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...more

Dear Beth, I'm very sorry you went through such a bad experience as a patient but we don't find you or someone fitting your report in our system. We were eager to fix what went wrong with your appt but when we looked for you our system we didn't find you as one of our patients. We are a new practice that takes new patients for hand surgery complaints every clinic day. We don't use folders, we don't have nurses and we do take new patients. We wonder if you might have made a mistake.
