Marina, CA |
Dr. Vetter clearly explained the procedure (parathyroidectomy), best and worst case scenarios. He has a wry sense of humor, just enough to put one at ease. The surgery went smoothly and as predicted, and the follow-up instructions were clear. He made sure to ask if I had questions at every turn, and had the patience to answer them. Excellent doctor!

If I could give this man ZERO stars, I would. *WORST EXPERIENCE EVER* I do not have faith in this doctor or his practice. Two failed surgery don't let Dr. Vetter operate on you.. Before my operation, my problem was minor and he told me it would be solved with a simple surgery, two failed surgery and four years later, after my condition worsened from his surgery, I am looking for a doctor who can help me fix what Dr. Vetter has added to it.
Hollister, CA |
Don't waste your time. I scheduled 3 different appointments with him and a few days before each appointment, his office would call and unapologetically say that he was actually going to be out of the office that day and that I would have to re-schedule.

Well I went for surgery to remove cancer stage 1 on my tongue and it all wasn't removed and now it spread to my neck and now I have stage 4 cancer and have to have surgery,chemo,radiation and pray for a miracle.

I just want to inform the people who are looking for a good doctor, that there are other Doctors to go to. Before my operation, my problem was minor and he told me it would be solved with a simple surgery, and now three years later, after my condition which immediately worsened from his surgery, I am still looking for a doctor who can help me fix my initial problem and help me recover from what Dr. Vetter has added to it. I repeatedly returned to his office after surgery to no avail/
