Dr. Vasquez is a board certified general surgeon with 20 years of experience who considers attentive listening as one of his most important roles as a physician. His philosophy of care emphasizes empowering his patients to be active participants in their surgical care. He accomplishes this by having clear and in-depth discussions about a person’s disease process while striving to ensure that his patients feel like he is addressing not only the physical component of surgery, but also the emotional and social effect that comes from having surgery. Patients often tell Dr. Vasquez with a smile that he “is not like most surgeons” and he takes this as a compliment as it highlights the bond he forges with patients during their most trying times.
