in CrystAL City Mo |
Dr Vaness has performed two knee surgeries one on each knee. Was very happy with the outcome on both.
in Farmington, MO |
Money hungry and two faced. Jekyll and hyde. I saw him prior to a relative's surgery and he was all smiles and friendly. Two days later -- his typical arrogant, self-centered self. He is not the only ortho in the Farmington, MO area if you catch my drift. He performed surgery on me and later another doc looked at my (previous) x-rays and said I did not need surgery. What more needs said?
