doesn't introduce his interns or residents that come into the room with him, didn't even wait for consent re: cortisone injectionwas going to do it regardless. chewing gum, using words like crap and hell. said arthrogram mri was useless and ultrasound guided injection was overkill. said prev surgery was unnecessary. didn't want me to speak for my minor teen child re: medications told me to let her answer. he's got a ton of negative reviews, i should have researched more. it's a waste of time to see this immature doctor .

I have seen Dr. Vasquez before. I was amazed at how quickly he was able to diagnose the problem and immediately started solving it. X-rays were taken and interpreted in a very short time. I was very satisfied.

I am 100% satisfied with Doctor Vazquez since the first appointment. I have seen him a few times already and always pleasant about his professionalism.He always took his time to answer every question I had and never felt he was ina rush I had surgery 5 months ago and could not be any happier. .I am almost pain free and training 6 times a week biking, swimming and running. I will never going to forget Dr. Vazquez and what he did for me. I would recommend this doctor to anyone and will not hesitate to see him again if I ever have any other issue.
