I saw Dr. VanCura for an upper & lower endoscopys. He found a subtle large flat polyp and had to refer me to another specialist to have it removed. The specialist made this comment upon seeing the photo of the polyp: " He's good! Many doctors would have missed it." It was removed and subsequently, within a short period of time, a cancer formed there. I recently had colon surgery but now cancer free. I feel Dr. VanCura's "good catch" has saved my life.

Do not visit Dr. Vancura! I have to pay over 3k for a medical service and he didn't do anything to help. After my procedure, he came into the room for 2 minutes and left. He is NEVER available to speak with his patients which is extremely frustrating. Also, I knew that I had a particular medical condition but he wouldn't give me the appropriate medicine. I went to another doctor who gave me the medicine I requested and I feel so much better. Please save your money and go to another physician!!!
