I have been a patient for over 20 years, in that time I have referred numerous folks to Dr. Hylwa with complete confidence. She is thorough, caring and receptive to the needs of her patients. She listens and takes the time to inform and guide, make recommendations and suggestions.

Going to Dr. Hylwa is like going to how a doctor used to be. She'll take as long with you as you need. If you need a hug, you'll get a hug. If you need bracing encouragement, she'll be there for you that way. If you need to talk something out, she will talk with you as long as you need. Hour-long appointments are not uncommon! She carefully reviews all of your results with you, telling you what it all means, so you're not in the dark about your own medical care.
