Ervin Wheeler, MD Reviews (260)

Arm Lift

Dr. Wheeler is not only kind but also highly qualified to perform any of the procedures listed previously. I have had other areas treated by him as well regarding a large weight loss in my early 20’s. He is direct and honest and will say exactly what he needs to say and as a patient I appreciate his direct honesty.

Breast Implant Revision

The surgery went really well. I am very happy with the results from my breast removal and replacement. Staff did follow up calls to ensure I was doing well. [Single best thing is...] They look very natural not fake!

Fat Transfer

Dr. wheeler is so kind. He took time to look at me, tell me approximate cc amount being placed, drew a picture of my face and described to me what he was gonna do. Didn't try to sell me, his prices are fair not overly inflated like some Dr.s who inflate their prices every 6 months for the same procedure.
