Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Wheeler "As a primary care physician, I view my role as a partner in helping patients prevent and manage diseases through lifestyle modification, support networks and occasionally through medication or surgery.  Wellness is a way of life not medication list, and I hope to work with patients to create a culture of healthy living in their families.

As a sports medicine physician and activity junkie, I am well trained in diagnosing and treating a variety of musculoskeletal conditions in young athletes, weekend warriors, and in seasoned veterans. I realize how important it is to keep people in shape to enjoy their active lifestyles.  I also understand how to help expedite recovery from injuries so that folks can return to the activities that they love as quickly as possible.   "
