Dr. Willsey is very friendly, and he explains pending treatment(s) thoroughly. He also has a positive attitude, which is definitely a plus. He has inspired, and earned my trust in the half-dozen or so times I have had encounters with him - in his office as well as in the operating room.

Dr. Willsey and his staff were excellent to work with. Dr. Willsey performed Basal Joint Arthritis Correction Surgery on Both my right and left thumbs (3 months between surgeries). He took the time to explain everything that was involved so I went into both surgeries relaxed and knowing what to expect afterward. Would I recommend Dr. Willsey, Absolutely! So much so that my husband is now making an appointment to have his trigger fingers fixed.

Dr Willsey allowed me to get back into my Ironman training routine quickly after a severe wrist injury. He understood my training regimen and helped craft a recovery plan catered to my needs.

I had a total shoulder replacement done three months ago by Dr. Willsey. According to him, I am young for that type of surgery and, according to him, that has assisted with my healing. I could not be more pleased with every aspect of the surgery and recovery. I was originally told that I would probably have to go to Physical Therapy for three or four months. I was discharged from PT after a month and a half. Dr. Willsey has been great with every aspect of the process, from beginning to now.

I personally would give a high recommendation to anyone in need of Orthopedic Surgery. Not only would I give that recommendation but during the occupational therapy the “Hand Specialists” I saw not only praised his work but one said if I ever had to have Orthopedic Surgery, I would not want to go to anyone else.

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.

About Me

Care Philosophy

Taking the time to listen and communicate with patients is essential. I use a conservative approach with many nonoperative treatments to offer as well as some of the newest surgical technology and techniques when surgical intervention is required.
