Dr. John Wild has performed two surgeries on me over the last few years. I have found him a very patient, compassionate, doctor and have been pleased with the outcome of the knee and hip on each occasion. Found the staff at TMC kind and knowledgeable. He and the staff there know how to deal with senior citizens. -Dolores, Tucson

I am not one to take shots and I have to honestly say, from getting the spinal tap to drawing blood, the experience was great. Didn't feel a thing!
