I was referred here by my PCP 2 yrs ago. Due to a paperwork glitch, it took 4 months to get in to see Dr. Hilgenhurst. When he found out what had happened, he apologized and worked very hard to fix the problem and earn my trust. I am glad I stuck with the process and waited instead of finding a different doctor, because I couldn't be happier. I drive in 2 hours from Decaturville, Tn. just to see Ms. Pamela and Dr. Hilgenhurst. I love coming to Southern Hills to see them both.
