Comments from Students: 

"Highest commendations to Dr. Willingham. She is not only a tremendous provider who is loved by her patients but she is a thorough and dedicated teacher not only about medical knowledge but about the technical/legal/business aspects."

Dr. Willingham has great relationships with her patients, is thorough, shares her thought process which improves students' clinical thinking skills, aware of the most current research and recommendations, calm and patient.  I really enjoyed El Dorado - learned many new things every day and had a good time."

"The entire staff treated me like a member of the group. My time and my thoughts were respected"

“Dr. Willingham's strength is maintaining a supportive safe environment while driving your clinical evaluation skills well past where you start on your first day. She can deconstruct your bad habits and never gets impatient or annoyed. She makes her expectations clear and always checks in to see if the student feels well supported and if the student is getting enough of what they need to learn. She is an awesome teacher, drives self-guided learning with every patient.”

“Dr. Willingham's patients consistently comment on how great of a physician she is. I believe this speaks volumes to her ability to teach and inspire others to either pursue or embrace FCM as a career or future colleagues. Her feedback was always relevant and useful, and she made my exposure to different physical exams and chief complaints a priority. I never felt like I was in the way, and Dr. Willingham made me feel like an important member of the team. Her happiness, commitment to her family, and insight into a career in medicine were inspiring and invaluable.”
