Dr. Willens is a compassionate doctor with a real desire to make his patients well. Instead of just writing scripts and showing you the door he solicits your input on prior treatment, why or why not it might have worked and is there a particular path you might want him to incorporate in his treatment plan.

I have been seeing Dr. Willens for the past year and he is very compassionate and caring about giving the best care to the patient. I was impressed with his knowledge on my first visit. I have had chronic pain for the last 18 years from a bad accident. We moved here from Michigan 2 years ago and it took me over a year to find a good doctor. In my opinion, Dr. Willens is a fantastic, caring doctor. I would highly recommend him to anyone who has bad pain issues. He is the best!

I have been through many doctors before Dr. Willens, I was and am still completely amazed every time I have an appointment or simply call his office. The staff are always friendly and willing to help and do help unlike other offices I’ve dealt with. Dr. Willens is always concerned about my wellbeing and making sure my quality of life is the best it can be!

What a cocky jerk! Won’t let you speak, just shoots you up with an unidentifiable substance while you try to eek out questions. Drops patients if they are depressed. Gets you hooked on all kinds of pills and then is so disrespectful if he doesn’t like the outcome he drops you after years of this abuse- through some office paperwork that they don’t want you to read, just sign it. And he never reappears. Complete waste of time money and stress.

Every appointment that i had with Dr. Willens ended with me still having questions for him while he was exiting the room. It is like he has an allotted amount of minutes for each patient and when that time is up you are out of luck if you are not not finished talking with him. There are no exceptions to this, this happened every single time. Dr. Willens really needs to work on that. Outside of that he is a really nice guy, and very knowledgeable.

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.

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.

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! ??
