Ratings for Dr. Michael S. Wildstein
Dr. Wildstein is a very nice person who explains everything and answers all your questions. He did a fabulous job on my elbow surgery. I will be eternally grateful to him. I always bring a list of questions, but after he talks to me....I find that he has already answered all my questions. Would not hesitate to go back to him. He comes into the waiting area with a smile to get his own patients. :-)
After researching and meeting with numerous surgeons about which procedure would be best for me, I was fortunate to learn of Dr. Wildstein's expertise with lateral interbody fusions. Quite frankly, he saved my life. I could not walk to my mailbox and surgery had become the only option for me. From our first meeting, I could tell that Dr. Wildstein was incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about this patients and work. Our first meeting lasted over an hour and he took the time to show me my MRIs and X-rays. We met a second time with my husband and he took the same amount of time and patience with us. He answered all our questions without hesitation. His bedside manner is exemplary and he was always available via cell phone after surgery. I wouldn't recommend anyone else if you are considering spinal surgery or any other orthopedic-related work. Truly and exceptional human being who truly enjoys his craft.
My husband was in an accident. The amount we paid was for hospital care as well as followup visits. This physician comes into the waiting room to get his patients HIMSELF. Also so him go out to his car and get someone a pair of crutches. He refused to operate on my husband - said it was unnecessary. 4 years later my husband is GREAT. We had to get a 2nd opinion as it was an auto accident. The other Doctor ordered expensive tests and said my husband might not walk without immediate surgery. An elderly friend of mine is completely free of back pain after Dr.W operated on him. Awesome gentleman. He is very reassuring, and calming.
I would not trust another spine surgeon/orthopedist in town. He will treat your condition appropriately and not just immediately recommend surgery to make a buck. I, as many people have in Charleston, have ended up with Dr. Wildstein after having bad experiences elsewhere. He is known to 'fix' what others have done so to speak. I highly recommend him!
