Dr. Villanueva was very accommodating and the first doctor who actually listened to my problems. Without him I’d still be living in pain. He has excellent bedside manner and explains everything in great detail.

Thank you so much for removing Michael Cox’s gallbladder that was a very tricky & puzzling case. You were very helpful & expained everything perfectly. I’m very glad that you took excellent care of my Dad! Thank you again for everything & saving my Dads life!
