I have had nothing but great experience with Dr Vella and his staff. My incision is so nice you can barely see it. I still have some swelling of my fingers and wrist, but I am back at using my hand an I can crochet again. Still being careful putting wait on my hand, but I am managing quite well with daily tasks.

This will be my second surgery performed by Dr Vella on my left hand the first on my right hand went so well I had nearly full use before the stitches were removed!!! I would never even imagine going to a different surgeon, very easy to talk to great bedside manners.

Due to insurance I had to make a doctor change, not an easy thing to do. I liked my prior doctor. Dr. Vella was such a wonderful surprise he was kind, gentle and thorough. He is a great communicator and I was never rushed.

Dr Vella is an amazing physician. He truly cares for and listens to the patient. I prefer a more natural approach to my health Care and he is extremely knowledgeable in that sense as well as in the traditional forms of medicine. I have to comment on his calm demeanor and genuine kindness. He truly cares for you as an individual.
