Doctors are good, however, office is chaos. Wait at least an hour to be seen. Nurse sent wrong RX to pharmacy which took 4 days to fix. She did not document that I needed to see a neurologist per Dr Vera so no neurologist would give me an appt. Still trying to resolve this 2 weeks later after having called twice, faxing, emailing and stopping in the office to sign a release. I want to go elsewhere but they won't follow through on sending records even with a release signed. Don't do it.

I HAVE SEEN DR. V FOR 20 YEARS I LIKE HIM VERY MUCJ. HE IS A WARM AND CARING PERSON. I WOULD RECOMMEND HIM TO ANYONE.

Office is horrible. Long waits and staff is too busy to explain things. Dr Vera is paternalistic and makes decisions for you without explaining options. For example, I asked him why I could not just have the surgery for my thyroid (National Institutes of Health recommends surgery in cases like mine regardless of biopsy results) instead of having these painful biopsies over and over, and he said I did not want to have a scar, tracing his finger across my neck. No respect for patient intelligence.

The staff is not very efficient. They call to confirm an appointment I showed up on time, but found out later the appoint time is wrong and ended up waiting for 1.5 hours with not explanation as to why. The staff does not call back. can't find doctors instructions. unwilling to help. They would not even call the pharmacy back to come up with a solution. Either they need more help or a staff that is trained better. The doctor may be committed to the patient but the staff is not.

Dr. Vera is a very thorough doctor. He takes time with his patients and askes your opinion of why you are there, and what you would like as the outcome of his care. Dr. Vera is very direct about his approach to my care, and exactly what he saw as some of the life changes I needed to make in order to achieve success. He then ordered several tests to see exactly what my medical issues were. Dr. Vera does not candy coat anything. If you want a doctor who does, he may not be the dr. for you.

I find him to be self righteous, condescending, egotistical and dismissive of my symptoms. A sorry excuse for a doctor!
in Deland, FL |
Dr.V is a very caring, extremely thorough doctor. He took the time need to properly diagnose my problem and is currently fixing me. If I have a problem he makes sure I'm seen right away.
Appointment on the dot. No waiting. Very thorough.
Ormond Beach, FL |
Very poor response time to emails or phone requests - two weeks or more two different times. Once for clarification on medicine regime, once for a bloodwork order. Staff seems disorganized.
