Dr Vasquez was always late for my appointments and spent very little time with me. Not once did he examine my legs or pay close attention to my questions or concerns. The only office staff member who was friendly and helpful was the receptionist. In addition, the waiting room was always crowded and reeked of cigarette smoke. I got the impression of a medical practice that sees too many patients and does not spend sufficient time to treat them. It seemed more like a money making operation than a health care facility. I did not return for surgery and have since sought evaluation and treatment elsewhere. After finding another facility and doctor, I realized how deficient Dr Vasquez and his operation are. I have recommended against this practice when asked.

As I just told Dr. Vasquez, the body reflects the head, and all of his staff most definitely reflect his professionalism, thoroughness, kindness and humor in all they do. They were all hugely instrumental in removing my initial trepidation of seeing a vascular surgeon since that sounds so ominous! Thank you for that!
