Doctor Veith is GREAT but his STAFF is ridiculous. No one in his office will ever call you back. If you ask any of them a simple question when you are there they can’t and sometimes won’t answer you. I have never experienced such a miserable staff in my life.

Veith has been my oncologist for over ten years. He is professional and relatable, he talks to easy the fear, not too much but just enough to cause pause in the jitters.
