Very kind and easy to talk to very caring. I was upset bringing test results from a previous scan and after our conversation I was very comfortable with the recommended treatment plan.

Waited too long to be seen. Asst. made copies of previous MRI's and records. Finally she came in, did a 30 to 1 min. sec. assessment and said I would need updated MRI's. Then left. I was charged over $200. WITH insurance for this 30 sec to 1 min. evaluation. Ridiculous!

Very competent doctor. Not very personable and could spend more time getting to know and bond with her patience. That would make her top rated. Her staff when having a medical procedure are off the charts awesome.

I have been a patient of Dr. Willett's since 2007 and she is the first doctor to take the time to look for the source of my pain and other symptoms that started in my teens..she ordered test and reviewed the results ordered more test all while assuring me that despite many other doctors opinion that my symptoms were not just in my head..and ultimately determined that I have a autoimmune disease that has been destroying my joints and nerves since 1985. Her diagnosis helped me get SSDI..5 stars

I was not impressed with Dr. Willett at all. She seemed disinterested in my severe sciatica, and she had the MRI Imaging report to refer to, but ignored it. When she examined my back, it was a nothing exam. All she communicated was to get on the schedule for an epidural injection. I would not recommend her to anyone.

Dr. Willett is like a doc in the box. She doesn't seem to have any interest in really finding out what is wrong with the patient. She just gave me the equivalent of ibuprofen and sent me on my way. She spent about ten minutes in the room total. She was also quite condescending when she talks to you. I wouldn't bring my dog to her to be treated. I expected so much more from a group like Resurgens.
