Dr. Vorster is the best! I had to undergo brain surgery in 2011! ( actually 4 ) This was the toughest time of my life, not only for myself but for my family, and close friends as well!! He is an excellent surgeon! He listens & understands life! I'm so happy to know he's still practicing in Ohio! ??
