Columbus, GA |
I have been a patient of Dr. Vivas for over 10 years. He has always been very professional, courteous, and willing to take time to answer any questions I might have. His office staff is great and I’ve never had any issues with them. They only problem I have is that due to his patient load and the fact that he doesn’t employ a PA it can be difficult to schedule appointments on a timely basis.

I have been a patient of Dr. Vivas for about 15 years. He has done an excellent job of keeping my arthritis under control.
My interest sent over my labs with elevated ANA and because I was previously seen by his mentors son, his nurse called and left a VM stating that I didn't have an inflammatory issue! I called his office and was told that he would not see me because of his affiliation. He rather lie about my illness than see a former patient of his mentors son. All he had to do was refer me elsewhere. I am glad this happened because I see how unprofessional he is. If possible go elsewhere!!!!
