    How was your appointment with Dr. Vega?

    Jan 27, 2023
    JANUARY 20, 2023 - Intercostal Thoracic Surgery. On your “share your experience” request card, you use the fluffy-marketing-term, “Patient-Centered-Care” (PCC). Dr. Vega is down on the front-lines, one-on-one with the patient in pain and in need of his help and guidance. He could have written the PCC book for others to follow. Dr. Dennis Vega is not only care-centered, he listens, empathizes, and follows up on every minoot detail of my now near-painless-surgery. Thank you!
