Any issues with your Cornea and this is the guy to go to! I had to bring my mom to see him for an emergency while she was visiting. He knew exactly what was wrong, even though it was a very strange issue. He was so friendly and professional. I HIGHLY recommend this doctor.
in Provo, UT |
I really enjoyed the excel eye center. The doctor was great in helping me recover from a ulcer I had received from wearing my contacts too often. Dr Wilkinson made sure that I was taken care and made me many follow up appointments to ensure I was going in the right direction. The front desk lady I worked with was the only difficulty I ever have with this place. Once you get passed them its a great experience.

Dr. Wilkinson has always taken the time to explain all of my eye conditions. He seems like the type of Doctor that cares for his patients well being. I would recommend him to my family and friends.
in Provo, UT |
Dr. Wilkinson did a great job at helping me understand my eye exam rather than just telling me that everything looked ok. He took the time to answer all of my questions and came up with a plan for me to improve my vision. I am very pleased with the way he addressed my concerns.
in Salt Lake City, UT |
I was impressed with Dr. Wilkinson. He was very professional and super friendly. I was worried about my eyes but he put me right at ease and clearly explained what was going on. I?d recommend him to my friends.

Dr. Wilkinson saw me for a lasik evaluation and he was very good at taking the time to explain everything to me and give me a realistic expectation of what surgery could do for my vision.
in Alpine, UT |
I was impressed at how quick I got in and out compared to other eye centers in the area. Dr. Wilkinson was nice and helpful and didn?t try to push something I didn?t need. He was very good at explaining the treatment options I had.

My experience with Dr. Wilkinson was great. He was very knowledgeable in his field of expertise. His techs made me feel right at home and were very helpful.

Dr. Wilkinson did my corneal crosslinking in 2012. I felt like everything was explained very clearly and that when I had questions after the surgery I was able to get answers very quickly. Easy going and friendly.
in Provo, UT |
The Dr. took the time to get me an appointment because of my eye problems. I had an ulcer which was needing attention so he was able to get me in and get my vision back to normal. Janet was also so nice to make sure my new contacts were there on time and one day sooner than expected.
in Provo, UT |
He was really down to earth and was great at explaining things about the exam to me. I appreciated the time he took during the visit for me.
