Dr Vahey has performed 7 surgeries on me since 2014. Each time he took time to listen what the issue was and explained the options and what I could expect. He has also operated on my wife several times as well. The results have always been good. A real caring doctor. There isn’t another doctor that I would allow to operate on my hands and arms.

I had been to two other hand surgeons prior to seeing Dr. Vahey. I found Dr. Vahey's depth of professional knowledge and experience to be superior to the other hand surgeons I had seen in the Las Vegas area. He was very knowledgeable, straight forward and backed up all his diagnostic conclusions with straight forward facts supported by his many years of experience. I strongly recommend him. I just wish I would have seen him first, before going to two other hand surgeons who were much less experienced.

Dr. Vahey and his support staff are efficient and diligent in treatment and office operation. My experience with his physical therapy crew was excellent and that's the most important part of post surgery of the hand.

Dr Vahey and his entire staff were so great with everything they did for me with my hand surgery. His assistant Magaly is so awesome with her care and help with everything. You will not find a more professional or friendly staff or doctor. I highly recommend going there. You will be glad you did.

Dr. Vahey fused my left index finger due to osteoarthritis. I am left handed and thanks to the doctor, his staff and the hand therapists I am able to again use my finger, write, type and hold items. What a great group off people.
