    My husband is a patient of Dr Willens. When he first started going to him, he had so much back pain that he had to be taken into the office in a wheel chair. He had even stopped driving. Now he only uses a cane when he is outdoors for balance and has been living a normal life style. He was able to go a little over a yr. after his first treatments before his pain started coming back again. His treatments have been life changing.

    He was very thorough - I never felt rushed. His office staff is so friendly and helpful. I'm scheduled for an epidural and know that I am in great hands. Thanks Dr. Willens and staff!!

    Dr. Willens and his wonderful, compassionate staff have given me back my quality of life. I've been to many pain management doctors over the years and he is by far the BEST at what he does. He and his staff genuinely care about my health. It's refreshing to know that I have finally found a doctor who is far more advanced than other doctors in his field. I can't express how thankful I am to have him as my pain management doctor. I have nothing but respect and gratitude for him and his staff! ??
