Dr. Wilkerson was outstanding. His expertise allowed him to make a diagnosis with confidence and without doing a vast amount of extra, non necessary tests. He was up front and honest with the choices I had that allowed me to make the decision that was right for me. Within a VERY short time following the knee surgery I felt better than I had felt for a year and within 4-5 weeks I was fully recovered. Great experience with a GREAT doctor!!
