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
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.

My entire experience with Dr Wedel is nothing but 100 positive. He is accessible, he listens and we are able to maintain a great patient/provider relationship.
Kudos also to a great office staff and Nurse Susan, a great patient advocate.
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.
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.

His ability to care puts him at the top of the line as far as I am concerned. On a rating of `1 to 10 (… See more
