Ratings for Dr. Leon Hilton
He may well be a perfectly wonderful podiatrist, I could not seem to get an appointment booked - there is one receptionist named Christine whose behavior on the phone was bizarre and completely unprofessional - I was polite and called to inquire about Dr. Hilton's services with a few simple questions - but this receptionist seemed to only answer 99% of the few questions I asked with her own questions - and when I very nicely mentioned this she slammed the phone down in my ear. If this is how a doctor chooses to have his clinic run, I have to wonder about the whole place.
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.
