Dr. Vez is a highly skilled and compassionate neurosurgeon for whom I have the utmost respect. His timely intervention and skill saved my life. I'm a ruptured brain aneurysm survivor, Grade 5 subarachnoid hemorrhage; 200 ML. bleed on my brain. My surgery was very high risk. I was comatose on arrival and grateful to still be here, thanks to Dr. Vez.
Dr. Vez's credentials speak for themselves and I don't doubt them. He explains conditions and procedures adequately enough to help patients understand them. The diagnosis just wasn't quite on the mark. Vez diagnosed me with fluid in the brain (though the MRI reports wadifferent condition) and an unknown mass in the pituitary gland. During our ten minute consultation, he appeared slightly concerned about relieving both conditions as quickly as possible. During the second consultation two months later, he stood near his desk, detached as if he was ready to walk out the door any second! Although two MRIs were performed, there were two big red flags for me. Firstly, the lack of further examinations and scans to ensure both conditions were properly diagnosed such as a neuropsychological evaluation, and a CT scan (the MRI report even recommended them). Secondly, after two months of waiting for results from the second MRI and endless calls to his office being avoided, a surgery date had been set. Forget complications from a possibly improper diagnosis, I was all set for a biopsy and shunt placement. Both highly invasive procedures would be performed on the same day! He told me a nuclear brain scan would be performed before the biopsy. I was alarmed that the biopsy was being performed without the nuclear brain scan. His response was something to the effect of "It won't make a difference if you have it or not." It makes a difference to me! I don't want to be opened up if I don't need to be. Dr Vez may be excellent in other cases yet his hasty decisions have brought pain and strife to my family. I will never set foot in his office again.
