    Horrible experience! She checked our daughter's ear and that was it. We got bills totaling $800 and we are still getting them. We asked for a detailed billing statement and still nothing except bills.

    The best doctor, very knowledgeable and after years of suffering, going to other doctors, taking a lot of antibiotics for sinus infections... my friend recommended dr Billings and she diagnosed my daughter with adenoids. After the outpatient surgery my daughter's sinus infections stopped !!! I would highly recommend this doctor !!!

    Dr. Billings removed my 2 year olds adenoids and then 2 years later removed his tonsils. She was great! Super knowledgeable and very informative. We just interacted with a different ENT on an emergency case for our younger child, but we will be following up with Dr. Billings. Sometimes specialists can be very gruff and haughty but Dr. Billings is completely down to earth. We won't go anywhere else.

    Dr. Billings was my son's ENT for tonsil and adenoid removal. We could not be happier with the results. My then 2.5 year old had very large tonsils which prevented him from eating properly, breathing and sleeping. He snored and almost always breathed with his mouth open. After the procedure he started eating more and sleeping was no longer a problem. My son slept thru the night for the first time at age 3. Very easy to schedule appointments. Dr. Billings was wonderful to work with.
