    I would like to thank Dr. Vale on the successful surgery he gave me with controlling my seizures. A very compassionate person who puts care and concern to his patients (that means the most to a patient when you can have this kind of trust). I would gladly recommend him to ones who want to make this decision. Thanks for changing my life for me!!
