Dr. Matthew S. Wilson's Ratings
I visited Dr. Wilson based on a friend's recommendation. Since my insurance was accepted there, I decided to give it a shot. It would be an understatement to say that my expectations were surpassed after my initial appointment. There was no waiting time- in fact, since I've been a patient of Dr. Wilson, I have never waited for an appointment. Dr. Wilson is a knowledgable doctor with impressive credentials. He is a patient, kind doctor who listens to his patients and prescribes the appropriate medicine regimines. I've been a patient of Dr. Wilson's for three years now, and I would not switch to any other psychiatrist.
This doc borders on incompetent when it comes to patient care. I agree with a previous reviewer that basically I decide what medication to try next. I have a scrip that he wrote a couple of years ago and I needed a refill. The office was contacted and never responded to the pharmacy. After TWO weeks of repeated contacts with his office I was told he could not refill the script unless I made an appointment. He is leaving in two days and will not be able to see me. I am leaving on vacation in two weeks so there is no overlapping time. This would not have been a problem if the office had told me about the need for an appointment two weeks ago when first contacted. Now I am faced with potentially going through antidepressant withdrawal while on vacation in Europe. The office suggested that I call my primary care doc and ask for the script. I am dumbfounded! The conduct of the doc and his office borders on incompetence. I will report this to whatever authority will listen.
He never seemed to know what he was doing for the two years I was his patient. More often than not I was the one who had to decide what medication I would be going on- a decision I'm not in sound mind to make and that is HIS job to make. After playing musical medications and going through hell I'm moving on to a new (and better) psychiatrist. The worst was trying to contact him. The office never answers and even during an emergency when I called his exchange TWICE I received no answer for many hours. The only plus is that he is a cheerful man. I just don't think psychiatry is the career for him, I sincerely worry for his other patients and would hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Wilson is wonderful. Very detail-oriented and observant. Very knowledgeable and offered different options (not just 1, as did other psychiatrists I have seen). I'm very glad Dr. Wilson is my psychiatrist. He made it clear that he would be there for me, whenever I might need help; and I could detect his sincerity.
