Dr. Wilson is terrific. I went to her for a second opinion about hand surgery and she was willing to squeeze me into her schedule to talk for a while about her opinion and my options. She clearly cares about her patients and goes above and beyond to ensure the best care is given - even though I was already scheduled for surgery with someone else. What really blew me away was that she called me the next day to follow up and conferenced in my mom so that we could all discuss my case.

I was referred to Dr. Wilson in October for a wound in the palm of my hand; she was wonderful. I had already seen my primary care physician and had a visit to the emergency room, neither of which was very helpful. Dr. Wilson diagnosed the problem, gave me a prescription and the wound healed in 3 weeks. She was concerned about me as a person, not just my hand.

Phenomenal, very caring and knowledgeable doctor. While most doctors immediately want to either perform surgery or a barrage of unnecessary tests, Dr. Wilson attempted alternate treatments, and used surgery a last result. In essence, you a patient, not a number or a pay check. I also highly recommend her, her staff, and their flexibility. They worked around my personal schedule, even opening their office specifically for me, on off-days.

called to make appointment, when I arrived to an empty office I waited about 25 min to be called by a staff member to window. After waiting for over an hour I was taken in to exam room for nurse to take vitals there after Doctor came in, did not even introduce herself, looked at my folder and told me she didn't want to see me because I was a new patient. The Doctor was very rude with attitude, very unethical and uncaring!
