in Davenport, FL |
Dr. Billys is extremely thorough and analytical regarding each component of spine and back problems or injuries. He is totally up on the newest and/or best procedures and devices to either cure or mitigate back and spine issues with the least invasive methods. He is also careful to thoroughly discuss what will be done along with the expected outcome and/or any potential risks. I would highly recommend board certified Dr. James Billys for any and all back issues. He is the best.

This "surgeon's" failure to properly diagnose and properly treat my damaged left SI joint is/was inexcusable! He was all "gung-ho" to fix my left SI joint that was damaged by his physical therapist until his surgery failed. He then promptly disappeared as my treating MD and my only treatment plan was with his ARNPs. Anyone planning surgery w/ this MD (he thinks it means medical deity) DO YOUR HOMEWORK and investigate thoroughly. I have gone from running MILES to hardly get to mailbox.

Valrico, FL |
I think Dr Billy's is a amazing doctor. He always take the time to find out what the patient is feeling and then exam the patient..Then he is able to tell them what he thinks and maybe what will work for them... I was seen by him and he told me what he thought, then did MRIs nurve study. Then I went back for a follow up... And he showed me everything that was wrong.. gave me 3 ways that I could go...So I did surgery and could not be anymore ?? then I am...Thank you Dr.Billys

Dr Billy's was very detailed explaining the problem and very confident on what needed to be done for improvement, he took his time to go over the situation and provided me with options on treatment including the most effective route to fix my problem. Definitely recommend Dr Billy's for anyone who's encountering any sort of back discomfort.
