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...more

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.
