Dr. Scott Wilson's Ratings
WOW! Someone take this guy’s license away PLEASE! My dad arrived at the Rocky View Hospital via ambulance displaying seizure like symptoms. He was admitted into the emergency room and had an evaluation by "Dr." Wilson. Mr. (I don’t feel he deserves the title of Dr.) Wilson started by ignorantly telling us it was supposed to be his day off and he didn’t want to be there. He proceeded to run a couple tests, but since nothing obvious showed up in the MRI or EEG he basically gave up and began to mock my father’s symptoms saying it was “all in his head”. He even had the nerve to pull my terrified mother aside and ask her if my dad was "in need of attention" - alluding to the possibility that he might be "acting". I’d like to let Mr. Wilson know due to his stellar abilities as a “doctor” he missed a massive brain tumor that took my dad’s life 3 months later. Thanks Mr. Wilson, I hope you get the same care and attention from a medical professional in your time of need.
I have been seeing Dr Wilson for over seven years for my CIDP. Since this was a very rare disorder, no one in this area had much experience with it, it took many many tests such as Xrays, CTScans, MRIs, lumbar puncture, blood tests and ultra sounds, starting in June to diagnose the problem. Waiting times between tests were the biggest problem and I finally got a conclusive diagnosis and was put on IVIG in October. By that time I was totally disabled. Over the next 3 years I had to learn to walk again and become self-sufficient. During all this time he was very supportive and made time to meet with my family and myself both on Calgary and in Canmore. He discussed the treatment alternatives and is always open to talking about problems. He is supportive of me being active and traveling. He really listens to me on check-ups. I have been happy with my treatment and support I have received from him and would recommend him to other CIDP and GBS patients.
Dr. Wilson was thorough, polite and helpful. He was thoughtful, reviewed my health history extensively and was able to rule out several serious conditions. If my issue doesn't clear up, I'll be very happy to call back for a followup - when I called to book my appt initially, the receptionist answered on the second ring. The only reason he's not rated a 5 by me: Doc did mention that my issue may be due to stress which, in my opinion, is the worst doctor excuse for health issues ever. It delays resolution and diagnosis. I have a pretty relaxed life and my colleagues under far more stress don't have my health issue. That was my only complaint, it's a real pet peeve of mine!
I was a bit worried after reading the previous comments for this doctor, but was pleasantly surprised once I got there. Dr.Wilson took the time to show and thoroughly explain the MRI images. As a mental health professional myself I thought he was very knowledgable and caring. I had bad experiences in the past with neurologists (arrogance, dismissive) so I was relieved that this time was different. I highly recommend Dr. Wilson; he is well-worth the long drive to Discovery Ridge!
Impossible to get a hold of this doctor for follow ups. He always says to call and book your next appointment in three months but they never take the call or return your message. Good Luck! with this guy
Found Dr.Wilson to be very knowlegable but needs to improve his bedside manner. Cost me disability payments through my insurance company at work. Takes notes via dictation,after 3 months still did not have a hard copy to send to the insurance company. Not acceptable, very frustrating. I changed neurologists.
The majority of the problem lies with the receptionist not answering the phone, ever. Even after numerous messages and faxes, I still got no response. How is one supposed to follow the prescribed treatment if there is no response to questions on what to do next?
I know that many have had problems with this Dr., but I saw him in the fall of 2009 and he was attentive, listened to me while I described my symptoms, and spent what I felt was more attention than I expected. His clinical nurse who did the initial tests on me was fabulous, and I was surprised that I needed follow-up attention. Dr. Wilson ordered some blood work, the purpose of which I have no idea, and since I hadn't heard anything back from his office or my GP's office, I assumed that all was good. Today I got a surprise phone call from a hospital in Calgary telling me I was booked in for an opthalmalgic ultrasound, and the hospital was just doing their regular 'reminders'. I was shocked, I had no idea why the test was ordered, and neither Dr. Wilson nor my GP had contacted me about this upcoming test. However, I still have faith in Dr. Wilson; I'll give him the benefit of the doubt! He was very attentive when I was with him.
