Michael J. Hilts, MD, is board certified in primary care sports medicine and family medicine. His professional interests include sports medicine, family medicine, musculoskeletal ultrasound and functional medicine.

Collaborative and caring, he treats patients as he would family members. For patients with medical or orthopedic problems, he strives to determine the root cause of conditions rather than merely treating symptoms. In addition to nutritional, lifestyle and biomechanical factors, he takes time to understand past personal and family history.

In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his wife and daughters and roasting his own coffee beans. He is actively involved in Bible Study Fellowship.

“From a medical standpoint, I have a strong desire to help patients learn to improve their health and well-being without prescription medicine whenever possible. From an orthopedic standpoint, my goal is to improve or resolve conditions without surgery if possible.” – Michael J. Hilts, MD

Dr Hilts was very informative and taught us quite a bit about what was going on and what was contributing to the lack of progress. Furthermore he made a tangible plan with steps to take toward discovery and recovery. Previously we were told (by a different provider in a different office)to just go rest and wait for it to improve. Thankfully Dr Hilts had more to offer!

Interesting experience
January 02, 2022
Very professional and personable. Listened and took me serious. Discussed the most likely diagnosis and treatment, while pursuing alternatives to ensure my underlying problems were being addressed and not just symptoms.It was a dialogue where I shared my concerns and learned a lot in the process - respectful exchange. This was truly the best experience I have had at a medical practitioner.

Dr Hilts was very responsive. He answered my questions and took an x-ray of my shoulder to clarify the problem. I felt very comfortable with Dr Hilts. He is knowledgeable, thoughtful and willing to consult with other professionals.

Very good
December 10, 2021
Dr. Hilts listened to me describe my problem, asked questions as well as follow up questions. Examined me, told me he would like to do a CT and why and then told me what he would like to do if the CT scan came back ok.
December 10, 2021
Spend about 10 minutes talking with Dr. Hilts about my back problems and history of the problem over the past year. He made the right decision in suggesting that I get an MRI as the MRI that I got 4 days later revealed severe spinal problems that x-rays did not detect. Good call there as now we at least know what the problem is.

July 25, 2021
Everything was pleasant!!! The Dr was excellent!!! He moved expeditiously in rectifying the problem instead of dragging out the inevitable... He didn't play around bc those x-rays showed him everything he needed to see... Other dr's in the past wanted to play the wait and see game when they knew it was game over a long time ago... I am so glad to be in the care of dr's who seem to geniually care about my now...I may be on my last leg in enjoying my life to the fullest!!!

I truly enjoyed the visit and have already recommended Dr. Hilts to a couple of friends. He took his time to explore everything that occurred since my last visit, go over in great detail my X-rays and the scan and what I was looking at and his thoughts. He factored in all the lifestyle changes and provided great feedback there as well. Very personable, professional and knowledgeable and I'm just so happy I found him and his treatments are already impacting my wellness after almost 3 years in pain.
