Zero bedside manner. Complete and total jerk. Asked inappropriate questions. Does not listen to anything, he asked same questions 3 to 4 times and still didnt know the answers. Treated us a though we are drug addicts. I've been in the medical field for over 20 years and never seen a doctor with such arrogance. Does not care one bit about patients or helping anyone. We may complain the the medical board.

Total jerk. Terrible attitude. Treated me like a criminal/liar at first visit. ACMC should offer us better! I tried to give ZERO STARS but it won’t let me.

Dr. Hill is very friendly and knowledgeable. He always shows compassion and concern when treating me. My pain level has been under control since beginning treatment with him. I am able to function and have quality of life. I would highly recommend him.

I would highly recommend Dr. Hill for pain management. He was very helpful, listened to me and answered my questions without being in a hurry at all. We did agree on treatment and he even introduced me to another physician who could probably help me with something that Dr. Hill could not address. His office staff and nurses are all very kind and helpful. I would not think twice about going back to him for help.

DO NOT GO TO THIS DOCTOR!! I shattered my femur in 2004 I had 5 surgeries in a year, I was on pain meds for 3 years, In 2007 I took myself off all my pain meds ALL ON MY OWN WITH NO DRUG REHAB. I did not take any for around 10 years but Now that I am older I can not tolerate the pain in my bad leg ..it has gotten worst as I age...NOT EVERYONE IS A DRUG ADDICT.... THIS GUY TREATS YOU LIKE A DRUG ADDICT! He wanted to stick a needle in my knee for a temp few hour fix. Going to different doctor!

He has to be the most arrogant Dr. I have ever been to.. While I was laying on the table for him to administer my shot I overheard him tell his nurse that I looked like a whale laying there. Yes I am over weight but his bedside manner is trash. Has he helped me with my pain.. no... and not my self esteem either.. DO NOT GO TO THIS MAN... He has extreme short man syndrome !!!

A. Believes that Fibromyalgia is a psychological disorder and should be treated by a psychologist. While I respect his right to hold his own medical opinions, I prefer that my doctors understand and accept modern medical classifications regardless of what they they think the treatment should be. B. Laughed at me when I explained that my condition caused pain in my genitals. This is literally the most disrespectful and embarrassing experience I've ever had with a doctor. Just a complete jerk.

I appreciate what a PAIN being PM doctor must be like during this opiate epidemic. But you have to treat each patient based on Thier individual circumstances. I was treated like garbage. I did not ask for narcotics. But I was treated like absolute garbage. Didn't listen to a single concern. No wonder he has the lowest ratings I've ever seen. PS his staff was Amazing and kind which just made his horrible apathy even more blindsiding.
