Review of Dr. Wilton

- in Shoreview, MN |

I was referred to Dr. Wilton for a parathyroidectomy. I am so impressed by his conscientious approach, his thorough explanation of the procedure anticipated, his knowledge of hyperparathyroidism and his surgical skills. Although my procedure was complicated, I experienced very little pain afterwards and my recovery has been remarkable. After the surgery, he explained every aspect of the surgery and how it was dealt with. I wish I had known ahead of time how good he was going to be.

Review of Dr. Ogren

- in farmington mn |

Dr Ogren performed a hernia surgery on my husband- when the surgery was over she came out and explained everything to me. While in recovery the nurses were exceptional. I highly recommend Dr Ogren

Review of Dr. Ogren

- in Stillwater, MN |

Dr. Ogren is a straight shooter and to the point. She spent ample time with me in the clinic and a few minutes with me in the hospital post surgery. She followed up with me by phone on two different occasions which I didn't expect. Once pre-surgery (mastectomy) to make doubly sure I was comfortable with my decision and to again discuss options. Once three weeks post surgery to check on my well being. Very professional at all times but I truly felt that she cared about my outcome.

Review of Dr. Wilton


Dr. Wilton performed my thyroidectomy. He is the most compassionate doctor I’ve ever met. He went above and beyond with the time he spent explaining my procedure and all of my follow-up issues post surgery. I wish all doctors cared for their patients in this regard.

Review of Dr. Ogren

-Minneapolis, MN |

A very relational doctor that is thorough and straightforward with my cancer diagnosis. She performed two excision surgeries on me and I felt fully confident that I was in good hands...which made me feel relaxed because I trusted her. I felt her care and concern for me as a person (and stranger to her, really) was genuine.

Review of Dr. McGreevy

- in St Paul, MN |

I had my gallbladder removed recently and when I began to experience immense pain on a Sat (9 on pain scale) I called and left a message for the on-call surgeon who was Dr McGreevy. After 3 hrs of not hearing back I called again. The answering service called him and kept him on the line in order for him to actually speak to me. He could care less about me and said he had no access to prescriptions. Maybe others have had better care from him when it was on his terms - despicable conduct!

Review of Dr. McGreevy

- in St Paul, MN |

Dr. McGreevy is highly communicative. My mother in law had surgery today and he spent plenty of time with our family explaining the procedure. She is 96 years old and liked him as well when she met him. He seems highly competent and professional. We were extremely pleased.

Review of Dr. Ogren

-St Paul, MN |

When I was in the hospital and did not feel like I was ready to go home, felt she was more worried about the statistic for robotic surgery then me as a patient. I was not her patient, she must have been the Dr. on for the weekend. She was very abrupt. I would not recommend her to my family or friends. Her bedside manner was awful......................

Review of Dr. Wahlstrom

-St Paul, MN |

I really felt like Dr. Wahlstrom listened to me and spent the time with me to make sure I understood his recommendations for surgery. His team was also available for questions at any time and returned my phone calls in a very timely fashion. He gave a great recommendation on which direction to go with surgery based on my children's age and recovery time. I felt like I was in good hands and would recommend him to anyone looking for a professional and knowledgeable general surgeon.
