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.

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.

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.

Aug 26, 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).
Aug 3, 2015
*Dr. Wheeler is very compassionate and caring.
Jul 28, 2015

Dr. Wheeler has been my primary care doctor for the past 35 years or so. He has always treated me well and never missed a diagnosis. His kindness and his ability to make me feel good about myself and always there to give me guidance. I would follow him to the moon if he asked me{illegible or inappropriate content}.that is how much I trust him. Thank you for taking such good care of me and my family.

I continue to be most impressed with Dr. Wheeler, his nurse, and staff at Geisinger.
May 15, 2015
Would like lab prior to appt.!
May 8, 2015
I've been Dr. Wheeler's patient for 29 years. There was never a time that I questioned anything he said or suggested. We have developed a very good doctor/patient relationship. After I was diagnosed with MS I began to see Dr. Wheeler on a more regular schedule. Probably the first 10 years I saw him only when I got sick. I always liked him, but now that my health has been declining I see a different caring side of him. I feel very secure with Dr. Wheeler, and worry about when the time comes for him to retire.
May 6, 2015
for number four - there wasn't really anything to decide
May 4, 2015
Dr. Wheeler has been my family's PCP for 28 years. If was not this good - I would have changed.

never had a bad experience
March 20, 2015
I've been going to Geisinger since we move back to PA, about 15 years. Dr. Wheeler has been my PCP the entire time. I've never had a doctor I've felt as comfortable with.
March 20, 2015
#5 was not answered - no medications. Dr. Wheeler was very thorough and no matter how busy his schedule might be, when in the room, he is very focused on what your needs are and how he can make that better.
March 13, 2015
My care provider is a general practitioner. When issues arise that require a specialist, he willingly refers me to a specialist and is more than willing to confer with specialist regarding my health issues. I appreciate this manner in which my doctor conducts his practice.
March 11, 2015
Dr. Wheeler really focuses on my problems and always sends me to the appropriate follow up care.
Feb 26, 2015
We always get time to explain what my problem is not in a big rush.
Feb 19, 2015
Dr. Wheeler is a 'gem'.
Feb 15, 2015
Never gave me an official diagnosis! Woke up with a 100 degree fever, supposedly had none while there. Went home and had a 102 degree fever for 3 days after. He did prescribe me medicine which did work.
Feb 13, 2015
Dr. Wheeler is a great asset to Geisinger, didn't rush me through, and very concern about me. Very good doctor, I held him in high regards.
Feb 11, 2015
I was quite impressed that he had taken the time to become familiar with my history and knew that 40 years ago I was treated for the same concern.
Feb 10, 2015
Dr. Wheeler truly cares about his patients. Very professional and excellent doctor.
Feb 10, 2015
