The first visit he was very friendly. When we went back for the prostate test he really hurt me. Was painful and awake. I stopped half way through. On the follow up visit for test results it wa a quick cold visit. Basically “here’s where the cancer was and here’s a prescription for 35 treatments 5 a week for 7 weeks. And that was pretty much it! We left and never returned which was sept 2016

Dr. Vick is a very nice man. His staff, however, turned out to be rude, unaccommodating, inefficient, lied to me about paperwork and drug registrations they say they had completed, were rude to me on the phone and one office staffer, named Evelyn, actually hung up on me when I called to verify they had completed required registration with a drug company in order to administer a particular testosterone replacement therapy. I would not recommend Dr. Vick because of his staff's poor performance.
