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.

I know Neuro ANS is busy all over the country but expecting our home providers who know nothing to take over after a consult without more guidance is causing a lot of anxiety. I felt so hopeful leaving the office but my local office typically takes 3 months to get in, but also they just don't have the knowledge and they also work 12-14 hrs/day. I will continue to listen to the iTube videos dr Wilson created which are AWESOME!!! Share them w my drs, attend the SMA. Hopefully you can clone Dr Wilson!

I felt heard, understood, and confident in his ability to find the root cause of the health care issues I have experienced for years.

Dr.Wilson is such an asset to Cleveland Clinic! His knowledge and wisdom is brilliant! But even better than that is how kind, understanding, and interested he is in each individual! I am a health care provider at a teaching hospital in another state with brilliant researchers and PhD/MDs. It is rare to find someone so intelligent and brilliant who also is so caring, understanding, and so involved in patient care! I would also like to comment on how he had already made himself very knowledgeable on my case by reading through all the medical records he had, on how organized he is, and also on how open and willing he is on sharing information. His knowledge as well as the packet of information on dysautonomia are invaluable to me. I learned so much from him.
