Seemed genuinely interested in helping me identify and resolve my health issues. Been looking for a doctor who is knowledgeable and who cares...I'd recommend him to anyone seeking answers to difficult medical problems involving neurology.

Very kind doctor, my first Neuro was nice but that was it. Dr. V as I call him is kind and very informative. I don't leave with questions unanswered and he always makes sure I understand. And if I think of a Q, after I leave I can call. Sometimes there is a wait to see him but that's cause he takes care of his people, well worth it. Staff is great too, love nurse Daisy.

A caring doctor who actually LISTENS to you...the patient. He thinks outside the box and works with his patients to find answers to problems no one else wants to take the time to do. He is a great doc.

Dr. Vavra is wonderful. When I had some MRIs done, he sat down, went over the films with me, and explained everything that was on the films. I have never had a doctor do this with me before. He is willing to try alternatives for migraines such as vitamins and supplements ex B2,feverfew rather than just handing me a prescription for drugs that could cause dangerous side effects. Also, I never have to wait long to see him.
