What People Say About Dr. Alex Wills, MD

Consulted with Dr. Willis looking for a new therapist, my doc was retiring. I am still in disbelief about the way I was treated. Arrogant, Cold, uninterested and belittling. I just can't wrap my head around how he is still in practice. Felt like a rapid contestant on Jepordy. He didn't listen, interrupted, made condescending remarks and his demeaner was borderline distain. I was shocked, confused and ultimately left triggered. I strongly suggest anyone trying to find a provider to help and support you through your journey of healing, look somewhere else. This man is dangerous.

I am appalled at the treatment from this 'doctor'. He is dismissive and apathetic at best. Do not give this doctor your money, do not waste your time.

I started going to Dr. Wills in December of 2017. He's much different than other doctors I've seen. He has 30 minute appointments but they feel like they are much longer because we cover so much ground. He breaks things down in an easy way so that I can grasp the problem and resolve it easily. He's very good at leading me through analytical and emotional counseling. I also love his staff who refill my prescriptions easily and take it seriously when I call because I need a sooner appointment

I actually enjoyed my visit with Dr Wills. He's very empathetic, and I could see that he truly cared about what I thought. I feel great now. His office staff is wonderful. I highly recommend him.

The first time I ever saw Dr. Wills, he told me to look into borderline personality disorder because it was where he was leaning with his diagnosis. After doing research I was confident this didn’t apply to me. But when I tried to share this with him, he listed traits of the disorder that applied to me when my behavior was taken out of context. Every mental health professional I’ve seen has been so shocked at the rash diagnosis, especially of a personality disorder, & at the unprofessionalism

Went to see Dr. Wills. Told him my history and what I had tried in the past. Explained to him that I just wasn't able to work. and the depression was as bad as ever. Sent me to therapy I have done multiple times and took me off a med. On follow up I told him the therapy was something I had done many times before, he just told me to watch a youtube video. Spent a bunch of money on something i've done multiple times, no support for withdrawl, or plan to safely discontinue med. Awful exp

I received no help. The doctor spends 80% of the 30-minute appt staring at his laptop and typing busily. When he deigns to speak, he uses thinly-veiled remarks to criticize my Internist, doesn't like the meds I'm on, says he can't do much for me until I change them (none of my meds are controversial; I've taken them for years with no problems). When I spoke, he snapped NOT NOW because he was frantically typing. I will not go back.. I couldn't, in good conscience, recommend this "doctor" at all

If you want to be treated like cattle he's the perfect Doctor for you. After I expressed my distress over my chronic pain his response was handing a referral to a different P.M. Doctor and said, "do you have anymore questions I have another patient waiting." Callous and uncaring. Only saw him twice and both times he ended by saying he had another patient waiting. Thanks for making me feel like I'm a burden to your busy schedule!

Dr Wills is the only doctor that I have seen that has been able to accurately explain my condition in a way that makes sense to me. He is extremely knowledgable, but has amazing bedside manners. I never feel judged or embarrassed. I honestly enjoy our sessions- which is a huge change for me. The progress I have made with him in a short times is incredible.

He made me feel comfortable at 1st. He has no time for his patients. He said things to my mom that I told him not to. He isn't a good guy
