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.

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.

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.
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.
