      Had a surgery planned on the 23rd for over a month for a thyroid removal (inconclusive biopsy) and had just seen his PA on the 16th telling me it was all a go. Got a call on the 20th from Linda the office manager telling me he no longer is practicing and had to cancer my surgery three days before. Unprofessional and feel slighted by the way it was handled. I don't recommend, as they then tried to find me a new surgeon in a day and someone they know! Rediculous. Find someone else!!!!

      Dr. VLR is not direct with terminal patients and recommends extreme surgeries in casual ways that lead patients toward false hope. If your parent is stage four, please be DIRECT with VLR about presenting medical options to them. In fact, it might be best to have an oncological social worker, hospice provider, or oncologist present these decisions to your loved one instead. The end-of-life options VLR presents will include radical surgery and ICU, but he will make is seem rosy.

      I had a Whipple 11/4/14 and I can only say that not only is Dr. VLR a gem but so is his PA, Katie and his office staff. He is tops in his field and when I mention his name anyone in the medical field only has positive comments. On occasion I had to wait to be seen later than scheduled, however, I never felt that I was rushed bc he was running late.
