Dr. Wheeler is awesome. He removed my cancer and the scar is very minimal. Can barely tell that I had anything cut off my face.

I'd never been checked by a dermatologist and thought it best to get an exam. I was so impressed with Dr. Wheeler's care, patience, and phenomenal personality! He took time to explain every procedure he found and how he took care of the few problems he attended to. I also found Dr. Wheeler's entire staff to be the medical dream team with genuine smiles and professional concern for my health. I consider Dr. Wheeler to be the Doctor's Doctor and highly recommend him to you.

I had an allergic reaction to an antibiotic Dr. Wheeler prescribed. I called and they said to stop the meds and they would get back to me in 48 hours. They never called back. I finally called them 9 days later. They say Dr. Wheeler does not call patients, and I needed to wait till my follow-up. All I wanted was an alternative antibiotic. What is the point of a follow up if you were unable to take the medication. I do not recommend Dr. Wheeler or the clinic.

Money grubbr he doesn't care all about the patients with a psycho front desk clerk. Especially the blond with the 5,000 dollar watch . I'm sure the patients footed,that bill.

Very poor experience. Front desk told me they accepted my insurance. two weeks later, I got a large bill. They aren't providers, after all. He started freezing pre-cancers. I've had this done many many times. The spray was used for a split second. He started counting out loud to his asst. at the first freezing spray... ....five, six, seven , eight, and so on. I've never had more than two or three areas to freeze. Of course, he was paid for five or six times that number.

He did not ask about my concerns. He removed two growths and ran a nitrogen gun over the backs of my hands. There was no evidence he treated anything on my hands but he billed for treating 15 places on my hands. He missed a pre cancerous growth 6 inches from one area he removed on my neck. The growth was treated by another dermatologist 3 months later. I believe he took advantage of me. When I left they insisted I schedule another appointment within 1 month. I refused.
