What People Say About Dr. Robert Viere, MD

Dr Viere has been my doctor for about 20 years. He worked with me knowing I didn't want to have surgery. Once it was time, he showed compassion, knowing it was a hard decision for me. Now I am pretty much pain free, thanks to him. He is very talented and cares about his patients. I cannot think of one negative thing about him. He is a wonderful person.

Conservative, looking for the least invasive, effective treatment. 15 years ago this compassionate physician, Dr Viere put me on the path to pain free living and a good nights sleep without surgery. All these years later, rear ended again, I was very relieved to discover he was still taking new patients. He has an easy going, thoughtful demeanor. As an RN with decades of experience, I know the value of a physician with years of experience- nothing can replace that. Thanks Dr Viere!

Nearly 8 mos ago, my husband, who was suffering greatly and on major pain meds, underwent a 12 1/2 hour surgery by Dr. Viere. The outcome was incredible - he is now 4 inches taller than before surgery and on NO pain meds! It is truly an answer to prayers! We credit Dr. Viere with the patience and skill to correct his back problems! We will continue to highly recommend Dr. Viere to anyone suffering from back pain!

I went to see Dr. Viere because I had a previous back surgery that did not work and I was in major pain. He took some xrays and told me with a confidence that I have never heard before...."I can fix that." And he did!!! 12 1/2 hours worth of surgery and I came out of it 4 inches taller and ZERO pain. I hate to overuse the word miracle, but that is what he did for me. Always took as much time as I needed to answer all of my questions. A quiet humility was always his demeaner.

I had suffered from lower back pain for most of my life and had visited many doctors for an opinion with widely varying advice. Thankfully I decided to search for the best Doctor in Texas. Dr. Viere was the only one who spent the time to review the condition of every joint in my spine, tell me what the options were and the future looked like. I had every lumbar joint fused with hardware and for the first time in my life I can say my back is fixed. Without a doubt, Dr. Viere is the real thing!

I went to Dr. Viere after having three years of pain in my back and down my right leg. I had been to a pain specialist for injections for two years, with little relief. My surgery was three years ago. The surgery he performed for me has taken away all my pain and I am functioning better than I have in many years. He was caring and supportive and I highly recommend him to anyone.

He damaged my spinal chord in back surgery and I am disabled and will limp for the rest of my life. He runs an assembly line for surgery, and treats you like a number. Letting Dr. Viere operate on me changed my life--for the worse. I wouldn't wish Dr. Viere for anyone.

After being told repeatedly for over a year by a Southlake specialist that nothing could be done for my back pain post-laminectomy, I finally went to Dr. Viere . On my first visit with Dr. Viere I cried when he looked at the same MRI the specialist had used and told me five reasons why my back pain was justified and how he could improve my quality of life. Thanks to Dr. Viere I am pain-free today for the first time in years. The recommendation I got was that he is the best and they were right!

After over 2 years of messing around with other doctors (supposedly some of the best in Dallas), In finally was referred to Dr. Viere by another physician. My first appt. was made in a timely manner,,the front office staff is genuine and courteous, his nursing staff is the best, and his PA is great! At each visit, both pre and post surgery, I saw Dr. Viere. I can only say that this is the Best experience that I have ever had with a medical specialist.
