What People Say About Dr. Kevin Vaught, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

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.

Dr. Vaught explained everything and made sure I was well taken care of. I couldn’t have been more pleased with having him as my doctor and friend. After back surgery I was back to work in 26 days. He fixed everything just like he said he would. Thank you Dr. Vaught

If I was to ever have to have a procedure and/or surgery in the future, I will definitely be back to Dr. Vaught.

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.
