Marietta, GA |
Dr. Wilkes did my knee replacement and did an excellent job. A very good listener, he was willing to consider other remedies as opposed to going straight to surgery. (very different experience from other docs I saw). He took great care of me and closely followed my progress through and after rehab. He consistently answered all my questions and I trusted his decisions. As a result, I now have my life back and am very active. I have and will continue to recommend him to others.

Dr Wilkes is great in all ways. He truly cares and takes the time to help you to get well. He loves his job and loves helping people..You can trust him to take care of you.. I have had several operations and I know that he is who you can count on.

I had a traumatic finger injury and Dr. Wilkes was attentive to my concerns and after the surgery I have full use of my finger. Thanks Dr. Wilkes

He didn't properly address my hand injury and the MRI recommended by the ER doctor. I finally went to another surgeon who then had to amputate my finger.
Atlanta, GA |
He is an excellent doctor. He diagnosed my problem which needed surgery and fixed it so I am now pain free and at full activity. He is very caring an attentive. I recommend him highly.
in Austell, GA |
This was the worst "Doctor" I've ever visited. He had no sympathy for what I was going through, didn't make me feel like a priority, and I was not satisfied with my knee surgery.
Roswell, GA |
Doesn't listen to his patients. Thankfully I found someone who did and fixed my problem.
Kennesaw, GA |
Got infection, 3 surgeries, wound failed and was open for weeks, skin is discolored and skin is stuck to tendon so moves when foot moves.

Dr. Wilkes is an excellent doctor. I went in because I had been diagnosed somewhere else with a sprained wrist. It had been 6 weeks and I was still in pain. Dr. Wilkes was friendly, detailed in the information he gave me, took his time with me, answered all of my questions. My wrist was actually broken, not just sprained. The x-ray tech was super fast and got results without pain caused to me. I can't say enough good things about the entire staff and the whole experience. Highly recommended!

In a word, EXCELLENT!

While a great trustworthy doctor, the office bills you for every possible penny. I'm talking a $1,050 visit to put a splint on my broken finger... I wish i was kidding.
Diana and Chastity were awesome. Great doctor and great staff.
