Review of Dr. Vakante-Jankovic


Worst experiancei have with Dr. vakante and nurse Cindy that relays the message is even worse talks down to you like your nothing Has no care for patient and has no patience at all and very rude, oh one thing that really bothers the doctor would never talk to you the nurses always call .. I would definitely not recommend this doctor or southwestern medical to anybody after what I had to go through this doctor is not helpful and not understanding not family doctor I am more of item to them.

Review of Dr. Goodman


Dr. Goodman is exceptional. I have two boys and I trust her completely with their care. She isn’t one to overreact, she is very level headed about the path we need to take when they have a health issue. My boys really like her sense of humor and they have a trusting relationship with her. If we could have just one Dr for everything I would choose Dr. Goodman.

Dr Whalen is a great Dr. Easy to talk with and takes time to answer questions. I trust his suggestions and recommend him to anyone looking for a good Dr.

Review of Dr. Vakante-Jankovic

- in Elma, NY |

I have been seeing Dr. Vakante-Jankovic for over 10 years. I have also referred family and friends to Dr. Vakante-Jankovic. Whatever the reason that I have had an appointment with Dr. Vakante-Jankovic, I have always been given the courtesy of having all of my concerns and questions answered. I have always left the office knowing that I was given the best care.

Review of Dr. Vakante-Jankovic

- in Buffalo, NY |

I would highly recommend Dr. Vakante-Janovic to all my family & friends. She is a genuine caring person and always willing to take whatever time she can to help you in every appointment you make and for whatever your appointment is for; she gives her finest, professional advice and her explanation for the advice she gives.

Review of Dr. Wnek

-Buffalo, NY |

Horrible scheduling. Be prepared to wait at least 2 hours to see her (and then only be there for 15 minutes). This has been the case EVERY visit for the past 3 years so it's not a one-time ordeal. Does not address concerns and brushes off complaints, referring me to primary doctor. Why am I paying a specialist $300 per visit to interpret labs when she wants my primary to handle actual disease and symptom management. DO NOT recommend. Will be transferring providers.

I have her complete attention on every visit. She listens intently and eagerly answers all my questions. The appointment isn't over until I am completely satisfied.
