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.

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
