I had total shoulder replacement done by Dr. Willsey and his staff. Six weeks after surgery I have only compliments for the results and level of care I have had. The pain from the surgery was very minimal and my quality of life has been greatly improved. Dr. Willsey has done an excellent job of communicating and explaining everything about my care. Excellent Dr.!

Very bad experience and a bad outcome on surgery recovery. He doesn't know if feeling will come back. Worst feeling than before surgery.

Dr Willsey is professional and very competent. I had my shoulder replaced by him in February of 2017. He took the time to explain and answer all of my many questions never making me feel rushed or that I was taking too much of his time. He and his staff have become friends not just care givers. Thank you for making this experience as stress free as possible.

Dr. Willsey did both my right and left thumb joint replacements plus carpal tunnel. He did an amazing job. As of today I finished my second thumb joint recovery after 12 weeks. Things are going great. I had my right thumb done on 5/18/16. As of today i no longer live with daily pain that I had before having this done. I want to thank him and his staff as they were truly caring, answered all my questions and are very helpful. I would highly recommend him if you are in need of this.

Dr. Willsey did a CMC surgery on my right hand due to bone spurs on the bottom thumb joint. After surgery (6 weeks) I started therapy. Sandra Perronne was my Occupational Therapist. She was excellent! Couldn't have asked for a better turnout through the whole ordeal. VERY satisified!

Dr. Willsey did carpal tunnel surgery on both my wrists. Both surgeries were done expertly with minimal pain and little or no scarring. Answered all questions fully both before and after surgery. I would definitely have him do any other orthopedic surgeries I would need.

I recently had surgery to replace my arthritic thumb joint! Dr. Willsey was very knowledgeable and thoroughly explained the procedure. On the day of my scheduled surgery, he arrived very promply and answered any and all the questions I had regarding the time period of rehab therapy for this joint. Dr. Matthew Willsey came highly recommended to me as an excellent hand surgeon. I also highly recommend him! His office staff, as well as the PA working with him, are all excellent professionals!

Not knowing what was really going on with my injury, Dr Willsey was the best along with all the care I received form all. I thought I needed surgery on my wrist, but Dr Willsey made every efford to try other options before that would happen. I did not need the surgery. Very down to earth and very easy to talk too. Would highly recommend. Thank You Dr Willsey
