Dr. Vaught & his staff are very caring & listens to his patients. He & his staff explain things very well. I would highly recommend Dr. Vaught for any type of spinal surgery. I had to have a triple fusion in my neck in July & I was extremely scared to death to have to have that kind of a surgery. Dr. Vaught & his staff reassured me that everything was going to be OK ! They done an amazing job !! My recovery went very smoothly. I am very pleased with my surgery's out come.

I had the cervical fusion surgery in Jan 2020, Received Excellent care through out the entire process. Staff is very thorough & knowledgeable, never felt like i was being rushed through appointments. Dr. Vaught was very compassionate, took extra time to explain the procedure and staff that would be involved in my total care, pre and post op. Highly recommend RBS. I feel fortunate to have had such excellent care without having to drive hours away.

I had a c3-c7 acdf and Dr. Vaught provided the care. Dr. Vaught and his staff were compassionate and understanding. They provided me with a level of care that far exceeded my expectations. I couldn't ask for better medical care. The outcome of my surgery has left me feeling better than I have felt in a long time. I would not hesitate to go back to Dr. Vaught if I had any more Spine complications. Thank you, Dr. Vaught !

When I first visited Dr. Vaught on 12/08/2019, I was in a wheel chair due to a herniated disc. I was suffering from excruciating nerve pain and had been “bounced” between doctors prior to being referred to Dr. Vaught. On 01/08/2020 I underwent spinal fusion surgery and my recovery has been remarkable. Today I visited Dr. Vaught’s office for my 2 week post surgery follow-up. I’m walking without assistance and I’m pain free. I will forever be grateful to Dr. Vaught for giving me back my life. Sometimes super heroes wear white lab coats. Thank you, Dr. Vaught!

My experience with Regional Brain and Spine has been great so far. I had neck surgery on 5/28/19 with Dr Vaught and I have no complaints. The people there have been great and have went out of the way to make sure I understood everything about the procedures. Dr Vaught spent more time with me discussing things than was probably needed and that was comforting. It's good to find a doctor that cares about making the right decisions for your health and not just rushing you to the operation. Getting in and out of appointments has been fairly quick and easy considering how slow most doctor offices are. Everything pre and post operation has been great. I would highly recommend them at this point.

He was a very professional Doctor. He was strait up honest with me from day one, never sugar coated anything. I was skeptical when I first went because I heard horror stories about after back surgery but it was totally wrong. I couldn't have asked for a better outcome. I tried my best to do 100% what he suggested and now I'm in no pain. I would highly recommend Dr. Vaught. Thanks again if you read this.

BEFORE suggesting surgery, Dr. Vaught used pain management, exercises & therapy. After exhausting all alternatives, surgery was used. He informed me of the surgery procedure using a skeletal model, gave me all the printed information on questions I had asked & spent all the time I needed with him until he was satisfied that I knew what to expect from the surgery. He then went into detail about the length of hospital stay, what to expect after I got home & what he expected from me. I have recovered in a short amount of time with no problems. I feel if you are willing to list all of your concerns, listen to what he has to say & more importantly, do what is asked of you, you'll have no regrets using Dr. Vaught. I highly recommend him to my friends and anyone else.

Dr. Vaught sat down facing me and asked questions, told me a story relating to my own injury and made me feel that he understood. After my Surgery, he personally called my family to inform them of how I was doing and was very caring. I would recommend him to anyone. His entire staff were helpful and open to answering my many questions.

Dr. Vaught provided excellent advice concerning the issues with my lower back. The problem with my lumbar spine was complicated and after extensive testing at Regional Brain and Spine, he explained the problems, the procedure that would be required, and the timeframe for recovery. All my questions were answered and the entire staff at Regional is qualified and professional. I am happy I chose Regional and Dr. Vaught to perform this procedure.
