Dr. Vyas thoroughly went over all of my tests and films explaining everything, spent as much time as I needed to answer all of my questions, and even met a second time with me and my husband. He not only is professional but also patient and reassuring. He clearly is highly competent and I feel completely confident not only in reccomending him to others, but in putting myself in his hands for neurosurgery.

Dr. Vayas saw a relative of mine who had a brain hemorrhage. Dr. Vayas discharged her without any follow up care. Just a few days later she developed dangerous complications which required hospitalization and her husband tried in vain for multiple days to reach Dr. V. He NEVER returned any phone calls and no one from his office did either. His care was beyond poor and his concern as a doctor is inexcusable.

Dr. Vyas is amazing, the care I received was beyond excellent. He knew how terrified I was about going through with my surgery, and if it wasn't for him, I doubt I would've gone through with it. From the day of my surgery to the day I left hospital, he visited every day, and talked through all aspects of my care with me. He explains everything in layman's terms so you totally understand him. He just really cares, rare to find a doctor like that these days. His team are also fantastic.

I was referred by my primary physician. Overall the appointment was fine. However, I felt Dr. Vyas was irritated I visited him for my condition. He ordered tests and did not contact me with the results. I subsequently visited my primary physician and she instructed me to reach out to Dr. Vyas for the results. I did, no response. After seeing another neurologist, I was referred to an endocrinologist due to these test results. I could have been on the path to recovery a month earlier!!!!

After waiting a month to get an appointment with Dr. Vyas in Leesburg, he kept us waiting over half an hour in the exam room. When he finally did arrive he spent 10 minutes with us and avoided our questions. We left with orders for a CAT scan and after completing that test he never called to tell us the results even after contacting him by email and phone to remind him we were waiting. Total waste of money. Had to cisit another neurosurgeon to get results and followup care.

Dr. Vyas spent time with my husband and myself explaining findings and treatment options. Was very willing to answer questions. Great bed-side manner. Wonderful experience with the office staff. Personally conducted follow up phone calls with my husband. Would highly recommend Dr. Vyas for nonsurgical consults. Thank you Dr. Vyas for the amazing care.
