About Robert Wilson, DO

Interested in work to help enhance the delivery of patient-doctor relationships. Using the doctor-patient relationship as a modality of studying to improve patient outcomes, launching patients for success back from specialty to family physician.

Would love to develop and be part of helping models to help patient succeed locally. Help develop care models to help patient care of chronic disease to succeed without not creating more burden (for lack of better words) on specialist caring for chronic disease.

I truly find my work on S3 an honor and privilege. I feel very honored every day to put my tie on and coat to walk from the parking garage to the S3 floor. It is a rewarding experience to sort out the stories and to be integrated in an organized system. Anything to help S3 grow and develop as a comprehensive neurological floor will be asset.

The teaching opportunities with student and residents truly is my selfish and joyous professional work. I thank Dr. Samples, Dr. Levin, Dr. Mays, and Dr. Kriegler for this opportunity to teach.
