What Patients are Saying About Dr. Alan Villavicencio, MD

Best decision I ever made for neck fusion with Dr V. I am so pleased with its outcome after two years and have resumed normal activities after 2 years including dancing.

— Dr. Villavicencio Patient

I had disc replacement surgery. The surgery went well with minimal discomfort or pain. Everyone was supportive and were there when I had questions. This is my second surgery with Dr. V and his team and I would never go anywhere else.
