      Dr. Willen is fantastic. I'm amazed how she remembers patients, listens to them, and stays very down to earth. She has done amazing things for our daughter's eye health over the past 12 years and we're very happy every time we visit her. Even with minor concerns we mention, she listens and provides solid answers to anything we bring up. Her bedside manner is the best of any doctor we see in our family.
