My appointment was 1:30pm. Dr Wilson sat in the office joint to my room by a wall having a full conversation with a nurse about a few of his patients For 30 mins making me sit and wait for him. Needless to say i walked out withoutSeeing him after 45 mins of waiting 0 out of 10 stars.

Review for Dr. Wilson

On time as scheduled. My first visit, I was very nervous, but he was highly recommended by my friend who works in the nursing field. He made me feel at ease. The doctor took the time to explain the problem. He even had illustrations! The office was clean and the front desk lady was very friendly.
