Dr. Billy takes excellent care of his patients. His staff is very well trained in the diligent care he demands. He made me feel safe in surgery. I knew I could trust him. He removed my gall bladder a couple years ago and I had zero trouble. He is an outstanding surgeon. I am on this site because I am considering bypass surgery. I wouldn't even consider going to anyone else. If you are looking for a GREAT doctor, I give him my highest possible recommendation.
