Condescending
This doctor told me I was too educated for the genetic disease I have. He told me he knew he didn't know everything because he had checked twice. Condescending, unprofessional and a real smart A. Offered no insight or resolution. Recommended an MRI for a diagnosis for abdominal adhesions. Adhesions do not appear in imaging! He also told me unless adhesions are causing an obstruction, they are not painful. I waited 45 minutes in a Telehealth site to only be called and put on hold over 20 additional minutes. If negative stars were an option I would give -5.

Dr. Hill repaired my lower abdominal hernia in early December 2021. I have waited a month to leave my review so I could be confident in the outcome. I Chose Dr. Hill based on his online photo, his professional resume and the reviews that had been left online relating to his professional work. After meeting with him, I felt I had made a good choice. Now, two months after that initial meeting I remain pleased with my choice. Dr. Hill was professional and friendly. He was willing to answer all my questions and his answers inspired confidence in his capabilities. My surgery went well. My recovery was swift and without complications. I was also well cared for in the same day surgical department at Utah Valley Hospital. I was particularly impressed with the nursing staff. During my hospital visit, I was cared for by four different nurses. They were all pleasant, professional and kind. I believe that speaks well of the hiring and training practices at the hospital.

Dr. Hill removed my gallbladder two weeks ago. He is a very knowledgeable and skilled surgeon. He was so nice and took the time to answer all of my questions at the pre-op visit. He was just as great post-op. I highly recommend Dr. Hill.

Working with Dr. Hill was a pleasure. He was positive and attentive to any questions I had. He explained results of my surgery in my post-op appointment, and even went through diagnostic CT imaging with me in regards to a question I had unrelated to my surgery. He gave suggestions and options of things that could I could consider without being pushy. I was happy about the experience I had.

My experience was great! Nobody wants to have surgery but when it’s necessary you just got to do it. I for one don’t like being in the hospital or doctors but I don’t like being in the doctors office or hospital even if I need it. But it was a great experience. Quick and very well explained before hand about what to expect. Thanks Dr. Hill will be back if I ever need anything else fixed.

Dr Hill reached out to me after my gallbladder landed me in the ER. He took my pain seriously when other doctors couldn't even get me on their schedule. He knew my pain was serious and he made sure I was taken care of. He is incredibly smart, and gives you all the information you need prior to surgery. Being my first surgery I was nervous but everything went flawlessly. Hands down I recommend him.

Dr. Hill was wonderful. He took the time to go over my options and allowed me to ask questions. He got me scheduled for surgery so much faster than I expected and our interactions on surgery day were calm and helpful. The follow up visit was positive and left me full of confidence for quick healing. I would definitely recommend him for a general surgeon.
