Dr Wheeler is very nice and ethical who would not want to take advantage of you, but he cares for his patients.

Breast Reduction

I felt confident that I made the right decision after my first consultation because of the professionalism of the whole staff and followed by my discussion with Dr. Wheeler. I appreciated the counseling telling me exactly how the procedure was to be done from beginning, during and after. Knowing what to expect gave me peace of mind during my recovery.

My confidence in the surgeon made me comfortable making this big decision. Staff excellent. The pre-op booklet and post-op written materials were invaluable to me and my recovery team!

Lip Enhancement

I look 15 years younger! Excellent surgeon, wonderful results.

Face Lift

Giving me more confident, high esteem attitude in the office, to socialize with people. Received many compliment about the surgery results which are so good.

Face Lift

Sutures came out the second day leaving a 2 inch opening in my scalp that would not stop bleeding. Doctor said it happens sometimes and it was because of the kind of sutures he was using. I still have very deep lines on my forehead between my eyes, but now I also have red rough spot as well. My mouth still has deep lines pulling down. No one thinks I look better at all. Over $20,000 and I don't look better.

Breast Augmentation

Very professional and caring staff memebers. . I was recommended to Dr.Wheeler from a friend of a friend. I went in for a consult and decided I was more then happy to schedule the surgery. Upon making a payment I did mention to the patient coordinator that I did NOT want to use my credit, and that I was fine paying half cash and the other half in payment through Health Care finance. Come to find out she ran my credit and my score was hit. Besides being upset about her hitting my credit score, I'm satisfied with my surgery and more then happy I chose Dr. Wheeler. He is such a blessing. If I decide to have any other procedures. I'll be taking into consideration about my credit being hit. She obviously was too hung over to clearly hear me say DO NOT RUN MY CREDIT, multiple times. I'm actually going to call the office and have them remove it somehow. I'm very upset about that. I believe the woman's name is Juliana.

Face Lift

very satisfied except for not being told about the swelling on my face especially my eyes. Surgery was Sept 12 and today I sill have blurring vision and eye lids hurt and are extremely swollen, don't remember anyone telling me what to except. Persons are saying I look oriental when they see me. It does make me laugh, all my family says the same thing. When will the swelling go down. Thanks great experience, it was a good job.

Eyelid Surgery

They listened to me and did the procedure I had requested. The anesthesiologist did a great job, although I did wake up enough to be a little uncomfortable once during the surgery. I can see much more! I think my night vision is better as well because there is more light entering my eyes. I think I also look more alert and rested.
