I was not impressed with Dr. Vascik. I do not want him doing surgery on me and I definitely do not want steroid injections. He did not spend the time I needed on alternative options to my problem. His manner was abrupt and condescending. I am looking for another doctor who will listen to my needs.

Dr. Vascik is a great doctor, my pain from my back has lessened leaps and bounds from where I was before my surgery. When he asks me a question he actually listens to my answer without cutting me off in mid sentence. He is the most considerate doctor I've seen in years. If most doctors had his conditioning it would definatly be a better health care system.
