VERY good doctor. He is all about the facts and is quick to shut your mind off possible diagnosis. He is all about the patient, he doesnt let your mind wander and is very caring and quick with results.

If you ever want a biopsy I'd definitely choose someone else especially with cancer my dad is dead now because this man did the biopsy on my father and my father had cancer his cancer markers were going down until dr Leo did his biopsy after the biopsy he performed on my dad a massive tumor bump popped up out of no where and grew in size rapidly this dr took a look at it and told his assistant to call my dad and say he didn't want any part of it when he was the one who did the biopsy awful perso

Kind, compassionate, explains procedures, tests and test results and expectations, allows the patient and family to ask as many questions as they need, and very highly trained and skilled, these are a few qualities of Dr. Villegas. He did a very complicated repair of my bile duct system that had been damaged by a different doctor and different surgery. Should you need a liver specialist no need to travel outside the local area.

I would recommend Dr. Villegas because he is highly qualified and is the only surgeon that I have been able to find in the area that has performed Whipple procedure numerous times successfully. He is a truly talented surgeon, Who will take you through a very complicated operation from beginning to end. 5 star in my book. ??

His surgical skills were second to none, with the exception of the incisional hernia I knoiw have that must be eventually be re-worked on. Pain after surgery was left uncontrolled over 2 nurse shifts. Nurses agreed, Dr did not. Room was not properly disinfected. Cleaning lady came in daily and pushed the same old cloth around spreading germs. I endded up returning to the ER about 4 days later with severe infection/Rigors which appeared personnel on hand did not know how to swifty handle.
