Specialties

Dr. Mark D Wheeler has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Endocrinology

    Endocrinologists treat disorders related to our glands and the hormones they produce. Because hormones play a key role in the growth and development of children, these conditions often pose different threats to children than they do adults. That’s where a pediatric endocrinologist comes in.
    They can diagnose and treat hormonal disorders such as abnormal thyroid function, growth complications and early or delayed puberty. Ambiguous genitals as well as ovarian and testicular dysfunction are also part of their expertise. Childhood obesity, diabetes and problems with low blood sugar also tie back to hormone function and may require consulting with a pediatric endocrinologist.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Great Doctor

I really like Dr. Wheeler. He is a very caring man who listens to my concerns and offers good suggestions. He is a little on the quiet side which I appreciate. My daughter has Type 1 and he has cared for her for 5 years now. The wait can be a little long and sometimes you don't get to see the Dr. himself for very long, but I am not rating the office..just the Dr. And he is wonderful.

Stay away from this Dr. Office unless you have 2 hours to wait for your appointment, and dont care if the 4 minutes they finally give you is not worth anything but them listening to your childs lungs and tapping their knees. Its so sad to say that this is what a good diabectic TEAM has turned into...We have been with Dr. Wheelers office for a total of 9 yrs...they are a JOKE!!! I wish contacting the board would amount to anything..unstead I will vote with my feet and find a better if not the best Dr for my child.
