Since I was referred to the Doctor I have only seen him twice, come to realize I will see him every six months. Twice a year. Seems to be a good Doctor within my 2 visits. But his support staff SUCKS!! They don't care about returning calls and following up when they're suppose to. On third month for A1C exams you see NP which I don't care for, I came to see the Doctor not a nurse. I or the insurance company should not be billed as Doctor Visit. Seems like all Doctors priorities are money not their patients.

Dr. V is very very nice and smart! He is very through with his work and takes time to listen to what you have to say or ask and always warns me about my weight and how important it is to maintain a healthy diet to live a good quality life. Very sweet person.

We were highly recommended to this Dr. and were really looking forward to having him as a permanent Dr. We were rushed by the nurse that checks your vitals and then he rushed our first visit. He just handed over a monitor and told us to go take a Diabetes Education Class and sent us off with meds to return in 6 weeks. Within those weeks I lost very much weight and felt really fatigues so when I returned to see him I was hoping to have a resolution. Well he rushed me off and said that it was a good thing I had lost weight for my diabetes. When we questioned if maybe the meds was making me feel this way, he got upset and plainly said "Stop taking the Meds then, you'll see what happens". Not what we expected from a professional. Bedside manners are bad, very rude and sarcastic. Will never return no matter how many certificates he has.........
Do not go to this Dr. if you are wanting answers.

Dr. V spent little time with me and did not want to hear of my concerns. When I talked about fatigue and weight gain he quickly said I have a hand to mouth disease!!! I am only slightly over my BMI.... I refused to go back and found another Dr. who found I had critical values to be addressed and now take shots weekly. If I had listened to Dr. V I would be in a critical situation because of his opinion and not because he had labs to back up his rude comment!!!

Unable to diagnose simple problem

Spent about five minutes with me, difficult to get past his language barrier. Unable to diagnose a very simple problem that only took another doctor a moment to realize.
