About Me

Becoming a partner with the patient and helping to educate them about their options is part of his care philosophy. Ultimately, it's the patient's decision, but helping to educate them on their options takes time, and he takes time to do just that -- educate and partner with his patients.

Dr Veyna is the best doctor I've ever seen. He's helped twice and I may need to see him again. I'd put my life in his hands without a moments thought. Thank you, Dr. Veyna, for listening to me & for helping me. God bless you.

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.

Dr. Veyna has been my doctor for years. I first saw him at a different practice. He had treated me for neck and back issues. When he moved to the MHSI practice. I followed him there. He knows my case inside and out and there is no one I trust more for my back and neck issues then Dr. Veyna.
