Dr Vaughan did a hip replacement for me. He was professional, timely, courteous, and knowledgeable and has a good sense of humor. His office staff is amazing making sure I had all the information and appointments I needed set up prior to surgery. Perhaps the highest kudos come from a neighbor. I walk our road almost daily and 8 weeks after surgery her comment was that she could not even tell that I had had surgery except that I walk much better.
