HORRIBLE services, and attention to me. When I asked him about my condition and the surgery options, he said, "well, I will do what I feel is best." Did NOT consider my time, or me as important. Would NOT TRUST him with my life. Made me wait over 1.5 hours each visit.

Expect to wait greater than 2 hours past your appointment time for a very short doctor's appointment. So incredibly disrespectful of his patients' time.

My first visit I waited almost 3 hours! Waiting room was full, and when I did see him, he spent a total of 5 minutes maximum with me. VERY DISAPPOINTED

When I arrived at his office there was not even a seat to be found and I had to sit in the foyer! I need spine surgery!They skipped over me because I didn't hear my name! I was irritated and it was already an hour 1/2 after my appointment! I had to wait 25 more minutes for Dr. V. and in walks another doctor. When Dr.V finally came in he tells me to go get bypass surgery! I am not that big! Other docs. shake their heads. 2 other dr.s are helping me! I will get help than loose a few lbs on my own!

An excellent doctor. He did my lower back surgery and I recommend it for all neurological surgeries. Very professional in this matterI was greatly surprised of my fastest recovery, I had a severe condition and pain, and should not prolong the procedure. I never thought that with just 1 month and a half I would be walking without the aid of a walker or cane and I'm now I'm been able little by little to do my work, following the recommendations of his assistant,I thanks Jeff, Ramirez y Urdaneta

Dr. Villalobos was easy to talk with and understand. He let me ask him questions about my upcoming surgery and answered them in a very easy to understand manner. Dr. Villalobos is very professional and detail oriented. I was stressed and anxious about the thought of neck surgery but Dr. Villalobos relieved my stress, anxiety, and concerns. He made me feel much more optimistic about it. I feel confident that he is the perfect Surgeon for me! I know that I am going to be in the best of hands!

A terrible experience! He seems to be OK but his staff is incompent. I waited over 1 1/2 hours past my appointment time and they acted like that was normal. Saw him briefly and he ordered a MRI. I scheduled the test and drove 45 minutes to the hospital only to find out they ordered the wrong test. Called his office the next morning and left a voicemail explaining the problem. His assistant called back FOUR days later and I explained the situation to him. They never called back (3 months).again.

I called in and spoke to Myra N to inquire about a second opinion for my father who had surgery in July and is still experiencing pain. She proceeded to give me an appointment date with Dr. Villalobos. She then began to ask for my fathers medical history and asked who performed his neurological surgery. Once I advised her who the doctor was she placed me on hold. She then comes back and tells me that the doctor will not see my father, even though she already had provided me with an appointment.

Beware about this Dr. My sister almost die from a bad surgery on her neck he performed. After the survey she complained and he decided not to help her. She went to several Dr's and most of them did not wanted to take her since they did not want to be liable for the malpractice of Dr. Villalobos. She finally got a Dr to perform another surgery to correct her neck, has developed RSD due to the first surgery trauma and is her complications are increasing. Never go to this arrogant and bad Dr!

So far can't complain. Took time to evaluate and explain all possible outcomes of future surgery.

Had brain surgery but was not told full extent of what I would loose mentally after surgery. I would have appreciated full disclosure or at least what to expect. The latest technique was not used.
