Care Philosophy

Pain causes weakness, weakness causes pain. To treat one, you have to treat the other. I treat neck/shoulder pain, low back pain, and all non-surgical sports injuries.

Dr Wheeler is very personable and he explains well on our level. Glad Dr Reilly referred him to me. Also saying a prayer before procedures is needed more in this world.

Dr Wheeler uses a common sense approach. He determines the root cause of a persons pain and recommends treatment accordingly.
Thank you for the positive feedback! We appreciate the kind words.

For eight years, I have struggled with varying degrees of lower back pain. Because Dr. Wheeler has been so helpful in developing a diagnosis and treatment, I am convinced that, with time, I can be fully functional again. He is a great listener who has the patience to explain procedures and answer questions. And, his book is really interesting and informative.
We strive to provide the highest quality in patient care. Thank you so much for sharing this story with us!

Dr. Wheeler is amazing. He truly cares about his patients...finding the absolute best way to ease their pain. I always feel part of the family...so confident that he will do everything he can to help make quality of life a priority. He's a very bright, caring, compassionate physician and I trust him implicitly.
Thank you for the positive feedback! We appreciate the kind words.

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!
