Dr. Veyna's Care Philosophy

Dr. Veyna understands the concern patient's may have when considering surgical options. 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.
