. Dr. Wheeler treats symptoms and not just lab values. I told 4 doctors I was miserable; but because my labs looked normal, they refused to treat me. The first time I saw Dr. Wheeler, she immediately recognized my hypothyroid symptoms & prescribed Synthroid. I felt the best I had felt in almost 5 years! She is AWESOME!
in Newnan, GA |
Dr. Wheeler is a phenomenal doctor that has a genuine concern for her patient's health and welfare. She asks me questions about what's going on with me before I even ask. She truly is a competent and caring doctor that wants the best for her patients. She has always taken the time to engage me in conversation and explain everything in complete detail so I always feel respected and care for when I leave. Her staff is a wonderful team of caring people as well.
