Patient Comments (6)
in Helotes, TX |
I have been a patient of Dr. V for over ten years. I can truly say that he is the best doctor I have ever seen. I am 72 years old and he always looks me in the eye and asks, "how are you feeling? Any stress, problems, or changes in your life?". And he actually listens. He has notes from our last meeting but he remembers little things like helping my mother in law move or flying to San Diego last time. He warns me when I go off my diet or not exercise and he praises me when I did well. Fantastic.

Dr. V has been my Dr. for the last 5 years. I absolutely love his down to earth, easy to talk to and he tells me like it is demeanor . He is very professional and very helpful.
Everything about this doctor was completely unethical and disgraceful. I'd never been disrespected by ANY practitioner the way he disrespected me. Completely unprofessional, terrible bedside manner and extremely rude. This is a used-car salesman type of doctor - attempted to treat me for conditions for which I am already under care for (for which was not his specialty to begin with), placing very low priority to the critical condition for which I was there for. Utterly disgusted.
in Pharr, TX |
I really liked Dr V (as he is called), he is a very thorough Dr. He explained exactly what was going with my thyroid & what we were going to do. I was very impressed.
in San Antonio, TX |
He's knowledgeable, but his bedside manner is horrible. Half the time, he ignores questions and fires off a short answer and moves on to something else. He actually told me I had to get my thyroid removed, without consulting with me about it at all. It took several visits for him to explain fully why he recommended that.. It just seems like he wants to get rid of you as quickly as possible.
in Seguin, TX |
I would recommend him because he explains my condition to where I understand it, not just in doctor terms.
