June 18, 2019 7:00 PM

I think he's & excellent doctor. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

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.

May 31, 2019 7:00 PM

This was my 1st visit to Dr. Hilgers. He and his care team was very professional, listen to my concerns, answered questions and throughly discussed my diagnosis and treatment plan.

May 25, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Hilgers got my knee therapy back on track after a setback caused by a more general infection.

It was very good

April 28, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Hilgers was friendly, helpful, and approachable. He answered all my questions about me and about my 94-year-old mother who had the appointment before me. He didn't rush us, and he gave us clear instructions moving forward.

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


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

So happy to have seen him. Hi gave me a new diagnosis and new PT that is working very well.

October 8, 2018 7:00 PM

Marc Hilgers was very efficient and spent focused time with me. His assistant did preliminary information and verbal contact very well. That balanced the short amount of time I spent with him.

September 24, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Hilgers know how to locate the exact spot in my hip where there is pain. He is friendly and explains things well.

September 21, 2018 7:00 PM

This was a great visit. The sports medicine ortho person who met with me before Dr. Hilgers did a great job with everything before Dr. H. came into the room. Then was in the room with Dr. Hilgers during the appt. They were a great team. Felt very well taken care of, not rushed and felt that they truly cared about my issue and getting me back to top condition.

September 10, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. seemed uninvolved just doing his job.

September 10, 2018 7:00 PM

Good Dr.

August 28, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Hilgers keeps current with ortho care.

August 25, 2018 7:00 PM

Pleased with follow-up check and information given.

August 21, 2018 7:00 PM

good at his job, lacks personality.

August 20, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr Hilgers very informative & helpful, offered details about what was wrong & how to resolve the issue.

April 23, 2018 7:00 PM


April 21, 2018 7:00 PM

I enjoyed meeting Dr. Hilgers & his female & male assistants. All are clearly very knowledgeable & caring.

April 21, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Hilgers immediately knew what was causing my pain, and with an adjustment performed by him, I have had no pain since.

April 10, 2018 7:00 PM

The nurse with Dr. Hilgers was the nicest person I have ever had to deal with at ANY dr. appointment. Wish I can remember her name.

March 22, 2018 7:00 PM

As always very pleasant and helpful

March 12, 2018 7:00 PM

Everything went well, questions answered.

March 11, 2018 7:00 PM


March 5, 2018 6:00 PM

The doctor was pleasant and helpful. I got the attention that I wanted.

February 26, 2018 6:00 PM

It seems to be indicative that the orthoprdic practice whether it is at Advocate or somewhere else, they can never run on time

February 22, 2018 6:00 PM


January 25, 2018 6:00 PM

The let me sit for an hour in dr. office and he never showed up so I had to leave and go back to work.

December 15, 2017 6:00 PM


November 14, 2017 6:00 PM

Excellent, factual _____ caring.

November 2, 2017 7:00 PM

Very good with explaining my hip injury. Good & easy to talk to. Good humor - To me that helps.

November 2, 2017 7:00 PM

I think and rate Dr. Hilgers highly - direct and to the point but respectfully.

October 30, 2017 7:00 PM

my 45 min wait time, and having to alert the receptionist I was still waiting, was the only downfall. otherwise, my experience was top notch with both the nurse and the doctor. I look forward to working with this provider again to meet my needs.

October 28, 2017 7:00 PM

the dr. was short and to the point.he was able to see what was wrong right away. his asst. Lini was very good she was very professional and very helpful.

October 28, 2017 7:00 PM

very good service from all the staff including the position my only concern is sad x-rays are done and part of my difficulty involves soft tissues which does not show up on the X-ray I do realize that this is the insurance protocol that I wish positions would resist that more overall I've had it very very good experiences with your facilities

October 25, 2017 7:00 PM

very courteous. was able to explain exactly what is happening and how is can be cured

October 24, 2017 7:00 PM


October 8, 2017 7:00 PM

Love Dr Hilgers and all his assistants - they all take the time to explain the procedures/instructions and show/explain xrays. All done in a friendly and pleasant manner. [Another great recommendation from Dr XX]

October 4, 2017 7:00 PM

This was my 1st visit in ortho. The dr. was direct, used my x-rays as a guide. Hard to answer yes or no for 1st visit. In-take assistant was very thorough for dr. felt he well into the visit.

September 16, 2017 7:00 PM

Dr. Hilgers and his staff have been incredibly helpful and supportive in trying to find injections and treat my mother's osteoarthritis in her knees. Lelia spent a good part of last week trying to figure out how to get Medicare, BCBS, and/or my mother's Part D insurance to pay for Synvisc injections. She and the whole staff have always gone above and beyond to help us.

September 12, 2017 7:00 PM

I took time out of my day, paid my co-pay and waited for my turn so Dr. Hilgers could rush in, ask me how my pain was and send me to another specialist. Took about 2 minutes with me. He seemed to be in a hurry to move on to his next appt.

September 5, 2017 7:00 PM

very professional and caring

August 25, 2017 7:00 PM

Dr. Hilgers is wonderful!

August 20, 2017 7:00 PM
