After several office visits with questions and concerns knowing I needed hip surgery, Dr. Hill was very patient with me. He took his time answering all my questions. He never hurried an office visit, made me feel very confident to go through with the surgery.
Dr. Hill gave me my life back. Hardly had any pain during and after my hip surgery. Very caring and compassionate doctor who listens to you. Thank you Dr. Hill!
By the time I met with Dr. Hill, I already felt so welcome and at ease. His mannerism is very kind and he is very thorough; he let me know what to expect, what the pros and cons were. My total hip replacement surgery went very well without any problems
