My husband’s heart went out of rhythm on a Saturday and he was unable to convert to a normal rhythm on his own. We texted Dr Wedel on Sunday morning and asked him what we should do.

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
- Listening actively to understand your complaint
- Diagnosing accurately that complaint cause
- Prescribing effectively the easiest solution – medication or surgical intervention when necessary
- Balancing structural asymmetries using Osteopathic manipulative techniques, or;
- Providing on-site counseling or referral for such
I will partner with you on a personal level to individualize and achieve the health and wellness you and I both desire for you. We will walk together on the path towards wellness using a preventive approach rather than a reactive one to gain years of increased well-being. Your journey will include individualized attention and a relaxed office experience using state-of–the art diagnostic testing and methods.
