Brought my 2 sons in to see Dr Hilton after their GP suggested they both see a podiatrist due to their pronation. He was so great with my boys (one who is scared of going to see any doctor) and really helped them. I can say it's been just under 3 months since we saw him and both my sons are showing major improvements. Thank you Dr Hilton!

Orthotics obtained and cause more pain than without them so far. Nice Guy, but would not recommend Podiatry as a modality for this problem based on this experience.||Respond|

My foot problems are totally gone now thanks to him. He is patient and answered all my questions. I never felt rushed either, which many doctors make you feel. Very pleasant office and great staff. Highly recommend.||Respond|

The result was that I feel to this day he just wanted to sell me orthotics and make a quick buck rather than helping and understanding the problem. I bought the orthotics he recommended for my running shoes, which turned out to be a complete disaster. When I complained that they didn't feel right, he blamed the shoes (even though I had tried 3 or 4 different shoes from different brands by then). I learned later that the orthotics he had made for me were the wrong kind (stiff instead of flexible; only 3/4 length instead of full length for a mid-foot/fore-foot striker) for running and actually made my problem worse (a diagnosis another specialist confirmed later). Dr. Hilton may be able to help some people but I think his understanding of running is very limited and, based on my experience, I cannot recommend him for runners at all.||Respond|

I've seen a sports medicine doctor, naturopath, osteopath, massage therapist, accupuncturist - you NAME it and this guy seems to finally have some straighforward, REAL answers. I'll keep this site posted on the progress of my (2!) Achilles spurs and one Haglund deformity.||Respond|
