Patient Comments (3)
in El Paso, TX, USA |
He's the best neurosurgeon in El Paso. He has done surgery on my back and my mom previously and would not trust anyone but Dr. V to do the job.
El Paso, TX |
Always seems in a hurry and doesn't communicate or provide proper explanation to patients. I know doctors are very busy in my area but this one did not even sit down and was in the rooms? with me for less than 2 minutes. Trigger happy when it comes to surgeries. In that two minutes he decided on a back surgery. For me only thing he cared about was doing the surgery and making the money. So beware

Direct and to the point...diagnosed problem quickly. Professional and reassuring.
