I am a medical professional that chose Dr as my primary physician. He is confidential and a consummate professional at all times. I have seen him for years and when I see him in the hospital he always ask about my family too. When I had to move my mother closer to me, I also selected him as her primary physician. He is knowledgeable and able to explain, in everyday language, the reason behind his concerns and the course of treatment he recommends for my mother, so that she could understand.

Dr. Hoelscher is the prime example of a physician who cares about his patients with a competent mind and compassionate heart. He knows his patients by name and treats them like old friends. My family and I can't say enough good about how intelligent and efficient, yet personable and patient he is every time we have an appointment.

Our family has been with Dr. John Hoelscher for decades. He is the best Family Doctor we have ever had I our lives-we are senior citizens. Even though Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois PPO Insurance has made our great Doctor and ALton Memorial out of network-our home is in Godfrey-we still go to Dr. John Hoelscher and pay the out of network cost. The peace of mind obtained by going to a wonderful Doctor is worth every penny. FareweLL, Alicia and Clay Davis
