in Taos, NM |
Prospective patients need to now that this person is the most empty, uncaring person I've encountered in any profession. She makes her own rules that suit her best interests and doesn't see patients as people, just another payment. She knows her science but has absolutely no empathy or compassion. She'll draw out visits/treatment to milk insurance reimbursement. If you have no choice, she might not let you die. Depends on what's in it for her.

Dr. Van Willigen has always taken the time necessary to fully understand my situation and work towards a common sense solution. She has changed my medications to ones that were more effective for me and analyzed the results after each change.

She is professional and formal but seems very unwelcoming to her patient. She is also judgmental on appearance for anyone who may look different. During my recent visit she completely disregarded a diagnosis from a hospital without explanation or answering my questions. I feel like I was brushed off without my symptoms being taken seriously. My previous visits have had similar outcomes.
