Dr. Vera provided care for my husband after his initial diagnosis of cancer. Dr. Vera's honesty with compassion was refreshing and reassuring for my husband. He spent time with us to really understand what was important to the patient as well as the family. The options were clearly laid out and Dr. Vera made himself available as questions and concerns arose. I hope he never loses that ability to truly connect with the person behind the disease as he progresses through his career. With all the doctors that my husband was referred to and seen by after Dr. Vera moved on to his new position at Essentia, we always look back fondly at the compassionate care he received from Dr. Vera.

Unfortunately, he doesn’t listen well. Have had conversations with him and had to correct the same information 4 or 5 times each conversation. The conversations also start out with next steps/recommendations but then ends up giving the opposite of the same steps/recommendations. It’s happened at least 3 times regarding different components of care. His documentation of conversations very from what was actually discussed.
