Dr Wilson saved my mother’s life! She had stage 4 non-Hodgkins lymphoma, diagnosed in 2006 - and thanks to his brilliant and extremely compassionate care - she’s been in remission since 2008 and is still in his very capable hands. (And here was a very difficult case - he’s a brilliant diagnostician, up to date on all of the latest research, developments, and treatments - and I’d recommend him highly to anyone! Our whole family is so thankful for all the years he’s given us with our mom!

I have a parent in his care for cancer and when I called to ask some questions, he was EXTREMELY rude and condescending. Did not care to take the time to hear what I was asking and only gave vague responses. I was insulted and upset he is a Dr that SHOULD have compassion and clearly DOES NOT!! I ended the call feeling like my loved one is just a statistic to him. Get a second opinion before putting a loved one is his care.

Dr. Wilson saved my father's life. He not only brought him back from near death (very advanced Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma), but he did it in a way that no other doctor could ever compare. He is so compassionate, intelligent, and thorough-three VERY rare qualities in doctors these days. He truly makes you feel like you are his only patient, and he welcomes questions with open arms. My family can never repay him for what he has done for us. We recommend him without hesitation.
