Fantastic! Dr. Billy and his staff treat me like family, or better than. I never leave without knowing everything I need to know and then some. Never felt more relaxed in a Doctor's office before. I wouldn't nor would I trust any other Doctor than Dr. Billy for my weight loss operations. You just couldn't be in better hands.

By the grace of God Dr. Billy was the on call surgeon when I was raced to the ER last week with a perforated ulcer. Dr. Billy had performed my gastric bypass surgery in 2004, which to date, I have lost 210 pounds, and have maintained a weight of 120 for years. I can not say enough about Dr. Billy. He saved my life, now more than once. He is kind, compassionate and the best bedside manner of any doctor I have ever been too, and unfortunately I have been to too many. His practice is top of the line. They are all informed and seem to truly care about the people that enter. Go no further than Dr. Billy for your needs. You will not be disappointed.

Dr. Billy and Dr. Simpson were very thorough the entire procedure. Anytime I began to feel uncertain or concerned, they reassured me and took the tame to explain everything in terms that made sense to me. All of the staff there went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and included in every step. I am so much more educated on the field of bariatrics and I am able to inform my friends and family who are considering a weightloss procedure as well. The entire program is so clear and reasonable. If I can do this, anyone can and get great results as well

Dr Billy takes the time to answer all my concerns and truly inspires confidence in the process. In fact, every person who works there is not only friendly and welcoming, but they are really good at what they do. I have to drive almost a hour each way for my appts, even though there are bariatric doctors about 5 minutes from my house, but it’s worth it. Dr Billy and his group are the best!

First visit with Dr. Billy, not for weight loss, but to help with other issues. My wife and I left feeling like we actually might get somewhere with her health issues.

Dr. Billy did my VSG surgery in July of 2019. The process leading up to surgery was extremely fast, and the surgery itself was amazing, I was also insanely impressed at how small and non noticeable the incisions/scars have been. He was so genuine in our appointments and was great the day of surgery and the follow ups. I wouldn’t recommend ANYONE other than doctor billy!
