To Make An Appointment

For many procedures, you can call and schedule your own appointment with a General Surgeon.  


You may also contact your primary care physician to see if a referral is necessary.  If you do not have a primary care physician, call Billings Clinic HealthLine. A registered nurse will assist you.

Billings Clinic provides COVID-19 testing for patients undergoing an elective procedure and asymptomatic patients with a provider order for testing. For your convenience, we have opened a curbside COVID-19 Pre-Procedural Testing Center in Billings, where you can have the test performed from your car. This is located outside of our Clinic on North Broadway, between 7th and 8th Avenues North, near SameDay Care Downtown.  We have scheduled times or you can drive up during regular buisness hours. 

For  pre-procedure testing your care team will schedule a time for you to have your test done at the Center and others may present during the hours of 8am-5pm, Monday – Friday. Testing samples are analyzed and take about four to six business days for results. The provider that requested the test, will receive your results. 

After the testing is complete, patients should limit potential exposure to the virus until the date of their procedure by staying home whenever possible, avoiding crowded areas, practicing physical distancing when around others, frequently washing their hands and wearing a face mask that covers their mouth and nose while at work or in public.

Thank you for taking this important step to protect yourself, our care team, and other patients.

Patients experiencing symptoms can call Healthline at (406) 255-8400 or 1-800-252-1246.

The team of General Surgeons at Billings Clinic are trained to diagnose, treat and manage patients with a broad spectrum of surgical conditions affecting almost any area of the body.

Your surgeon will establish your diagnosis and provide preoperative, operative, and postoperative care. For trauma victims and critically ill patients, a general surgeon is often responsible for the comprehensive management of their care.

Some of the most frequently performed surgical procedures include:

Many of these procedures may be performed using a laparoscope, which allows doctors to perform both minor and complex surgeries with a few small cuts in the abdomen.

Your primary care physician will refer you to one of our board-certified general surgeons. To learn more about our General Surgery physicians, view our online physician directory.
