in Clifton Forge |
I wouldn't recommend him at all. After three weeks of waiting for a MRI they called and said all they could do is refer me to physical therapy. After getting a second opinion. Finding my micness was flipped and MCL and ACL was torn. However, leaving his office I was told to put weight on my knee it was the only way it would get better. After wasting three weeks of being off of work and no answers. I finally have had my first surgery. I will be having another.

Dr. Vess shows a level of professionalism that is quite direct, competent. He fully explains the situation, makes recommendations, listens to my concerns and then proceeds with his actions. He works within his area of expertise and is quite willing to cooperate with another doctor for a higher level intervention. He can be ebullient, even brusque but always clear.
They did not do vitals..he didn't ask no questions, didn't look at my new patient health form, the nurse didn't even talk to me! He told me to take aleve for the arthritis in my thumbs..didn't tell me what else I could do for it. I finally spoke up and told him its getting harder for me to write with a pen and pick up things..he was like oh well we need to put you on steroids..are you diabetic? He said if it wasn't better in 3wks he would put shots in them and walked out. DO NOT GO TO HIM!
