Dr. Hilgers is a supportive doctor, providing with me plenty of information to make a decission that will provide me with the best possible options to insure a positive outcome. It is a 'GOOD' thing that the clinic has physicians like Dr. Hilgers treating "me" the "patient" (patron) like a person RATHER than a "medicial record number" as the "Adminstration" of the clinic does.

I feel Dr. Hilgers was the key to my recovery.I had been seen by a previous Doctor for over a month, when he decided it was time for me to see Dr. Hilgers.Honeslty, if I had never been referred to Dr. Hilgers, i think I would still be seeking medical attention for my problem. Thanks to Dr. Hilgers, I am 99.9% better and back to myself again.Dr.Hilgers is one of the best Doctors in and outside of Advocate. I have seen and worked with many Doctors, and Dr. Hilgers is in a class by himself.As a patient, I felt like I had a doctor who was honest, extremely knowledgeable, confident, caring, concerned, and most of all, not leaving my side, until he was confident I was back to normal and feeling myself again.i always felt like I was putting him out, and every time he would reassure me that I wasn't.Also, a couple of times during my visits, there were a couple of issues that came into play that could delay or impact my treatment that Dr. Hilgers had in place. Dr. Hilgers did not have his staff do the research for him, he gathered the information needed at the office visit, and tried making the phone calls at that very moment to get resolution. Dr. Hilgers is so much more than I provided in this survey. No survey will ever give this man the recognition he deserves, but I truly hope Advocate does. There are not many like Dr. Hilgers left. So blessed to have had him for my medical care! Thanks Dr. Hilgers
