While Dr. Vicks may be very qualified in his field - his bedside manner is lacking sorely ! After 3 visits he still did not recognize us. Nor did he remember anything about our previous visits. It was starting all over each visit. I'm sure he sees a lot of patients but I think he should take the time to review the chart before starting the visit. I would not want him making decisions that could make or break my health & kidneys , when he can't even remember 1 thing about me.
