I can not say enough about Dr.Jesse Wild and his entire team. Through the entire process from my first appointment through the knee replacement surgery they made me feel that I was in competent hands. I had surgery on Wednesday in the PM.

Lisa M., Bisbee

After experiencing severe pain for over a year (and seeing several doctors, chiropractors, and an acupuncturist) I was referred to Dr. Jesse Wild. My only regret is that I didn’t find him sooner! After one visit with him it was clear I needed a total hip replacement. At the age of 49, not something I was expecting! Six months later...
