Chandler, AZ |
Dr. Vats is an EXCELLENT physician. She is very caring and concerned about your situation. She takes her time explaining things to make sure you understand your options. She performed nose surgery for my husband and was great explaining things ahead of time and post op. He had some complications after the surgery and she was able to see him right away. We both think she's great and would highly recommend Dr. Vats for ENT and equilibrium issues.

Dr. Vats is an AMAZING ENT Dr., and Human Being. She takes her time, explains everything down to the smallest detail, she is knowledgeable and is very hands on and involved with the treatment and care of her patients. She is also amiable, completely likeable and has a GREAT personality. I truly feel lucky and blessed to have such a wonderful doctor. Thank You Dr. Vats!

If we could give Dr. Vats 100 stars we would. We were visiting AZ from UT last year family when my daughter had her tonsils hemorrhage on her 12th day. We had been to one hospital and then went to second hospital in hopes to find a ENT Dr. There is a shortage of ENT's in the area. Had Dr. Vats not showed up, I don't think my daughter would have survived. Dr. Vats showed up at a crucial time and saved my daughter's life. She is an extraordinary doctor and knows what she is doing. Highly recommend

I would definitely refer friends and family to Dr. Vats. She has a calming and sweet disposition which reflects in her manner toward her patients. I am 53 and had white spots in and on my tonsils. I knew I needed to have them removed as they were bothering me every couple of weeks lately. A week after using the last of my antibiotic prescribed by my primary Dr. I had another sore throat. Dr. Vats told me and my hubby separately how long it would take to recover. She was absolutely right.
in Phoenix, AZ |
I went to Dr. Vats for a serious nose bleed problem. My nose would bleed spontaneously 4-5 times per day regardless of the weather or humidity. She refused to cauterize my nose and prescribed an ointment. So for the last 4 years I have applied ointment every few weeks when the nosebleeds would return. Yesterday I went to another ENT and he cauterized my nose on the spot. Because of the severity of the sore it will take several visits to complete the treatment by my new doctor.
Mesa, AZ |
Arrived, handed in paperwork and told to sit down. After waiting more than an hour, was told that my appointment was not for today, and they marked me for a no show. Front office staff rude and condescending about the whole ordeal. They messed up an appointment, and claimed that they NEVER make mistakes (literally verbatim said they never make mistakes) and that it was my fault and that I'd have to wait another 2 months for another appointment, when I already waited 3 months for this appointment

This doctor was not treat for the patient properly. She was talking on the phone with her friend while checking my ears, did not listen to me when I tried to explain the problems. As the results she had found nothing wrong with my ears then sent me home with the same problems. I had to pay her hundreds of dollars for nothing. SAD!!!
in Chandler, AZ |
I lost 50% hearing and was experiencing tinnitus (constant ringing in my ear) which prevented me from sleeping and functioning. She painlessly removed the ear wax on my ear drum in an efficient manner. She was very personable and intelligent.

Regretfully I am writing this poor experience, but the positive point is that no one should go through the mental behavior of this poor excuse of a doctor. This person bedside manner had mix messages. Her examination of my ear was not appropriate. She did not use gloves, the item to view in my ear had wax on the item, she did not take care to remove wax before putting the item in my other ear, I had to request she do so. Her rudeness was not necessary and sh had no patience.
in Queen Creek, AZ |
Dr. Vats is great and so is the office staff. I would highly recommend her.
