Terrible disposition. Not thorough and indecisive. He contradicts himself from one visit to the next and leaves you feeling terribly confused. Gets very defensive and nasty when you question him. His assistant was also unfriendly.

Dr. Vokshoor is punctual, spends the time to explain and discuss options, does NOT suffer from the God/Surgeon Syndrome. This is a person that you can trust to have your interests at...Read More
