Caring Dr!

5/17/2016

The confidence that Dr. Wilson projected during our conversations made me feel very at ease. When I met Dr. Wilson, I had been told by another Doctor at another facility that he had never seen my condition and that a stroke could be immediate in my very near future. Dr. Wilson assured me that he could fix my problem and followed that statement by doing that very thing. He performed the surgery without complications just as he had told me. In fact it turned out better that I had anticipated!

5/2/2016

*Dr. Wilson has been my NS for 10 years now, I would recommend him to anyone he is the greatest.

4/30/2016

This was a 3 month post-op visit with neurosurgeon. He was able to see and comment on the MRI I had 2 hours earlier. It was a very short visit since he had to rush to do an emergency surgery. All my questions were answered during the visit.

4/19/2016

Dr. Wilson is an excellent physician . He has performed spinal fusion surgery twice for me. I will go to him again if necessary.

3/25/2016

The doctor and staff make me feel like I am their biggest priority. I feel they know me well and they make me feel important.

3/18/2016

The PA *Lindsay was very nice, really liked her. *Dr. Wilson is the greatest!!

2/12/2016

Very good care.

1/24/2016

Dr. Wilson is very kind and empathetic

1/22/2016

I have been a patient of Dr Wilson' for 1 1/2 years. He is very professional, knowledgeable, caring, and takes time to explain to me information (pros and cons) concerning my problem. I have much confidence and respect for Dr Wilson-& would not consider going to anyone else. I believe God is using him to bring healing to my situation.

1/4/2016

I have previous experience with Dr Wilson from my husband whom he treated for cancer. I immediately knew it was Dr Wilson I wanted to see when my condition arose. I put complete trust in him.
