I was worried that might need spine surgery after what appeared to be a nasty looking MRI to me. Dr Billys relieved my fears. Hopefully I'm on the road to less pain now!

Dr. Billy’s Has been the utmost professional with a deep care attitude and a willingness to take whatever time necessary to answer all of your questions. He is very thorough and goes through all imaging available to clearly explain options. It’s easy to get a very ‘assuring’ feeling after meeting with him.

This is more of a review of the BACK Center than of Dr. Billys. Very careless with billing and documentation which resulted in an insurance nightmare that has gone on for over a year. My surgery was miscoded and the insurance company would not pay. I was accidently sent home right after spinal surgery when I was supposed to stay overnight and had to go back to the ER. My advice is: Go somewhere else.
