Dr. Vauhgan referred to a specialist. It turns out I have risk factors for a condition. Cystologic procedure is scheduled next week at the urology clinic, for procedure that is cleary indicated. I would recommed Dr. Vaughan for any executive position at the Medical School for Hospital such as Chief of Staff, Vice-Chief of Staff or Dean. She is very compassionate and appropriate for each individual patient.
The physician did not diagnose any new problems nor give me any new medications. We discussed a new symptom which she tested for and explained the test results would take about a week. The care provider quickly left the room to call the nurse to give a blood test but did not return except for a quick comment. I had a couple of other questions to ask which I felt rushed to ask when the doctor returned. Overall I would have liked a few more minutes to review my overall health issues.

Dr. Laura Vaughan was exceptional.
Always very good!
Dr. Vaughan is an excellent care giver as is the staff as well.
The services I received from the care provider are among the best I experienced in other states before moving to California last year.
We were rushed terribly. Before the doctor had a chance to examine me, there was a knock at the door to inform that the next patient is there. I have never experienced that EVER in any doctor's office. Doctor advised me to request for 40 minutes appt. instead of 20 that was scheduled. Shouldn't the person who scheduled annual exam knew that? The whole appointment was RUSHED and felt very bad at the end. I was not given the prescription requested and the FIT test that was needed to be given. When asked I was told FIT test was out of stock. Many things that went wrong with this appointment.
I always know I am in "good hands" with Dr. Vaughan.
outstanding, compassionate , brilliant MD! very happy with care!
Dr. Vaughan is exceptional in her position as Primary Care Physician. I have the best possible.
I would recommend my doctor highly to anyone who needs a doctor, but I don't often fine myself seeing anyone who needs a recommendation.
Dr. Vaughan is the first Lady doctor for Tara. All before were men. I have been around Doctor's and hospitals all my life, mother and wife were both RN's. Doctor Vaughan is extremely professional and very understanding to Tara's condition. I am VERY pleased with the care she provides for Tara!
Care provider Dr. Vaughan was outstanding as usual.
Dr Vaughan did her "homework" well. Even though a first visit, it seemed like she already knew me and my medical conditions.
Dr. Vaughan should be giving a class on patient care. She makes me feel like it's ok to ask questions, even if I think they are silly. She shows concern. She listens without interrupting and explains things clearly. I wish I would have found her a long time ago.
Very responsive physician
Excellent bedside manner.
BEST DOCTOR!!!!!!!! can't say enough positive things about this physician !!!!!!!! very pleased with service !
Giving Dr. Vaughan "excellent" in all areas of my visit -- Am delighted she is my new primary care giver -- have full confidence in her -- and have already recommended her to others.
Always excellent! I feel fortunate to have Dr. Vaughan as my doctor.
I am very fortunate to have Dr. Vaugn as my new Primary Care Physician. I was impressed that she was thoroughly familiar with my chart and issues and quite pleased that she spoke to me and not the computer. She was also thorough in her care and treatment, showed empathy and concern, and I felt completely at ease. who could ask for more in a PCP. I look forward to a long term association!
in a dr. visit, you don't always get the info you want to hear, but delivered Dr. Vaughn delivers the information well, answers questions, explains next steps and always stayed engaged with me as a patient. And as a person.
I am fortunate to have Dr.Vaughan as a Provider. She is exceptional.

Very happy I found Laura
Dr. Vaughan provides me excellent care.
I am extremely pleased with Dr. Vaughn. I was nervous going to a new doctor and she put me to ease right away. She has a warm, friendly demeanor and is efficient and knowledgeable. I feel very fortunate to have found a doctor like her!
This was my first appointment with Dr. Vaughan and as soon as we met I started unloaded some very personal, troubling life issues on her. I would like to thank her for her kindness, empathy and feedback on a variety of health fronts. I am glad to have met Dr. Vaughan and to be a Stanford patient.
I wish to change my care provider to another doctor who seems a bit more engaged and shares knowledge with me about my condition or possible solutions.
The doctor was excellent. I recently switched from a HMO and I could definitely tell the difference in care. I felt like the doctor actually cared about me and my well being, not just another number on the board.
I consider Dr. Vaughan a partner with me in achieving the very best health care and knowledge I can.
I recommend Stanford clinics all the time! This is a great place!
Dr Vaughan was awesome!
Dr. Vaughan listened to my concerns about prostate cancer and included me in thought and her knowledge and expertise and ordered a test. In the past she literally saved my life by ordering a endoscopic biopsy that found early stage cancer. By doing this, she saved my life, as the cancer is usually found at a later and terminal stage. I have 100% confidence in her medical knowledge and experience. I am one of a fortunate few to be walking around because of the early diagnosis.
Dr. Vaughan - trust with my life - she is great.
I love my physician - and during this visit she made me feel very comfortable and spent time discussing test results and made sure I understood what was going on.
I am so happy with Dr. Vaughan. I sent her an email late at night to ask to see her the coming day or the next day. I had an answer in the morning to come and see her that same afternoon. this was wonderful and she answered all my questions and reassured me.
Provider should be allowed a little more time with patient. Realize I had more to discuss at this visit than usual but still felt rushed.
Dr. Vaughan took her time going through all my conditions, didn't feel rushed like in my prior places.
Dr. Vaughan was calm, friendly, and asked good questions. And her recommendations worked.
Dr.Vaughan is a brilliant, friendly, compassionate doctor. I am so grateful to have such a excellent and wonderful physician.She makes me feel so relaxed with her calm and friendly approach to my medical issues and I come away knowing I have the best medical care! She is the BESTS!
My husband of almost 50 years died a few weeks ago. Dr. Vaughan was very helpful with my medical symptoms of not sleeping and heartburn, as well as very compassionate emotionally.
Excellent care and support with any and all questions by Dr. Vaughan
One of the best primary care physicians I have met.
I can not praise Dr. Vaughan enough. She is very knowledgeable and smart but also has such a caring and kind "bedside manner". You never feel rushed. She takes all the time that is needed to discuss any concerns you may have. She is the best PCP I have ever had. My husband is also a patient of Dr. Vaughan. He works very long hours and has an unpredictable schedule. Dr. Vaughan is incredibly flexible with her schedule to try to get him into the office for a visit. My husband has never "liked" doctors. But he is very, very impressed with Dr. Vaughan.
It was worth the long wait to see Dr. Vaughan. I'm very happy to have her as my doctor.
I was late for my appt, but was able to see Dr. Vaughan within an hour. She made me feel that time was not an issue and gave me as much time discussing my care as I needed.
Dr. Vaughan gave me important information regarding over the counter medications I am taking. She is outstanding.

Dr. Vaughan's medical knowledge and medical knowledge of my specific medical conditions is outstanding.
Dr. Vaughan is a warm and caring doctor. She makes me feel that I can talk to her for health problem I have.

Doctor was very thorough and made great suggestions to address my concerns. Very impressed. Assistant was VERY attentive when I got dizzy after a vaccination. Had me lie down in the exam room and stayed with me until it passed, then let me stay a while longer while she kept checking back just to be sure. Very, very kind.
Dr. Vaughan is knowledgeable, empathetic, courteous, and thorough. I would highly recommend her to family and friends. Her team and students are incredibly lucky to have her. I very much look forward to my next visit with her and am thrilled to establish my primary care at Stanford with her.

Dr. Vaughan was knowledgeable, helpful, responsive to my medical needs & made me glad she was my doctor.
I would like my doctor to know more about nutrition & supplements -
Toward end of appt. the doctor seemed somewhat hostile. This was very strange since my experience with her had previously been very positive.
Dr. Vauhan is the BEST of the BEST primary care physician. She truly listens and is compassionate and caring. She is knowledgeable but recognizes she can't know everything and provides me with referrals and resources to empower me to maintain my health.
Very caring MD.
Very good experience with Dr. Vaughn. I have only positive feelings in any other doctors I had.
