The son of an Airforce Colonel, Dr. Wheeler, decided to be a plastic surgeon in high school. He saw plastic surgery as a perfect combination of performing his art while still being able to provide for his family in the future. He attended college at the University of Florida, where he majored in psychology. He put himself through college and medical school through a variety of scholarships, jobs, and loans.

While in college, he found the love of his life, Karen. He got married and attended medical school at the University of South Florida, where he was elected into the prestigious honorary society Alpha Omega Alpha for his academic achievement of a 4.0-grade point average. After medical school, he entered the University of Washington Plastic Surgery Residency program, one of the top training programs in the country. While in training, he published several papers in the field of plastic surgery and became an invited lecturer to other plastic surgery programs.

He has two children, Max and Anna. During his time in Seattle, Dr. Wheeler discovered a love of the Northwest. He and his family moved to Spokane, where he joined forces with the other partners to develop Plastic Surgery Northwest, the most comprehensive Plastic Surgery office in the region. Since his career in Spokane, he has become known for his innovative approach to facial aging, including the combination of facial fillers, wrinkle relaxers, and surgery to create a naturally refreshed appearance.

He spends his personal time with his family, playing volleyball and traveling, and enjoys mixology, food, and professional sports. He cares deeply for his patients and routinely makes personal phone calls to check on their well-being. Patients are constantly amazed by their results with Dr. Wheeler.

Breast Augmentation: Selecting an Implant

Facial Aging Assessment with Dr. Wheeler


“I had a breast augmentation done by Dr. Wheeler & it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. From the first consult to the post-surgery follow up visits, Dr. Wheeler & his team are amazing. I am so happy with how natural looking the augmentation results are! I would highly recommend Dr. Wheeler.”

“My surgeons (Wheeler and Williams) at Plastic Surgery Northwest were phenomenal! They took every opportunity to make sure I was informed, safe and cared for. The results have been amazing and my entire experience was top notch! I’ve been healing well and have minimal pain, especially considering how extensive the surgery was. It’s still early in the healing process, but I would 1000% recommend and I’d do it all over again.”

“Dr. Wheeler and all of his staff were fantastic from start to finish. He gave me exactly the look I was going for and spent quite a bit of time with me at consultation answering my many questions. His staff is excellent and the office is clearly a well-oiled machine in terms of communication and function. I would recommend him to anyone and will be returning to him if I ever want any other type of procedure.”
