    My husband and I are so very thankful to Dr. Villa for his outstanding and genuine care. He recently conducted a procedure to identify the type of cancer for tumors in my husbands stomach (possibility of two different cancers, one more treatable than the other). Dr. Villa was wonderful, he was very informative, professional and has a great disposition. He also cared enough to call with the results as soon he had them (which was way sooner than we expected). We are so very touched and thankful.

    The doctor took the time to explain everything to me. He was kind and I never felt like he was rushing thru anything. Wish all doctors were like him. He personally took the time to review all results. He did a great job.

    This was my first colonoscopy that I should have done 9 years ago but put off. I did get lucky and had no problems. From my previous surgical experiences, I elected to have it done without any anesthesia or pain medicine as I get too easily sedated and it takes too many hours for me to feel normal again. I would say on the 1 - 10 pain scale there was briefly a 2-3. Mostly there was just short tolerable pressures. The whole procedure might have been 30 minutes. Then I spent 10 minutes in recovery
