Ratings for Dr. Mark Wheatcroft
His skilled hands saved my husband. On top of repairing an aneurysm, he replaced to calcified arteries. Five days later, he performed another unexpected surgery to repair an hernia caused by too much coughing. Through this experience, he remained a constant professional, patient and teacher. We will be forever grateful for having met him. He saw the urgency of the situation and put the surgery on priority. What a compassionate doctor.
Dr. Wheatcroft was the doctor for my father when he was suffering from a foot wound that would not heal due to diabetes and poor bloodflow. After a year or various medications, it had reached the point where Dr. Wheatcroft recommended amputation of the foot. A terrifying diagnosis for my father and of course for our family. He discussed the options, why he was recommending it and made us feel like he was taking all factors into consideration. We decided upon a below knee amputation and the surgery was done by Dr. Wheatcroft (or possibly his junior under his guidance) and it went well. My father made it through and went through rehab and has a prosthetic now. Many other doctors and physiotherapists have commented on how well formed the residuum (stump) is and that is a reflection of the work done by Dr. Wheatcroft and his team. I would never wish that sort of procedure on anyone, but having a talented, caring surgeon makes a tremendous difference.
It's rare to meet a specialist who takes the time to exhaustively understand the medical matter at hand--Dr. Wheatcroft is one of those physicians. He takes the time to explain things in 'patient language' and is open to respond to any/all questions.
