    Philosophy of Care

    For radiation patients, Dr. Wheeler’s goal is to deliver an effective dose of radiation to eradicate the tumor while protecting the normal organs as much as possible. For patients who cannot be cured but are suffering from the effects of cancer, his goal is to relieve the symptoms caused by the cancer with minimal side effects from the radiation treatments. He notes that many cancers can be treated with fewer treatment sessions today than they could even a few years ago, with less patient inconvenience and fewer negative side effects
