There are better plastic surgeons. My nose looks terrible. He does not give the full details on what he plans on doing, and has disrespect for his patients when he messes up.

Dr. Peter Hilger dealt with my situation with professionalism, true concern for my condition, detailed information regarding my procedure, and a touch of humor that made the entire process more pleasant. He was extremely thorough when explaining what he saw to be the issue and how he intended to correct it. He did a fantastic job answering any questions I had. He advocated for me when my insurance company did not want to cover my procedure. He is definitely the best doctor I have ever had to deal with and I would, without hesitation, highly recommend him to anyone in need of any type of plastic surgery. Thank you, Dr. Hilger!

They mailed me digital images from the consultation. That’s all I should’ve needed to know, my nose is ruined forever.

I have been going to Dr. Hilger for over 15 years. I am treated so well-from scheduling me as soon as possible to answering questions with patience, and caring for me before, during and after a procedure, they treat me like family! Dr. Hilger is an amazing surgeon with a wonderful staff. I highly recommend them.

After many years of wanting rhinoplasty, I stared asking around for recommendations for a surgeon. It came very apparent that Dr. Hilger was the one. I could not be more happy with the results! I’m only four months post surgery and love my nose. I knew I was in good hands the whole time, the entire staff is amazing! I was out and about doing normal activities at one week. I would do it again in a heart beat.

Dr. Hilger and everyone I came in contact with in his office and the surgery center were extremely knowledgeable and compassionate. Dr. Hilger's excellent expertise were evident in the meetings we had prior to my procedure but most importantly the results from my cosmetic procedure were better than what I could possibly imagine. His work gave natural & youthful results.

Dr. Hilger scheduled my son on a weekend in order to fit him in his schedule. He and his excellent team repaired my son's eye socket, nose, and cheek after a traumatic injury. He is compassionate, thorough, and explained every procedure in complete detail. He reviewed the CT scan with us and answered every question and concern. He is a miracle worker!
