Would highly recommend Dr. Wilkins. He is an amazing doctor. I have necrosis in both hips and right shoulder. He worked fast with diagnosing the disease and getting me in for surgeries. He will be doing partial shoulder replacement this week on my right shoulder. I wouldn’t trust any other doctor to do it!

My experience with Dr Wilkins has been nothing less than outstanding. From the first appointment when he diagnosed my condition to the follow up appointment after surgery. He explained all of of my options, answered all my questions and never made me feel rushed or pressured. My shoulder surgery was done in February and I am happy to say I am pain free and out on the golf course. Dr Wilkins is a terrific surgeon, has a great bedside manner and I am very happy I selected him as my surgeon.

I'm very happy with the care I've received from Dr. Wilkins. He's smart, honest and ready to spend the time with you to answer all your questions. He did a great job on my shoulder and I'm looking forward to him doing my other shoulder asap. I would recommend him to any family member or friend and be confident in my decision that he would do a great job.

I arrived at Dr. Wilkins office with problems in my hip and lower back. Being only 33 I have been laughed out of offices and told my injury was only in my head till Dr. Wilkins took the time to figure out the root of my issue and looked deeper. He has changed my life and helped me move forward with my fiancee pain free. Thank you and god bless

Eternally grateful to Dr. Wilkins. I had rotator cuff injury in 2014 and saw the "top shoulder guy" who refused to do surgery. had low level constant pain and high level flares and made me understand how that lead to no sleep, constant exhaustion ,depression and occasional suicidal thoughts. The bursitis was the worst I ever felt and I was a marathon runner. Been a RN for over 30 yrs and this kid, who was @10 when I became a nurse pretty much fixed me last Fall. Mostly pain free. Thank you.

I recently had an ACL repair with hamstring tendon 8/8/17, Dr. Wilkins was great in explaining the surgery. I was terrified since it was my first surgery ever. He managed my expectations well and although I have a long road of recovery ahead, I know i'm in the best hands. PS the surgery site looks amazing, it will be hard to notice that I even had surgery. I can't say enough great things. Highly recommend.

I went to Dr Romanowski for an evaluation of a knee injury. I was diagnosed with a torn meniscus and Dr Romanowski referred me to Dr Wilkins. Dr Wilkins was very patient and informative in explaining the diagnosis and procedure he would perform. The surgery went very well and my recovery was almost exactly what Dr Wilkins predicted. My overall experience with Dr Wilkins and Kenmore Mercy Hospital was excellent.
