Dr. Wilborn was my dermatologist for many years. I was surfing the Internet to look for his hair products for my friend and saw the article about his passing... May he rest in peace which I know he is...

To the family of Dr. Wilborn may our LORD and SAVIOR grant you peace and precious memories in the days to come. I found out about his passing this morning and remember our last conversation. I asked him when was he going to retire and responded probably never. He was the best dermatologist and gifted with the anointing of skin care and medicine. Thank you GOD for sharing him and may his family be forever blessed.
July 31, 2013
Wow. What a great Dermatologist. I was saddened to hear of this loss. My heart goes out to the family. I met Dr. Wilborn over 29 years ago as he was my mother's dermatologist. My Mom introduced him to me and be become my dermatologist also. I was so proud to have a black dermatologist He was a great person, really concerned about your skin I also went to see him while he was in Decatur office. He never waivered from being the "peoples" doctor. Thank you family for sharing him with the rest of the world. He will be missed. - His patient forever, Youngestine Wood (Ellenwood, Georgia)

I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Welborn in 2008 for a skin problem I was having. He examined the areas as with a fine tooth comb. I was impressed.I even won a gift at their gala that year. Funny, I have an appointment with his office this coming Monday (7-15-13). I was looking forward to seeing him again. But This picture will have to do. He is missed by many. Sincerely, Maggie Mosley-Morehouse School of Medicine

Words will never truly express how I feel about the passing of Dr. Wilborn; he was not only the best dermatologist but a kind person. It was always a pleasure, even with illness, to see him and know that he could make the problem go away - then lecture you about life. Glad to know his DPL products are still available; will always remember him.
June 20, 2013
Words cannot express how I feel about loosing such a wonderful person. He was not only a phenomenal doctor, but a very caring person. He did not only care about the well being of you as his patient, but he always ask about my mom and the rest of the family. Eternal Rest grant onto his soul oh Lord.. I will never forget all your words of encouragement..Rest In Peace Dr.Wilborn!

May 28, 2013
I have been going to Dr. Wilburn off and on since 1997. I traveled all the way from North Carolina as there were no African American Dermatologists really at that time and simply because he was the best. I just visited the office on April 25th and pranced in thinking I had an appointment with him. To my surprise he was on a leave due to illness. I had n't seen him in a couple of years and was saddened and was hoping and praying they still had the recipe for my potion he'd give me to make me beautiful. My sister just called and asked me to google him because someone told her of his death. My heart sank when it popped up. We love you Dr. Wilborn and your family. You'll Never be forgotten. N. Hicks

I ask when will he be back, and was told uncertain at this time. I said this because I wanted the best and that is may he rest in pest Deborah B Walker
May 05, 2013
Dr. Wilborn was not only the best dermatologist that I ever had he was one of the best black male role models that I have ever met. He treated my mother, Ruth Ann, and myself for years. We traveled from North Carolina to receive treatment from this special man. Our psoriasis did not stand a chance against Dr Wilborn's treatment. My deepest sympathy goes out to the family. Thank you for sharing this special doctor with all of us. RIP Dr. Wilborn.
May 05, 2013
Gosh, it's so hard to believe that I am writing this. It was just weeks ago that I was bugging the medical staff day in and out with my calls to inquire when Dr. Wilborn was coming back to work. After being a patient of his since middle school (i.e 25 yrs), he was the only doctor that really knew how to treat my skin maladies. Anytime others in my family had skin issues, Dr. Wilborn was the household name called for us to make an appt to run to see. I can't say that about any other Dr working in the medical field, for he truly was a "family Doctor" for several generations of my family. What a gifted man we have lost. It's unbelievable how the passage of time renders us helpless to the cycle of life. Job well done Dr. Wilborn. Job well done... We will meet you once again when our chores are done here. May God bless you because God surely blessed us with you! Love, M. Avery
May 05, 2013
With deepest sympathy to the Wilborn family during your time of grief...God is for you a refuge and strength, A help that is there to be found during difficult times...May God provide you with peace and comfort to endure the days ahead...(Psalm 62:8).

Dr. Wilborn was my family's dermatologist for over 20 years. He treated my mother for her extreme eczema. He also treated my siblings faithfully.He could diagnose a skin problem just by looking. His expertise was always on point. I appreciate all that he did for us through the years. I pray that his family will find peace and comfort during this time. God bless you, Dr. Wilburn and May you rest in paradise.
May 04, 2013
Dr. Wilborn was the best dermatologist in Atlanta hands down. I remember that at my very first visit to Dr. Wilborn he gave me a hug and assured me that despite what I thought, I was beautiful and that he would clear the acne AND marks in no time and they will never come back. And so he did. He was so warm and grandfatherly. My deepest condolences to the Wilborn family. We have lost a great doctor, but you have lost a husband, father, brother, grandfather and friend. May you all focus on the great memories and times together as well as the hope that God provides for a resurrection to a paradise earth.
May 03, 2013
I would like to express our deepest sympathy to the Wilborn Family. I have been a patient of Dr. Wilborn for years, and I remember he would say, your face is looking great, but I did not think so, I would always say Dr. Wilborn I need my skin to look beautiful. He would just give a slight smile. A fantastic person. He will be missed.

To: The Wilborn Family,

I would like to express my deepest sympathy to the family. I met Dr. Wilborn, many years ago when I was in college. He was always so humorous. I can recall a time that I called Dr. Wilborn and told him that I had broken out in hives. When I arrived at Dr. Wilborn's office, he knew right then, my problem. I was allergic to wool. I had on a navy long military coat, the coat was gorgeous. He prescribed me some hydrocortisone and I was fine.I will never, ever, forget Dr. Wilborn, he will be missed .
