She takes the time to truly listen to your concerns and find the best treatment option. I feel like I had multiple issues going on simultaneously, but she was able to find what worked for me. And when something didn't work, we would try something different together. I feel like she's on my team, if...more

Dr. Villafane is amazing. She completely turned my anxiety around. She listens, discusses, and actually addresses concerns and has a conversation, which I have found is rare in psychiatrists. The girl who works at the front desk is also so sweet and kind and always brightened my day. I would...more

Disregarded my diagnosis of bipolar based on the fact that I didn't have a manic episode in which I spent thousands of dollars. That is pretty hard to do when you live with your mom and have no job. 3 other doctors had confirmed my diagnosis.

Vanna, I haven't seen patients in Palm Bay since 12/2012, therefore I don't remember you. I am shocked to have left a patient down as you describe, and wish you would have talked to me then. I welcome criticism if it will make me better. I have actually developed a timeline and a mood chart to properly diagnose bipolar! If you give me the opportunity, I will be delighted to show you that I might have had a bad day when I met you, but that I am not a careless Dr. Please e-mail drv@villafanemd.com
