Dr Hilti is very knowledgeable. I've been going to him for years. He's wanted me to use a medication that he feels is in my best interest but I've been reluctant. That makes me anxious about my visit.

After Dr. Hilty told me what test he would order next & his office would contact me, our call ended. I hadn't fully processed it yet so call was over before I realized I had questions about the test. I will have to call his office and try & have someone call me back for me to get answers before I agree to have test.
