Review for Dr. Vaught

Incompetent at best when he doesn't even listen to other healthcare professionals that recommended a biopsy after performing an ultrasound; however, he did recommend a mammogram in 6 months. Mom would still be alive today if he could figure out how to care for patients like his nurse practitioner.

Don't visit if you want to live Oct 03 2020

Review for Dr. Schabbing

Dr. Vaught restored my quality of life. He and his staff are kind, courteous and professional. I highly recommend him and Regional Brain and Spine.
