Doctor Ratio Vujicic has no compassion for my pain situation and refuses to take into account my mental health when prescribing my medication. I told him and his PA that buprenorphine which he first prescribed to me in patch form had a profound effect on my depression and that it was causing me to have thoughts of suicide. Dr.V then prescribed me Belbuca which is an oral version buprenorphine. This was a complete lack of care for my well being and life.

I have been seeing Dr. V now for almost 3 years. Before I found him, I was desperate and in need of help. From the first visit, he gave me hope that he could help me feel better. He gave me several options for treatment and we started right away. Dr. V is always so kind and listens to me. He treats me with such compassion and has a kind and caring demeanor. The staff at V Pain are amazing as well. V Pain changed my life!

NEVER NEVER NEVER GO TO THIS DR!! I have 40 yrs experience as a RN and this Dr displayed the MOST UNPROFESSIONAL manner I have NEVER seen in all my years as a patient OR as a professional Nurse!!! I was APPALLED at his complete lack of empathy towards my pain, feelings, and totally RUDE behavior towards me!! I intend to also report his behavior to the AMA.....he should NOT be treating patients with his temper or attitude!! DON'T USE!!!

He is a great doctor. unfortunately he has reduced the level of therapeutic medication (frequency and dosage) due to surgeon general and not due to any change in my conditions.

He is the rudest Dr I have ever came across. He is mean mouthed and very forceful with his physical examination. He shows no compassion. I wouldn't want him to help if I was dying on the side of the road come to think of it he'd probably just pass me by anyway. He was not interested in why I came to him or even get to know me either. It seemed he'd formed an opinion about me before ever laying eyes on me. He just made me feel like a lowlife for coming after my rhuematologist told me to. Jerk!

I found Dr. Vujici to be condescending . He would ask questions and then would you would try to answer, he would interrupt. His physical exam was too fast and did not convey his findings. I highly doubt his abilities to do trigger point or ESI procedures per the conversation I had with him. He has no empathy for pain, which is by nature, a subjective response from the patient. I would never recommend him to anyone.

The meanest doctor I ever met in my life with no bed side manner whatsoever. I really think something is wrong with him since I never have or had a problem with any doctors. He was cold when he got in the room, before he even got to know me or read my records. It was easy to schedule an appointment because he probably has very few patients.
