Dr. Vital is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about his craft and the best feeling in the world is walking out of a doctor’s office having results in one way or another, good or bad, so that you know and have piece of mind. So many other doctors had me leaving feeling lost without any answers. I have already booked my next follow up visits and am excited at how confident Dr. Vital feels about fixing my current situations. I wanted to make sure anyone who goes on here searching like I did would see my recent review and how great I left feeling.

A first-time visit to this office. I was Extremely impressed with the precision as to which new patients are brought in, history collected, initial tests performed, then met with the Physicians assistant to discuss needs, and lastly to meet with the doctor to discuss path forward. This is a role model office staff, doctor, and set of patient processes. I couldn’t be more impressed…Amazingly impressed! Staff, physicians asst., and doctor were great listeners, friendly, and extremely informative.
