Dr. Vega seemed to be fine with me but when it came to delivery there was nothing. The office screwed up my prescription, they gave me tests I absolutely did not need, they told me to come in when I actually they wanted a teleconference......overall they have been the biggest pain in the rear I have experienced in a long time. I cannot Recommend this group. They appear in every way to be a definite money-mill.

The first time I saw Dr. Vega, she actually examined me plus ran tests. She is staying up to date on research and she's been a very good Dr for me even diagnosing me appropriately. I woukd recommend her for anyone suffering from pain and inflammation!

this is a Dr. I was sent to when I was first diagnosed with Lupus. The first time I saw her she told me you don't have Lupus. You don't have the butterfly rash on your face. So I thought maybe she was right. Ah no she wasn't, After 8 years the Lupus decided to really hit me hard. All kinds of different medical problems have arisen because she said I didn't have Lupus. If this is someone you want to see go ahead, but don't expect much help from her.

I have been seeing Dr. Vega for five years. She has been a God send to me! Finally after years & years of doctors that didn't listen or try to find my illness, Dr. Vega diagnosed me with RA and has been treating me for it. She is very caring and professional. I have nothing but respect for her. I'll will remain her patient until she retires!

I absolutely adored Dr Vega. She listened to me, was genuinely concerned with what was going on with me. Ordered all the appropriate tests, and re scheduled me for another evaluation. She spent over an hour with me. She was Thurough and took a very detailed history. I am so happy to have found her! Getting close to a diagnosis after many years of awful doctors. I have been an RN for 40 years.

She was rude to the point of hostility, right off the bat. I walked out, and would never recommend her to anyone.

This doctor needs to retire. I can't begin to explain the incompetency and idiocy I've experienced at her hands for the past...um...five years? I have filed complaints on her...and nothing. She and I have verbally argued with raised voices because of her lack of professionalism. I dislike her and only go to her until I can finally get a referral to see someone else, which I have been working on for about six months! If you decide to make an appointment with her anyway, don't be fooled.

I have gone into withdrawls for two months in a row because she does not have anyone to write her rx's when she is gone so much. I am getting tired of this fighting for my medications each month! She has childish fits and throws things. I am just so done with her, I can not walk without my medication and yet her again, withdrawl.

I have NEVER been treated as poorly as I was today. Bedside manner was so horrible that I walked out after waiting months for an appointment with a rheumatologist. I thought that I would be listened to. I thought, maybe, someone would truly care what my body was going through. We were only with her for a few minutes and after I walked out, she suggested to my partner that I see a psychiatrist. She deduced that from my one word replies to her list of questions.
