Dr. Wheeler is compassionate and professional.
Apr 20
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.

Dr. L. Wheeler has been my PCP since 1986 - I really like him and the assistance/advice he provides.
Apr 19
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
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
I am so "well," that I think I am not taken seriously enough when I have valid concerns.

good
March 30
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
There should be an N/A for some of these questions.
March 22
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
Dr. Wheeler was very kind and also thorough during my visit with him. Thank you Dr. Wheeler for your care.
March 16
Dr. Wheeler is the best!
March 15
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
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
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
excellent, thorough doctor
March 3
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
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

Dr Wheeler has been a great doctor and have enjoyed seeing him for well over a decade.

Feb 19
I have extreme confidence in Dr. Leigh Wheeler
Feb 18
Dr. Wheeler is the best always very attentive and professional.
Feb 12
Dr. Wheeler explained condition and results of testing from previous ER visit. Also provided copies of all testing results. He and scheduling personnel went further to try to expedite a follow-up consultation with a surgeon due to my personal situation. My first grandchild is due March 23rd in Albany, NY and I would love to be able to be there without worry about a 2nd gallbladder attack or recovering from surgery. Since the consult isn't for another 3 weeks this is looking to be touch and go.

Dr Wheeler is the best
Dec 28, 2015
I questioned appropriateness of antibiotic but he prescribed it anyway. It seemed quite likely I had a virus so use of antibiotic was somewhat irresponsible.
Dec 23, 2015
I have never heard a negative about Dr. Wheeler. He makes everyone feel special with his expertise.
Dec 16, 2015

Dec 9, 2015
I will make sure that I will NEVER make another appointment with him again if my regular dr is not available. when I leave the dr office in tears because he didn't listen to me as a patient I feel there is a problem. I feel he needs practice on this. he wants to be the one talking all the time not listening to the patient. will NOT go back to him!!!!!
Dec 7, 2015
Dr. Wheeler is extremely patient and explains things in a way that is easy to understand. He doesn't mind repeating information to help ensure that I've fully understood what we are discussing.
Nov 27, 2015
Although Dr. Wheeler is not my primary care physician and he was covering for same, he came into the interview obviously well-prepared and having taken the time to review my history very carefully. He was thorough, highly professional in his opinion and recommendations. I was impressed and grateful for his concern and care.
Nov 23, 2015
Dr. Wheeler is always so helpful and caring. We are lucky to have him as our doctor.
Nov 19, 2015
Dr. Wheeler always spends "quality" time during my visits with explanations and willing to answer any questions that I may have.

My husband and I both see Dr. Wheeler and we have been and continue to be impressed with his care and follow-up. He's the best!
Sep 22, 2015
I do not recall any time since I've been a patient of Dr. Wheeler that I haven't been more than delighted to be in his care. I have always recommended him but, alas, I don't believe he is taking new patients.
Sep 22, 2015

When I count my blessings, Dr Wheeler is on that list. He is caring, capable, a clear communicator, a good listener. We are so fortunate to have Dr Wheeler as our family doctor!
Aug 25, 2015
Dr. Wheeler knew that I was anticipating knee replacement surgery. He had copied some tests I recently had done anticipating that I would probably not have to repeat them at the hospital. And he was correct. Thus he saved me time and worry. He also encouraged me to do the surgery since I control my diabetes by diet exercise, mostly walking and cannot do that with my current knee problem. He also encouraged me to get a flu shot as soon as possible which I have done. Overall I have much confidence in Dr. Wheeler's expertise and also in his concern to do what is best for his patients. He also listens and seems to hear you when you ask questions or comment on stuff. He is a great Doctor in my opinion and I am glad he is my physician.
Aug 25, 2015
I did not want to be referred to an Allergist/Immunologist just to determine whether I will have an allergic reaction to a flu shot. I think that is excessive, but I understand primary physician's reasoning.
Aug 19, 2015
I believe Dr.Wheeler is an amazing physician. He has always been very helpful, friendly, and comforting. He has always made my daughter and I feel at ease. I recommend him to everyone I know that is looking for a new Dr.
Aug 14, 2015
Wonderful doctor with great personal skills - relates very well with his patients!
Aug 13, 2015
This was a routine check-up. Dr. Wheeler did ask me about a previous problem. Good follow-up on his part.
Aug 12, 2015
I really like Dr. Wheeler and think he is very thorough. I also did not feel rushed like I have with other doctors I have seen.
Aug 10, 2015
thought Dr. Wheeler was very thorough & sent me to an orthopaedic doctor to help remedy my problem.
Aug 7, 2015
There should be a "not applicable" category. For removal of my stitches, there was no relevance to "effort to include me in decisions about my treatment" (Item 4, above).
