Rhodes in a wheelchair?

Planning a trip to Turkey in October 2013 and would like to travel to Rhodes for 3-4 days at some point during the trip. I've always wanted to go to Greece, but the idea of it is a bit daunting due to the lack of information on accessibility.

I have a small, manual wheelchair and have traveled to Rome, many hill towns in Tuscany, Paris, throughout England, Belgium and along parts of the Italian & French riviera. I don't know how Rhodes compares to any of these places in terms of terrain and accessibility, but it gives you an idea of what I have conquered in the past. Obviously cobblestones are not a problem, but stairs are not really doable (I can manage one step in my chair, but not multiple) and gravel is impossible. I feel like this would be a good sampling, rather than planning a trip completely revolved around Greece only to find myself trapped in the hotel room for 2+ weeks. It can be hard to be objective on this, since most people aren't walking around analyzing in their minds what would be doable for a wheelchair, but based on your experience, my previous travels and your instincts what are your guys' thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks!
