Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Wheeler is kind, thoughtful, an artist, and he goes above and beyond to address any concerns or issues I may have had in terms of my recovery. Dr. Wheeler showed compassion and understanding when I was unable to make my surgery date due to the illness and death of a family member. The entire staff treated me in a warm and professional manner, their attention to detail and kindness was overwhelming. Thank you all for kindness. The single best experience was when I was unable to make my appointment date and in tears called the office and said I so sorry but I was emotional and drained from care giving a family member. The staff showed support and compassion, Dr. Wheeler set another date and was able to move forward with the surgery a few weeks later.
