I’m a good listener, who is known for being able to explain complex medical ideas in ways my patients understand. I treat each patient as an individual, not a number. I also love seeing patients cured of cancer. For me hating cancer is personal!

What Patients Say
“I have never requested a second opinion before, so I had no idea what to expect. But you were great. Both my wife and I appreciate your straight forward and wonderful advice. We had never even considered the ‘watchful waiting’ option until you brought it up. We could see it was definitely the best for us. When you mentioned “quality of life” it really struck home! Thank you so very much for your ‘second’ opinion!”
“Many of us have two birthdays. Alcoholics have their date of birth and the day they started their sobriety. You have the date of your birth and when you married your soul mate. I too have two birthdays: when I was born and when you gave me the gift of life by skillfully operating on my bladder tumor. It is impossible to thank you enough for giving me more time on this earth. Hopefully I can thank you for many more years. Even having these 5 years has been a blessing. I’m sure glad you channeled your talents from being a ballerina to a wonderful caring surgeon.”
“Dr. Wilson is absolutely the best! She is always upbeat and cheerful and is very proficient at performing my procedure with a minimum of pain and discomfort. I am so happy to have her as my physician!”
“I knew the first time I talked to you that you were the right surgeon for me. You are the most caring individual I have ever met. You are obviously an awesome doctor, but even a better person. I will never forget what you have done for me. I am slowly getting better. Keep doing what you do. You are a very special doctor and person.”
“I can’t thank you enough for the help you have given me. Prior to seeing you I was pretty despondent and not hopeful about the future. But your knowledge, positive attitude and positively aggressive demeanor have changed my life for the better. I hope that in the midst of your hectic schedule that you live, you have the chance to reflect on the fact that you are really helping people’s lives on a daily basis. If I could make a suggestion about how you deal with your patients it is – don’t change a thing.”
“I am profoundly grateful for your time, knowledge and caring approach to what is for me, a clearly worrisome situation. After our discussion, I walked-out enlightened, nervous, but quite content that your advice was so honest and forthright. Once again Dr. Wilson please know that I am immensely grateful for the time you spent with me yesterday and I won’t hesitate to enlist your advice and/or assistance going forward if needed. I will absolutely recommend you to any/all patients (bladder cancer in particular) that are looking for the BEST!! This is what I encountered yesterday and I am very, very grateful.”
