    Im only giving her at 2 bc my 1st visit was good and I left feeling positive about my Dr who appeared both respectful & kind. I was referred to Dr. Willard after being hospitalized for a diabetic wound tx. During my 2nd visit i asked some questions about what was needed for wound care @ home. I am blind and need help w wrap. At that point Dr. Willards personality completely changed & she stomped out of the room and told me that if I needed any more help that I needed to see a different doctor.
