Dr.Vertrees and her staff were very knowledgeable about my condition and the everyday accommodations that are needed that most people forget. For instance, light, especially over head flourescent light, is a major trigger for my migraines and Dr. Vertrees not only acknowledged the issue without any prompting from me, but also made adjustments in the exam room as a preventative measure. The drive to see Dr. Vertrees is over an hour and in heavy traffic on busy interstates, all of which are stressful for me. Having one less thing to worry about triggering a migraine on these days is a blessing. Having a doctor that recognizes and reacts to my issues is a miracle.

She seemed very young. While she seemed an expert on her area of specialization, she seemed unfamiliar with emotional problems such as panic attacks or PTSD. I think she will gain this experience in time.
