Yes, Dr. Billy is outstanding!! As a physician, and a “friend“, Dr. Billy is ahead of all the rest. He’s never made me feel as if I was asking the “dumb” question. When I first started my weight loss journey, he was positive, and responded with care and concern. My experience included a procedure that presented difficult, at best. He was successful with the weight loss potion of the surgery, however, the additional repair I requested could not have been completed safely. He explained everything to me with great detail, for which I will always be grateful. He is PRICELESS!!

First time meeting Dr Billy. Felt very relaxed and comfortable as he explained how the procedure would be done, the before prep and after care. I came away from the appointment feeling educated and very confident that all will be well. Thank you Dr Billy, and may all your flights be in first class!

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!
