    *Dr. Villano introduced himself by handing us his business card, no introduction even with his name or hello or a handshake. Rude! At one point in our visit he told me he had 25 patients that HAD cancer that he had to see that day making me feel like my visit and my lesion in my brain was NOT important to him, because we don't know what it is. He told us to go to South Western TX to have a test to find out what it was, REALLY!

    Was fairly disappointed with his willingness to discuss my questions. Felt like his 'bedside manor' was poor
