Frequently Asked Questions:

What Types of Medical Problems do You Handle?

I treat gynecologic conditions ranging from the teen years through menopause.  This includes contraception, pre-conceptual counseling. PMS care, infertility treatment, and peri-menopause and menopause.  I combine state-of-the-art diagnostics and therapeutics with an old fashioned compassionate delivery of care.

Why is it recommended that a women visit a Gynecologist every 6-12 months on a regular basis?

Some test are recommended annually for most women, such as pap smears.  Women over 40 years of age are typically recommended mammograms annually.  Many issues come up in a woman's life over 12 or even 6 months that make their discussion with Dr. Wheeler worthwhile. He explains,  " I've never just sat there and stared at a patient with nothing to talk about, there's always a health issue to discuss.

How is Dr. Wheeler Different from Other Gynecologists?

Dr. Wheeler's training is exceptionally broad and intended to help his patients with a wide range of health issues.  He strives to be on time, estimating the average total wait before being seen at less than 15 minutes.  He actively listens to patients better than some, because many new patients express their appreciation.  His staff is particularly well trained and courteous, with no use of temporaries.  And then there's free parking !

What are some of the more common causes of pelvic pain, how are they diagnosed, and how are they treated?

Pelvic pain can vary in how it is felt and when it occurs. It can come and go for brief times or it can be constant. Sometimes pelvic pain can recur on a regular cycle or schedule. It also may occur only at certain times-before or after eating, while you urinate, during sex, or during a menstrual period.  See more on this subject on Pelvic Pain
