Dr. Wilden operated on my back in 2014 when she was at L S U S Medical Center in Shreveport. In July of 2017 she did surgery on my neck. I thank God leading me to her and for giving her the wonderful gift she has. I would recommend her to anyone. Great lady.

Dr. Wilden is a people person and made me comfortable after just a few minutes. She was not rushed and took time to answer all my questions, explaining fully. She was very informative and I left there a little less apprehensive. My visit was very pleasant.
