Prior to surgery nurses were making fun of his name but concluded saying they would trust only him if they needed an operation. Ask about him in the waiting room of the hospital and you get the same response, added to that he is said to be the only one to come down without fail to see the family when he is finished with the surgery (no matter how busy he is), as he did for my husband. Dr.V had his nurse call my husband every thirty minutes to keep him informed about the surgery...

Very humble, yet confident. I immediately felt at ease and trusted him. A christian man that took the time to pray with me before surgery. Never did I feel rushed or pressured. He took the time to answer all my questions.
