I was seriously injured a year ago, and was having trouble getting straight answers from 2 other hand surgeons that I had seen. Dr. Bilderback listed my problems and gave me a plan for each one. While I realize nothing will make my arm normal, I am much better and very grateful for the help that he gave me.

Dr Bilderback was wonderful! He was easy to talk to, explained everything to me and my son, and answered all of our questions and our concerns. Made us feel very comfortable with the treatment presented. I highly recommend him!

I left the appointment with no course of treatment, no solution, nothing. He ran no tests and barely examined me, but he's more than willing to take that insurance and my copay after waiting 45 minutes. Infuriating.

This man is so disrespectful, unprofessional, and rude. He stormed out of the office but not before yelling bluntly, being so abrupt, and dis-tasteful. I would not recommend anyone to see him because he goes from 0-100 in 5 seconds. Watch out! The first thing he does is shake your hand but you Dare not to have any questions for him because you just assured yourself a roller coaster ride from hell, that leaves you wondering what just happened? Been had that's what, humiliated and he profited!

I have gone to see Dr. Bilderback several times. He's always nice and he explains what is going on, in depth. I had a right wrist arthroscopy in April of 2015. I haven't had any problem with my wrist since the surgery. Surgery is always a last option. I would recommend anyone to go see him.
