Patient Comments (1)
in The Plains, VA |
Dr. Wilson is truly remarkable. He fixed a somewhat complicated leg/ankle injury for me and the result is perfect. At the time, he mentioned that some motions may be difficult after the surgery, but I have NO problems whatsoever. Dr. Wilson is terrific to deal with, he's straight forward, caring and easy to interact with. There are no 'dumb questions' and he always has time to make his patients comfortable with the process/procedure. Plus, the staff is wonderful to clients.
