There are 2 kinds of doctors, those who care and those who don't. Dr. Vest has always been there to help me with my illnesses. He always tries to find out what's wrong and he truly tries to help you. He has always done his best, more than other doctors I have been to. I can always depend on him. Been going to him for 20 yrs.

The worst experience with any phycian I've ever come in contact with. Completely dismissive and outright rude. He does not even look at you when he speaks. His lack of knowledge and compassion is evident. It is "doctors" like, and I call him a doctor loosely, Dr. Vest that has sent a once was decent place for medical care down the sewer.
Does not treat his patients as if they are people. If you have questions he tries to rush through your appointment and his #1 concern is not your health but collecting a payment. I wouldn't refer my worst enemy to him.

I met Dr Vest back in 2002 when he was taking care of my mother in an area long-term care facility. I liked his approach, he was easy to talk with and he cared about his patient and their family equally. I lost track of him after Mom died, but when the GP I was going to retired and Dr Vest picked up his patients, including me, I was happy. Dr Vest listens, he cares, he doesn't condescend, he's real and he knows what he's doing. Can't ask for more than that.

I said I was there for my annual physical exam. I was asked, Well, what do you want me to do? Oh, you know, BP, blood work, that kind of stuff. I shouldn't have to tell him. Seems to operate more from a philosophy of What's broke, we'' fix it.
