I love Dr. Bilbo! After struggling for months I went to him for a second opinion, and everything I was going to say to him, he said first! This man knows what he's talking about and he is so friendly and funny! He's preforming my surgery in 2 weeks, and I'm so glad to have him onmg side!

He refused to consider any aid to me since I was in a wheel chair and overweight. Three years later my knee is fused and immobile and I have lost 90 pounds. He made me feel like a piece of garbage and had no empathy. Definitely not in the practice for compassion.
