in Des Moines, IA |
I have been seeing Dr. Vasquez for over 5 years. He knows me as a patient-remembers my personal and medical history. Always gives the time you need. Open and listens to my suggestions/ideas. Never condescending or pompous. Very knowledgeable and intuitive. I always feel comfortable talking about issues/concerns. Has made time in schedule to see me in urgent situations. Has a sense of humor. Cares about social justice and social determinants of health.
in Urbandale, IA |
He had a very pleasant demeanor and it was one of the best visits I've had with a doctor. He really made me feel comfortable, was very thorough, and he didn't rush. Maybe it was a slow day, but he seemed just fine giving me more than 5 minutes.
