Dr Vaska has been my cardiologist for over 20 years. I owe my life to him.

Review for Dr. Vaska

Dr. Rothrock replaced my right hip. Unbelievable recovery. Threw out my walker at day five and cane at day seven. I am 71 years old and overweight. The pain has been very minimal. He has a huge fan club of past patients and I have joined.
