in Sebastian, FL |
Wonderful doctor. There are doctors on the East coast that are familiar with his fine work! Thank you!
in Lotus, CA |
I saw Dr. Wilson for trigger finger issues. I was seen quickly once I arrived at his office, & found Dr. Wilson & his staff to be extremely efficient, pleasant & easy to talk to. Dr Wilson took the time to explain the cause of my problem & to discuss in detail what the surgical procedure would involve. The actual surgery was the most "pleasant" surgical experience I've had thus far.- Dr.. Wilson & his surgical staff were very caring, & thorough during the entire procedure..

Well all I can say is I was perfectly happy with my visit even though I ended up with an injection. He was gentle and caring plus made sure I wouldn't be in pain. Discussed the problem and I will go back but hopefully won't need to since that would most likely mean surgery. ??

Dr. Wilson is an experienced surgeon. He's easy to talk to, explains things well, & clearly cares about the well-being of his patients. I had a severe wrist fracture & he was in no way intimidated by it. I am only 2 weeks postop, but I believe that I will have a good outcome thanks to Dr. Wilson's skill & care. He has a sense of humor, & takes the time to answer questions thoughtfully. I worked in ortho for many years & I would rate him at the top of surgeons I worked with.
in Chico, CA |
Dr. Wilson is a kind, caring and highly skilled surgeon. He performed LRTI surgery on my left hand in February 2016 with an excellent result, which I needed due to the failure of an earlier surgery with a different surgeon. I recommend him with no reservations.
in Antelope, CA |
Dr Wilson cares about his patients and is an excellent surgeon. My carpal tunnel surgery was a complete success! I had lost all feeling in some of my fingers and it all came back within the timeline he estimated. Also, you cannot even see the scar and it's only been 9 months out.
in Sacramento, CA |
He was rude, uninterested, disrespectful and demeaning, he did not care nor did he want to know about my injury, he was not concerned about my safety in my occupation regarding the injury I have. He did not explain anything thoroughly, the more questions I asked the more agitated he became. At the end of the visit he went as far as to walk out on me. No regard for patients or the pain involved with injury. No explanation of treatment. He is a disgrace to the medical field
in California |
I met with Dr. Wilson regarding an old injury. With no prior medical history or medical tests and examinations The first thing out of his mouth was 'Why are you here?'. After that he immediately became combative and began interrogating me regarding my old injury as if I was lying about my symptoms. After describing my accident and injury be began saying 'I don't know how that could have happened-it doesn't make any sense again questioning my truthfulness. In his report he insulted me.
in Sacramento, CA |
Dr Wilson is a fantastic doctor who is very smart and knows his stuff. His bedside manor is an A+. He is very caring and compassionate about his patients and you feel this by the way he treats you. He recently performed surgery on my thumb for a bone infection, I am now on the mend only going up from here. Than you Dr. Wilson for taking such good care of me.
in Sacramento, CA |
He is a condescending, arrogant, judgmental and very unpleasant person. He has no concept of what the law of HIPAA requires and treats all his patients with an open exam room door so everyone can hear each others consultations. He needs to be taken down off his high horse and actually show his patients some compassion.
in Nevada City, CA |
Dr.Wilson was extremely professional and knowledgeable. He seemed very caring and always tried to be as gentle as possible when dealing with my broken wrist. He was also very encouraging about how my wrist was healing. I'd definitely recommend him and his helpful staff.
