Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Wilson is very sociable and knowledgeable of his medical field. He is straight forward, honest and direct with me about my medical conditions and questions. He makes me feel like my health is very important to him whenever he entered the office. He is kind and professional at all times. The most important aspect of his work is that he listens to me and let me finish my thoughts before he responds. I am extremely happy and satisfied with Dr. Wilson and his very friendly staff. I hIghly recommend Dr. Wilson.
Dr. Wilson is awesome. He is patient and has a great personality. He is thorough and always makes me feel like my concerns are heard. I have begun to feel better than I have in the past two years thanks to him and his expertise!
The visit to Dr. Wilson went very well
It was a pleasant quick visit.
It was a routine visit. Dr. Wilson was cordial and ask how I was doing? He discussed previous tests that were done and appointments that I had with other doctors. He gave me the necessary referrals and vaccinations that I requested. We discussed any health concerns I had.
Very good and informative.
I had the first appointment of the day, but the front desk clerk checked me in to a room ONE HOUR after I arrived. As a new patient, I arrived 15 min early to fill out anticipated paperwork. 30 minutes after I arrived, I finally got the paperwork, which I completed in 5 minutes. Then I sat another 20min until I got in a room. Then I sat in a room for another 20min to be seen. I'm under 30 years old with no complaints, just wanted labs every few years to make sure things are still ticking appropriately. I'm also a physician. The support staff was awful. Inexcusable.
Good visit professional friendly no wait time
I no longer am seeing Dr. Wilson. After a couple appointments, the wait times were too unpredictable. I would see him around the same time each day, one day I would be seen right away, the next time I would have to wait 2 hours. Something doesn't seem right with the scheduling by the reception staff. It's so easy to get an appointment in the near future, but it seems like that may be because they are double/triple/however-many booking him which leads to very long wait times.
Dr. Wilson and his staff were welcoming, personable and professional. Medical documents were minimized upon my arrival, due to pre-registering on-line with ZocDoc. The doctors manner was friendly, he listened and explained medical information clearly and without hesitation. I did not feel rushed in his facility as I have at the major medical facility I used regularly. I feel I have found a physician to call 'my doctor' and a facility more accessible for my needs.
The receptionist was nice and friendly. My appointment was at 9am---the same time as 3-4 other people. Dr. Wilson didn't come into the office until 9:20. I was seen around 9:45. He had great bedside manner and the appointment did not feel rushed. I would recommend him, but definitely have a book to read while you wait.
I was pleasantly surprised to be called 5 minutes after I walked in the office. Doctor Wilson asked pertinent questions to obtain my medical history. I did not have to fill out a medical form in the waiting room. I have never experienced this level of patient service before. Sandra H.
Dr. Wilson was very patient and willing to answer all of my add-on questions. He does everything himself.
Dr. Wilson and his staff are extremely personable. He has been my family doctor for 10 years. Dr. Wilson is very thorough and takes time to hear concerns.
While afternoon appts sometimes result in long wait times, Dr Wilson takes ample time with his patience during visits. I never feel rushed,
Professional staff; Dr. Wilson was very empathetic and listened intently to my issues; easy to talk to; great bedside manner

Dr Wilson, is a qualified intelligent professional in his field. He listens to his patients. Which makes me comfortable. I would refer him instantly. We love you Doc...
Dr. Wilson is professional. He had read my issue and was prepared to treat it quickly. He answered all of my questions to my satisfaction, completed my prescription, and I was out of his office in no time. I was quite satisfied with my visit.
Dr Wilson is very professional, genuinely concerned about his patients and he has excellent bedside manner.
I like Dr Wilson. He's polite and actually listens. I Recommend him definitely.
He is amazing! great Doctor
I was seen in a timely manner. The office was efficient and kind.
Dr. Wilson is a warm, caring, personable and knowledgeagble physician. He is the best male doctor I've ever seen in the Washington, DC area. I'm so glad I found him on ZocDoc (which I'd never heard of before). I will highly reccomend Dr. Wilson to my friends! Thank you Dr. Wilson and thank you ZocDoc.
The doctor is very competent and is a good listener. His office staff do not follow up, close the office without warning and cancel appointments with no notice. I don't get the impression they care very much for the patient's wellbeing.
Dr. Wilson was very kind and immediately like-able. He didn't seem rushed or busy... he asked me lots of questions and listened carefully to me when I spoke. He also seemed very thorough in ordering my labs. I thought it was almost funny that he would hold his breath until his face turned red when he was inspecting my eyes and mouth, but i realized that he was just going above and beyond to ensure we weren't sharing germs unnecessarily. His practice is courteous and thoughtful. I'm looking forward to my second visit.
I had a great experience at the office of Dr. Wilson. All the staffs were kind, courteous, and patient.
It was very insightful and it was apparent he was interested in me getting better.
This was my first visit, I was very pleased with the medical staff and absolutely impressed with Dr. Wilson. Excellent bedside manner, he truly took the time to listen to you and explain things to you. Looking forward to my next visit, I decided to keep him as my Primary Care Physician. RMcWilliams
Would reccomend to all my family and friends
Wasn't sure if it's him or his office that's can't complete prescriptions.
Excellent doctor and kind staff. He saw me right away and was very thorough and patient, making sure to answer all of my questions. I highly recommend Dr. Wilson!
I think Dr. Richard Wilson, Jr was absolutely wonderful... very pleasant with an awesome bedside manner.
An excellent experience. He listened and heard what I had to say because there is surely a difference. His staff was also very professional and courteous.
The wait was a bit long, but perhaps it was just that day. Regardless, seeing Dr. Wilson was worth the wait. He truly knows his field, listens to you, and treats you as a person with an issue, not just a piece of meat on a conveyor belt as I have had the misfortune to experience with other doctors. I highly recommend Dr. Wilson!
Dr. Richard seems very knowlegable and expressed concerned of issues. I felt very confortable and relieved.
It was a good visit. He was professional and pleasant. Will consider him for my primary doctor.
He was great very professional and concerned about your issues. I'm glad i saw him
Dr Wilson and his staff were kind, patient and caring.
The appointment was actually for my mom but she says she really liked her first visit with him and she's hopeful again. He asked questions and he listened.
As a new patient, but in good health, I wish that he would have spent more time at least taking more vitals, but maybe he felt what he did was OK considering my health.
This visit was very favorable. Dr. Wilson is willing to listen to the patient's concerns.
Dr. Wilson was very attentive and responsive to my needs and concerns. Very informative of my experience and condition.
Took family member to see Dr. Wilson and was a pleasant experience.
