Somehow Dr. Wedel and his staff find a way to fit me in whenever I'm in need. I'm so appreciative of their kindness and professionalism. He's the perfect blend of intelligence and common sense. He's the best Dr. I've ever had!
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.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Wedel
Dr Wedel has been my doctor for the past 17+ years. He has always taken excellent care of me. I love his sense of humor as well as his doctoring skills. He has a super office staff that makes you feel like family. Keep it up, Dr Wedel.

Dr. Wedel has taken good care of me over a number of years. As a result of his affiliation w/MDVIP he has been able to provide even more time with me discussing health matters and the increased diagnostic testing he has done has facilitated his assessment of me and furthered my awareness of specific health issues that apply to me. I couldnt ask for a better doctor. Additionally, his staff… See more
I've been very impressed with Dr. Wedel and the MDVIP service. He's always accessible when needed.

I started MDVIP to keep Dr.Wedel, it has worked well. Dr Wedel has always been the perfect doctor, allowing enough time to take care of whatever my needs are. He watches my medical records closely and makes sure that I get any follow up treatments that I need. I wish he was not with MDVIP as he is the only reason that I am in the program and an extra $150 per month is a lot to pay for a… See more
