If you experience pain issues that effect your life, do yourself a huge favor and make an appointment with Dr. Vige. I have been treated by him on several occasions due to a variety of conditions and at each visit he takes time to make sure my concerns are addressed. His treatment plans are right on. His staff are polite, considerate and there is minimal, if any, delays waiting for appointments.

Dr Vije is a board certified interventional pain doc - which means he specializes in finding the cause of your pain, fixing it, while relying on a long-term solution and not just pain meds. my experience with him so far has been no less than amazing. He has handled my chronic back pain effectively, he's always available, and his office staff is caring and very professional. He is young, he's not burned out, he Is still excited to help people on a long-term basis Highly recommended !

Dr. Vije is unique and top notch pain management doctor in that he wants to help solve the source of the pain and not just prescribe pain drugs. I came to Dr. Vije with chronic debilitating abdominal nerve pain, Dr. Vije recommended some procedures to locate the source of the problem nerves and in the process he was able to eliminate about 90% of my nerve pain. If you are looking for a doctor that wants to help solve the problem and source of your pain, then I would highly recommend Dr. Vije!

Dr. Vije with Pain Partners of Texas in Lakeway is the best pain management Dr. I have ever had! He is a great listener to find out specifically what is going on and gives you many solutions to actually deal with pain instead of living in chronic pain. I began having disc deterioration early in life. I have dealt with Doctors who only wanted to drug me, Doctors who moved you through procedures like cattle and did not listen! I am elated Dr. Christopher Vije choose to open his own practice!

Dr. Vije and his staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. I felt very comfortable in his office and Dr. Vije spent a lot of time understanding my situation. Unfortunately, my situation require a different doctor which Dr. Vije (himself) called me personally and gave me the information. I work in the healthcare industry and having a doctor call you and spend the time with you is not often seen, but it was at this practice! Would highly recommend seeing Dr. Vije and his staff!!
