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....more

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.
