    in Denver, CO |
    This was, by far, the best experience I've had with a new physician. I went to Dr. Wilson for a second opinion, and I'm glad that I did! Firstly, the office was able to schedule me the same day with was very convenient, as I needed to be seen before the end of the week because I am moving. Secondly, the staff was amazing. VERY friendly, welcoming, and accommodating. Dr. Wilson was knowledgeable and honest. He suggested at treatment I didn't get at with the first doctor I saw for this probl

    Transferred care to dr Wilson and glad I did! Much better than my previous dr!!
    in Denver, CO |
    I would definitely not recommend Dr. Wilson. He was very rude and assumed that I have the knowledge of a doctor. When I asked him a question, he had no patience and seemed annoyed that I did not understand him. He was in a rush and had a very unpleasant bedside manner.

    Very sure of himself, which, I suppose is a good thing for a doctor/surgeon.
    in Denver, CO |
    He is experienced & well qualified. He shows great attention to detail & the needs of his clients. He is very focused on providing the best care possible. Needless to say I found this reassuring! I believe it means a great deal that his staff speak so highly of working with him. l went to see Dr. Wilson in September 2015 with three fingers on my right and left hands going numb. After carpal and radial tunnel release surgeries I have my fingers, wrists, and elbows back.
    in Broomfield, CO |
    Dr. Wilson was very direct, knowledgable about the proper line of care needed. His front office assistants keep things interesting too.
    in Arvada, CO |
    Appointments always on time. Dr. Wilson and staff were excellent at listening to my concerns and addressing any issues.
    in Lakewood, CO |
    W/ tendinitis in most of my fingers, Dr. Wilson has been forthright about options for treating such (while still making it ok to maintain a very active life). He listens well, proffers ideas/ways to treat the issue, we make a decision & move forward - in my case we are trying cortisone shots, to reduce to swelling, avoid surgery, etc. Thus far, it works well. He recommends heat, so I bought a paraffin wax unit. Bravo! I also use acupuncture, massage and chiropractic - all work well together! A+
