I had a short initial visit with Dr. Vranic, who reviewed my history and concerns. He told me what he was thinking for my testing, and answered my questions, He set up the necessary testing, and after testing. I had a consult with his PA and received a recommendation for an angiogram of my carotids. This was performed, and before I left the facility, I received both a written and verbal results from Dr. Vranic. A follow-up call was received the day after the procedure to make sure I was problem-free. Every contact, starting with Dr. Vranic, the PA, and all the nurses and medical technicians were very professional and showed real caring for me and my comfort.

Overall this place is great. The staff is very friendly & knowledgeable.... not to mention accommodating by still fitting in my surgery the same day a Veo driver decided not to show up to pick me up for my surgical appointment that day. That one act of accommodation to me shows that if they can help you they will. If they can't help you or at least not right then, please try not to take it personally there's a very good chance that's it's an impossibility at that moment but they will help you as soon as they can. With my surgical appointment, they could've just as easily said too bad & rescheduled that day's surgery for another time which would probably have pushed me out another week & would have dragged out what ended up being a series of 5 surgeries over a total of 6 weeks on even longer. But they didn't they assessed the situation real quick & saw that it was still doable & we got it done. When things get tough they will roll with the punches with you to figure it out. That's my favorite thing about how Western Vascular operates.... it's their versatility & how they work together & with you when unforeseen things happen. They are constantly assessing situations & thinking of you & sometimes for you at all times. Their not all black & white they understand life's grey areas & if need be they will call an audible just like Dr. Poalini did & change the play at the line of scrimmage to do what they feel is in your best interest. Thank you Dr. Paolini again for your help & for making a few judgment calls in my best interest instead of just making up or following some "procedure" that didn't make any sense because that's what procedures are for. I've been in more than a few medical establishments where they will literally follow the procedure to the detriment of the patient just because it's their "procedure" and their policy is to always follow procedure even if it doesn't make sense at that moment. I'm sure a few of you out there have to & know exactly what I'm talking about. But thankfully you don't have to worry about that here. So please take my word for it, the Doctors & staff that work at Western Vascular only have 1 procedure, which is to look out for your best interest as the patient. That procedure overrides every other procedure that they have. Thanks again guys & Dr. Paolini for everything.

My husband has been a patient for six years and we have never questioned the expertise and follow-up we have received from this practice. Recently he had to undergo major surgery and I would like to thank Amber (who schedules the surgeries) for taking the time to make sure we had all the information we needed and answer all my questions.
