Dr. Wheeler is the best. I will miss him when he retires!!
Sep 26, 2016
I have dealt with Leigh Wheeler for many years, and was extremely sorry to learn that he is retiring. I have run into a problem though. He and Dr Keriann Gray have listed the internal medicine specialists to whom they apparently feel I should transfer once Dr Wheeler retires, but I have no way of choosing among 5 names. What is there to go on? How should I make a choice?
Sep 14, 2016
I liked Dr. Wheeler very much. And his preliminary diagnosis was right on target, after the abdominal CAT scan confirmed it. But I was not allowed to make the follow-up appt. with him, which I would have preferred.
Sep 12, 2016
Very poor likelihood of recommending because Dr. Wheeler is retiring in December and he will be very missed. He is caring, a top notch diagnostician and having to find a replacement is a huge task.

Dr Wheeler has always been good and always been informative and personable.

Aug 19, 2016
Will miss Dr Wheeler. Hard to believe that he is retiring. Who will take his place??
Aug 19, 2016
I have been going to Dr. Wheeler since he first came to town, in the early 80's, he has been a fabulous doctor, and I hate to see him retire. He will be a hard act to follow.
Aug 15, 2016
Dr. Wheeler has always shown a true interest in his patients and any issue that you are dealing with. He is particularly good at addressing the issue and explaining to the patient why it is important to follow a specific treatment. He is an excellent mentor for young doctors entering the practice. He will be greatly missed as my primary care physician as he moves into a much deserved retirement.
Aug 11, 2016
listened carefully to my concernsprovided exceptionally good clear easily understood responses
Aug 9, 2016
Dr. Wheeler has long been our family doctor. He's been a wonderful doctor, offering the highest quality diagnostic skills, medical treatment, and compassionate care. I feel like he's a member of our family. With Dr. Wheeler retiring at the end of the year, we are going to miss him greatly!
Aug 8, 2016
Dr. Wheeler has always been a wonderfully understanding & compassionate doctor. He will be greatly missed!

Jul 19, 2016
Dr Wheeler always listens to your concerns and advises appropriately. He is the best doctor I have ever had and I am sad that he will be retiring. I am happy for him but sad for me. I will miss his expertise, friendliness and efficient care.

Dr. Wheeler has been fantastic. Sorry he is retiring but he deserves it.
Jul 15, 2016
9) Will never have a care provider that I have been as confident in as Dr. Wheeler! 10) Left this appointment so devastated from his news of retiring. So happy for him and his family but there will be a definite hole there at Geisinger without him. Never had a Dr. so caring & concerned as he has been!
Jul 15, 2016
please allow Dr. Wheeler any means in which to allow him to continue his care for his patients.
Jul 15, 2016
I wish he was not retiring
Jul 11, 2016
Since he's retiring, it wouldn't make any sense to refer anybody to him.
Jul 8, 2016
Dr. Wheeler had ordered blood work for me, received the results & even sent a message to me - on SATURDAY! Excellent provider.

Dr. Wheeler is retiring, so I wonder if this review is entirely relevant, except to say that he's an excellent physician!
June 28, 2016
Dr. Wheeler is the best

Dr. Wheeler is the best.
May 4, 2016
Dr. Wheeler is compassionate and professional.
Apr 20, 2016
Dr. Wheeler knew what was going on with me from reading my file. He took the time to go over my previous labs and tests. He asked many questions about what was going on and explained his course of treatment with me in detail.
Apr 19, 2016
Dr. L. Wheeler has been my PCP since 1986 - I really like him and the assistance/advice he provides.
Apr 19, 2016
Dr Wheeler and others have been reluctant to use the word cancer, but he did not hide it, for which I am duly appreciative. I do not need to be protected from information.
Apr 16, 2016
I was well satisfied with the doc. He took great concern in helping me with my problem. Being that this was weekend clinic, I had never seen him before.
Apr 14, 2016
I am so "well," that I think I am not taken seriously enough when I have valid concerns.
Apr 13, 2016
Not taking new patients.
Apr 13, 2016
good
March 30, 2016
I like Dr. Wheeler very much. He lets me ask questions, answers them and takes time to explain meds, etc. to me. I've been with him for many years.
March 28, 2016
There should be an N/A for some of these questions.
March 22, 2016
I have been with my primary doctor for many years. I trust all the information he gives me. He has a place of trust not provided with other groups in our community. The group always has my health on the top of their list for keeping me up to date in all my tests for a person of my years.
March 21, 2016
Dr. Wheeler was very kind and also thorough during my visit with him. Thank you Dr. Wheeler for your care.
March 16, 2016
Dr. Wheeler is the best!
March 15, 2016
I might have missed a couple of details about the medication that Dr. Wheeler didn't cover, if I hadn't read all of the materials that came with the prescription. But I don't expect him to be a walking tome of everything about all medications, that's why the printed materials are given with the prescription.
March 10, 2016
The time seemed short - but Dr. Wheeler was efficient and covered everything. The answer for #10 has nothing to do with my recent appointment.
March 5, 2016
I've had a chest cold abd sinus issues for two months with two rounds of antibiotics and no relief. As soon as he heard that I had a cough(which was only for a week), he didn't address the other issues but thought it was allergies and asthma. He ordered a chest xray and blood and all came back normal and didn't prescribe any meds but said to take Delsym. That was my next step but thought maybe he'd try a zpac or something else because it felt like bronchitis which I've had before. I had to followup via email to see what he wanted me to do after all of the tests were done. I feel like he didn't listen to the whole issue and it still isn't resolved.
March 4, 2016
excellent, thorough doctor
March 3, 2016
Dr. Wheeler is very professional and always takes time to answer questions and creates an environment that for the moment the patient is the main focus.
March 2, 2016
It seems that since I've been on medicare/tricare, the semi annual physical exams are not as thorough and much shorter. Almost like Geisinger's policy is to shorten the time the physician can spend with their patients in order to maximize profit. I don't blame the physician but on Geisinger pollicy
March 2, 2016
Dr Wheeler has been a great doctor and have enjoyed seeing him for well over a decade.
Feb 29, 2016
