Dr. Ross Wilkinson's Ratings
I had my ACL repaired by Dr. Wilkinson in April 2014, and I have had excellent results since the surgery and have been able to return to competitive volleyball in full capacity. Though some may find Dr. Wilkinson a bit cold, and at some times abrupt, I found his straight forward approach very comprehensive; he knew exactly what he and I needed to do.
I had 2 surgeries done by Dr.Wilkinson (torn meniscus fixed first followed by ACL restoration) in 2011. In my view Dr.Wilkinson is a great knee surgeon and direct communicator. I consider myself lucky to have had Dr.Wilkinson fix my knee.
Dr. Wilkinson is my knee hero. I blew out my knee (ACL/MCL) in June 2013 and then had surgery in November 2014 to repair a torn meniscus. As many others commented, he can be abrupt, but he's also very warm and caring and most importantly, an amazing surgeon. I wouldn't see anyone else. If I could give 100 stars I would!
Dr. Wilkinson is a great doctor who gives it to you as it is, I appreciate the direct approach and also find him empathetic to the situation. Going in for my second surgery (1 meniscus and 1 ACL), I would not see another doctor.
Okay, admittedly, this doctor's bedside manner is not great. However, when approaching any physician with regards to surgery, beside manner is a luxury, not a priority. I was injured playing basketball in university an had a torn meniscus and ACL, which ultimately required two surgeries to fix. Dr. Wilkinson was prompt, efficient, and most importantly, extremely effective. I am back to where I was prior to the injury, and my knee feels better than ever. I would 100% recommend this physician. I actually found his straightforwardness (which some may misinterpret as him being cold) quite reassuring in that I knew exactly what was wrong from the start, what needed to be done, and ultimately how quickly it could all be achieved. Looking back, I could not have asked for a better orthopaedic surgeon.
Very knowledgible, able to think out of the box, personable, empathetic, has paitinets best interest in mind, polite, totally focussed on patient at hand. Even under time pressure, always spent the time required to answer all questions, provide pros and cons and give his best advise. Follow up appointments were excelent and kept me in his follow up system until he was totally satisfied that would be OK on my own. Would highly recommend this doctor for any knee problem.
Had orthoscopic knee surgery performed by Dr. Wilkinson for a torn meniscus at the end of April 2013. I had also suffered ligament damage originally that had healed because I waited so long to have the surgery (2 years). My knee is now 100% and I have not had a problem. The recovery was longer than I had hoped (2 - 3 months to 100%, was golfing by the end of June), and my swelling was pretty bad, but this was more indicative of work obligations and difficult living arrangements during the recovery. Dr. Wilkinson's approch can be abrupt, but I appreciated his no BS, professional approach. Based on where my knee is now I would say Dr. Wilkinson does great work, no reservation recommending him.
My pre-teen daughter was referred to Dr.Wilkinson by our sports md for knee pain and a positive MRI result of meniscus "derrangement". He examined my daughter for about 7-10 minutes. Then he spent a few minutes reviewing the MRI, said nothing was wrong, she would be better with 2 years of "rest" , and refused to answer my questions with anything other than "two years rest". It was devasting to my daughter, a competitive athlete, especially because he showed no sympathy or kindness at all. He had no explanation for her extreme pain, nor did he ask for x-rays or order any additional tests. We just saw another surgeon who thankfully agreed with the MRI, had additional x-rays taken, where he found a broken bone which explains the pain she has suffered for over 6 months. It's possible Dr. Wilkinson doesn't normally treat young patients, though he should make that known to his peers so they will not refer youth to him.
