Not recommend Dr. Venya unless you want to wait hours past appointment time to see him. First visit I waited 3 hours before shown to room and another 20 -30 minutes before doctor saw me. Appointment was made two months in advance. Waiting room was packed and overflow had to sit in the outside lobby. Checking in I saw 90% of patients were seeing Dr. Venya. He overbooks appointments and sitting there for hours you get the feeling you are just part of the doctor's surgery production line. This was not a one time occurance, but 3 times . Waiting room always packed and I was grateul when I got to the room with only a 1hr 45min. wait, my appointment was 10:15 saw the doctor at noon. Also over 2 hourwait He also had little time for his patients. Never saw him before surgery and morning after as I was walking with an aide to bathroom, he saw me from the hall, said "you're up" and kept on walking. Hour later I was being discharged, he never came in to see how I was or discuss my surgery.

He saved my life after a serious car accident which could have left me paralyzed permanently. I returned to my teaching job, which I loved. God bless your skillful gifts, Dr. Venya.

Honestly, Dr. Veyna is an absolute gift to this earth. I have met a lot of doctors that miss diagnosed a tumor I had in my sacrum, but not Dr. Veyna. If there was a script for what I needed to hear from a doctor it's as if he read it word for word. EXCELLENT bedside manner. Amazing human being. He explained everything and was so honest. He had my best interest in mind at all times. He gave me my life back after fast tracking me to O.R and removing a painful tumor. My family absolutely loved him!

Dr Veyna performed a cervical fusion on me years ago. I have nothing but excellent reviews for him. I recommend him to another aquaintence of mine and after a disabling back injury, then a few visits to Dr Veyna, he is now back to work and feeling fine! Dr Veyna is a very compassionate, understanding and skilled surgeon.

Dr Veyna is awesome. He is great at listening to you and the pain your in, explains what's going on, what he wants to do, very understanding. He did 3 lower back surgeries to my back and its a huge improvement from when I first had problems. Will recommend him to anyone who need help with their back in the future.

I chose Dr. Veyna after researching and finding out that he trained under the wonderful surgeon who did my previous surgery. When I met him he was very open and personable. I have been a registered nurse for over 40 years and he answered all of my questions and put me at ease. I would recommend him to my family and colleagues.

I trust Dr. Veyna when he reviewed my MRI, he told me that he would not do surgery on me. I'm sure I could find many other doctors that would, but my results would not be optimal. He explained that I would probably not have reduced pain, and would for sure have reduced mobility. I appreciate his honesty, and the time he spent with me explaining my MRI. Surgery is not always the best option.

Dr. Veyna performed brain surgery on me at Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak last November. I couldn't be more pleased with the care I received from him! He removed a meningoma tumor the size of an orange from my brain. I will be forever grateful to him for such compasionate care. Lynne Gregory

Dr Veyna was a great surgeon 5 years ago when my disc blew up in my back. For the last 6 months I have been having problems with my back again. I set up an appointment for it & was told the soonest I could get in was 2 months from the day I called to make my appointment. I've went to emergency 2 times since for the excruciating pain I'm in. The day before my appointment as I was in the hospital his office called me to tell me they had to cancel & the soonest I can get in again is another month.

Dr Veyna was great. He sat across from me and my husband and took the time to explain everything from my MRI to surgical options. He also was very honest regarding how much pain relief cervical spine surgery would provide. After ten years of pain I feel that even a small amount of relief would be welcomed and we were grateful for his honesty as to what to expect. We never felt rushed despite the office being very busy that day.
