I found Dr. Wilson to be honest and forthright about my injury; I trusted him. He also did my surgery the very next day, because he wanted to do the repair while it was pretty new.

Love Dr. Wilson's team. I have had both hands done now. Within the 2nd hour after surgery I could feel a difference in my hand. Didn't have to keep my fingers folded in to be comfortable or to keep them from going numb. Thank you so much

Straight forward, no surprises, if he doesn’t have the answer to question he will tell you, don’t say things that make you look stupid and himself smarter because he is the doctor.

Dr. Wilson and his staff offer quality healthcare. I’m so grateful that he was my surgeon when I broke my wrist. Dr. Wilson was so confident that he could repair my wrist, and from our first meeting in his office, I knew I was in “special hands.”

I have had 5 trigger finger hand surgeries done by Dr Wilson. He was professional and confident. Always had a smile and did great work; all digits working great. I would recommend him without reserve.

I waited in the consultation room for over 45 minutes while I could hear him talking down the hall. Once he got in, he looked at my file as I explained my injury. He told me I should have gotten an MRI but did not suggest I get one now. He told me he would not repair my ruptured tendon. He told me, "It's just a finger. It's not the end of [my] life," about 15 times in less than the 10 minutes I talked with him. I tried asking questions and he would interrupt me constantly and repeat the above phrase. Rude, inconsiderate and does not care about the person. The more questions you ask, the more agitated he gets. I tried asking why I couldn't hold a plate in my hand if it was just a finger and he said it was from lack of use. The injury was 6 weeks old. I should ha e been able to hold a plate in my hand without dropping it. That didn't seem to concern him though.

Dr Wilson is super professional and a nice guy. He reviewed my case and had my appointment expedited, which I appreciated, but mostly, he really listened. Dr Wilson took the time to get to know me, my specific life/work requirements, and what I needed. I’ve felt listened to and respected. Best of all, my hand is healing nicely.

Dr.. Wilson was amazing. He did a repair to my finger as I cut threw both tendons and my nerve. I am still in the process of healing but I can already start to feel my finger again! This isn't my first injury and let's just say I did not have Dr. Wilson last time and the damage shows. I felt really good after my initial appointment. He knew what he was talking about and knew how precious time was for my injury and was even able to perform the surgery next day. I literally owe my finger to this man!

Dr. Wilson performed a carpal tunnel release and he did a fantastic job...I had been having pain and tingling in my right hand for several years and on the very first night my hand was back to normal. I did have a little bruising for a couple days..but there was hardly any discomfort after the surgery. I have nothing but praise for Dr. Wilson and Hand Surgery Associates.

Dr.Wilson is extremely good and quite personable. He informs u of exactly what is wrong and gives u options. He does not encourage u for surgery. He prefers other options first which I find better than most docs now days.

After a brief wait, I saw Dr. Wilson and he suggested two injections in my palm prior to considering surgery. It has taken 3 days to take effect (I wished he had told me how long that time would be), I was expecting immediate relief. I came in the next day to have it explained to me as well as the puncture trauma that bound up my hand all night with severe pain. I know now that this is rare. All in all, I feel 90% better after 3 days. Here's hoping time will get the next 10%!
