Jul 14, 2021
Dr. Wilder was very good. He was courteous and concerned about my issues and explained everything easily and answered all my questions. He is the best gyno I have been to since my first one. I will continue to be his patient.
Jul 14, 2021
They were the only ones to actually listen and express concern about my birth control and were sympathetic about all my problems
Jul 14, 2021
While my appointment was at 9:30 and I showed up an hour early to do paper work and left closer to 12, I am not disappointed. Dr. Wilders bedside manner more than made up for it and he did an amazing job. It would have been nice to have been informed about delays but being in the medical field I understand it's not always possible and his bedside manner was the best I've ever seen
Jul 14, 2021
My mom made the appointment and explained that I was doing my clinicals in town and that if I could be seen after hours that would be best but it was explained that after hours are for emergency and it wasn't an emergency. My original appt was for Friday but dr. Wilder was having surgery and I needed a sooner appt anyway so my appt was moved up. They were very good about working with my schedule and explaining things more than the referring physician was
Jul 12, 2021
I really appreciate Dr Wilder's professionalism in explaining the diagnosis and options available to me. He was most kind and compassionate. I appreciate that in a dr. Thank you!

Jun 28, 2021
office staff was so kind and helpful!
Jun 23, 2021
long wait time but I was warned since they were fitting me into schedule so it was acceptable to me
Jun 18, 2021

May 28, 2021
I don't mind the wait. sometimes we have to wait to see the best doctors
May 27, 2021
Dr Wilder is an incredible doctor and worth waiting for. He is thorough and takes the time with each patient.
May 27, 2021
Dr. Wilder dismissed my concerns about other patients medical history being on my chart. There was a lot of details that were NOT mine.
May 27, 2021
people entered and exited the exam room during my exam twice. I expected some level of privacy.
May 22, 2021
All good experience.
May 22, 2021
I have no hesitance to recommend Dr. Wilder. I'm blessed to have him as my doctor.
May 22, 2021
I never mind waiting bc of the quality of care.
May 22, 2021
Dr. Wilder has great bedside manner and follows up on concerns.
May 22, 2021
The staff and nurses are always nice.
May 19, 2021
amazing and great staff! and dr wilder is always a bonus with his knowledge and expertise! always a greatexperience even though your facing difficult health issues.
May 16, 2021
Dr. Wilder interacted well with me. He is thoughtful, considerate and keeps the conversation going to ease the visit.
May 16, 2021
They were all positive experiences.
May 15, 2021
Dr. Wilder's office staff were very nice but they went way overboard on the masking, temperature checking, etc.
May 14, 2021
EXCEPT for the long wait times.....I trust And recommend Dr. Wilder.
May 14, 2021
My appointment was at 12:45, I arrived at 12:35. I waited in the waiting room til 1:20. Then was called back for vitals . Then was back in the waiting room for ten minutes. I was put in a exam room at 1:30 , half u dressed and had to stay there for another 45 minutes. I was very frustrated, at this point. I would rather not be in the exam room that long , and NO ONE a looked in on me or gave me any updates. The Dr. finally came in and Spent ten minutes with me. And I didn't leave til 2:20. My time is worth something too, and I had other places to be. This was the second time this has happened. The first time this long wait time happened was on my first visit after surgery in October 2020. Sure hope something gets done about the scheduling here.
May 2, 2021
Super friendly staff and much quicker than expected since they squeezed me in.
May 2, 2021
Would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Wilder to anyone who needed his expertise.
May 2, 2021
I have been pleased with both the competence and service in the entire experience.
May 2, 2021
Already commented earlier. She is exemplary.
May 2, 2021
Although I have had to wait a long time for service, Dr. Wilder is a surgeon who cannot always manage time as the office due to his responsibilities at the hospital. I would rather have wait time than to have him not respond to the needs of a patient in surgery.
May 2, 2021
I am always treated with courtesy and respect. Dr. Wilder's nurse, Michelle, is a treasure. She is caring, efficient and puts the patient as ease in difficult situations. She as responded to me by phone when the need has arisen.

Dr Wilder and his staff are all very efficient and kind! Years ago we had to wait for a very long time but the last couple of years I have very fast in and out time! I like him and his staff a lot!
Apr 8, 2021
However, I do not like having a practicing doctor in the room with me during my exam. I felt like I was at MD Anderson which always has a student with every doctor.
Apr 8, 2021
Dr. Wilder has been my doctor for 11 years. He actually saved my life and I will forever be grateful. Dr. Wilder takes time to listen to his patients and eases their fear.
Apr 8, 2021
Michelle is the best! Always calls you by your name and shows love and concern for each of her patients.
Apr 8, 2021
I waited 1 hour and 45 minutes which was better then usual. I understand emergency situations so waiting doesn't bother me especially when you know your seeing Dr. Wilder who is a top of the line doctor.
Apr 8, 2021
The front desk receptionist lwas very kind and personable. I was very uncomfortable being asked covid questions and everyone having to wear a mask.
Apr 5, 2021
