I was referred to Dr.Vale, some 10 years ago. He is the most compassionate physician I have known and trust his judgement when it comes to my health. I wish he was not only a "Speciality Physician" but one I could see always for every problem. Do not hesitate to book an appointment when it comes to Neuro-Surgery and or/second opinions.
Df Vale is an excellent neurosurgeon who operated on me back in Sept 2013 for the removal of tumors found in the pituitary gland and my right eye vision was restored. He ia a very caring doctor who made sure of giving me the best post op care. I love his bedside manners, his thoughtfulness, and concern for me. He still keeping an eye on me to make sure that the tumors don't grow back. A Fantastic neurosurgeon1 !
I LIKED HIS MANNER REAL WELL. I HAVE HAD THREE DIFFERENT OPINIONS OVER THE COUSE OF THREE YEARS AND THEY HAVE ALL BEEN DIFFERENT BELIEVE IT OR NOT, SO WHAT DO YOU DO? I DO NOT UNDERSTAND THIS HOWEVER I AM HAVING TROUBLE AGAIN SO I AM GOING TO SEE HIM AGAIN. HE WANTS TO REMOVE THE TUMOR BUT I AM SO SCARED. I HAVE HAD 50 SURGERIES OVER THE COUSE OF MY 50 YEARS OF LIFE AND NONE OF THEM SCARE ME LIKE THIS ONE. I GUESS I HAVE TO PUT THE TRUST IN HIM AND HE SEEMS LIKE A PERSON I COULD DO THAT WITH. I DON'T KNOW YET WE WILL SE THIS WEEK WHEN I TALK TO HIM AGAIN. BUT OVERALL I FEEL HE IS AVERY GOOD SURGEON AND VERY SERIOUS AT WHAT HE DOES.
