Ratings for Dr. Colin Wilson
Dr. Wilson has been my family doctor for a number of years, and overall, it's been a very positive experience. He's highly knowledgeable, much as an internist would be, yet has a refreshingly unpretentious, down-to-earth way of speaking with patients; there's none of this, "I'm the doctor and I'll tell you what's good for you," business! Dr. Wilson collaborates with patients to help them make the decisions that are best for them; I do get the sense that he's busy, and there's often a bit of a wait, but once I'm in the office and the door is closed, I feel I have his undivided attention. We patients are so critical of doctors these days; it's like we expect people to be perfect, and if they're not, we feel we have the moral duty to sound-off on the internet - anonymously, of course - as though we need to "protect" potential patients who might otherwise wait - God help them - 25 minutes in the waiting room. We'd be better-off remembering the many Canadians unable to find any family doctor (good or not), and remember that family doctors are in short-supply, and many must surely be overloaded with work. While I don't have an issue with "rating sites," generally, I wonder how many people here consider what it would be like if their industry adopted the same model, with a "RateCo-Worker" website, where your colleagues could anonymously slander you, while you'd be left with no recourse to defend or explain yourself. I'm sure doctors have feelings, too, and it wouldn't kill people to put some thought - and manners - into writing their reviews; it would also make their reviews (especially the negative ones) appear more measured. My two cents, for what it's worth.
I was having extreme anxiety and depression I couldn't eat or sleep, I was terrified. Dr. Wilson told me to get a hobby , he was not helpful at all in fact he made me feel like I should just get over it, I will never go see him again. It felt like I was just wasting his time, I was very hurt by his lack of understanding.
Dr. Wilson is the best doctor i have seen. He is knowledgeable, thorough and friendly. The only negative is his secretary. She has mixed up appointments and times twice. She rarely answers the phone, on one occasion she did not return my message and on another she returned it over 24 hours later.
I have been seeing Dr. Wilson for almost 2 years now. I have found him to be extremely helpful, friendly, and professional. This doctor will take your concerns seriously. Whenever I need an appointment I am always able to get in in a timely manner.
