I have been a patient of Dr Wheelers for 28 years and would never considered making a change in health care providers. Dr Wheeler, his PA team, Missy and Greg, and all other associates in the office treat me as though I am a family member. The respect and care shown to me at each visit is a reflection of the integrity with which they conduct their practice. I highly recommend The Family Practice Center to anyone looking for quality medical care.
Great Doctor, Fantastic staff, all the diagnostic equipment under one roof. I drive 140 miles roundtrip to this facility, and there are many much closer! if your looking for a doctor in north half of Georgia, give these folks a try.
I went for a year end for physical examination and end up for more than 6 visits in a month with unwanted visits and bills. For any examination results which you have taken, they ask to fix appointment to discuss and bill for that. Even if they are abnormal results they ask to fix appointment to discuss . On the day they just mention that results are abnormal and come tomorrow with fasting. So that they can charge even for the next appointment. They just want to make more visits and charge the insurance. I had 10-15 visits in a 3 months period and never had a call back from the office about any results or medications at all. Only I used to call them for my results or medications.
Thank you very much for taking the time to review our Practice. Your input, and the feedback from all our patients is vitally important to us and we always strive to exceed patient expectations. We are sorry to hear of your frustrations with the office. We routinely call patients with "normal" test results within seven days. However, if results are "abnormal" we do schedule additional visits to determine the cause and take corrective action. We take pride in providing treatment as quickly as possible and getting our patients back to normal. Above all else, providing excellent patient care is our main goal. I would like to ask that you contact our Practice Administrator, Kim at 404-256-1727 so we can address your situation and make sure you have the information you need for your care. Dr James Wheeler
Dr. James Wheeler, Family Practice P C has been my primary care physician for over 10 years. I have recommended many colleagues and associates to FPPC. I have not heard any complaints & they still go to see Dr. Wheeler. Professional, resourceful, knowledgeable & follow through!
Amazing! I am a nurse and he is one of the smartest doctors I have ever met. His instincts are second to none. He is very concerned about his patients and their experience in his office. He works hard to see you quickly but thoroughly. I saw him taking amazing care of one of his employees at my last visit. He will actually call you back if you need to talk to him and he has called me with results before I had a chance to call the office. If you need a primary care doctor you won't find anyone better. He also has the best PAs and NPs. I feel comfortable seeing them anytime. His office staff is pleasant and keep you updated if he is running late. He has the best medical assistants too. So professional and friendly.
I saw Dr. Wheeler for my chronic pain condition and he was very sympathetic and understanding. He was more knowledge than any pain specialist I have seen in the past. I highly recommend this doctor for chronic pain.
It is comforting to know that professionalism and good customer service still exist. Dr. Wheeler's staff, is exceptional - one of the best that I have encountered. In him, you have a physician who listens attentively, thoroughly assesses your situation and makes an accurate diagnosis. I would encourage anyone who is seeking a physician with a good bedside manner to make an appointment. You will have no regrets.
I have been a patient at Family Practice Center for over 20 years. The doctors and midlevels are professional and provide excellent service. The clinicians time to help me with my concerns, and i always leave feeling like i have been taken good care of. They give thorough physicals, and I appreciate their advice of ways to keep me healthier longer. This particular family practice focuses on preventive medicine, so i feel like I'm not just getting my illnesses taken care of, but also being directed to a healthier lifestyle. I recommend this office to all of my friends, and many continue to come from out of state for routine health care!
Think about things like... What was most memorable? What did you like or dislike? What would you tell a friend? Would you choose this doctor again?
Dr. James Wheeler is a superb physician. His family practice is outstanding with same-day availability. I have been seeing Dr. Wheeler for many years and highly recommend him. Walt Sapronov
I have been a patient of Dr. Wheeler's for over 25 years. He has treated a number of conditions over the years and has always been accurate in his diagnoses and effective in his prescribed treatments. Dr. Wheeler has been performing annual physicals on me for over 15 years and his diligence helped uncover a rare congenital heart defect that I was able to then get corrected before suffering any permanent damage to my heart.
Been a patient of Dr. Wheeler for over 20 years. I am in good health at age 70 because of his recommendations,diagnosis and treatments. He saved my life twice once by recommending I see a cardiologist about a slight abnormality in my heart rythm which resulted in a stent (no heart attack) and twice by recommending I see a urogolist and have a biopsy performed on my prostate which resulted in a super early diagnosis of prostrate cancer.His staff and PA are excellent in their own right and the office is run professionally and efficiently and is always clean and orderly.
My family and I have been patients of Dr. Wheeler's for at least 20 years. All the professionals that are a part of this practice are excellent. My appointments are usually very quick. They don't waste my time sitting around waiting to be seen. Although my appointments are relatively quick, I feel like I get all the time and attention I need. I have never felt rushed. Anytime I have gone to Dr. Wheeler with an immediate issue, I feel like I received his total and complete attention and that my issue was the most important thing he had to deal with. I trust Dr. Wheeler implicitly and find it easy to talk to him and the other practitioners about any and all health issues. Dr. Wheeler's calm yet sympathetic demeanor is very reassuring. I highly recommend Dr. Wheeler and Family Practice Center.
I've been under Doc Wheelers Care for 10 Years. I was always very healthy until about 18 months ago. Thats when I found out what an excellent doctor he really was. For close to a year I suffered terribly with condition and Doc Wheeler was one of the only docs to diagnose me correctly. It should be noted that I was not an easy patient. The thing that a prospective patient needs to know is that he is one of the SMARTEST docters in Atlanta. This was the concensus from the army of other docs and specialist I saw. They all seem know him. He spent time at Harvard and hes also a Phsycatrist. I was in his office weekly for 6 months and the staff was very empathetic. I fould out the hard way that he can be trusted to diganose and recomend treatment correctly. Im truly grateful for his care. SM
Dr. Wheeler has been my physician for 32 years. I have stayed with him because he really does care. He also stays incredibly up to date on the latest technology and treatment alternatives. He has never missed a diagnosis but also never hesitates to send me to specialist for confirmation. Trust me, this as good as it gets for an all around caring and qualified physician.
Dr. Wheeler found my rectal cancer and saved my life. He got me to the specialist the same day, colonoscopy the next day, and oncologist the following day. Due to his connections he had my treatment underway immediately. He was copied on all the treatments along the way and kept up with everything. I trusted him with my life and it worked!
Our family has been patients with Dr Wheeler for 25 yrs. He has always been caring, accurate in diagnosis and treatment. We are in and out in an amazing amount of time.. I never feel hurried, the kids always were comfortable, and he attended to all our needs.
Overall great experience with doctors and staff! Highly recommend Missy!! (nurse practioner) She is wonderful! Cheryl is great office staff person too.
i have been attending Family Medical Center since 1995. Great doctors and staff especially Greg.
Dr Wheeler and staff has been great to be with for over 20 years.Usually brief waiting and once in the exam room Dr Wheeler sees me quickly
Great experience from start to finish. It was nice to feel like I was welcome. Dr. Wheeler took time to listen to everything I was concerned about and made me feel like he understood my issues.
Jim has been our family doctor for over 15 years and he has always been there for us. i have sent many of my friends to him and all are very pleased with Jim and his staff.
The best medicine for me was becoming a patient of Dr.Wheeler's fifteen years ago.Every office visit has been a pleasure.I would and do recommend Dr.Wheeler to everyone. Everyone I have referred has called to thank me and remains with Dr. Wheeler's office and will travel to see only him.In my opinion, Dr. Wheeler is the only choice due to his brilliance and quickness to solve all problems. Dr. Wheeler relates to his patients with kindness, concern and never falters.Fifteen years ago, I was always sick and feared sickness. Now I am extremely healthy and have no fear of getting sick.Thank you Dr. Wheeler and staff.
Dr. Wheeler has been a wonderful primary care doctor for my family for almost ten years.
great diagnostic skills, spot on in treating me for several conditions he loves what he does and it shows
I have been a patient for 28 years and Dr. Wheeler and his physician assistants: Greg, MIssy, Heather, and Allison are all wonderful. I feel very secure seeing them all. They are all very thorough. I moved away for a few years and I was never so glad to be back to Dr. Wheeler,s practice.
Dr. Wheeler and his staff were very professional. There was a comfort level and knowledge level that one does not experience in many physician offices.
I have been going to this office for more than 20 years. Dr. Wheller is a very knowledgeable physician and his staff has always been pleasant and efficient.
I went for an end of year physical and came away 3 office visits later totally frustrated. Medication was inappropriate for needs and tests and exams were overcharged for after being told they were included in coverage. Staff morale was low and followup about anything other than my bill was absent. Obviously, their main concern was to run tests and send invoices and whatever didn't stick send to the collection agency. Insurance companies should investigate for fraud.
I have been a patient of Dr Wheeler's for almost 33 years- we think I may be his longest running patient. He has also been the GP for my mother, father, sister, her family and my daughter. Not only do I highly recommend Dr Wheeler, I also recommend his very qualified staffed.
The service that I received at this practice was very exceptional. Dr. Wheeler and his staff made me very comfortable and at ease to discuss my problems and I received great care.
Saw him in early 90's as a patient in his weight loss program with HMR. Thought he was very rude and abrupt at times. Strange attitude considering the amount of money I paid him. After a good amount of time on the program, he closed up shop with no warning but a phone call, 5 minutes before I left the house to drive 40 miles to his office. He left a lot of people high and dry. Now I see he's back in business with HMR. Buyer Beware!
I have been visiting Dr. Wheeler for 2 years now. He is always patient and caring and he provides quality care. He has always been correct with diagnoses and prescribing medication, and he is the only Doctor that I will see while living in Atlanta.
Dr. Wheeler is an outstanding and thorough physician. He's been dead on with everything he's had to prescribe for me and the doctors that he's had to refer me to were wonderful. He has enormous turnover with his young unprofessional staff who really could care less if you're there or not. I keep going back just for Dr. Wheeler.
I always get to see Dr. Wheeler if I ask for him (not just see him, but have him as the Dr. for my appt). Plus, if you ask for samples instead of a prescription they will give you some that they get free from the pharma companies. Other than a slight wait, no problems for me at this office. Good staff too.
I have gone to Dr Wheeler for over a year. He is a very good doctor. Most reviews are correct about his PA's doing diagnosis, but Dr. Wheeler comes in to see me on every appointment to see if I have any questions. I try to schedule appointments when he is in the office. If you do not, you will get a PA. That being said, the staff is rude on every occasion that I have been there. They seem to be in their own little world and that we (paitents) are a nuisance. They should at least try to be friendlier.
There is often a wait but the billing is great, never had a problem with it going through insurance. I usually see Holly, not the MD, but never have any issues with the staff.
The staff is always pleasant, the office is always clean and I've never had more than a 15 minute wait. I have been very satisfied.
I rarely actually see the doctor, but I have a good rapport with Greg the PA, so I don't mind that much. Overall, I'm satisfied.
You never actually get to see the Dr. He just has his assistants diagnose you and only gets involved if they don't know what they are up against. I know I made an appointment with him, but I never saw him in my last (and only) 3 appointments. That isn't even starting on the wait (which I know is par for most Dr. offices).
Dr. Wheeler's office is generally pretty good about getting you a last minute appointment. However, there is uaually a wait to get called and then another wait to see the Dr or PA. I do not have any complaints about the staff as they are generally pleasant and helpful.
