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.

Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit. In order for the discoveries of Cleveland Clinic physicians' and scientists' laboratories and investigations to benefit the public, these discoveries must be commercialized in partnership with industry. As experts in their fields, Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists are often sought after by industry to consult, provide expertise and education.

To assure professional and commercial integrity in such matters, Cleveland Clinic maintains a program that reviews these collaborations and, when appropriate, puts measures in place to minimize bias that may result from ties to industry. Cleveland Clinic publicly discloses the names of companies when (i) its physicians/scientists receive $5,000 or more per year (or, in rare cases, equity or stock options) for speaking and consulting, (ii) its physicians/scientists serve as a fiduciary, (iii) its physicians/scientists receive or have the right to receive royalties or (iv) its physicians/ scientists hold any equity interest for the physician's/scientist's role as inventor, discoverer, developer, founder or consultant.* In publicly disclosing this information, Cleveland Clinic tries to provide information as accurately as possible about its physicians' and scientists' connections with industry.

Dr. Wilson is one of the most caring doctors I've seen throughout this 4 year medical crisis! He was interested and invested in connecting the dots and getting to the root of my multi-systems issues.

I love Dr. Wilson and his staff, but it is definitely difficult to get an appointment. I think it's too long for an established patient to have to wait 1-2 months for an appointment. I'd understand a wait like that for a new patient, most definitely! But not for a follow-up with an established patient. That being said, Dr. Wilson is certainly worth the wait. He is so knowledgeable, I'd wait any amount of time to see him.

Reviewed on Feb 2, 2021

Generally easy to access. Setting up appointment was fast and easy by phone. Contacting Dr for follow up questions through the MyChart messaging service is a game changer, but I think there are missing features that would make it even better, such as file upload and more options for the type of message. I also get the sense that more needs to be done to triage messages on the backend. Opening up the messaging service in the wrong way will lead to slower responses.
