Ratings for Dr. Leon Hilton
When I lived on the North Shore, I saw Dr. Hilton for many years for the severe pain I was experiencing in the heels of my feet. I then moved to White Rock and out of convenience, decided to go to a new orthotics centre closer to me. I've had my new orthotics for a year and have been progressively in more and more pain. I can't believe that I was fooled by a slick looking sports' orthotic clinic just because it was close to my house. You just can't beat the invaluable experience that Dr.Hilton has. Guess where I am going this week? To see Dr. Hilton to get a new set of orthotics made with his expertise!
I am so pleased to finally be pain-free! My heel was hurting so much with every single step. I finally made it to see Dr. Hilton and he made me custom orthotics. He also recommended the proper shoe for me to wear. My heel pain is all gone, thanks Dr. Hilton!
I have been seeing Dr. Hilton for years, as my parents were also patients of his. I'm a runner and have been having foot pain since I ran my first marathon. Dr. Hilton has helped me so much and I am happy to report that I'm totally pain-free. He's kind and knowledgeable and really listens to his patients.
I do not recommend Dr Hilton. His only recommendation for an arthritic joint was orthotics. He said there are no other treatment options - I found this strange as there are many methods to reduce arthritic pain and I thought he would at least suggest one. His answer was nothing helps. Also, he only examined my feet in the initial appointment and not after 6 weeks of wearing the orthotics. I expect a doctor to do a follow up exam to see if there are improvements. Will not go back and recommend you try somewhere else!
I've been bringing my son to him for years for his extreme high arches and resulting heel pain. Dr.Hilton is great with kids and a super nice and knowledgeable doctor. He's a very caring doctor. His staff are really sweet as well. Nice office environment. You can tell it's a happy place to work. Totally recommend. Thnx.
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!
seemed intent on selling orthotics. When questioned about rehab or exercises for plantars fasciitis he wasn't interested. No gait assessment or comprehensive exam. 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.
I recently moved to N Van from the US and was looking for a podiatrist due to a running injury. A friend recommended Dr Hilton and I saw him 2 times. 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.
I was not impressed with Dr. Hilton at all. I saw him after a running injury (I'm a Marathon runner). 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.
