In 1996 Dr. Villamarin and her family moved to South Florida. Her postgraduate work inspired a deep thirst for knowledge and provided a solid scientific foundation.

Dr. Villamarin always felt compelled to merge and integrate East and West, science and technology, with philosophy and spirituality. With her background and continuous search for knowledge, she is able to bridge the gap and bring forth the valuable traditions often lost in modern medicine. Her deep caring style and ability to listen and spend time with patients are but a few of her many qualities.
