Remember health care before managed care?
Dr. Hill practices medicine the old-fashioned way. He takes the time with you that you need, not the 15 minutes allowed by the "corporation." I have never waited longer than 10 minutes to be seen. The office staff is small and after a few visits, they know you (not like the revolving door staff at large clinics). While his service is old-fashioned, his medicine isn't. He is up-to-date on the latest and even notifies you when new options are available. I highly recommend Dr. Hill.
I've found him to be caring and interested in his patients. He's a top notch doctor. The only quibble I have is that there's sometimes a very long wait at his office.
Brutally Honest but Wise
This doctor can rub people the wrong way because he is brutally honest but he's experienced and usually right. If you are sensitive, he may not be the right doctor for you. If you can hold your own in an argument and tend to let things roll off your back then you can handle the attitude. In most cases, his knowledge is valuable enough to make me overlook the personality issues. Have you ever watched the TV show House?...
Dr Merren has been my mother's neurologist for 15+ years and is absolutely wonderful. I've had to visit him on a couple of occassions as well, and he's nothing but kind and very informative. He's really helped my Mom control her MS as best as possible and opened her and our familys' eyes to all the medicinal possibilities. He's absolutely the best!
