I was very pleased with my overall experience with Dr. Billy. If anyone is struggling with weight loss and associated weight health ailments please do yourself the favor and get a consultation with Dr. Billy. My only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner. Trust the process.

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.
