Finally I got help and an understanding about my concern for a diagnosis for my knee. I am a professional ballroom dancer and my knee injury really concerns me. The first doctor who was two hours late several months ago looked at an X-ray and told me I had mild arthritis. I knew that was not the problem. Dr Wilson was thorough and understood my need for getting my knee properly diagnosed. In fairness to the first doctor, she was severely overbooked and overworked.
