Providence, RI |
Dr. Vrees is a very knowledgeable and skilled doctor; however his bedside manner good use improvement. His staff and surgical coordinator leave much to be desired - had to wait an additional 2 months to have a procedure done because there was a note missing in a file. Calling the office sends you direct to voicemail with no call back for at least a few days.
