He helped me twice with lower back and neck pain. Improvement has lasted many years.

I've been seeing Dr. Wheeler since I was 15 years old. He is FANTASTIC. It's hard to be 15 with back issues and it's scary. Dr. Wheeler always made me feel comfortable and knew the right words to say to make my diagnosis make sense to me. He knew that I did not want to give up my cheerleading and always found ways to compromise so I could still do what I love while I was healing. Aside from being a great doctor; he genuinely cares about his patient's lives and make that apparent every visit.

Wow. This guy has the biggest "God" complex and give doctors a really bad name. If the activity or experience does not have HIM at the center of attention, he throws himself to the ground kicking and stomping his feet the way my 3 year old does. If you want someone to have their personal and egotistical needs put in front of true patient care, then by all means, Sean Wheeler is your guy! I would never entrust my care or my kids' care to him!!

Dr. Sean Wheeler is a very kind and caring doctor. He's very passionate about pain control, without heavily sedating the patient with powerful narcotics.. I've seen Dr. Wheeler in his office 3 times. After having steroid injections, twice, I've now been pain free for the past 4 days. I can't remember the last time I could say that I was having zero pain in lower back, and hip. After my last experience with a pain mgmnt. clinic, I vowed it would be my last. Glad I gave it one more shot!
