I recommend Dr. Wheatley to anyone who wants a doctor who sits down with you and explains your health issues with you. So many doctors do not take the time with their patients to go over such important information, they leave the exam room with their pants on fire. Dr. Wheatley cares for his patients and it shows. Great doctor!
