Extraordinary experience today with Dr. Hillson! I was referred by our local ER and Dr. Hillson performed a very thorough examination, to find a retinal tear. Dr. Hillson was a virtual stranger to me, yet every time I mentioned his name in the hospital, the staff were quick to praise this man. We followed him to the OR and watched, as he greeted kitchen staff, maintenance men, etc. Surgery went well enough, but he realized his limitations and directed me to a retinal specialist. It's a shame we can only allot five stars to this professional.

Dr. Tim Hillson's response
I am very sorry to hear about your negative experience at our practice. The practice is very busy, as by the numbers our region should have 14 eye surgeons, in practice we have only six, making our area underserviced for ophthalmology. Nonetheless, our goal is to provide every patient with exemplary care and the best outcomes. We welcome the opportunity to listen to your concerns to make things right for you. Please feel free to contact us at 705-325-6591.

I found Dr. Hillson to be extremely unprofessional. He was in a rush, did not explain the procedure before the procedure was performed. He introduced himself but never even looked at me. Asked many unnecessary questions that if he had read my file he would have been informed of this information previous to my appointment. Same with his staff members. There are too many patients needing his services , perhaps he is overworked and forgotten how to be nice along the way.
