What People Say About Dr. Anthony Vaca, MD
Reply
Honestly I thought this doctor was arrogant with an ego about a mile high. When I told him I didn't want to take a certain medication because I felt that it wasn't helpful to me. He started puffing up his chest and telling me when I first came in I was psychotic when really I was overly exhausted from stress at work and dealing with a bad manager and I had trouble dealing with anxiety. This man is not very down to earth and makes assumptions and is very one sided in his views.
