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.

took 7-8 months to get in with Dr Wilson

Reviewed on Jul 10, 2018

I have no complaints about the professional medical staff but making appointments isn't very dependable. For example, I had an appointment with Dr. Wilson in November but it was cancelled. I was never informed of this. I checked my "MyChart" and it was gone. I called and was told that it was improperly scheduled (new patient instead of returning.) Now, it's booked through the rest of the year and I was told I couldn't schedule an appointment for next year yet. This is not the first time this has happened at the Cleveland Clinic. Especially for older patients, who may not be as comfortable with computers, I could see this being a huge inconvenience. If Dr. Wilson (and others) weren't so phenomenal, I probably would have given up on the Clinic. The scheduling is very inconsiderate. It gives a very "we don't need the business" vibe.
