They made me wait more than an hr in waiting area and let who came after me in. There was a glitch in order of ppl to be called i guess. The Doctor suggested me surgery by looking at it justfor a min.. Decided by looking at xray. I was hoping if surgery could have been avoided, but will go with it as suggested

I loved dr. vance. what I did not like is the wait time. and that the medical assistant and the PA . were very nice but not to attentive as I had to keep repeating the same answers to them. thatwas very annoying! also the first visit the medical assistant ask me to take off my short to get a xray and she gave me a little gown to cover the front but not the back and I sat out in the hall exposed and had to wait in a hall to be xrayed. first visit I was there 2 hours!!!! I di return only because of dr. vance was very nice!!!!!

I thought that Dr. Vance was great, but his nursing staff was terrible no one was helpful and listened to what I had to say. The nurses were suppose to schedule a MRI immediately, after a few hours passed and Ididn't hear from the imaging department i called the office three times to ask them to fax the request and they got back to me finally asking what cvs I wanted my prescription sent to. I recommend the doctor, but the nursing staff needs help.

I thought Dr. Vance was knowledgeable and understanding of my needs. My issues were with the nurse that greeted me and the nurse in training. The nurse that greeted me was in such a hurry that she didn't listen well andforgot a lot and the person she was training had no idea what to do... I would likely not recommend because of this.

Waited over an hour to see the doctor. Once he found nothing wrong on my X-ray, he didn't even stick around long enough for me to ask him general questions such as, can I exercise and is stretching okay? He wasin and out in 1 minute and I left feeling like another number.
