Metro Atlanta Urology and Pelvic Health Center Reviews
I met Dr. Wilson thru a referral before a prolapsed uterus that was causing me to have difficulty passing my urine. She treated me like I was family. She told me what my options were and made sure that I understood. Covid lockdowns pulled the plug on my plans and Dr. Wilson moved her practice north out of Atlanta. It took me several months to find her after Covid restrictions were lifted. She was the doctor that I trusted my body and my life with. She is warm, caring. professional individual, who just happens to be the best doctor for the job. I highly recommend her for anyone who needs help with GYN and Urology issues. She is wonderful!
Dr. Wilson is amazing great wonderful doctor she will pay attention all the your concerns and words She’s care about her patients Actually all the Georgia Urology doctors are great doctors and staff members are very friendly and helpful
