Dr. Wilson's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Wilson "Dr. Wilson is a native of Detroit, Michigan. He attended Wayne State Medical School and went on to do his residency in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation at Schwab Rehab in Chicago. He believes in practicing what he preaches and thus is a fit and healthy individual being a plant-based eater, running marathons and engaging in 100-150 mile bike races. He is passionate about helping his patients live a pain-free life and that is why he went on to earn his second board certification in Pain Medicine and was also certified in Medical Acupuncture. He is an Integrative Medicine provider as he finds ways to integrate both the traditional medical treatments (EMG's, Nerve condution studies, Injections etc) with complementary/alternative ones (Medical Acupuncture, Prolotherapy, Intramuscular stimulation, cupping etc) for optimal results for his patients. His practice, Advanced Physical Medicine, is a comprehensive pain management center featuring not only his medical services and medical acupuncture but also highly trained physical therapists and a certified massage therapist."

My husband has been a patient for a few years... He has many allergies to medication... Dr Wilson's big chip on his shoulder took my husband off his pain medication and my husband has been bed ridden ever since... The doctors need to read patients charts and know what they are dealing with..
