"Dr. Hiltzik is outstanding. I have already recommended his services & referred one of his patients."

"Dr Hiltzik is so friendly and informative, I think the wait time is because he takes the time to answer all questions and concerns. my daughter likes him a lot, he's very good with children. I especially liked that he explained the procedure to her, in terms that she can understand (she's 6)."
04/07/2018
"He was very informative and patient with all my concerns and questions. He was good with my daughter so that's a major plus. She likes him, and I was surprised to hear her say she actually wants her surgery now. Thats because she was able to tell him why she was afraid and he answered her without lying. I like that too because to tell a patient that it won't hurt, then it does hurt, that isn't a good thing, especially for kids. My daughter responds well to people when they keep it real."
