Dr. Vora is an outstanding physician. His care consists of looking at all aspects of health and provides suggestions and treatment that focuses on the needs of the patient. He listens, he evaluates, and prescribes with the utmost concern for his patient. Dr. Vora has excellent ability to talk to his patients as I witnessed his kindness to my elderly dad showing him such respect. I have attended lectures, Dr. Vora was the speaker, he communicated information that could be easily understood.

The perseverance & patience with which he has sought my diagnosis is unrivaled by any health provider with whom I have associated over the years. He has been unfailingly patient and kindly while exploring likely options but, most importantly, has put me on the path of resolution. I am personally sorry to see him move on in his profession, but his career still stretches forward, during which I perceive much relief from suffering - and accomplishing patient resolution in a timely manner.
