I didn’t know what to expect since I had never been to a cardiologist before. Dr.Wheatley is professional, friendly, spends time listening , and explains the plan of care. I had a test done , results unknown yet, but I have confidence Dr. Wheatley will explain the next course of action on this team effort. Don’t forget his amazing staff... they and Dr. Wheatley provide a great team effort towards providing great patient care. Thanks for caring so much.

I love that I didn't have to drive into Nashville to see a Cardiologist. I was seen quickly and felt that Dr. Wheatley took his time to talk to me and answer my questions.

Dr. Wheatley is a well respected, highly skilled cardiologist but what makes getting care from him even better is that he really takes the time to listen and his answers don't sound like "well, that's just how it's done" sort of answers, he takes the time to go over options and helps you be part of each decision. His staff is great, too.
