"I had my initial consult with Dr Bilof on Saturday 3/9/19 ~ yes a Saturday! Everyone in the office is just great! Jessica greeted me, she was very nice and knowledgeable, made me feel comfortable as soon as I stepped into the office. Before I met with the Dr I spent about 20mins with the PA who took my history, did an exam etc. He was super nice and easy to talk to. Dr Bilof spent at least an hour with me explaining my options in great detail and answering every question I had ~ even the ones I asked more than once! I never felt rushed at all. The fact that he was a vascular surgeon before becoming a bariatric surgeon gives me a high level of comfort with his ability to handle any issues that could arise during and after surgery, especially because revision surgery is complicated.
After meeting with Dr Bilof, I met with Julie who is the surgical coordinator, and she set up a few appointments for me and stressed that should I have any questions to call any time. She was incredibly down to earth, very friendly and accommodating. You can just tell she has this journey down to a science and that takes a lot of stress off of the patient.
Saturday was just step one for me, but I am 100% confident that I've found the right practice for me. Give them a call - they're probably the right practice for you too! "
