Excellent, can’t imagine recommending any other!
Dr. Vaught saw my husband, diagnosed his problem and successfully completed surgery. Dr. Vaught is rated one the top neurosurgeons in the US (top in my mind). I hope Dr. Vaught finds out how very much The Green’s appreciate all that he did for us. I was so worried at the time that I could not even express my gratitude. Dr. Vault is VERY intelligent, but kind, tender and most of all, he is a Christian, one of the most important qualities to us. If anyone is looking for a top notch neurosurgeon, go no further. Regional Brain & Spine is the most organized, well-run, caring offices I have seen. They ALL; administrative staff, assistants, Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, PA’s, and Doctors are truly a TEAM!

Dr. Vaught and his staff, Logan, Lindsey and Patrick Hammond were excellent to work with. From the moment my husband met with Dr. Vaught and then ended up in the emergency room until the discharge date, they were kind and caring of his needs. Dr. Vaught is an excellent surgeon. My husband is like a new man. However, I would not recommend the pain management side of his office. The PA, Kristy Skinner, was not very considerate and treated my husband like he was just there for pain medicine, which was not the case at all. He needed help and relief quickly due to the horrible pain he was in and the inability to work. Dr. Vaught is very caring and we would recommend him to anyone. Thank you Dr. Vaught and Logan, Lindsey and Patrick Hammond for all of your care and consideration during what we felt was the worst time of our lives. God Bless!!

I think the world of DR Vaught. He has given my way of life back to me, pain free. He and his staff will answer any and all of your questions, and trust me I had plenty. He doesn’t make you do anything he tells you what needs to be done and you make up your own mind. He is good at his job.

Yes. Dr Vaught and his staff checked in on me daily in the hospital after my lumbar fusion surgery. My office visits before and after the surgery were always very timely. All of his staff was helpful and courteous. The results of the surgery were great. I am now pain free.

All my visits and the surgery went very well. Dr. Vaught explained the procedure thoroughly as did other staff. Educational information was very good, but possible side effects were not thorough enough.

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.
