I came to Dr. Villanova after months of traditional healthcare proved to be ineffective in treating my medical conditions [hypertension, irritable bowel syndrome, insomnia]. Although I [had] never used Eastern medicine to treat medical issues, a trusted friend recommended acupuncture as a possible solution. Dr. Villanova proved on my first visit to be the most compassionate doctor I have ever met and truly understood my overall health condition. She openly shared her diverse knowledge of medicine and took the time to use the best methods to treat my medical conditions. Within 24 hours, I felt tremendous relief and continued to improve after each visit with her. I am truly grateful to have met of Dr. Villanova and will continue to seek her expertise; she is truly one of a kind.     SS, Raleigh NC
