Dr Vekovius takes care of my son. He diagnosed him with Multiple Sclerosis. He has been there and has taken time to explain what was happening and our prognosis and has just been a Godsend. Thank you for your compassionate care Dr V!

Dr. Vekovius figured out what was going on with me! He is great! I was having headaches and pain... He said I had dry eyes- he treated me and I haven't had pain or headaches as bad since. He is very thorough!

The receptionist gave me a same day appointment at 2pm. i was treated by the Dr and the staff as an extreme imposition since I was not hurting or an emergency. I had just called for a regular appointment.
