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...more

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.
