Physician Assistant to Dr. Brian Hill:
- Had a pretty nasty full break to my clavicle and was referred to Dr. Hill by a long time friend of my parents and fellow orthopedic surgeon because in his words "Dr. Hill does this all day". Dr. Hill not only provided a really clear explanation of my injury that helped me understand the need for surgery but also took the time to answer my questions with clarity and has been with me every step of the way post-op. I highly recommend Dr. Hill.
- I am so happy that I found Dr. Hill. He explained what is wrong with my shoulder, drawing pictures to help me understand exactly. He explained my options for dealing with the problem & advised what he felt was the best course of action & why. He answered all my questions & I never felt rushed. I feel confident that I’m being well taken care of.
