Here's What Our Patients Say About Dr. Wilson

Have " Sanders type 4 bilateral calcaneal fractures ". Unfortunately, I had two orthopedic surgeons before I made to the GREAT DR. WILSON! He is exceptional and extremely knowledgeable. He is the most honest doctor I've seen. Did not sugarcoat the severity of my injuries. I'm so grateful for Dr. Wilson. If you need an orthopedic surgeon specializing in feet, look no further!

I liked the fact that Dr Wilson actually listened to me. This was such a positive experience and it was the first time in a week that my pain level was less than 6. I didn't experience a prolong wait time at this appointment. I have been a client for many years and had positive experiences.
