My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My goal is to optimize your health which is done by creating and maintaining a balance between your mind, body and soul, all of which are intimately integrated and interdependent by:
  • 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.

from Curtis June 22, 2017 for F. P. Wedel, DO

I have had many doctors many specialties, settings, and several U.S. states. I have also worked extensively with doctors through my professional work. Out of at least 100 doctors, Dr. Wedel is easily one of the top 5. He is consistently extremely professional, warm, friendly, intelligent, and experienced. He is never condescending. He is very efficient and will do anything possible to help me… See more

from Dan in AZ March 8, 2016 for F. P. Wedel, DO

Dr. Wedel has guided me toward a proactive and beneficial attitude about healthcare. From diagnosing and prescribing appropriate medication for underlying medical conditions to walking side by side with me through a weight loss program, I have found him to be a genuinely supportive friend and ally. I'm glad he has become part of this great program.

It has cost me more money but I would do it to stay with Dr. Wedel

from Marjorie in AZ February 9, 2015 for F. P. Wedel, DO

Dr. Wedel's treatment and advice have allowed me to discontinue use of some prescriptions and use medicines more effectively. He, with other protocol providers, has enabled me to recover from a ruptured disk without surgery or injections. His bedside manner is very patient-centered, his osteopathic manipulations very helpful, and his staff friendly and knowledgeable.

from Jodie in AZ February 6, 2014 for F. P. Wedel, DO

I've been seeing Dr. Wedel for almost 23 years. He and his awesome staff have been right there helping me take care of my health through minor issues and from a pregnancy through a total hysterectomy and beyond. Even before his practice was with MDVIP, I can't recall waiting more than 5 minutes in the lobby or treatment/exam room. There are just no words adequate to describe the… See more
