June 26, 2015

Dr. Wilson is terrific, he has operated on me and my life is better because of his thoughtful care

June 13, 2015

See prior comments. I am a healthcare provider and was quite pleased and impressed with the quality of care. People clearly went out of their way to be helpful. This was a first visit.Thank you.

June 12, 2015

I wasn't fully confident when the doctor said he'd never seen my issue in someone who hadn't had previous sinus surgeries and when he couldn't say why I was having my particular issues/couldn't identify a cause. I am seeking a second opinion just in case the recommended treatment doesn't end up addressing the cause of my problems. The doctor was perfectly nice, took plenty of time to show me my test results, and explain what he thought was going on, and what his recommended response would be.

May 27, 2015

The surgery we went in for wasn't done right

May 19, 2015

LOVE Dr. Wilson, referring a friend from Wyoming with HHT to him.

May 19, 2015

He was like a ray of sunshine! So happy and friendly.

May 13, 2015

Overall the doc was thorough and explained the options and chosen course of treatment.

April 21, 2015

good

April 17, 2015

I loved Dr. Wilson, he made me less nervous

April 07, 2015

Dr Kevin Wilson was great! Very friendly and he explained everything very well. I would defiently recommend him.

April 05, 2015

Dr. Wilson and the resident were both professional and personable making the visit from start to finish as smooth as possible. I liked the monitor for the scope so I could follow as the doctor explained.

April 05, 2015

no problems

March 27, 2015

I came in very concerned about a lesion on my tongue. Drs Wilson and Padia were *excellent* at both calming my fears and helping me with an issue that wasn't at the top of my list, but they gave great advice!

March 14, 2015

It was such a pleasant visit - Dr. Wilson should win a Dr. Congeniality award.

February 27, 2015

Three days after my visit the pain I described continued and then I experienced my first case of vertigo. I don't feel that the concerns I expressed were taken seriously and/or checked out carefully.

February 06, 2015

Dr Wilson did more in 5 minutes for me than any Dr. in Southeast Idaho has done for me in 35 years. The best thing that every happened was Dr. Hinckley in Idaho Falls referred me to Dr. Shelton for a stapedectomy 12 years ago. Dr. Shelton recently referred me to Dr. Wilson. I felt so good leaving Dr. Wilsons office I felt like we are finally getting somewhere oh what a relief! I have felt the Dr. Hinckley has been very passive the past few years with the problems with my u-Station tubes. I feel like Dr. Wilson wants to get to the bottom of it!

February 03, 2015

I felt like he did not listen to my concerns that he did not care why I was there that he was basing his treatment of me from a visit when I had seen him at the University hospital ENT clinic 4 yrs ago for the same thing and he did not fully listen to me or examine me. He kept asking me why I had come there and what I wanted to accomplish but I never felt like he really listened to me .To me it gave me the feeling that he felt I was wasting his time and then he told me there was nothing he could do for me and I should go home and just live with it. Just like 4 yrs ago my symptoms were "perceived" in his words and I came back to him this time because I thought he would have something to compare things to but no! my bad so I will never be back and I will not recommend him to my family or others

January 22, 2015

The Dr. was SO patient in listening to my concerns, he explained everything that he was going to do and even asked me if it was okay before proceeding! Also, I was told everything about the medications I was being prescribed, and after expressing that I didn't care for one of them, was given a CHOICE to use another one. I feel like I was well listened to, and not just shuffled in and out like many other places.

January 19, 2015

Dr. Wilson was very thorough and gentle. He diagnosed my condition and explained exactly how and why I feel the way I do. He provided me with a solution and did so all while making me feel like I was in great hands.

January 18, 2015

I would like to have seem other parts of my sinuses on the monitor. One area causes me problems daily.

January 15, 2015

Dr. Wilson is very nice and I enjoyed seeing him. I would gladly recommend him to anyone.

January 11, 2015

I really appreciated how conservative he was about surgery

December 28, 2014

I already recommended this facility to others who started using it too :-)

December 17, 2014

good

December 08, 2014

Both the MA and Dr. Wilson were great

November 17, 2014

we love dr. Wilson

November 04, 2014

I can't say enough nice things about Dr. Wilson. Just a great doctor and has great patient care.

October 28, 2014

Dr. Wilson did a fabulous job on a procedure that I needed done many years ago, and finally underwent.

October 17, 2014

I was originally referred to two other doctors that work at the University hospital. This made me hesitant to go somewhere else. However, Dr. Wilson was extremely friendly and understanding in listening to my concerns and very helpful in how he addressed them. Our conversation was right on my level, not oversimplified or filled with jargon. I'd consider him an excellent doctor.

October 17, 2014

Dr. Wilson is excellent. Provides excellent care. Very clear in his explanations, and he has very strong opinions. Some drs. can be nebulous.

October 14, 2014

Dr. Wilson is great!

October 13, 2014

good

October 06, 2014

The first, and longest, visit was from a student. He had a poor attitude. The visit seemed confrontational. He didn't find anything. I did not like him. I would never make an appointment to see him again. The real doctor, who came in later and stayed a very short time, was quick, courteous, and helpful. I would recommend him, and see him again.

September 20, 2014

good experience

September 16, 2014

While I hope never to have to undergo this procedure again, this would be the team for me.

September 15, 2014

Dr. Wilson is a fabulous health care provider. I truly value his expertise as he assists me with my medical concerns.

September 12, 2014

I felt rushed.

September 11, 2014

Dr. Wilson is great! He always addresses any concerns I have with my allergy shots.

August 27, 2014

It felt like he was in a hurry and just wanted to get the appointment over with. He was Highly recommended to me, but I most likely will not return to him. Sorry...

August 25, 2014

by the time Dr. Wilson had come into the room, I was already leaving and was not focused. didn't want to wait any longer.

August 17, 2014

I've already recommended Dr. Wilson and the hospital.

July 31, 2014

This Doctor is one of the personable doctors I have ever came in contact with. I would recommend him to anyone that needed his assistance

July 29, 2014

I came in after my husband had a procedure and Dr. Wilson saw me. He walked me into a room and explained the results of my testing quickly. I was very grateful so that I could get my husband home!!

July 23, 2014

Great Dr, Great job

June 27, 2014

Left without relaying all the symptoms. Felt Dr. Wilson came in with an attitude conveying disbelief that my symptoms were sinus related or were real at all. He was never concerned that I find relief. I just gave up trying to give him the full picture.

June 21, 2014

Dr. Wilson is excellent.

June 14, 2014

Very pleased

June 04, 2014

dr Wilson is an excellent care provider and made sure not only myself but my wife also knew everything about what was going on down to the very last detail

May 22, 2014

Follow care was not discussed so I was not pleased with that.

April 26, 2014

Care was great!

April 22, 2014

I felt Dr. Wilson was very professional and personable. He took great care of me, and my wife. Immediately after the surgery he went right to the waiting room and stayed with my wife explaining how everything went until she felt like she had all her questions/concerns cared for.

April 16, 2014

Although I was surprised at first that he didn't delve into the details of my case more at first, I think he was immediately aware that he wouldn't be the one to do the surgery, so he spent more time referring me to someone who could help me.

March 17, 2014

The dr was nice I just didn't feel that he was that concerned about my hearing loss or why I came in. It made me contemplate if I should get a second opinion, I didn't have much confidence in his opinion.

March 17, 2014

Dr. Wilson is a professional in every way; his friendly manner puts one at ease. He is very knowledgable about what he does and I have every confidence in his recommendations. We are managing my disease the best we can. He is terrific

March 10, 2014

Did not see MD. Only recieved injection.

February 14, 2014

My experience was very good.

February 08, 2014

Very efficient.

February 08, 2014

I'm so impressed with Dr Wilson, the South Jordan, Clinic and the Utah Surgical Center. All were so professional and friendly. I didn't think that a nose surgery would be such a positive experience.

February 07, 2014

I was very annoyed that I was not advised about an epi-pen that was ordered and I was to pick up for my allergy shots. Had I not read my paperwork prior to my shots, I would not have known that I even needed it and I would have shown up to my appointment unprepared.

February 06, 2014

As always, Dr. Wilson is AMAZING....his resident was extremely funny as well. Love, Love Love Dr. Wilson!

February 01, 2014

Very good.

January 31, 2014

All very professional and top knotch.

January 25, 2014

They explained the way i understood every little detail

January 24, 2014

I told Dr. Wilson how impressed I was with everything at So. Jordan

January 06, 2014

I felt the nurse was in a rush and not very careful. After leaving the clinic I found that she didn't even remove my stitches to I ended up having a nurse that the Huntsman remove them.

December 23, 2013

I feel that I was not listened to, I feel Dr did not understand root cause of my concern

December 13, 2013

Because there was a delay in my testing the Dr. Came to the room where i was doing PFT's to see me. It was short and very rushed. i do understand, however, felt very rushed and that he assumed I had been given more information at that time than I had. I did not feel I had time to ask many questions if any.

December 11, 2013

Didn't examine me at all. Wouldn't give me advice or ideas until I pushed hard for it. Danced around my questions without answering them so I had to ask multiple times before getting an answer. And even then, the answer wasn't helpful at all.

December 03, 2013

Dr Wilson is fantastic to say the least

November 26, 2013

Dr. Wilson is always amazing....he throughly enjoys his job and here's hoping the second surgery works for quite some time! :)

November 22, 2013

I really like Doctor Wilson. He is very courteous and knowledgeable.

November 04, 2013

Dr Wilson seemed to be very competent. I don't know if Alex was new, but he seemed to struggle with a few things. He was very nice but seemed to be new to this environment.

October 28, 2013

Other than waiting a long time after he sprayed the numbing spray in my nose, Dr. Wilson was fantastic!

October 02, 2013

Dr. Wilson was very professional, very friendly and concerned.

September 03, 2013

Dr was excellent, very pleasant and enjoyable to work with

September 02, 2013

doctor spoke to me like I didn't understand any big words. was very condescending. Made it seem like I had self diagnosed my problems and was completely wrong....

August 05, 2013

I thought Dr. Wilson had looked at the 2 cat scans that I brought with me but upon leaving and finding out the one had never been uploaded I had to wonder why he didn't look at what the endodontist sent with me that he was concerned about. I didn't travel out of state to not have everything considered and gone over. Makes me wonder if I really got a good visit.

August 05, 2013

I loved Dr. Wilson. I have already recommended him to my sister. He was very personable and sensitive to my concerns.

August 04, 2013

good

July 22, 2013

Both the ENT Resident and Dr. Wilson were great, concerned for my comfort, respectful, informative. I did not need any medications, so no explanations were necessary. It was as close to an ideal encounter as one could expect.

July 07, 2013

Dr. Wilson was extremely helpful.

July 02, 2013

I was honestly listened to and then the Nurse looked up the drug I had been given in Europe and called down to the pharmacy to get the USA version and dose approved. I have relief and am thankful that they took the time to hear me out and take care of me.

July 01, 2013

I have already recommended this provider to my friends. I have another appointment out at SoJo and hopefully it will be just as good as this visit at the main hospital.

June 25, 2013

This was a very positive experience. I'm Medical Director of a specialty hospital so I realize the challenges in meeting patient expectations. I was very impressed with my care.

June 24, 2013

I came thinking it was my ear and he said it wasn't. Although I really liked him and he was very friendly I still have the same issues with my ear and neck. Guess next step is Primary care doctor?

June 24, 2013

I've seen 6 different ENTS, Dr. Wilson FINALLY "cured" me!!! :)

June 18, 2013

Had my problem taken care of, I felt much better and was happy w/result.

June 11, 2013

I have already recommended Dr. Wilson to a friend and he was able to correct her hearing problem

June 09, 2013

This visit should have been scheduled with a doctor that could do surgery on me as requested, d/t mult complicated issues & multiple previous surgeries that was explained carefully when my doctors office called for an appt for me.

June 03, 2013

Competent and excellent provider

May 20, 2013

Dr. Wilson apologized for me falling through the cracks of them changing all the allergy testing to the South Jordan clinic and was great in helping me get an appt the next day at South Jordan. The visit with him was very short and he really didn't say anything, guess he was waiting for the testing.

May 20, 2013

the nurse that gave me the allergy test was great and answered all my questions. When Dr. Wilson came in to consult he seemed a little off that day. I was having an asthma attack from the testing and he didn't offer me anything for relief. Just told me to go home and use my abuterol. I lived 40 minutes away. He really didn't tell me what the shots would do or other things I could do to combat the allergies. Though he was nice, it seemed that he was looking to go to the next patient. He came highly recommended to me, so I was a little disappointed.

May 14, 2013

When I was given instructions for the visit I was expecting to have the full spectrum of testing done (1-3hrs) which is what I told. Turned out to be a quick visit with the doctor and someone else would call to schedule the testing which I am still waiting for someone to call. It's been 1 week today

May 13, 2013

first time visit. could not have been more impressed.

May 07, 2013

LOVED this doctor!

May 07, 2013

I could not be happier over this entire experience. From initial greeting to final.. Very Good!!

May 06, 2013

The whole experience was very positive

April 22, 2013

I love Dr Wilson. He listens to my concerns and explains everything very clearly. I also loved the resident, Dr Oakley.

April 22, 2013

happy with outcome

April 01, 2013

good

March 04, 2013

My first encounter was excellent. My return appointment left me confused and I didn't feel that my questions were heard or answered.

February 11, 2013

Excellent care and great cmmunication

January 28, 2013

I felt the care provider was talking down to me because of my age. Also he did not address my concerns about continued stuffy nose.

January 06, 2013

Provider was very thorough and gave me time to ask questions

November 12, 2012

DR WILSON LISTENED TO EVERY CONCERN I HAD AND SUGGESTED DIFFERENT WAYS TO DEAL WITH MY PROBLEM

October 30, 2012

Dr. Wilson is fantastic. Glad he was the one to perform the surgery and the follow-up. He's great to talk with and really cares about his patients.

October 29, 2012

He explained my loss in a professional way I understood without talking down to me. He took the extra time that I needed to understand the remedy and the technology available. It was like talking to a friend that was a Physician that cared personally about the outcome.

October 07, 2012

Wonderful Doctor

October 01, 2012

He answered the questions I had. He was nice and I didn't feel he was rushing through my appointment.

September 24, 2012

I already recommended Dr. Wilson. I have nothing but positive feedback; I have never been so impressed with a medical provider.

September 24, 2012

seemed like was in a hurry

August 27, 2012

Our doctor was very very friendly, had a good repor with my teenage son, and made us feel very comfortable during our visit. He has a great personality and seems that he can work well with patients.

August 08, 2012

Dr Givens and Dr. Wilson worked well together giving me the information I needed for my visit

August 06, 2012

Very pleased with the care that we received.

August 02, 2012

Dr Kevin Wilson was very caring,and informative

July 23, 2012

First time that someone has explained what the cause of the problem was and my options.

July 23, 2012

good

July 09, 2012

Dr Wilson was great all around.

June 26, 2012

After wasting much time with "specialists" within the hospital system, Dr. Wilson has pinpointed one of my health problems that been plaguing me for some time.

June 20, 2012

I was frustrated that the doctor could not help me and referred me to another department, but I am trusting that this is the best treatment for me.

May 17, 2012

Best of care.

May 12, 2012

I like how the provider shared his previous experience working with Native Americans. Helped with my trust in this provider.

April 14, 2012

The doctor was very friendly and explained things well.

April 06, 2012

Dr. Wilson sat next to me in the hallway while Merrill was having his hearing test and asked me a few questions. I was impressed he would take the time to do that!

March 28, 2012

Though it had been 2 months since I had visited, DR. Wilson remembered my situation and had great follow-up...whether he has an amazing memory or took the time to review my file, it was impressive.

March 28, 2012

Dr Wilson addressed all of myy concerns in a very helpful manner

March 21, 2012

Dr Wilson was very good at explaining meds and procedures.

February 25, 2012

Dr Wilson was very helpful and kind. I really appreciated all that he did.

February 15, 2012

Dr Wilson is very good with children made my daughter feel very impotant and like she was cared for. and why she was there. great Job Dr Wilson! this is why I picked you! for the care of my daughter.

February 11, 2012

Obviously knowledgeable doctor, very competent. Rather distant manner; didn't want to pursue some things. I communicated poorly, I think.

January 21, 2012

Dr. Wilson is great! He has really made this whole unfortunate experience very comforting to me. Thank you for all the information.
