Myself and my husband along with our children has been seeing Dr B for over 15 years , he is a great doctor very caring and concerned about his patients . My oldest children have married and have children of there own and they still go to see him, I have sent many family members to him and they all have stayed with him over the years . If you don't mind a urgent care setting I highly recommend him. Once you have gone 3 or 4 times he rembers you by name.

Dr. Billew was recommended by a fellow RN. I was positively impressed with his casual professionalism and knowledge-base! I'll recommend him to anyone that asks me if I know a really good physician and, will certainly return to his facility whenever I need treatment.

He picked up the report and then flippantly just dropped it in front of me without reading it. This experience.was unbelievably rude and unprofessional. I'll obviously be looking for another ph
