Dr Bryan Villar

Get to Know Your Physicians

Commitment to his community extends far beyond Bryan Villar, MD,’s patients at Bayhealth Primary Care, Georgetown. In the decade that he’s served as a Bayhealth physician, he’s been an active board member at The Jefferson School, a non-sectarian private school serving Sussex County students from pre-kindergarten through 8th grade. 

Quality education is obviously very important to Dr. Villar, and he believes that the school is attractive to other physicians who may be considering a Bayhealth practice. “I’m most proud of being on the school board. I know new doctors ask about the school system, and I’m trying to get the word out about The Jefferson School. I want the school name known,” he added. “I want to make sure kids get a good education.” 

One of Dr. Villar’s sons attended The Jefferson School, and has moved on to the Sussex Academy; his younger son, age 9, is a student there. By sponsoring a recreational-league soccer team, Dr. Villar believes he is not only supporting youth activities, but also “promoting opportunities for kids to go outside and be active,” he said. 

In addition, former Gov. Jack Markell appointed Dr. Villar to the Delaware Board of Medical Licensure & Discipline in 2016. The 16-member board — eight physicians and eight lay members — review case complaints involving professional standards. “It makes me feel good. It’s my own little part in serving the state,” he said. 

During his 10 years of living in Sussex County, Dr. Villar has become a vocal advocate for southern Delaware and for Bayhealth. The community may not be aware that he has also served as chairman of the Family Medicine department and treasurer of the Medical Executive Committee at Bayhealth. 

Recently, when the Delaware Health Resources Board hosted a public hearing about Bayhealth’s proposed Route 9 Emergency Center, Dr. Villar spoke in support of the project. 

“I support the Bayhealth expansion in Sussex County because our community is growing, and it’s important for everyone to have access to healthcare,” he said. 

We thank and recognize Dr. Villar for his commitment not only to his family medicine practice and to the community as a whole, but also to the future of Bayhealth.
