I call Dr. Vincent, Saint Vincent. Not only is he a top notch Dr. but he is a terrific human being. He has integrity and is caring. If you ask anyone who works for him or has met him they will all tell you the same thing. He removed two tumors from inside my spinal canal. I feel blessed to have found him.

Dr. Vincent and his staff were very responsive to my needs at the beginning of a long holiday weekend. As expected, he initially tried conservative treatment but when, within days, it was obvious it was not going to improve my condition, he scheduled me for surgery. I am very pleased with the results and with the care I received.

I had a cervical fusion on two levels in Dec 2015 after being referred to Dr. Vincent by many other physicians. I felt that my entire experience was professional, caring, and successful, other than the choice of Bon Secours hospital. The hospital staff was overworked, inattentive, and there were poor conditions.

Dr. Vincent is an extremely knowledgeable, very caring & amazingly capable Neuro Surgeon. He explains all the information you need to understand your surgery in a very clear & thorough way. He is extremely enthusiastic about his profession & does an amazingly good job in accomplishing what he plans to do in his complex spinal surgeries. He also has a great bedside manner. I could have not asked for a better & more capable surgeon to operate on my back.
