What People Say About Dr. Paul Vaughn, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I found Dr. Vaughn to be straight forward not mincing words just saying it like it is. I found his up front manner refreshing compared to the doctors that talk in medical terms that are used to confuse and leave you wondering what just happened or leaving you afraid that you will not make it through the night. You may not wish to hear what he is saying but you will know what will happen and what to expect in the future. He's not one to run unnecessary test or run test just because he can.

Probably the best vascular surgeon in arizona. Very honest person unlike the majority of physicians in the area. Will take as much time as needed to explain problems and upcoming surgeries. A very rare physician to find. He is very well known throughout arizona for his work.
