The intake nurse is not very friendly, and being at the Center, I’m already feeling self-conscious. Dr. Billy however is so kind and explains everything clearly. He spends as much time as needed. He is not rushed.

After meeting with several doctors, I was so pleased to be in Dr. Billy's office. Heather navigated me through insurance approval. Becky explained logistics and details to make sure I got everything to them they needed. Dr. Billy evaluated by case; was kind and confident and reassuring. Every detail, including Gabby's friendly coordination at the front desk, treated me like their most valued patient. THANK YOU.

I had so many questions about the Gastric Bypass Duodenal Switch surgery and another medical issue I am having, that Dr. Billy was more than willing to see me at 3 1/2 months pre- op to meet with me. Not only did he answer all my questions, but he took the time to really care about my other medical issues with as much care and concern as my bariatric ones. Dr. Billy really shines as stellar surgeon who knows this intense operation, but also understands the humanness of his patients. I felt truly cared for by this visit.
