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.
What a wonderful review, Marge. Thanks for sharing your experience. Quality and care is important to us and we're glad to hear you are pleased with Northwest Community Healthcare and Dr. VanCura. Take good care of yourself!

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!!!
