I am very particular about any doctor. I do lots research. Dr.Hilgenhurst is up to date on lots of the new break. He did my Spinal cord stimulator. Tonya the nurse practioner has the exact same as the doctor. If she doesn't know something she will find out the answer. They make a great team. The office staff is a little nosey they ask your name and address and telephone number so the whole waiting room can hear. It could be dangerous.

Doctors and Physicians Assistants are compassionate and kind. The office staff are better now than when I first started coming. The office Manager (the man) is nice.
