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.

While Dr. Wilson is a phenomenal physician, the scheduling staff within his office erode the good work he is trying to accomplish. The nurses seem to be pushed far too hard and should be treated better by the hospital as well. Those with the least professional experience (whoever answers the phone in his office) will be disrespectful and it seems, go out of their way to show the patients how much of a burden they really are for them. While I made it through a WADA test without crying at the age of ten, I know that it is unlikely I will make it though scheduling an appointment the same. I work in a welfare office and I find it easier to interview 10 of my clients in a day than speak to that office for five minutes. Those with the least professional experience have a direct contact, and thus the most power. THEY decide whether you will go back to work. THEY decide whether you will or will not see a physician. And, if they fail, there are no consequences and they have no remorse. It's honestly demoralizing and borderline abusive.
