    Dr. Wilson gave us all the time we needed and lots of discussion regarding my husband's aortic valve replacement. He gave us the options and information we needed and is the world's BESTcheerleader. Encouragement and a look to the future is nearly as important as surgical skills. He and his staff are wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
