What People Say About Dr. James Wilkerson, MD

Reply
I cannot say enough about Dr Wilkerson, underwent a total wrist fusion and it was not an easy journey he was so attentive to my well being and very compassionate. I have had over 25 surgeries and from my first visit I felt safe and listened to Be is a gifted surgeon but also a gentle man who took time to define my pain, who took time to encourage every step of the way.
