Dr. Villanueva completed her residency training in Family Medicine at the Southern Illinois University School of Medicine in Springfield, IL. She has conducted extensive research in the fields of Developmental Neuropsychology and Electrophysiology and recently presented research on opioid conversion and health equity. She is fluent in Polish and English, and in her free time, she enjoys running, cooking, and traveling.
I was born in Szczecin, Poland and my family and I immigrated to the United States when I was a child.
I am a board certified FM physician and have decided to pursue a career as a hospitalist because I enjoy the acuity of inpatient medicine and the variety of medical conditions I can manage. I have a specific interest in geriatric medicine and am part of the Advisory Board for Community Hospice and Palliative Care here in St. Augustine.
In my spare time I enjoy traveling, spending time with my husband, and staying active by taking advantage of the Florida weather.
