Dr. Wilson took time and cared. He is a highly competent orthopedic surgeon while also able to think outside the box diagnostically. His treatment plan goes beyond just surgery.

Dr. Wilson explained information very well. Excellent bed side manner. Reviewed x-rays with me and recommended an MRI. The x-ray staff was excellent. Showed care and concern for me. They reviewed the x-ray on their end before they brought me back to the patient room. They wanted to make sure they had clean x-rays before they left me. The staff asked about best times and days. The staff then scheduled the appoint with MRI for me. Was able to get me in for an MRI within a short period. I'm very pleased with this office and the staff. They're all wonderful. I would recommend Dr. Wilson and his team to anyone.
