Ervin Wheeler, MD Reviews (151)


Dr. Wheeler was very professional, and he is an artist! He can make very realistic results. And couldn’t be happier with the results!

Face Lift

Dr. Wheeler and his staff are so kind and compassionate. Dr. Wheeler is one of the best in his field and I couldn’t be happier with my results. It is so natural and not overdone. I look 15 years younger. He really listens to his patients. Thanks Dr. Wheeler!

Breast Augmentation

My daughter [name] recently had breast augmentation. She is beyond thrilled with the results. She looks and feels fantastic! We couldn’t be happier with Dr Wheeler and his staff. Everyone was so nice and Professional. They really made the whole experience nice for her.

Treatment / Procedure

Dr. Wheeler and his staff at LJCSC were awesome! Everyone made me feel so comfortableand made my surgery experience there so amazing. I am very satisfied with the resultsand would highly recommend them to anyone.


The best thing about the procedure is the continual joy I get when I see myself in a mirror or photo! The confidence that I have in my nose and overall appearance is the gift that keeps on giving. . I am in love with my nose post-rhinoplasty! Dr. Wheeler did the most beautiful job and the results exceeded my expectations. Interestingly, since surgery I have gotten compliments that my eyes and lips look bigger! Strange how changing one feature can alter others (or their perception) as well. The staff was also so kind and professional! My one difficulty was with the pain meds post-surgery. I became very sick from them, and don’t think my pain necessitated them. I wish that I had been advised to start with ibuprofen or Tylenol first, and if needed move to something stronger.


Professional, clean, courteous [Single best thing is...] Getting the results I wanted.


I’ve had several surgeries with Dr. Wheeler and have been very satisfied with all of them and his staff is always been top notch! [Single best thing is...] It gave me my figure back
