Dr. Villagro is very professional and he made sure that my baby and I were accomodated. He also provided us withfree formula samples due to breastfeeding issues.

Such a great staff! And Dr. Villagra is great! Was super kind to my child, very informative and spent ample timeexplaining things. The nurses were amazing, putting my daughter at ease. -and a special thanks to the front receptionist. She helped find our Medicare insurance info and did what so many others couldn’t! And it made a big difference! Can’t recommend them higher!

Our first appointment went very smoothly. Although the doctor seemed brushed and had many patients, he had spent quite a bit of time describing the treatment plans and the next steps. Very friendly and ? good sense of humor. I really like the front desk personnel. When I asked for a piece of paper to take notes on, the front desk person even offered me a board. it got a bit crowded in the wait room, and I did feel a bit rushed which is a gift expected in traditional medicine nowadays oh, there isn't a luxury of talking to the doctor and getting into in-depth conversation about health.

Dr. Villagra is wonderful and understanding, his bedside manner is to be appreciated and after visiting him since 2015, it is still amazing each time. The wait time was the only downside to my visit.

Dr. Villarga was very personable and my 3.5 yr old son connected with him right away. The staff were very friendly as well, and the wait time was less than what one would expect in a typical pediatrician's office. I would highly recommend.

If you don't hear anything from them call to confirm you appointment I the system. I booked through zoc doc and they said that sometimes it allows you to book but the appointment isn't really available. I don't know how true that is.

This gentleman is great! Excellent connection immediately. Reassuring if there are concerns and if the new was negative I feel as though he would know how to present it so that you could accept it.

Excellent doctor, not so pleasant front desk. Attitude is so important if you are the front office that represents the doctor. Bad customer service should not get in the way of such superior physician care, but today it did, I was unable to make my appointment. The front desk was supposed to send me an email link to book appointments, never did. Disappointing.

I absolutely love Dr. Villagra for my children. He is by far the BEST PEDIATRICIAN I've ever had. I love the way he interacts with the kids, and takes the time to explain everything to my husband and I no matter how many questions we have. He handles the children with care. I will never forget my first visit, he came out to greet us and was so down to earth and friendly, my girls took to him immediately. He is not just a Dr in a white lab coat, but a professional who makes everything better in the eyes of my little ones. Thank you so much for all you do Dr. Villagra!!!
