Impressive physician! I have nothing but great words about Dr. V. You can tell this man truly cares. He is very personable and takes the time to fully explain every aspect of the situation. He has excellent communication skills and bedside manners. This is the kind of physician that you can trust. His honesty is comforting. He goes above and beyond. I will continue to give him praise for saving my moms life and giving me another day with her.
