Dr. Jennifer L Vacca has the following 1 specialty
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

No human empathy. Should not be in the healthcare profession. Nurses say she is nonprofessional ... very moody and does not work well with staff. With patients, she is also just going through the motions trying to get through her workday. She shows no interest in being a health care provider to help patients. She is in over her head and takes it out on staff and patients depending on her mood for the day. I understand that doctors are under an extreme amount of stress from their employers (Kaiser in Dr Vacca's case). Health care is under duress due to this, but also due to people in the profession who give up on the system (i.e. CARING for patients, bedside manner, treating staff with respect and gratefulness for their help) themselves and then their patients do not receive proper care or time. This doctor is not confident in herself as a doctor and uses her intimidation tactics disguised behind moodiness to cover up her own insecurities as a doctor. I am a patient very disappointed in a system that does not care for people and a system which does not reward health care professionals who do excel at providing exceptional health care to their patients. Doctors like Dr Vacca just perpetuate treating people poorly. If a nurse is treated with grumpiness, disrespect, and an attitude of I'm better than you because I'm the doctor, how will that nurse treat their next patient? It is a perpetuating cycle. I would suggest starting with treating your coworkers with respect and as though they are equals, then do the same with your patients, and then you can say that even in a broken system, you had integrity and cared about the people around you every day. Otherwise, health care is not the place you should be.
Dr. Vacca was my PCP. I am a Breast Cancer Survivor and was seeking reconstructive surgery after a double mastectomy that was complicated by MERSA. I submitted to her my Medical History which she never reviewed or had it entered into my medical records they were lost! I asked her for to write a letter to my employer explaining why I was presently unable to return to work which she refused. Then asked a referral for reconstructive surgery within KPMG. She never advised me of my rights or that I seek an advocate. On the next visit I told her that I was not feeling good couldn't sleep, hot n cold flashes no energy and requested that she order blood. work up - instead she wanted me to see a shrink. This so called Dr. needs read my Medical history and stop giving me more prescriptions never once did she exam me only typed on the computer. I wonder how much she receives in bonuses by capitating cost - I wouldn't let her treat my goldfish ! Beware of this Quack. We grew up trusting Doctors believing that they had your best interest not anymore it's all about there pocket !
