In Feb. 2017, I shattered my kneecap when I fell on a wet bathroom floor. Dr. Wheeler repaired the kneecap, and I am back to the usual activities of a 69 yr. young woman. I can recommend Dr. Wheeler with much confidence!
in Flowery Branch, GA |
Dr Wheeler performed surgery on both of my hands for trigger release. He is very easy to talk to, listens and gives a lot of insight on the diagnosis. I will not see anyone else now! He is my guy!
