Patient Comments (8)
in Fleming Island, FL |
After relocating from Fort Myers, Florida to Fleming Island, Florida I conducted research on pain management specialists. I was being treated for severe back pain due to herniated discs and arthritis. Dr. Michael Willens was highly recommended by my specialist in Fort Myers. Previous treatments only helped reduce the pain on a temporary basis. Dr. Willens diagnosis gave me hope that I could be treated in a way that would lead me to long term relief and resume a normal life style.

Dr. Willens and his staff have brought me from thinking of disability to being able to continue working, his demeanor along with his skills make every appointment very relaxing. He also has a great physical therapist who is very knowledgeable and also every bit the professional that Dr. Willens is. I recommend anyone with pain management needs or physical therapy to call or stop by to make an appointment!!!

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!!
in Marianna Florida |
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! ??
