Dr. Hillsley had been my Cardiologist for several years and this visit like previous visits was excellent. He knows and understands cardiology, keeps up to date, explains my condition and treatment. He is always willing to listen to my concerns and discuss them. He will continue to be my Cardiologist.

Dr. Hillsley has become my primary heart doctor. He takes time to discuss all procedures/treatments throughly. He is forthright with pluses as well as any negatives. He has Helped me to get a handle on my Afib and other concerns with final decisions up to me. I’m very comfortable with his expertise and happy that he will recommend another specialist if he feels it is necessary. The office staff are all very pleasant and efficient. You will feel comfortable when you have an appointment.

Edie Cuttler – Jun 16, 2021
Arriving at Saint Agnes on June 2nd, I felt no anxiety. I knew Dr. Hillsley from a previous surgery and I knew he would take care of me. He entered my cubicle with a smile on his face and a soft, reassuring voice. After his introduction, he explained my procedure to me. He explained who the team was that would be assisting him in my surgery. Dr. Hillsley is a GREAT doctor. I would recommend him to anyone I know with a cardiac issue and to people who may know others with cardiac issues especially if they are a family member. Dr. Hillsley, the surgical team who assisted in my surgery and the nurses who prepped me for my surgery are professional, caring, kind and attentive to their patients, namely me. Right now I'm sitting here smiling as I think about my new Defibrillator. Thank you Dr Hillsley. You are a great surgeon. YOU ARE GREAT AT WHAT YOU DO. Thank you Saint Agnes for hiring a great group of staff members. They are the HEART OF THE COMMUNITY. Sincerely, Sherry Rucker
