What People Say About Dr. James Hill, MD

My family and I have been seeing Dr. Hill for almost 20 years. He is by far, the absolute greatest orthopedic doctor/surgeon we have ever known and will probably ever know. His knowledge is immeasurable, his skill is unbelievable, and he also has a great sense of humor. He has performed 1 surgery (so far) on me, 2 on my dad, and one on my mom. I tell everyone that will listen about Dr. Hill. It will be a devastatingly sad day when he retires.

Dr. Hill did a total shoulder replacement on me in July 2018. He answered all my questions before and after surgery and has released me after my 6th month check up as I have fully recovered. I would and have recommended him to others.

I highly recommend Dr. James Hill. He performed surgery on my shoulder in 2007 and in 2018 he performed an elbow replacement. I can do things with my shoulder and my elbow that I was never able to do before. I trust him. Dr. Hill is knowledgeable, kind and I like the way he explains everything thoroughly. I had high pain and now I don't. Dr. James Hill is one of my heroes.

Dr. Hill is always so kind. Always a smile on his face. Everyone is amazed at my quick recovery from shoulder replacement surgery in December 2017. Dr. Hill is very easy to talk to, listens intently to any concerns, and really cares about his patients.

Dr. Hill replaced my hip a year ago. He was very thorough prior to the surgery, and in any follow-ups needed. He is always ready to answer questions, and takes whatever time is needed to do so. The surgery itself was just as he explained; no surprises. I would highly recommend him for any orthopedic surgery.

Dr Hill was attentive to my needs and answered all my questions. He gave me different options on solving my shoulder problem. He operated on my shoulder,rotator cuff. I had no problems and he was there for me when I had questions after my surgery and through the healing process. I would recommend him to my family and friends.

Very thorough and to the point. Told me I needed surgery the first time I saw him. Since I was apprehensive, I waited 4 months. I wish I would have done it when he 1st recommended it. Scheduling was quick, surgery was quick,and recovery was quick. Will definitely go back if I need any orthopedic medical assistance again.

Doctor Hill performed shoulder replacement surgery on my severely arthritic right shoulder in August of 2016. I could not be happier with the level of care received or the outcome. His quiet confidence and bedside manor was very reassuring and the surgery has been a complete success. I recommend Dr. Hill to anyone who is seeking excellent orthopedic care.

Dr. Hill is a great surgeon. He repaired my shoulder and was back to normal in no time. He's always willing to listen and explains things very well. I feel completely comfortable in his hands.

Had full replacement hip surgery three months ago & now I have zero pain! Dr. Hill explained everything thoroughly, & was always very upbeat & positive. It's great to be able to do normal things now without any pain. Also, the ladies in the office are always very nice which is a plus.

After putting off my shoulder surgery for a long time I finally couldn't take the pain anymore. I was very nervous about having surgery. Dr. Hill was wonderful. He explained the procedure for my complete shoulder replacement and answered every question I had in detail. I am thrilled with the outcome and pain was gone almost immediately. I will have the other shoulder done soon since it is just as bad. I can't say enough about this excellent, caring doctor.

Dr. Hill is not a compassionate doctor. His answer for a few of my questions was "My crystal ball is not working". Wait time for usually in excess of one hour.

Dr Hill has repaired both torn rotator cuffs for me. He is an excellent surgeon who has always answered my questions, explained the procedures and made me feel like I mattered to him before,during and after the surgery. I have been satisfied with the entire office staff and would highly recommend him to anyone in need of shoulder surgery

I recently had full shoulder replacement due to severe arthritis pain. Dr. Hill fully explained the procedure, as well as, the recovery. My experience has been phenomenal! Very little post surgical pain, a great experience with PT rehab and close to 100% flexibility recovery. I would, without hesitation, recommend Dr. Hill for this procedure.

Gail B, I had rotator cuff surgery on May 1, 2016. Dr. Hill operated on my should for three hours and I was in P.T. two days later. I had very little pain and continued my P.T.till mid July. I was ahead of my P.T. and now have full motion of my right arm. Dr. Hill explained every step of the procedure along with answering all my questions. I saw him on a regular bases. I would highly recommend him to family and friends. He is a very caring person who wants to see a full recovery for his pat

The Absolute BEST!!! I had shoulder replacement surgery in April and rehab was a pleasant surprise. All went well and I have full range of motion and all pain is erased. It's an absolute pleasure to move about without pain. I will be scheduling another shoulder replacement in January and look forward to yet another successful experience. Dr. Hill is 'THE SHOULDER DOCTOR!" to consider.
