Dr. Rachel is no nonsense, but she is extremely caring and well researched. She diagnosed an issue that probably has been brewing for some time in my first visit. I will definitely be adding her as my regular GYN!

One of those doctors who tries to get you out the door as soon as possible. Did not take the time to listen to my needs. I have not been to another OBGYN yet in the city because of this horrible experience.

Amazing to find a reproductive healthcare provider who truly understands issues unique to women. She took the time to talk to me about all of my options for birth control, various alternative menstrual products, and genetic testing to consider. The appointment never once felt rushed.

Receptionist had me filling out paperwork right when I got there, so I saw the doctor just five minutes after our appointment was scheduled (I think this is fair because it was my first time seeing this doctor). Dr Villanueva met with me first in her office to discuss my medical history and current concerns. She was very nice and professional. We then went to an exam room (one downside of the visit! Exam table faced the door so if anyone walked in they would have had a nice show! But it was a small room so I don't think they could have turned the table any other way, unfortunately.) doctor was super professional with examination and explaining next steps. Took my experiences into consideration when creating a plan- which is much appreciated because many doctors are hesitant to believe patients about pain. Very happy with my visit and would definitely recommend to others.

Dr. Villaneuva is a decent doctor, but she was bit condescending both times I went to see her. She made me feel that I was ridiculous for even coming into see her for my condition. For me, I prefer someone who is a bit more slow paced, better listener especially for a gynocologist.

An OB-GYN should be the most important doctor in a woman's life and she's the worst I've ever encounter. If you need a quick annual follow-up she might be ok beside her terrible bedside manners, but if you want answers, if you have concerns or simply if you seek a human being as a doctor, just don't go to her. My husband and I are trying to conceive for more than 15 months and she never took interest in our case. I had a miscarriage last February and not even she never offered at least a sense of compassion, she has completely forgotten about it when I called for a follow up this month! When I asked her for a hormonal check-up just to check that everything was ok with me, she told me she was a specialist of pregnant women and that I needed to go see a fertility specialist...nice! Do yourself a favor and go see someone who actually cares about you.

It was very difficult to get in touch with their office to adjust appointments or connect with the doctor. I tried over 10 times at various times/days and finally chose a new gyno to avoid the communications issues. If you can connect, good office and doctor!

Very professional, knowledgeable and holds you accountable for how you progress throughout your pregnancy. I love how she explains every single procedure, test and the importance of every appointment you have with her and her team. I'm sad she doesn't delivery anymore but I'm very comfortable seeing Dr. Villanueva and meeting some of the other doctors in her office that will deliver my baby.

This doctor will get zero stars from me. I came to see her for my almost 8 week prenatal appointment. My husband and had a 4:30 appointment. To which we arrived at 4 p.m. she did not call us until 5:20. The staff at the front desk as well as the phlebotomist was great. Dr. Villanueva was busy talking to someone when we came in. She seemed to be preoccupied. She was not very friendly. We came from a great fertility clinic with great doctor's with personality. They also cared about their patients. She seemed to be challenging me. She asked a question, I would answer her and the response was never to get satisfaction. After she examined me she sent me to get an ultrasound. Where I had to ask the nurse of if we can hear the baby's heart beat. Later on when I express my concern to the doctor about this , as well as feeling rushed she was very cold. I said I can't speak for anyone else but that is my experience with you. I think it's best that we don't go any further and I find another doctor that I'm satisfied with. She said okay I'm not here to make you feel good or like me. I said say no more. We will end this appointment and future appointments with you right here. She is very condescending, she did not read 65 page file that I sent her office previously because she kept asking me things that where already documented. Pad smear- done. She told me no she only see' s the 2013 one. Later on she finds it. No apologie at all. Just matter of fact. Please people save your time. Do not go see her. After trying to conceive for almost 8 years and finally getting pregnant we did not want to cheapen our journey by staying with her.

Dr. Villanueva spent a lot of time asking helpful question to understand my concerns and health issues. I sincerely appreciate her effort to take the time to get to know my health status (not just vitals and a hurried look at charts). It's just a relief to know that there are doctors in the city willing to think through information and communicate their analysis with me too. Highly recommended!!

Dr. Villanueva's bedside manner was excellent. She also answered all of my questions in a way that was comprehensible to a lay patient. Lastly, she was very thorough and careful in her examination. Will continue with her as my gynecologist and recommend others to do the same! My only criticism would be that there was a bit of a wait - I arrived 20 minutes early, as requested. But I still went in to see the RN 15 minutes after my appt was supposed to start, and then saw the doctor another 20 min after that.

Dr Villanueva was great! She has such a cheerful voice. She took time to explain everything and answer all my questions. She is not a delivering doctor anymore, which had me hesitating before I saw her, but the fact that she was available anytime (everyday, as opposed to other doctors who are in and out) was quite reassuring. She told me that she would see me for the first few months and transfer me to a delivering doctor; this did not bother me so much since you don't really know who will be delivering your baby anyways. I was very happy with her and will be going back.
