Vanash was friendly and caring. One of the few doctors to take the time to explain everything in a simple way and to answer all of my questions. Before my surgery he explained in detail all of the possible outcomes, good and bad and still managed to put my mind at rest about the surgery. During my re overt period, he would also try to include me in decisions regarding my treatment before giving his recommendations to the nurses or other doctors so that I felt like part of the process. I hope that I never have to have this type of major surgery ever again but if I do, Vanash will be one of the people that I will want in the room.
