Care Philosophy

Your hands are complex, made up of many small bones called carpals, metacarpals, and phalanges. The two bones of the lower arm, the radius and ulna, meet at the hand to form the wrist. The median and ulnar nerves are responsible for the movement of, ...

REcently saw Dr. Vagner again, this time for my elbow tendinitis. Had to track him down as he changed offices, but it was well worth it. He is gracious, knowledgeable and easily communicates important information and diagnosis. He thanked me for tracking him down, and made it known he was easily accessible by phone if I had any more questions or concerns with the treatment he recommended.

Dr Vagner was recommended by my personal physician who is rated one of the Top Doctors in Austin. I needed immediate surgery on both hands and Dr Vagner's office accommodated my scheduling needs with a next day appointment. Within a week of first visiting Dr Vagner I had the surgery with only minor discomfort over a 24 hour period. Within 9 days, the stitches were out and I have seen improvement from the nerve damage. I am hopeful that within 6 to 9 months my full feeling will be restored.

Dr. Vagner has treated both me and my husband for various hand issues. After suffering with De Quervain tendonitis for over a year under the care of another hand specialist, I went to Dr. Vagner as a last resort (Should have gone there first.) He took less then 5 minutes to diagnose, and treat it with a shot. The pain has gone away and have been pain free for over 8 months. He has also treated arthritis in my hand. His treatment of my husbands trigger finger has also been successful.

I've been going to Dr. Vagner for about 8 years. He has performed 3 surgeries on my hands and in each case it fixed my problem. He always has time to talk to me about what my problem is and gives me the option to choose, if there is more than one solution, what I want to do. I have total trust in Dr. Vagner.

He seemed too busy to actually sit down with me. He was always in and out of the exam room in a quick amount of time.

The billing staff is very rude! They overcharged me and I have to wait for my refund for over a month. When I asked why it takes over a month to post my refund back to my credit card they said well that's just our process. Dr. Vagner was ok. When I asked him what the cause of my problem was he just said well you are getting older. Not exactly happy with this office and staff.
