Dr Billante was very professional and everything a patient would want in a doctor. I was a new patient so he was quick to absorb all the prior history about my knees and caring and concerned about how to proceed with treatment. I was impressed that he sent me for x-rays before my appointment so he would be better prepared to make a diagnosis and plan of action. he also recommended physical therapy - that doesn't always happen for everyone. I highly recommend him.
