I have seen Dr. Villegas for over 10 years and she has always been extremely responsive to my family's needs. She is kind, caring and compassionate. Any issues I have brought up for myself or children she has looked into and I feel confident in her explanation and/or doctors she has referred us to.

I was told that I would get my result for my [...] test within 2 days after the visit to the doctors. I waited 3 days to hear back from my doctor or her medical assistant to follow up with me but did not hear anything back from them. [...] I called the following day only to find out that the test was not run and they could not explained to me why that was. I took [...] only to find out that they do not have any answer for me on what was causing my condition. It was not a fun experience to was anxiously for the result while feeling miserable caused by the [...] that was given to me. I am very unhappy about this whole experience.

The provider demonstrated interest and was helpful to the degree that she had time to deal with my issues in between entering data in the computer - it feels like that was the most important task and that is not typical to this provider, but with most doctors lately.

They were out of flu shots which was frustrating. We also waiting almost 1/2 hour between the dr.'s exam and giving my son his shots. It was a long time to wait especially since he was nervous about getting shots.

My provider is great and there arent any problems however the wait time is way too long. I have never been seen at the time of my scheduled appointment and it's very frustrating. I can see a little wait but not in excessive of 30 minutes. Also, the MA is not very sympathetic or compassionate. She is very rigid and does not explain things well. A positive attitude can go a long way...
