5 out of 5 stars

Dr. Wilson is a consummate professional and wonderfully compassionate human being! She talks to and cares for you as though you were her family member. If you ask a question about your experience, she refers to your records and reads to you what you want to know with the clearest explanation. She, in addition to her accomplished medical/surgical skills, is a healing force simply by being her kind self!
