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.

Dr. Wilson was amazing! From the moment he walked into the room and realized I was cold and immediately got a space heater to make sure I was comfortable, I knew I was in good hands. He truly listened to everything that I said. He asked questions, restated what I said to clarify, and was involved the entire time. I have never had a doctor be so involved, caring, understanding, supportive, and compassionate before; and I have seen a lot of doctors! I left the appointment feeling scared about my new diagnosis, but hopeful that everything will be alright. I don't think I would've felt any hope if it hadn't been for Dr. Wilson's amazing bedside manner.

Dr Wilson is the only one who seemed to know what was going on with me. No other doctors in my area knew. I'm extremely thankful for getting in at the clinic with Dr Wilson.
