Dr. Vawter is great. His appointments happen on time, he is personable, and he takes the time to explain things when necessary. The ability to contact him via email is outstanding. His staff is also pleasant and effective...I highly recommend him!

Dr. Vawter is "no nonsense" in getting to the medical problem of his patient, taking care of it properly, and doing all of this in a caring manner, with a well-run office.

Dr. James Vawter is one the finest and most knowledgeable physicians I have known in my lifetime. He is always up-to-speed on new medications that become available. He knows the good ones from the bad ones. He has been available via email 24-7 for a nominal fee. He is the most service minded Doctor a person could ever find. That is why he has been not only my Doctor for two decades but my entire family is under his care. I highly recommend his services.

 |  Rude receptionist  |  show details

Not only is she rude on the phone, like your disturbing her, she's rude in person. I have heard her talking to her son, a personal phone call and she was very threatening to him. I have heard her treat a patient curtly and rude. Dr Vawter and Tierney are both fantastic doctors, the receptionist...... not so much so.
