[...] there was a patient that missed her appointment time and they found a way to fit her in. The receptionist was very professional and some new patients trying to check in were getting frustrated. I felt bad for her but she handled things perfectly.

Dr. Villegas is the most caring and compassionate primary doctor I have ever had. I have already referred to my best friend and she thinks the same as I do.
