My experience with Dr. Helmuth and his staff was unlike all the others. He never spoke about price and only spoke about techniques, pro’s and cons in regards to the medical procedures. He was very informative and left me without even having to ask any questions. His staff was super nice and made me feel very welcomed.

Very thorough meeting with Dr. Billy who answered all my questions and gave me alternate suggestions to what I thought I knew and wanted. I changed my mind to having gastric bypass instead of the sleeve after talking over an hour with Dr. Billy. Dr. Billy gave me confidence and satisfaction in his performing my future surgery.

Dr. Billy is a very dedicated specialist in the field of bariatrics. He really cares and finds a way to help each patient, including me. I’m a more complicated case, I suppose. He never gave up on me. He’s knowledgeable in finding the right solution to help me. I appreciate him so much he’s so smart, more than we’ll ever know! His office is comprehensive. They have meals and nutrition there to keep you healthy. He’s excellent! And his staff is very kind and efficient.

Both the staff and Dr Billy could not have been more gracious,caring, and professional! I particularly like DrBilly’s bedside manner; ie matter of fact, to the point, great stories and analogies to prove a point, and most of all an inspired and great cheerleader to recover! Without him and his style I don’t think I would be making the progress that I am!

My experience meeting Dr. Billy for the first time was exceptionally good. He was incredibly knowledgeable, kind, patient, and willing to answer any and all questions I had. His additional knowledge of anesthesiology helped to put many of my fears to rest. I feel 100% prepared for my surgery now, and I am excited and looking forward to it.
