he was pleasant at the first visit..set up a procedure to be done for a family member....HOWEVER, he did not, in detail, explain the procedure fully to us...when we went for a follow up...and we voiced our concern re the explicit details..he became very rude and arrogant and had no regiment set up for the person...told us to do whatever works..point blank!! we will never refer him to anyone and will never make an appt to see him again!!!

On January 26, 2016, Dr. Hill performed gastric sleeve surgery and fixed a hernia. I have since lost 85 pounds and have my life back. Dr. Hill, his staff and the entire bariatric center are top notch and I highly recommend them. I have friends and colleagues who also had gastric surgery by Dr. Hill and all of them have nothing but glowing things to say.

He is like a walking bubble from a ginger ale bottle! Called me beautiful when I never looked so horrid in my entire life!.....Gall bladder was a disaster and I never was in such pain and I was in surgery about 2 hours after meeting him. I am so grateful.
