Specialties

Dr. Patricia W Wheeler has the following 1 specialty

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

I have seen the comment about Dr. Wheeler's "turning on you". This had happened to me, too, a couple of times in the past, but it hasn't happened for about two years now. I think she has become aware of this quirk. Recently, I resisted one of her recommendations (e.g., I decided to go off Fosamax, after learning about its complications). She presented arguments for continuing, but accepted my decision not to, without any noticeable pique.Her care and attention are exceptional. She studies your medical record carefully before she comes into the room, she reviews it with you, and is zealous in making sure you are aware of all recommended or upcoming preventative measures. Because of this, if you decide all of a sudden that you want her to look at matters that were not scheduled for, she will justifiably become irritated, since the time allotted for your visit will not be sufficient. You do have to make sure you do not "add" other maladies to the ones for which she is seeing you for that appointment.I have been VERY satisfied with her care ever since I have been seeing her. {I have been her patient ever since she started her practice with Dr. Murphy. I had been her patient before that she was with UofL's Family Practice.}

She may not be as much of a "friend" as you think.

Dr. Wheeler was my family doc for many years. For a while I shared the positive views of those who have already posted comments. I word of caution, though. She can turn on you and go from friend to adversary in a minute. She misdiagnosed my problem, twice, and two years later I am still living with the consequences of her poor advice and judgment. I switched doctors two years ago, and am finally getting the proper diagnosis and treatment. I stood up for myself with her, but I worry about those who don't, and who accept everything she says as correct, when that may not always be the case. Do your homework on the specialists she refers you to, and listen to your instincts.

Dr. Wheeler is the epitomy of what a great physician should look to be. Her compassion, intellect, and her guidance is undeniable. I am fortunate to be her patient, and I will continue to be for as long as her doors are open. She is wonderful, and I would recommend her without hesitation to anyone seeking an excellent physician.
