Review of Dr. Vigna

-Buffalo , NY |

Spinal decompression went horribly wrong. First 8 sessions went good and on session 9 the spinal decompression machine malfunctioned and started to squeeze my neck so hard that I was in a lot of pain. I kept pushing emergency stop botton but it didn’t stop. There is no one watching you so you are on your own. When the session was over and they stopped the mashine I couldn’t get up and started passing out and was extremely dizzy, disoriented and in a lot of pain.

Review of Dr. Vigna

- in Portville |

Highly recommend Dr. Vigna and his staff. Love his conservative approach and not rushing to operate immediately. Yes, wait times can be a bit much but the way I look at it, is, when it comes time for your turn, he is going to spend the time he needs with you too. It's worth the wait. Both my husband and I have been to see him. Fortunately my issue was resolved with conservative treatment while my husband's required surgery. Very very happy and we travel over 2 hours to get to his office.

Review of Dr. Vigna

- in Stafford, NY |

Dr. Vigna did my back surgery. What a great Doctor. He explained what was going on with my back in a way that no other doctor has over the past 20 years that I have been in pain. They all told me to live with it. Not Dr. Vigna he got busy and investigated where the pain was coming from and took care of it. He is a very pleasant , down to earth doctor to talk to and he makes sure you understand what is going on. Also his staff is very friendly. Most of the time I have not had to wait very long.

Review of Dr. Vigna

Dr. Vigna gave me my life back. After being hit by a drunk driver and suffering with a huge herniated disc in my lower back, I was referred to him. I could barley stand up straight, was in so much pain and had bad sciatica in both my legs and my feet would go dead. After surgery I remember saying "I can feel my feet again". I thank him for giving me my life back and fixing me. The new office is amazing, staff always friendly, and extremely helpful. Would recommend anyone to him.

Review of Dr. Vigna

- in Niagara Falls, NY |

After several visits in a 6 month timeframe I keep getting put off and told to come back for another appt. I was told I clearly need surgery on my back and neck but keep putting it off and referring me to other specialists for different things. With very little mobility and pain levels through the roof my frustration level is maxed out.

Review of Dr. Vigna

- in Buffalo, NY |

After a longish wait in the waiting room, we met with Dr. Vigna to discuss my wife's back issues(Stenosis T11 , T12, bulging disc at L4,L5 . He thoroughly explained the issues she was having, loss of strength in her right leg, numbness/tingling in her foot. He showed us detailed models of the hardware that would be inserted to support her back. Everyone in the office was helpful and accommodating to my wife. Dr. Vigna takes his time with each and every patient. He's the best surgeon in the area.

Review of Dr. Vigna

If you want long waits, rude office staff, disorganized and ill prepared ( never uploaded mris, etc), I rated him one star because my appointment was at 11:30am and I was not seen until 3:30 pm. When I questioned his office staff at 3 how much longer it would be because I was in alot of pain and needed to leave to get my children, I was ignored. I became agitated and upset and they discharged me as a patient saying I was verbally abusive and wrote this in my record. Very disorganized.

Review of Dr. Vigna

I'm 10 years removed now from a spinal fusion surgery performed by Dr. Vigna. He helped me when no one else could, he gave me my life back and for that I am grateful! A very smart man who is great at what he does! He will listen to your concerns and answer them fully and not leave you guessing. After 10 years my pain level is still tolerable without any type of medication at all, maybe a Tylenol on my worst days
