She is an example of what a physician should be right down to her suggestions as well as her honest thoughts that even though may be what you want to hear hse has a way of talking with patients that make them feel at ease; she is genuine in her concern and knows her limits; not afraid to work with other professionals but does not refer for unnecessary tests/procedures. Great sense of humor. If she keeps you waiting, don't fret, you will be given the same attention that she gave the last patient she saw, she is very patient, caring, compassionate, excellent professional. congratulations for being the Family Physician of the Year in Illinois State.

PREVIOUS EMPLOYEE RATINGYou do not need the stress nor the disrespect that this place represents. FRONT DESK staff and OFFICE MANAGER ASSISTANT are complete TROLLS!!!! Disrespectful and completely entitled staff who do not deserve the positions that they hold. I have been a "CUSTOMER" for 18 years after being an employee.I am so disappointed The office manager and her troll are horrible and let me tell you about the front desk staff the black lady sorry if it is not political correct is a complete jerk and RUDE I have been coming to this doctor when they practiced out of St. Therese and I have never been treated in such a way until these new trolls appeared. I mean the original office manager Judy was ok But who in the world is her assistant? And why would this company lower themselves and hire these ridiculous people? You would think that this office would be a tad professional 1. if you have a CLIENT/PATIENT for 18 plus years and they missed an appointment because the troll that answers the phones tells you a time that is inaccurate don't blame the CUSTOMER! Blame the staff. 3 different occasions?!?! How Stupid. Honestly ask yourself who in the right mind would miss a HIGH SCHOOL PHYSICAL? 18 years you would think that this staff would cut them some slack. But that is not the case. 2. if you have an office manager assistant that thinks HER CRAP doesn't stink and has the audacity to hang up on you because the CUSTOMER proves her wrong and the FRONT DESK wrong. But disrespectfully tells you that it is your problem and doesn't try to even understand that we have been going here longer than anyone that has worked there then you need to be fired. Again who in the right mind parent wise would miss a HIGH SCHOOL PHYSICAL right before school starts? Just completely appalled LASTLY I use to work here I use to work here when they were at Saint Theresa (Vista off Washington) AND I AM TELLING YOU THAT YOU AND YOUR CHILD(REN) DESERVE BETTER!!

Not the caliber that I expect from North Shore. I waited 15 minutes to be seen and another 1/2 hour in the exam room. I would probably still be sitting there if I didn't go out to the nurse station to ask when I would be seen. For the amount that we American's are paying in quality health care, I do not appreciate that my time is of no consequence to this doctor. Wonder what would have happened if I showed up 45 minutes late????

Dr. Villavicencio is a wonderful physician the way she explains things and took time with me as well as my children over the last year is unique. She never rushed me or made me feel like she was on a schedule. Her knowledge and bedside manner is excellent I highly recommend her.

I am a young mother and it is so refreshing to have my kids seen by the person who I saw as a child. Just like years ago, He is so personable and still has the caring demeanor that I received as a child. I am able to see my children ease into a doctors appt. which can be challenging and anxiety provoking! The minute I walked into the door, you can tell that they care and the ease of that makes me know that the kids are are in good hands.

When it comes to doctors I am the type that is very polite and very patient. This office takes the cake when it comes to poor bedside manners and ridiculous rules. I was given the physicians name by a friend. So when i had my child i let the hospital know the name of the doctor, and he did not make calls to the hospital (which is ok, some doctors don't) so i decided to follow up with him after. 1st time i went we filled out forms and was asked to make the co pay, and it was cash or check only (Once again, ok, but most offices do have credit card machines) the lady that took my money was rude. I then waited to meet the doctor and when we were placed in a room a doctor came in, just not my doctor (that i have never met and this was suppose to be the 1st time meeting). I asked questions and then since we opted out for vac. until he is older we received a comparison of vaccination side effects to air and water. We were taken aback, but we figured that it was just this doctor. So we came in for a second visit, to check on our sons weight. Still, a different doctor then the one that we asked for (If we were going to not be seeing our doctor it would be nice to know), so we talked to the same doctor that we saw the 1st time. We ended having to come back a 3rd time. When asked to sit in the doctors office a nice woman asked me if i had a specific doctor i would like to see. I said yes, i would like to see my doctor. So i waited, and waited, and waited. Finally i met my doctor that my friend referred me too. He came in, barely looked at my chart, told me that my baby lost weight (which is incorrect since we did a 3 day observation and he gained 5 ounces (+1/-1) since the last time he was seen. He was short with me and very rude. Then said that we would start shots at his 1 month check up (Which the alternate vac. was listed on my chart) which we opted out until he was older. I cannot express how upset i felt after going to this office. So i started to look for another doctor, since my son has a cold, i called over to the office (which i was on hold for a while) and then i asked if they could fax over his records since i had an appt. today. They said that they couldn't and that it would be a 15 dollar charge and i would physically have to pick it up. So now i have to carry in a sick child 30 min away and then drive another hr to see a doctor that will actually read my chart. Minus the staff, the doctors, the non credit card payment option, this place was wonderful.
Tips & Advices
This depends on the facility. Patients should call to find out if they'll need a referral from their physician prior to making an appointment.
Aside from hyperbaric oxygen treatment, most wound care centers offer:
  • Debridement: The removal of dead skin and tissue surrounding the wound. This can be done surgically, using a whirlpool bath, syringes, enzymes that dissolve the tissue, or wet dressings that dry on the wound and absorb the dead tissue.
  • Dressing: Wrapping the wound in a protective film, gauze, gel, or foam.
  • Compression stockings: Tight-fitted fabric sheaths that encourage blood flow.
  • Artificial skin: A covering that is applied to the wound for several days as it heals.
  • Ultrasound: The use of sound waves to promote healing.
  • Growth factor therapy: The use of materials naturally produced by the body to encourage quick cell growth.
  • Negative pressure therapy: Creating a vacuum around a wound to encourage faster blood flow to the area.
Depending on where the treatment is administered, hyperbaric oxygen treatment  can cost $100- $1,000. After insurance is applied, patients may have a copay of $10 -$50 or a coinsurance fee of 10 percent to 50 percent.
Most wounds should heal within two to six weeks. An individual should seek chronic wound treatment if a wound has not begun to heal after two weeks or is not completely healed after six.
Most health insurance plans cover wound care. Patients should check with the clinic and their health insurance provider before seeking treatment to be sure.
