What People Say About Dr. Lynnford Wilson Jr, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I had an unneccessary surgery and it maimed my foot with a large scar and my bone was even disconnected for a cyst. It was an incredibly painful and traumatic experience and has forever changed my life. My foot is deformed now, I can't bend the toes and I can't go barefoot anymore without discomfort from the 6 inch scar it left, I have horrible chronic pain. Inside my foot the metatarsal was essentially amputated because of a small cyst. I read the surgical report and everything was exaggerated to make the surgery seem necessary such as "extremely destructive cyst". I had no choice in the surgery or second opinion because I was referred to him at age 15 and he sold my parents on needing surgery. Not to mention Lynnford Sam Wilson is incredibly cold and condescending, he acted like he didn't have time to do a follow up and the whole time he was just generally arrogant and really pushing for surgery that could have healed on its own. I will forever regret that I was taken to him.

Dr Wilson is the most condescending doctor I’ve ever come across. He and his office shuffles you through like you’re a number, not a person. When I mentioned I was still in pain and asked what else we could do he literally laughed at me in an arrogant manner and called me a drug seeker. He said all patients that ask him for pain relief are drug seekers. His bedside manner is HORRIBLE. Avoid him like the plague. He’s arrogant and not concerned about you.

I had made an appt for a SECOND opinion I was told to make sure to have all my previous drs notes and ct scans with me. The first thing Dr Wilson says to me "HOW DARE YOU MAKE MY OTHER PATIENTS WAIT BY MAKING A MORNING APPT YOUR TYPE OF APPT SOULD BE LAST IN THE DAY!! I explained to the Doctor that I am the PATIENT not his staff . He then told me I have no excuse for gaining weight I can join any gym for $20 and do at least swimming or a stationary bike just because I can't walk. Never AGAIN

Doctor is dismissive & condescending. Acts like his patients are in military and should just do what he says because he says it. He failed to fully detail what to expect following surgery and omitted major recovery points (like the fact that he wanted me flat on my back for 6 weeks following foot surgery). Have been having serious issues following surgery (incl. post surgical infection, pain, cramping, swelling) and he's blown off everything. Will need remedial surgery, which he never mentioned.

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.
