I am a 75 year old Marine Disabled Viet Nam vet and pretty damned outspoken about everything. I had terrible pain in my right shoulder caused by lot of arthritis, severely torn rotator cuff and a right shoulder replacement that caused me even more pain. Dr. V. told me what he was going to do (try to eliminate most of my pain and make my shoulder as mobile as possible. He did better than tha on both counts. Pain is gone and arm is very mobile for most things. Thx Dr. V.

I met Dr. Villacis the day before my surgery. I immediately felt comfortable with him as he explained what was going to happen. It’s only been 3 days since my surgery & the pain I am feeling now is healing. Dr. Villacis was so caring & genuine when talking with me, never in a hurry. Pat his nurse in clinic is also very caring. She was like my angel helping me through everything. Very positive experience in a not so positive situation.

Wonderful experience. After a thorough exam (motion / strength tests and MRI) Dr. Villacis took his time in explaining the results and the recommended surgery. He even made a personal phone call on my behalf to my insurance provider to ensure the surgery would be covered under my plan. I couldn't be happier with the results.

I went to Dr. Villacis as a second opinion on my torn tendon in my right arm. I liked Dr. Villacis so much that I chose him to do the surgery to reattach the torn tendon. He was very attentive and answered every question I had. The surgery went just like he said it would with no complications. He was just wonderful. He did a terrific job! He even called me on Thanksgiving day (the day after my surgery) to see how I was doing. I would highly recommend Dr. Villacis for any surgery.
