Dr. Wilson explained everything about my procedure and recovery. I never felt that he was unconcerned about my progress nor that he was to busy to listen to my concerns and answer my questions. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

My last trip to Optim was thee fastest and most efficient doctor’s office visit I’ve had in years. I was taken to the treatment room before my scheduled time and promptly treated. The visit was not rushed and all of my questions addressed. Thanks!

I appreciate his professional manner and his thorough diagnosis. Thankfully my symptoms were not as serious as I thought. He performed an entirely successful repair of my left shoulder.

I trust Dr Wilson’s analysis of the cause of my knee pain and the procedure to follow. Dr Wilson is very direct, articulate and willing to take the time to answer any questions or concerns I had. However, I am a very visual person and it was when Dr Wilson was kind enough to show me the x-ray of my knee and explain pointing to the picture that I fully understood. I think it would enhance every patient’s experience and improve the practice overall if you would implement a computer in each room so each Dr would pull up a visual picture of the patient’s x-ray. Thank you.

He was very professional, pleasant, listened, provided me with the information and equipment to strengthen my shoulder as per my request. He took 3 x-rays and told me it would not heal on it's own, would actually freight like the end of a rope, but the pain would go away.

Dr. Wilson has a very professional, straightforward & honest approach when discussing your shoulder issues and appropriate surgery procedures. Since shoulder surgery often has a very long recovery time, he wants to make sure that you absolutely cannot live with your current pain & limited mobility before doing surgery. I decided to postpone surgery.

Everything is excellent. Dr. Wilson did a fine job on my right shoulder replacement. Just time you walk in the door his staff are eager to help you. Waiting time is minimal in the big waiting and short in the back area. I would highly recommend this staff .
