    He was very thorough and very informative and he seemed very concerned about my issue, and willing to try to find a way to help clear it. Thank you.

  • Dec 19, 2019

    Dr. Hills is an amazing physician. I just wish all the doctors that we have had contact with during of medical time would be as conscientious, kind, thorough, knowledgeable and just wonderful is he is really been able to see him.

  • Dec 18, 2019

    I had a very positive experience with Dr. Hills explaining what my problem was, showing me my CAT scan of my brain and eye, the optic nerve and I've never had a doctor explain so well and, and be able to make me understand the problem and I would recommend him to anyone and I just really appreciated working with him.

  • Dec 17, 2019

    Great doctor and knowledgeable. Listened well and answered questions

  • Dec 17, 2019

    Casey Eye Institute is amazing. I would be blind today without my doctor and the technicians at Casey.

  • Dec 14, 2019

    Dr. Hills is very personable and easy to talk with. I have great confidence in his knowledge. I have been frustrated though with the wait time. My appointment time was 1:00 and I did not see Dr.Hills until 2:30. This is my second appointment with him and the same thing happened for my first appointment. He apologized and said he would rework his schedule so it was not so packed.

  • Dec 13, 2019

    I was actually pleased to have the appointment go as smoothly and quickly as it did. I was expecting a much longer time in the office. Everyone who helped me listened closely to what I shared and I really felt cared for.

  • Dec 13, 2019

    Dr. Hills is always aware of the whole patient. My elderly mother is experiencing many ailments, and he aims to investigate all her symptoms to find a solution that addresses as many as he can. he has referred her to other experts who can help with some of her other symptoms and I believe the level of her wellness at her advanced age can be credited to that care.

  • Dec 12, 2019

    Very nice, a very pleasant man, and I appreciated his time and the fact that he was very straight forward and took the time to explain what was going on and treated you like a person. So I appreciated that very much. Thank you.

  • Dec 11, 2019

  • Dec 10, 2019

    The faculty member and the ophthalmology resident were both great. Friendly, good bed side manners

  • Dec 03, 2019

    Dr Hills and his staff were very attentive and had genuine, honest desire to attend to my issues. Joyce administered various tests professionally that made me comfortable. Then, Dr Pasco and Dr Lopez provided concise insight as to the process of evaluation. I have seen many doctors in the last few years. I can say without hesitation that Dr Hills is the best. He connected with me personally and informed me in detail how he evaluated my condition and how we are to move forward. Thank you everyone.

  • Nov 20, 2019

    Dr.Hills is my doctor (Kelly) and when our local ophthalmologists suggested my son see a optic nerve specialist I knew I wanted him to see Dr.Hills because I know and trust him as I have been a patient for the last 7 years. He is kind, honest and easy to speak with. I always have a clear understanding of what the plan is and why for my health concerns and condition when I leave and that always makes me feel comfortable and knowledgeable to make best choice for my health, and the health of my son.

  • Nov 17, 2019

    Dr. Hills was very friendly and knowledgeable and I would highly recommend them.

    Dr. Hills was excellent. He explained everything well and spent. Significant amount of time helping us understand the disease process and our options for care.

  • Nov 14, 2019

    This provider was absolutely fantastic! I have seen many doctors with all my health issues and by far the greatest bedside manner, very caring, made me feel validated and that I was more than just another appointment on his schedule. He went above and beyond to make sure I understood what is happening in my body and showed me the imaging and what he saw. On time. Very very amazing

  • Nov 13, 2019

    I was quickly seen and was very pleased with Dr. Hill's interest, concern and friendly demeanor. He asked many questions and was genuinely interested in my answers. Dr.Hill also readily shared test results and explained their implications.

  • Nov 07, 2019

    I was very impressed with Dr. Hills felt he spent the time with me was extremely benefiting in my understanding of what my problem might be. Taking the extra time in finding out my situation.

  • Nov 05, 2019

    Dr. Hills asks thoughtful questions and then listens to answers and follows up with more questions if needed. His questions are not only the 'check the box' sorts, they encourage true dialogue. Going to a Neuro-ophthalmologist is frightening. I left feeling informed and affirmed...and reassured. That is powerful medicine.

  • Nov 02, 2019

    Dr. Hills is the most compassionate, skilled, empathetic, and caring doctor I ever seen. He diagnosed me finally after 2 months of seeing other providers and I'm so relieved now to be in his care and I will be forever grateful to him.

    He is the Kindest Doctor Ever ! I Have been fighting some Deficits from a Stroke and Brain Tumor. I have issues with new information making sense to me and ask a lot of questions, sometimes more then once and that can be quite taxing on many professionals. Not Him, he was Awesome. He Explained in Detail the many issues I have With My Eyes and how they are effected by my Brain Tumor. He done that very very well. I can easily Explain and repeat all of those details to my family & Friends with full understanding. He is an Amazing Doctor !! He was Kind, Patient , Caring , Understanding and very genuine Medical Professional, I Strongly Believe That. I will always highly Recommend Him and of Corse Casey Eye institute at OHSU. Thank You for the Excellent Patient care.

I just can't say enough about everyone there. Dr Hills takes the time to cover everything and answer any questions. I have told everyone I know about him and will continue to do so. I'm very grateful to him and his staff. He deserves an award for Dr of the year. They don't make em like him anymore.

  • Sep 24, 2019

    I felt as though he and the resident were extremely prepared for my visit - had read through my file and info from my other docs before I got there. I really appreciated the thorough explanation I received from Dr. Hills of my MRI results. It helped me understand my anatomy and eased my mind about some of the comments in the report on my brain MRI. Dr. Hills was a really nice person, too! And, I liked having the resident and a medical student involved in the discussion.
