    Dr. Wilson took time to explain the various portions of the exam and to answer my questions.

    Hi, Dr. Wilson took the time to figure out what my problem was. Where another opthamologist shrugged his shoulders and said I don't know so I very much appreciated his expertise and his input. Thank you.

    I have been Dr. Wilson's patient for over 25 years, and never cease to be grateful for this fact. He is not only extremely knowledgeable in his field, but also has the uncommon gift of effective empathy. His demeanor and competence contributes to the well-being of his patients from the moment he enters the examining room. Casey Eye Institute is extremely fortunate to have Dr, Wilson among its members. He is the perfect example to follow and to inspire those around him. Thank You for this opportunity to express my opinion.
