Wheeler's is a reputable firm specializing in catheter and incontinence supplies. Though they are a complete medical supply company, they have been noted to subspecialize in neurogenic bladder disorders, specifically those involving spinal cord injury. We plan on including them as one of the supply services that we utilize here in the Department of Urology at Mayo Clinic in Florida.Steven P, M.D.
Wheeler's has helped me maintain my health and independence through their urological supplies. Not only by helping me get the type of one-time use catheters I need, but also bringing me extra supplies in the event I run out before my shipment arrives. They are always there for you when you need them!Joe S
Wheeler’s Medical has provided a peace of mind when it comes to reliability. I know I will get my supplies on time and exactly what I ordered.

Their service and patient interactions have added considerable to patient's understanding of their chronic medical conditions involving the bladder. The company has provided patients excellent service with same day delivery. Their knowledge of the catheters has aided patients in selecting catheters and has added to their overall education. Without their service, the alternative vendors are not interactive or helpful.Douglas S, M.D., FACS
