Dr Billante is by far the best orthopedist I\'ve ever seen (stemming from football injuries 30 years ago). he is friendly, courteous, honest and does a remarkable job of exposing what he sees and future treatments.

I am new to the Austin area having moved here a couple of months ago. Unfortunately, I fell off of a ladder while setting up my new house and needed to have the right shoulder evaluated. I was very impressed with the whole staff at the clinic.

I have a complex issue. The provider didn\'t even allow me the time to tell him about my injury. I was being as succinct as possible. He did not listen. He was arrogant and I left feeling completely unheard with no answers whatsoever. He literally interrupted me to tell me his only suggestion was to see a chiropractor but never even let me get far enough into telling him what was wrong to tell him I\'d seen a chiropractor for 6 months before coming to him. I am seriously considering leaving Scott & White altogether.
