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!

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!!
