      Dr. Willin is very thorough, she apologized several times for the long wait. She told us the risks/concerns she had with our son and his treatment. We opted to wait on surgery, maybe try glasses after the next visit. She did a great job and was very efficient. She did not waste our time while in the room with us.

      I would recommend *Dr. Willen, just not the eye clinic. You are guaranteed to be there for almost two hours every time.

      I don't think I've met a better doctor than Dr. Willen in all my 43 years. She was so kind, patient, and understanding. She looked into my issue thoroughly, and finally gave me an answer I'd been looking for. She explained everything carefully and made sure I was comfortable with my treatment plan. She answered every single question I had.
