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.

Was a great doctor till his office stopped taking my insurance than he stopped seeing me! I had an emergency but could not schedule an appt and was not given the reason so I assumed it was an insurance issue or just didn’t care! During my cancer treatment his office staff were so slow and lazy getting information to my surgeon that when I called for the fourth time and got the office manager her respond was “what do you want me to do about it?” They are just rude!!!!

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.

I have been Dr. Vaz's patient for 15 years. He has 1 of the best, most comfortable & endearing bed-side manners of any doctor I know. Whenever I need to see a specialist, he always sends me in the right direction everytime. He takes his time with his patients & really cares about each & every one of them. I recommend him to all my family & friends.
