Ratings for Dr. Matthew S. Wilson
ANYONE WITH MENTAL HEALTH PLEASE LISTEN. ALL ABOUT MONEY, COULD CARE LESS ABOUT PATIENTS!! FIND ANOTHER DR.!!! MY PREGNANT GIRLFRIEND WAS RAPED WHICH CAUSED ME TO START HAVING ABOUT 2 PANIC ATTACKS A WEEK AND HE REFUSED TO GIVE ME ANY MEDICATION SINCE I WAS "ALREADY ON AN ANTI DEPRESSANT" HE WRONGLY DIAGNOSED ME WITH BI POLAR IN 1 VISIT. HE DIDNT GET INTO THIS PROFESSION TO HELP PEOPLE (he could care less) HE DID IT FOR THE MONEY!!! I gave him many chances (visits) and there's not enough room to type what he put me through but TRUST ME, YOUR MAKING A MISTAKE WITH HIM!!
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.
