It's been a few years since my back surgery. I had a herniated disc in the L5-S1 region of my back. Three things stick out the most from my experience with Florida Orthopedic Institute and Dr. Billys.
1. When I went to the appointment at Florida Orthopedic the doctor I saw did not specialize in the condition I had, herniated disc in the L5-S1 region. Due to this he was able to get me to see Dr. Billys in the same visit even though I was not scheduled to see him. I cannot say enough thanks for being able to see Dr. Billys that day as it got the ball rolling on some much needed pain relief.
2. After doing the require tests; MRI, nerve conduction study, etc.. Dr. Billys didn't seem to mind taking time to explain any question I asked for thing like recovery time, chance for failure, possible re-occurrence etc.. He may seem short and to the point but he give you all the information you need and more.
3. The biggest thing is on the day of my back surgery I did not bring my MRI to the hospital the surgery was being performed at, the hospital did not mention the need to bring them in. Dr. Billys and team waited until some brought them to the hospital.
It's been a few years since my surgery and I'm still pain free, I would recommend Florida Orthopedic institute to treat anyone with the type of pain I was having and I would especially recommend Dr. Billys for spine related problems.
