I really like Dr Vasquez and his staff they very helpful i would recommend him to my family and friends, really like
Bloomington, IN |
I visited his office for help, literally on my knees. He first asked if I was on drugs, yea, then the visit was over. His dismissal of my problems and "quick to assume" attitude almost cost me my life. I had a vasculitis infection that affected my heart & lungs. Ever heard of giant cell issues doc? They're a matter of life & death.
in Spencer, IN |
Dr. Vasquez treated my veins with a chemical and they disappeared over time. I would highly recommend him to anyone who has leg veins.
