I have been diagnosed with R.S.D.S and was confined to a wheelchair for over 14 month with severe chronic pain and thats when my health provider sent me to see Dr. Vega and he has improved my quality of life with several different procedures and I highly recommend him to anyone diagnosed with a chronic condition as he is very dedicated and professional with many years of experience.

A knowledgeable and compassionate doctor. Dr. Vega is persistent and will not quit until you find relief! His Staff is wonderful and very accommodating to your needs. I would not go anywhere else and travel almost two hours, from Naples, to be treated in this competent and friendly office.

I have been using Dr Vega for over 10 years. He is the best. I moved to Knoxville a few months ago and cannot find a pain management Dr that even comes close to the service and care of Dr Vega.
