The only complaint is how long it takes to get in to see Dr. Wheeler. My first visit took 5 months but she is well worth the wait.

Rude and Incompetent

To the point; the male receptionist is extremely rude, arrogant and I strongly suspect revengeful. The remaining staff, which I assume reports to Dr. Wheeler, is beyond incompetent. I made three attempts to get a prior authorization for a medication that addresses one of the consequences of a pituitary tumor. It is impossible to speak to a human. If you do they transfer you to another recording, identical to the last. In my frustration I decided to drive to Atlanta (41 miles one way), knowing that this problem would be simple to resolve. NOT! I was told by the man I described initially that everyone was too busy and the staff initially handles all of the doctor's patient "issues". If I choose to I could leave the doctor a note. I did that and included the notification from the insurance company explaining the denial. So, eighty some miles, 6 bucks to park and three hours out of my life, which is valuable for those of us considered Seniors". For what? Try NO contact for three days. Maybe my note got lost?

Dr. Kate is a Blessing, our Medical Angel...she came so highly recommended though it took three months because she was booked! She was truly worth the wait. LaShunda (thank you) at the front told me to keep checking back and as soon as a cancelation appeared ...we became her patient. Dr. Kate is sincere, has great follow through and so does her strong team working with her, especially Jerome! Her right hand when she is not available. If you need to speak to her directly, she will make the time to do so as busy and in demand as she is. ..What a person first, what a doctor. A person of ethics, respect, one who cares and a healer. Dr.Wheeler answers your questions and dont make you feel rushed and unimportant. Doc is so detailed and knoweledgeable in her calling. Most of all she LOVES people and enjoys what she does. The entire staff is very professional and courteous . For us- it can determine if you have a lasting relationship at an office. Laureate has strong policies and believes in customer service in the office or on the phone. All messages are returned in a timely manner, scripts are processed if needed and questions are answered. We are so blessed to be her patient and for providing mom with a better quality of life and finally a better understanding as a Diabetic. Thank you and see you soon.
