I recently had an appointment with Dr Erica Wheat at Amarillo Surgical Group. As usual, it was an enjoyable experience. Everyone, from the front office staff, to the nurses and Dr. Wheat were great. Friendly and professional. Dr. Wheat gave a thorough exam. Very easy to talk to, and she answers your questions very well. Both thumbs up for the entire group.

This was my first visit with Dr. Erica G. Wheat. It was in and out, which is how I like it. She was willing to talk about any questions/concerns I had although I had none really. She respected my personal feelings/decisions. Looking forward to upcoming appointments.

She explained what a radial scar was and why it should be removed and even worked with me on scheduling the surgery. On the day of surgery she explained everything to me and my daughter that had come with me to drive me home.
