I felt confident that he understood my health concerns as he was able to carefully communicate the next steps and options available. He answered all of my questions to my satisfaction. Very personable. Staff was friendly and welcoming also.

Everyone in the front office was very kind-even called the day before to let me know that they might need to perform something that my particular insurance may not cover. Dr. Vaughn was everything I could have hoped for as anervous patient. He listened to my concerns, explained what he was doing, and went through all the treatment options. He even personally called over an hour after I left to give me the name and number of a specialist dentist he mentioned to me during my visit. This will likely be an ongoing issue for me, but knowing I can go back to Dr. Vaughn very much puts me at ease.

Dr. Vaughn is one of the nicest doctors I’ve met. He took a call from me before my visit (I had already seen one of his partners, who was unfortunately not available) and helped me to address some urgent concerns Ihad until I was able to see him. When I did see him, he had already carefully reviewed my chart and discussed my case with his partner who saw me before (also booked on ZocDoc, and someone I’d also recommend). He scoped my sinuses and made a recommendation for new medicine that would address my drug sensitivities. I was concerned about my sinuses because I had to go back to school this week, and he was able to put me at ease and give advice on next steps. Thank you, Dr. Vaughn!
