July 21, 2020 7:02 AM

Very happy with Dr. Hilgers.

July 21, 2020 7:02 AM

Very knowledgeable, trust his judgment and concerns.

July 20, 2020 6:24 AM

I think Dr. Marc Hilgers is the best I ever had and I don't want to to lose him. he does a very best I ever had. He is the greatest I truly believe this.

July 20, 2020 6:24 AM

Nothing every thing he does for my knees is positive. He's the best knee doctor I've. Thank you.

July 8, 2020 11:31 AM

Dr Hilgers is great, he answered all of my questions and will do whatever he can to get me back to playing again so I can make my trip to Greece!

June 25, 2020 3:45 PM

Dr Hilgers explain what my choices were and what his recommendation was. He gave me all of the necessary information I would need to make the decision.

June 22, 2020 1:39 PM

Very good -- Dr. Hilgers is always a delight to see and seems to really know what he is doing. I have had many shots in my right knee and never any pain or discomfort.

June 22, 2020 1:39 PM

On my last visit, I had to wait in the examining room for over 45 minutes. This is very unusual and has never happened before. Dr. Hilgers is usually almost right on time so I can only imagine that there was an emergency before me.

June 21, 2020 6:18 AM

Great Doctor and explained very well what my issue was and ordered physical therapy to help correct the issue before it get worse

June 12, 2020 10:19 AM

Dr. Hilgers and his team were very professional, efficient, thorough, and informative. I was worked in for an appointment the same morning that I called and I had 2 visits with Dr. Hilgers within a 2 week period and had 2 MRIs between the visits. I received exceptional care from the call center team, front desk team, MRI team, and Dr. Hilgers and his team. I was called by Dr. Hilger's team member a few days after my procedure for a checkup which was very thoughtful. At my first visit I was having significant hip pain and now I am pain free which is amazing. I would recommend Dr. Hilgers to my family and friends.

June 12, 2020 10:19 AM

I received excellent care! Thank you!

June 10, 2020 8:23 AM

I have been going to Dreyer Clinic since 1959 when they were in Aurora, IL. I am a medical person & have had great rapport with all doctors working their. (I am now retired.)

June 6, 2020 7:48 AM

I feel as though the provider is a good p doctor. his assistant spent more time with me than he did. I did not realize that it was being charged for the time that his assistant came in and gave me instruction very disappointed in the billing.

May 28, 2020 1:56 PM

I was very happy with Dr. Hilgers. He had a great bedside manner & seemed to be very complete.

May 28, 2020 1:56 PM

Very appreciative of the care especially during the COVID-19 situation.

Good.

April 17, 2020 9:03 AM

Mark Hilgers made it very difficult to receive care. It was difficult to get an appointment and due to the incompetence of his staff I was unable to begin physical therapy for a month. Then he _____ reduced my PT appointments from 8 to 6 despite my PT stating I needed more therapy.

April 17, 2020 9:03 AM

When I arrived for my follow up, Hilgers MOCKED me for how long it had been between appointments even though it was his staff's fault. Then refused to prescribe further physical therapy.

April 16, 2020 9:09 AM

Very pleasant, professional, and caring.

March 24, 2020 8:19 AM

Dr. Hilgers is always friendly, approachable, and attentive. Have utmost confidence in his diagnoses & remedies. He has just finished a series of PRP injections in my left hip.

March 21, 2020 2:18 PM

I went to Dr. Hilgers because of a tendonitis in my wrist. He was kind, informative, and wonderful. After discussion and explanation, he gave me a cortozone shot. That, as well as my OT exercises, has worked wonders. I will highly recommend him to anyone who needs an orthopedic.

March 21, 2020 2:18 PM

Thank God for Dr. Hilgers.

March 18, 2020 6:19 AM

Dr. Hilgers is an excellent doctor. Took the right amount of time with me and listened to my needs.

Excellent experience.

March 14, 2020 12:50 PM

good

February 24, 2020 10:22 PM

Dr. Hilgers ordered PT I didn't feel was helping her ordered it again and suggested changing therapists for a different perspective. That worked well.

February 12, 2020 11:38 AM

This doctor is pleasant, friendly and congenial. We are able to talk about family and other situations in life.

February 12, 2020 11:38 AM

Always, a great experience though there is always pain with the injection (which is not the doctor's fault.

December 27, 2019 10:04 AM

He was very thorough, explained he was doing and what I should do in the future he also discussed further treatment options.

December 23, 2019 3:20 PM

Dr Hilgers is exceptionally bright, very helpful, very understanding of my personal problems at home with a spouse in a wheel chair. He is my doctor, not my friend but I would feel very lucky to be his friend.

December 23, 2019 3:20 PM

I know that he does not walk on water, but he is really close to do anything for his patients, at any time.

June 3, 2019 7:00 PM

Seems like good ortho doctor, but arrogant!

June 2, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Hilgers is a great ortho doctor. I had knee surgery in FL in March. I went to Dr. Hilgers to see if my knee is still healing properly. I also wanted this surgery documented on my file here. They copied all the info I brought from FL.

March 31, 2019 7:00 PM

It was great - I felt cared for and I was treated well. However, it did leave me with less answers than I hoped for.

March 24, 2019 7:00 PM

Good. Very good at his profession.

February 5, 2019 6:00 PM

Good experience

January 29, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Hilgers is a supportive doctor, providing with me plenty of information to make a decission that will provide me with the best possible options to insure a positive outcome. It is a 'GOOD' thing that the clinic has physicians like Dr. Hilgers treating "me" the "patient" (patron) like a person RATHER than a "medicial record number" as the "Adminstration" of the clinic does.

January 27, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Marc - I like his care he is my life saver - how I can not walk 2 yrs. problem in my knee he give me injection - help me. Pain, swelling the nurse work with him she also very sweet and helpful my need.

January 27, 2019 6:00 PM

Everyone was pleasant and helpful.

January 27, 2019 6:00 PM

fun

January 26, 2019 6:00 PM

I was very happy with the outcome of my visit for trigger finger. Dr. listened to my concerns, evaluated my condition and recommended treatment.

January 25, 2019 6:00 PM

Over an hour wait time, receptionist did not have late time on board or say anything until another patient asked if she had been checked in.

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

Great work I observed and seen! Appreciate it. Thank you.

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

It was much better than I expected.

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

The doctor was fine. I did feel that I was much more concerned about my issue than the doctor was.. It seemed that it was just routine for him. For me it was the start of a continuing problem (arthritis) and I didn't feel confident in handling the pain after seeing him.

January 18, 2019 6:00 PM

the provider or should I say doctor and his staff were very friendly and respectful. although they did seem confused with some of epic. tough transition!

January 13, 2019 6:00 PM

I feel Dr. Hilgers was the key to my recovery.I had been seen by a previous Doctor for over a month, when he decided it was time for me to see Dr. Hilgers.Honeslty, if I had never been referred to Dr. Hilgers, i think I would still be seeking medical attention for my problem. Thanks to Dr. Hilgers, I am 99.9% better and back to myself again.Dr.Hilgers is one of the best Doctors in and outside of Advocate. I have seen and worked with many Doctors, and Dr. Hilgers is in a class by himself.As a patient, I felt like I had a doctor who was honest, extremely knowledgeable, confident, caring, concerned, and most of all, not leaving my side, until he was confident I was back to normal and feeling myself again.i always felt like I was putting him out, and every time he would reassure me that I wasn't.Also, a couple of times during my visits, there were a couple of issues that came into play that could delay or impact my treatment that Dr. Hilgers had in place. Dr. Hilgers did not have his staff do the research for him, he gathered the information needed at the office visit, and tried making the phone calls at that very moment to get resolution. Dr. Hilgers is so much more than I provided in this survey. No survey will ever give this man the recognition he deserves, but I truly hope Advocate does. There are not many like Dr. Hilgers left. So blessed to have had him for my medical care! Thanks Dr. Hilgers

December 25, 2018 6:00 PM

I sustained a major injury at work and have seen several of your care providers multiple times a week for the last 2.5 months. Dr. Hilgers has kept up with all my care and has been instrumental in my recovery.

December 9, 2018 6:00 PM

I was there 15 mins before appt still waited 45 mins because the new computer system lost my appt . Then had to wait 30 mins for xray. Very unhappy total time at Batavia office 2 1/2 hours no need when I had appt.

November 17, 2018 6:00 PM

long time with calling main phone number to get connected to doctors office

November 15, 2018 6:00 PM

Excellent! HIGHLY recommend him.

November 12, 2018 6:00 PM

November 10, 2018 6:00 PM
