Dr. Charles V Phillips has the following 2 specialties

  • Surgery
  • Vascular Surgery

    Vascular surgeons treat and manage disorders in your veins, arteries and your lymphatic system to ensure blood circulation in your heart and in brain is the best it can be. They're well-versed on how your vascular system works with the rest of your body and they can treat conditions that may cause blockages or buildup.
    They can perform many of the same diagnostic testing as interventional radiologists can, such as angiography and MRIs. In addition to diagnosis, they provide critical care and treatment for aneurysms, artery blockages and trauma injuries that involve your veins. They can also help patients manage diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol as well as treat artery disease. Treatment for more serious cases might include bypass surgery or surgery to remove plaque.

A doctor's doctor

Whenever I've had surgery recommended by my doctor, I ask him where he would go to have that same surgery. Dr. Phillips was the first name that two of my doctors mentioned.

Allergies are not paid attention to.

Dr. Phillips would not prescribe me any pain killers other than vicoden after my gallbladder removal surgery. I am allergic to vicoden and not only did he still try to prescribe it but refused to give me anything else after I informed the staff I could not take it. He said ibuprofen should be fine. After a night of no pain meds I called my regular physician who prescribed me pain medication I was able to take. Taking it as directed I will run out tomorrow and am still having a lot of pain and drainage. I saw Dr. Phillips today and he said everything looked fine and sad that if I wanted he could give me antibiotics but he didn't think I needed them. And that again I did not need anymore pain killers after he made me cry from pushing on my stomach so hard. I again called my regular doctor and he took care of it. Pain management and patient health is not important to him at all.

worst I could of ever had!!

he may be a good surgeon, but who wants a surgeon that is rude and mean? I know I didn't appericate hime pulling me by my neck within a week after having my side sliced open. He was the most inconsiderate person/ doctor I have ever encountered. And then he took what I said to the heart and cried like a baby!! However thankfully there was an awesome suregon with in his office that was respectful & generous that ended up taking care of me cause I refuse to ever see that man again..... Worst experience ever... If you want a surgeon that cares about how you feel, DO NOT SEE HIM!!!
