Patient Comments (2)
Dr. Bilfinger operated on my father in March of 2016. Dr. B can be very short at times in relation to bed side manner and that may bother some people, but that shouldn't be mistaken for lack of care and effort. I should note that he performed a surgery early on a Sunday morning on my father, which really highlights his level of dedication. This man has a gift of knowledge and a set of tools that benefit many individuals and you can be sure he will pull out all the cards he has to help you.
Dr bilfinger operated on my wife twice in the past 20 years. He and his staff are the best. God bless them all. Five stars 100% satisfied.
