As an ophthalmologist, the only thing more important to me than treating eyes is treating patients. My approach to patient care starts with educating a patient about their particular eye disorder, followed by working with the patient to formulate a treatment plan that will best suit them. I am well connected to a large pool of excellent ophthalmology subspecialists at the Eye Institute and never hesitate to refer my patients to other physicians should the appropriate treatment lie outside my scope of practice. My patients' well-being and the best possible care for their eyes are always my top priorities.

I appreciate the excellent care that was provided.
I used to have Dr Wilkes as my Dr years ago, so It was so nice to see him again! Plus he took care Of my husbands cataract surgery. He explained everything so I understood it! Now I'm just waiting for my surgery appointment.
Dr. Wilkes was amazing. If the doctor who performed my cataract surgeries would have been as honest and upfront as Dr. Wilkes, I wouldn't be in the mess I'm in now. I'm very grateful that I had the opportunity to meet with him.
Dr. Wilkes has a very calm and approachable manner. He excels at helping a patient feel comfortable. When discussing the problem, he educated me about my condition and provided information about options and potential outcomes, and advising with confidence his thoughts on the best treatment option. I have left his office each time knowing he was focused on what brought me in and that I have received the best care possible. I also found the technician or nurse who assisted with my eye exam before Dr. Wilkes saw me to be professional, caring, and attuned to my concerns. She took extra time to also provide the best care possible. I left feeling relaxed and appreciative of the care and treatment I received. Thank you.

The knowledge and professionalism of which Dr. Wilkes conducts his office and Treats 's patients is something that should be used as an example. The people he has surrounding him support him and each other in an extraordinary way under extraordinary circumstances because they are so highly sought after their schedules are usually pretty congested and handle this with again, professionalism and grace I was thankfully diagnosed with the difficult issue and was forwarded to another physician as well in the group and together I have always had excellent care.
