This company herds u thru like cattle. Not a caring atmosphere. I've only seen Doc. once, they then have nurses see you. He reduced my pain Rx to the point I'm in nearly constant pain. I live more than an hour away. Bad Dr. Try & find diff Dr to treat you.

I in fact put the wrong date for my very first appointment and when I called they re-scheduled me for a later time that same day. The staff was very professional and friendly and helpfull Dr. Villareal was caring and personable. He explained my condition to me in a way that was easy to understand and actually discussed several options with me. This hasn't happened before. I highly recommend this doctor and his staff! They are all to a person fantastic

Excellent experience. The staff was courteous and very professional. Facilities were clean, and wait was reasonable considering the number of patients. Dr. Villareal took his time with me and explained everything in detail. He answered all my questions and put me at ease. Would definitely use him again for back injections.

Everyone was extremely courteous. I had no problems getting an appointment, upon arrival I was met with friendly receptionist, which I find is not always the case. The wait time was shorter than I had expected. The nurses were gracious as I am always trying to cut up with them & sometimes they act like you are a bother, but they were kind enough to indulge me & even cut up with me. Dr. Villarreal was pleasant, answered my questions, gave me options then planned out the best course of action.

Waste of time. A lot of paperwork for nothing. He only assumes you want meds. He doesn't offer any suggestions or help. He wrote he suggested exercise and physical therapy to make himself look good. He never suggested any such thing. Complete Phony. I would not recommend to anyone nor would I trust his judgment. He doesn't even listen to you. His mind is elsewhere. It was very uncomfortable there, very hot place. We wasted 3 hours waiting, filling out paperwork etc.. for Nothing.
in Anthony, NM |
Listens well; very courteous and friendly; knowledgeable about issues of pain and treatment

Quick to assume you are pill seeking. I do not trust his opinion
