Patient Comments (1)
in Detroit Me |
After two failed surgeries from another doctor within the last year and half, I was operated on by Dr. Wilson three weeks ago, I am totally 100% happy with the surgery performed by Dr. Wilson. I am free of pain after many years. I would recommend him to anyone and so pleased with the results.
