November 24, 2014

Dr Wilson has been very good to me. My condition is not easily fixed, but he continues to try to find a solution, even sending me to the Mayo Clinic. I am very grateful for his concern.

September 09, 2014

I was impressed with all of these things & especially in showing that you care and were willing to listen, explain & to give time in thinking for if we had more questions. I felt in good hands!

September 06, 2014

Outstanding Doctor; Dr Wilson

August 19, 2014

They were very concerned about me.

July 04, 2014

It is always nice to come and meet with Dr. Wilson. He answers all our questions and seems to really care about my dad. Even one of his assistants that wasn't on our appointment made time to come in and check on our whole family. It makes us feel very comfortable with the care we receive

July 03, 2014

good

July 01, 2014

Great, care, knowledge, concern.

excellent care

February 23, 2014

I have nothing but good to say about any of our visits to the U of U Medical Center..

January 20, 2014

Dr. Wilson is very knowledgeable he used visual aids to help us understand what was happening to my father's heart

December 29, 2013

Dr. Wilson and Caroline Keeney are both beyond "very good"...there should be a "Superb" choice for these two providers. They ALWAYS spend sufficient time with me and answer all questions. They show a great amount of concern for me and my wife both (wife is not a patient of theirs, but they still show concern for her when we visit or talk on the phone).

December 21, 2013

Wonderful experience, Dr Wilson and all staff are superb

December 08, 2013

they arranged for a same day need test so I would not have to make another trip up for it

December 05, 2013

Brent Wilson is one of a kind. I see lots of Dr. but he is the top of my list. Many could learn from Dr. Wilson

November 04, 2013

The doctor told me what he needed to do and I thought he was absolutely correct. I don't feel either of us has a surplus of time.

November 01, 2013

no meds were prescribed. to my surprise he studied the records on file to tell me about my current medication I am taking.WOW!

October 07, 2013

Dr. Wilson took the time to explain everything thoroughly and in verbage I could understand. He calmed my fears and gave me options to help with my condition. He even set a goal for me to meet for the next visit, which motivates me to reach it. He was very patient in the room, and didn't try to rush me out of there.

October 04, 2013

I felt Dr. Wilson REALLY listened to me and explained why I was struggling after having two heart procedures within one month can take a toll.

October 01, 2013

good

August 29, 2013

Dr. Wilson and his staff are the best!

June 12, 2013

exceptional care and help

June 11, 2013

My visit with the Dr. and his nurses was excellent. I felt comfortable.

June 04, 2013

DR. Wilson was very thorough in explaining every detail of bloodwork, the ultrasound, everything, I had nothing to ask when I left, and even could not think of anything I may have forgotten.

May 13, 2013

Knowledgeable, and great

April 17, 2013

dr was very concerned and gave suggestions on different terapies

April 15, 2013

Dr. Wilson seems genuinely concerned about my heart health.

April 15, 2013

I waited nearly two and one half hours and only spent 5 minutes with the doctor. Rather perfunctory.

April 15, 2013

I had a great experience at the cardiology clinic, but certainly could have used better information about my plan of care. I work as an RN in the hospital, and still had questions regarding the setup and use of my cardiac event monitor, and the plan for future follow-up visits.

March 14, 2013

have nothing bad to say about my stay i was treated very well & i would like to thank the staf very much

March 11, 2013

A superior team of people from start to finish..

March 11, 2013

Dr. Wilson is a concerned doctor and has a great bedside manner. Makes me feel comfortable.

February 04, 2013

Professional people. Only thing that I did see there.

January 01, 2013

Excellent cooperation between nurse and doctor with respect to my concerns. I didn't have to rehash everything when Dr. Wilson appeared. This saved his time and mine.

December 29, 2012

Time and assistance and explanations were equally divided between the Dr (Wilson) and (FELICITY?) AND EXCELLENTLY provided answers and exhibited concern about my well being.

December 10, 2012

Great, caring physician.

December 04, 2012

He spent quality time with me and was kind, caring and reassuring about a possible very serious diagnosis that I am being evaluated for. (even though this was from neurology)

December 03, 2012

This was a routine followup exam. There was no change in medication, no problems to discuss.

September 17, 2012

The procedure went very well. Wished the doctor would have come to give the family information sooner and spent a little more time explaining what was done and why.

September 14, 2012

Dr Wilson, his PA - Julie Savage and his staff have exceeded my expectation in all aspects of my care.

September 05, 2012

Dr. Wilson is excellent.

September 03, 2012

Dr. Wilson was a perfect lend of caring, informative and profesional

August 30, 2012

both my husband and I thought that Dr. Wilson is wonderful..

July 23, 2012

I saw Dr. Wilson several years ago. I think a great deal of him and appreciate his competency and thoroughness.

June 08, 2012

Great people, level of concern and care could not be better.

May 10, 2012

Dr Wilson drew illustrations and explained things in language that I understood. He was very clear and concise. I understood everything, I just wish I would have kept the information he wrote and illustrations he drew to refer to after I left.

May 02, 2012

Dr Wilson was excellent in his care. I am disappointed that I will not be able to stay under his care but am being passed on to the heart failure/transplant team. The questions I have regarding the tests I underwent and my condition will no doubt be completely explained at my next appointment with this team.

April 14, 2012

Although we have two cardiologists here in my home town, I prefer to go to Dr Wilson despite the500 mile road trip (round trip) becasue of the service, expertise, and concerned care I have always experienced at the U of U

March 23, 2012

did see doc just had blood drawn

March 08, 2012

This was an overall good experience. Everyone was courteous and professional.

February 10, 2012

I was completely comfortable with the care. I knew that I had been 'added on' and that the staff was super busy, however, not one person indicated that fact. I never felt rushed or that anyone was inconveniuenced. The care was personalized.
