Louisville, KY |
I have seen Dr. Villanueva for several years. He has connected me with the newest technology and treatment procedures available for my issue. He has expert knowledge and will always research and go the extra mile to ensure he is taking the appropriate steps in his treatment plan. I cannot say enough positive about Dr. Villanueva and he is absolutely kind and caring when you talk to him.
in Milltown IN |
He spent at least 45 minutes explaining what he saw in my MRI. He answered all questions we asked. He told about risks involved. I had waited to do this procedure because of hearing stories of people who were disappointed in results of their surgery. (Dr.Villanueva was not there dr.) Because I am a retired teacher I had asked several of my former students who are now nurses for recommendations. Dr. Villanueva was the top choice of three who worked in this area. I am very satisfied with results.
