Dr. Hilliard holds the firm belief that each and every patient should be treated as if they were a member of his own family and he will make no exceptions when it comes to the quality of their care.

If surgery is found to be necessary, he utilizes the most up to date and minimally invasive treatments possible to treat his patients.
