What People Say About Dr. William Wharton III, MD

Dr. Wharton has been my Cardiologist for 19 years now, and I would recommend him to anyone. He is an extremely knowledgeable Doctor, and has a deep caring attitude towards his patients. He has a wonderful sense of humor, but when he needs to be serious, he is, with a kindness in his voice that makes you know, everything will be alright. He listens to what you have to say, and returns an assuring, interested answer. He never disregards anything about his patients.
