Dr. Wilson is excellent and very thorough in her exams. I enjoyed my appointment and definitely felt that Dr. Wilson listened to me and understood my complex medical history (POTS, GI issues, etc). I came in for what I thought was simple hand cramping/joint inflammation due to overuse of my hands that didn't improve with steroids, and she was able to determine through an exam and x-rays that there was nothing wrong with my bones, joints, or muscles in a way that indicated simple hand problems or injury. Unfortunately for me, this means I must now see a neurologist to look into the issue further, but Dr. Wilson gave me a referral to a trusted neurology specialist. If I ever have a hand injury, I will go back to her for treatment. I recommend her 100%.

Dr. Wilson was simply excellent—you will not find a better hand specialist in the city. In one visit she was able to swiftly address and fix an issue I was having with my finger, something two other specialists had failed to fix in over 9 months.

Dr. Wilson treated me twice for tenosynovitis in the wrist. She was warm, informative and patient during the appointments. She is obviously very skilled at what she does, administered the treatment smoothly and I had full recovery immediately.

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!
