I really don't know what his review should be. If I go by his work alone, he's excellent. If I go by his attitude, he's lousy. My surgery was well done and the holes from the ortho surgery are hardly noticeable. He is crass, cocky, mean and inpersonable.

Went in with intense shoulder pain. After X-ray, he came in- was incredibly short with me, would not let me explain the situation. Kept saying 'do something that hurts' I said everything I do, hurts. He sent me for X-ray on my neck, after the exam. He came back in, said my neck was beautiful and Dx trigger points. Said they're from laziness, gave me a shot and follow up in 1 month. Second opinion, X-ray and MRI = comp disc and herniation in neck- Dr Wheeler treated me like a lazy drug seeker.

I have received very prompt treatment for my knee issues. Although they recommended surgery as the fix for the problem, they respected the fact that I didn't want to have another surgery at the time and they were able to offer a treatment that would delay the need for another surgery for several years.

Dr. Wheeler and his staff is very knowledgeable when it comes to sports medicine. He is very honest and didn't hint around with different treatment options with me. He took plenty of time to explain what was going on and what the next step was. He even then went and took his notes in the room so he would have it all accurate and done in a timely manner I believe. I will go back for any orthopedic issues and would recommend friends and family. Awesome staff too!!
