The office for some reason didn't receive a confirmation from ZocDoc but they were so kind and squeezed me in anyway. Dr. Villanueva was very professional and helpful. I will definitely go back to her for my next checkup.

She is awesome. I don't have words to thank her for all she did through my pregnancy. Kept me informed, calmed, and made me feel that me and my baby were in good hands

Terrible experience. Would not recommend solely because of front desk. Had to jump through many hoops filling out insurance information that I do not have readily available given my company acquisition process switching medical benefits. Front desk requires a copy of insurance card, which I do not have on file in the company transfer process and I spent several hours communicating with my original health insurance, current health insurance because the front desk was not willing to do so and with limited customer engagement.

Poor bedside matter, has quite the attitude. Attempted to follow up with her, she didn't come to the phone, just had her secretary call me back and tell me my insurance didn't cover the services, without any options/ alernatives. Wouldn't go back.

After reading several reviews that weren't exactly favorable, I went to Dr. Villanueva's office with a bit of trepidation. Luckily, I kept an open mind and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Dr. Villanueva was more than personable and thorough. She answered all of my questions and made me feel comfortable by easing the fears that have been plaguing me for the past few weeks. I honestly felt like I was speaking to a friend who I've known for years and I couldn't have been more grateful to feel that way. Dr. Villanueva, her associates and staff were fantastic and I'd absolutely recommend her and her practice to expectant mothers and those looking for an excellent gyn!

I would NOT recommend this practice or this doctor to anyone!!!Dr. Villanueva's, bedside manner is severely lacking. Empathy and Compassion are two things she knows nothing about. In addition, she ordered lab work that I did not approve and now I am stuck with a hufe bill from the lab. I have contacted the office several times and they aren't helpful at all. By all means avoid this place all together. I am very disappointed in the service here probably the worst doctor experience I have ever had. DO NOT GO HERE. YOU will be ripped off, her office billed my insurance company for services when I only went in for an annual routine pap.

Ive had a HORRIBLE experience at Dr. Rachel Villanueva, MD office. I went in for my annual. I waited 45 minutes. Opted to get a full STD screening. THREE people tried to take my blood sample, NONE could get a vein (min you I ate and drank a ton of water before my appointment). One of the woman who tried to take my blood stuck into my arm and literally started to swivel it in my arm as a haphazard way to find my vein. Once all the assistants failed to access a vein (please note that I am an physically active 27 year old biracial woman and I have no medical issues) ,the office then choose to fill out a script for the STD screening to Quest lab (the specific form I had received was for was quest lab and I was advised to make to make an appointment online) . I go to Quest lab and this lab DOES NOT take my insurance. I called the office and asked them how did this happen. The office then tells me that Quest lab should have notified me of the insurance issue. REALLY!!!! This office sent me the INCORRECT script, then proceeds to put the blame elsewhere. The office then informed me that I would have to call on Monday to recieve the correct paperwork. Incompetency level (on a scale of 1-10) is a 10, Customer service ( on a level of 1-10) is a 0. DO NOT BOOK AN APPOINTMENT HERE.

I have had better experiences before. She doesn't listen and cut me off when I was speaking. Didn't feel comfortable with her at all. She made the pap smear's process very uncomfortable. She is knowledgeable but I wish I obtained more info. Sorry, but not my type of gynecologist!

Dr. Villanueva is great! I'm not usually comfortable with OB/GYN visits, but she made me feel comfortable and assured. She took the time to answer my questions about my health and IUDs, and when it came time for the procedure, she walked me through the steps. I would absolutely recommend her.

It was the most horrible experience. I actually cried after. I never been this disrespected by a doctor. First she made me wait long. second she was trying to convince me to do a procedure i did not want and have time for because she took so long. I mentioned that I was on my lunch break, she chastised me for asking a question and for telling her that I was on my lunch break. When asked about different forms on birth control, she mentioned they "don't do that here, and that i should try planned parent hood". I felt belittled and hurt. and extremely discriminated. she made me feel unwelcome, and I assume this is not the first time, she has done this to patients! Please STAY AWAY from Dr. Rachel Villanueva!

The visit was great. She was super attentive and friendly. Officially my GYN forever! My only concern is the following (which is unrelated to her performance as a doctor obviously..): I need to take birth control bc I get bad cramps to the point of passing out. I tried to call her office to get a refill and I had seen her 3 months before and they kept saying I had to go back in. Why!? That makes no sense. Super frustrating.

My recent appointment with Dr. Villanueva was very pleasant. My wait time was a little long, but that was only because it was my first visit to the office and it took a little while to verify insurance, etc. The entire staff, from the reception to nurses, are all extremely polite, efficient and knowledgeable. Unlike most other doctors I have visited, Dr. Villanueva has me come into her office for a consultation before beginning my exam. She was very honest with me about my health and eating habits, but did not make me feel bad - just encouraged and advised me how to do better. Her bedside manner during the exam was lovely, did not make me feel uncomfortable in any way, and she is very thorough in her work. It seems that Dr. Villanueva's office is mainly for women who are expecting, and I was only there for an annual exam (not pregnant, just a check up). But I have no complaints about the doctor, her staff or her practice. I highly recommend Dr. Villanueva to anyone who is looking!
