Dr Wilson performed a perfect Surgury on my sons arm. His follow up appointments have alway been informative. He spends as much time with you as you need to understand how the healing is going.

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%!

I met Dr Wilson by a referral from another orthopedic surgeon. Dr Wilson was able to identify an old injury in my wrist, discuss my options to alleviate pain, and performed surgery to remove a portion of a wrist bone. Excellent results, and the experience was everything I hoped for from a Doctor. I recommend Dr Wilson.

Dr. Wilson was very pleasant to speak with, and he answered my questions without any reservations. I felt more confident after our discussion and having relayed that I was afraid/scared about having hand/carpal release surgery. I will be scheduling my surgery soon.

He was focused on my insurance instead of my injury. He was >25 mins late. He gave me <5 mins. No exam. Did not listen. He insulted my doctors and all but said they were incopitent. He was an arogant @ss. He did not care, just money and numbers. I would never go back, would never let him touch me either...what a waste of money and time!!! Me, no doctor after such a long wait, 8 weeks! His MA tried to pressure me into being video taped and recorded after I declined.

Definitely a man more concerned with punching tickets and making kick backs then being concerned with your health and future medical needs. Would make a decent criminal defense lawyer.

About Me

Care Philosophy

I work to develop a partnership with my patients. One of the most important things I need to know is how the physical problem affects your life. We will have a dialogue, through which you will understand the diagnostic process, your treatment choices, and the recovery process. Patients themselves will help guide and direct the diagnostic studies and treatment plan.
