This man is a saint. I'm not fond of doctors and choose not to see them until I'm really sick. Everytime I see Dr Vaz his calming demeanor always puts me at ease. He always listens and makes sure you understand your condition. I would give him 10 stars if I could.

Dr. Vaz is about as good as it gets he cares about his patients he smart articulate and not motivated by money. I have watched him over the past 10 to 15 years and believe that he really understands everything that is needed to be a caring and attentive physician. I can’t say enough about ‘Richard

Incorrect diagnosis with no testing what so ever. Had dot go to another facility to get the correct diagnosis and medication. Waste of time and money see Dr. Vaz.
