Specialties

Dr. Peter J Hillsamer has the following 2 specialties

  • Plastic Surgery

    A plastic surgery specialist is a physician with extensive training in the execution of plastic surgery procedures.
    Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts. Congenital defects, such as a cleft lip or palate, can be corrected by a plastic surgery specialist. Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.
    The other category of plastic surgery is cosmetic plastic surgery. Plastic surgery specialists often perform procedures like breast augmentation, face lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and lip injection as elective surgeries for patients who wish to make aesthetic improvements.

  • Otolaryngology

    An otolaryngologist is more commonly referred to as an ENT, someone that can treat medical issues you may be having with you ears, nose, or throat. This is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions of the ear, nose, sinuses, larynx (voice box), mouth, throat, head, and neck. These doctors treat patients through both medical and surgical means. For instance, an otolaryngologist may treat an obstruction of the nasal passage, caused by malformation of the nose, through rhinoplasty.

Everything went as expected

Dr. Hillsamer did a fine job the times I've seen him, and have no reason not to recommend him to others. Will be having sinus surgery this summer, so I'll have more to review in a couple months. Thought I'd write a review because his rating was low due to an overly angry patient who thought he deserved one star for a long wait. Really? I've seen him several times, and each experience has been fine. No issues, and no longer wait than anywhere else. People are so obnoxious.

Choose a different physician

All things being equal, please choose another physician. He put my daughters ear tubes in and while his clinical work was adequate, his bedside manner is atrocious. He told a patient horror story in front of her that frightened her to the point that she cried all night long afterward. He also seems to believe his time is more important than his patients, never offering an apology or explanation for long office waits (>45 minutes).
