Patient Comments (5)
in Laguna Hills, CA |
I see Doc Hill since 1991. He took me as his patient due to the severity of my glaucoma when he was working on a project at UCI. I do have a great amount of respect for him as a doctor and as a human being for saving me and helping all his patients no matter where or how. His wife and office staff are huge asset for his work and success. Thank you Doc!

I had eye laser surgery due to glaucoma . It was fast and painless

Dr. Hill is extremely patient and explains everything to you. He has great bedside manners. I have been going there for over 10 years and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a Glaucoma specialist. Just remember that he is allergic to perfume, so don't wear any to his office. If you do, they will reschedule your appointment for you.

I've been seeing him for a few years now, he did a surgery to reduce pressure in my left eye. Overall a good doctor, his staff does tend to over book though so longish wait times on a busy day.
