I have read the reviews posted about Dr. Wilder, some of which have referred to him as rude, arrogant, uncaring, and incompetent. I have never experienced anything approaching those comments during my visits with Dr. Wilder. He is a quiet man who says what he believes without mincing words. Frankly, I appreciate those qualities in a physician. It doesn't take much to elicit negative responses nowadays. Personally, I consider Dr. Wilder to be an excellent physician and diagnostician.

Rude, arrogant. Failed to check my mothers pacemaker properly which landed her in the hospital in crisis. 85 years old. Incredibly incompetent. And uncaring. We fired him.
