I was referred to Dr. Wilhelmsen by my family Doctor. He explained all the XRAYS to me, and why I needed to go see a back doctor. He was very straightforward which I love and found humor in, I'm sure after meeting and talking with him that if he could have helped me with my problem I would have trusted him.

Our son hurt his wrist and Dr W saw him that afternoon. Our son has high function autism and ADHD, and will talk any head off, so I thought this could be interesting (after reading the other reviews). X-ray was quick but the wait for the Dr was long, so we stayed busy playing and ordering dinner. Dr W spent most of the time talking to and listening to our son. He also explained everything we needed to know and do for his wrist, and answered all of our questions. He was pleasant & funny. Gr8 staf
