What People Say About Dr. Richard Vest III, MD
Reply
Dr Vest is exceptionally good. He did a heart ablation on my husband. He did so well that four days later, with Dr Vest's approval, we took a 5-hour road trip to attend a family reunion. Dr Vest fully prepared us for the procedure, gave us a clear understanding afterward, & was just wonderful. We both agree that he's professional, punctual, informative & likeable. Would highly recommend! Susan & Chares Brent, Montgomery. AL
