04/08/13 1 1 1 1 Very unhappy that this doctor sent my stepMother for psychiatric evaluation for all her pain instead of checking her thoroughly. It turns out she has lung cancer which has spread throughout her body and the prognosis is grim. If only he had taken her seriously maybe it could have been caught in time :(. I hope my Father can find another dr because this one should be fired  Respond

16/10/12 5 3 2 4 I have been going to Dr Vaughn for over 12 years. Apart from one serious mis diagnosis he has been good, punctual and great with paperwork.I find that in recent years he no longer listens to what I am saying but only applies textbook solutions that do not consider me as an indivudsual.Average visit time for my complex health issues is usuallt cut to 5-6 minutes. I am very displeased.

19/04/12 5 4 5 5 I have been going to Dr. Vaughan since 1978. He is great.That is why I still go to him. He is kind, thought-full and listens to me and does not hold back his comments on what I can do to help myself. He has a computer in front of him and looks up what the last visits were about. He, like many Doctors have may patients and cannot necessarily remember each and every visit, but he remembers my name etc.  Respond

31/10/11 4 5 5 5 Hope he around for many more years. Glad to see that his clinic has new doctors as well. No hesitation in recommending this clinic to all. Not sure if Dr. Vaughan is taking new patients, but if he is.. consider yourself very lucky to have him as your GP.  Respond

30/09/10 5 5 4 5 Dr. Vaughan has been my gp for almost 30 years. He is extremely knowledgeable but often rushes and almost always forgets what we discussed on previous visits. As a young woman suffering with bipolar disorder I have often felt misunderstood or dismissed. Yet, I have stayed with him as he is so knowledgeable.  Respond

10/07/09 1 5 1 3 Dr. Vaughn just does not get me or something. He has literally yelled at me a couple times when I've asked for things and he feels he is too busy to help me. I would never recommend this doctor and I do not feel comfertable as a female with this doctor. I will be firing him.  Respond

08/06/09 4 5 5 5 Dr. V has been my MD for decades. I appreciate the fact he listens to me and considers/values my thoughts about my own body. I will stay with him as long as he continues to be current in his knowledge and performance.  Respond

01/07/08 3 4 2 2 Dr. Vaughan seems to be a bit forgetful about what advice he has given me from one visit to the next. I ended up with problems because he prescribed something that was widely known to cause flare-ups with the skin condition he was prescribing it for. He has also given me incorrect information when prescribing antibiotics to me, as to how often I should take them. I don't have much confidence in him anymore.  Respond
