    I have never been treated with such respect by a doctor in my life
    I have never been treated with such respect by a doctor in my life. He truly listened to what I had to say and made me feel like that I was contributing to the diagnosis of my condition. Dr. Wheeless is a God-send and I will never forget what he has done for me today. I wish I knew some way to show him appreciation for truly helping me to stop my suffering and allow me to return to living a normal, productive life. Thank you Dr. Wheeless.
