Sends no time with you. Did not even examine me. Patients are treated like cattle. Waited 4 1/2 hrs to see him for only 2 minutes of his time.

No doubt an excellent surgeon... doesn't explain his right to a God-complex though. Doesn't listen to his patients and prejudges his patients. Be prepared to wait at least 2 to 3 hours for your appointment!

Dr. Venger was working in Nevada when we first met with him. He did my husband's first surgery. He was efficient, knowledgeable and did a fantastic job on the procedure.
