Great Doctor

What a wonderful doctor. I had surgery over 27 years ago and was scared to ever have to have it again. Doctor Vierra was great. The best part was there was no pain and no need for pain meds. If I ever need surgery again he is the only one I will go to.

The best!

This is my second surgery by Dr. Vierra. I am so impressed with him and his expertise. It is the day after he removed by gall bladder and I feel pretty darn good. If you want an EXCELLENT surgeon, this is your man. P.S. My first surgery with him was a Heller Myotomy, an uncommon surgery, and he was brilliant!
