Was amazing experience for over 6 months until they had problems in their business office with billing, which was their own employee's errors. Yet they blamed me as the patient for payment that was not my responsibility. Then the office manager, who happens to also be Dr. Wilson's wife, told me that I had reached Maximum Medical Improvement and would no longer receive care from them. Not sure how it is ethical for an office manager to inform a patient of end of care, with no visit with, or documentation from the physician himself, and despite the patient reporting ongoing pain. I also feel that Dr. Wilson did not like my neurosurgeon making a recommendation for a treatment option that Dr. Wilson himself had not considered. Very disappointing, as I would have recommended him to others until that very unprofessional end occurred.

Knows his stuff! Master of his skills! No wait for appointment! Offers many options to addressing pain without pain medication. Takes time to get thoroughly informed with current and history. Truly appreciate his experience and concern.

I arrived for a new patient appointment at 3:00pm. There was only one person in front of me. At 4:00pm I was called to the back to see the doctor. I could hear the receptionist speaking to another office staff person about getting other patients back to visit the doctor. They placed two other established patients in the patient rooms and Dr. Wilson waited on them before me. Needless to say I left at 5:00 without seeing the doctor. His office staff is terrible.

It was very easy to talk with Dr Wilson. He was kind and knowledgeable. The staff worked hard to help me understand my insurance and get my appointments set up. The only downfall has been a very long wait time in the office.

Dr. Wilson is very articulate about what and why I have the pain I have and thoroughly examined me to find this. He made me understand what was going on with my knee better than any previous doctor. The kindness and care shown from he and his office staff has been consistently effective and helpful. His diagnostic response to my issues have helped my healing consistently. This is my second problem in 9 years that he has helped me with. I could not be happier with the experiences.

I highly recommend Dr. Wilson! He and his amazing staff offer the most comprehensive rehabilitative care available. The last several months of treatments involved physical therapy, laser therapy, medical acupuncture and intra-muscular stimulation treatment. He cares about his patients deeply, and goes to great lengths to help people recover from their pain. I thought my life would be full of pain and misery following surgery but he gave me direction and hope. I am so grateful!

I've been diagnosed with RSD (or chronic regional pain syndrome) from a shoulder injury. I've had 2 surgeries, 3 EMGs, 2 MRIs, 3 CTs, 2 stellate nerve blocks, 4 subscapular nerve blocks, 2 different model TENs units, physical therapy... Tried to schedule an appointment and I was contacted the next day to be informed that "Dr Wilson did not see fit" to see me as a new patient because I "have a permanent condition that requires medication". "Pain Specialist" in title? I guess only if its temporary

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..

Awful, pretentious doctor with a chip on his shoulder. He immediately compared the medications I was on prior to accepting him as my doctor to those only a cancer patient should have. He literally fell over on the bench when I told him my prior dosage. Then, Dr. Wilson insisted on prescribing a pain medication I had a known, TRUE allergy to. I have pictures of the aftermath of just one dose, but this site doesn't allow photos. He refused to see me for an emergency appointment. DO NO HARM, SIR.

I began seeing Dr. Wilson in July, 2017 for some severe back issues. The very first appointment I had to see him, I spent over 2 hours waiting past my initial appointment time before I even saw him. PT could only be completed in his office. They refused to see me after saying that I missed an appointment that I never made. They dropped me as a patient.

Dr. Wilson has been treating me for many years. I have had two back surgeries (cervical fusions) and have received no pain relief from this surgery. In addition, I have many other issues with my back and I am in chronic pain everyday. No one else has been able to help me with my problems with the exception of Dr. Wilson. He is extremely knowledgeable and easy to talk to. If it weren't for him, my pain levels would stay extremely high. I consider him a God send.

After losing my compassionate doctor of 9 years, I spent MONTHS seeking someone to HELP me work toward being pain free again but also HELP me to have a reasonable quality of life with a severe injury that causes serious pain. From Day 1, Doc Wilson was KIND and COMPASSIONATE, treating me like a human being with a struggle that he could assist me with and he treated me the way he would likely treat his own loved ones. His staff is EXTREMELY knowledgeable and kind as well; Melissa, Mary, Devon....
