We have taken both of our sons to Dr. Wheaton for their circumcisions and I wouldn’t take them anywhere else. He explained the procedure thoroughly, performed the procedure with gentle care, and explained all post circumcision care so we knew how to care for the area. He does a great job!

Dr. Wheaton was our Pediatrician for about 8 years. He is the absolute best. We moved away but would have kept him as our children's doctor. 5 star guy all around! Have not found anyone as good. Count your blessings if you are lucky enough to have him treat your child. Knowledgeable, competent and compassionate, also he is funny and puts the whole family at ease. We miss you Dr. Michael! John, Noah and Hannah from James Island, SC

Dr. Wheaton is the best! He is educated, kind, and truly cares. I recently switched my son's care to Dr. Wheaton from a different pediatrician and have been nothing, but thoroughly impressed. My son has been struggling with ear infections and saw Dr. Wheaton yesterday. This evening I received a call from his office and was surprised to hear Dr. Wheaton on the other end. He simply called to see how my son was feeling and if he was improving. He is truly refreshing in this day and age.
