Patient Comments (5)

Dr. Bilchik is professional and a highly skilled surgeon. He operated on me just last week and my recovery has been fast and smooth. The surgery fixed my health problem, and he even took the time to close my incision so that it looks like a scratch instead of a scar. He is by far the BEST!!!
