Dr. Billy was very thorough and spent ample time explaining his diagnosis and treatment. I was very impressed with his knowledge and his “bedside” manner. I will enjoy having him as my treating physician.

I have been a patient for the last 11years. Dr. Billy has been there year after year providing the excellent care we all look for in a doctor. His skills as a surgeon are well known as people travel long distances to see him. When visiting him in the office he gives you all the time you need, he doesn’t rush you...however you may have to wait a tad bit longer. But you will get your turn with him too! He gives excellent day to day advise for living our “new way”. Not only listen, but follow his instructions and you will get the results you came for. Thank you Dr. Billy, you are one of the few GREAT doctors!

For the last five years I’ve dealt with discomfort relating to my large hiatal hernia. My doctor has referred me to Dr. Billy. Today I can say I think I can find some relief with Dr. Billy’s recommendation of surgery that he has explained in detail to my husband and myself! Looking forward to getting this done and feeling like my old self! Thank you Dr. Billy!

The first time I seen Dr. Billy was 2010, I decided to make a life change. He took good care of me and I lost 85 lbs. I felt great, and 2 years after never went back. I thought I was fine, even dealing what what I thought were side effects or just blamed it on the surgery! Last Wednesday I ended up in the ER and had an emergency laparoscopic by another surgeon, but Dr. Billy went in to make sure I was okay and it wasn’t anything serious! I made a follow up appointment with him, and I felt we started back where we left off! I’m very thankful it wasn’t anything worse, but one thing I learned is to keep going back to follow up with him at least once a year! Listen to your body!
