I've seen Dr. Vanek for three different issues and been through two surgeries with him. Dr. Vanek found my knee issue when several other Doctors had given up. Thanks to Dr. Vanek I have been without pain for over a year... His staff has always been friendly and helpful, and I've found Dr. Vanek to be very caring and always looking for the best course of action that was necessary even if it were an answer I didn't want to hear...turns out he was right in the end. Thanks Dr. Vanek!!!

DID AN EXCELLENT JOB ON MY KNEE. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

I've known Vanek for years. I went in to see him for a doctor's note to clear me for the military. I had ACL surgery 6 years earlier by a surgeon at UCSF. After waiting for 3.5 hours, he came in and didn't even examine or touch my knee, but said he'd write the letter. He then called me a week later and said my knee would fail, however he made this assumption without even running any tests on my knee or any evidence. He's just a weird guy and very unprofessional. He's a compulsive liar as well.
in Mariposa, CA |
Dr. Vanek and most of the staff is rude, and uncaring of medical needs. He tried to force a total knee replacement for my husband and then cancelled the surgery twice. When we requested answers Dr. Vanek got on the phone with me, and started to yell and say disrespectful things. We filed a complaint with our insurance, and he lied in his response. If you ask questions, then the will turn on you. Don't go here!!

Dr. Vanek adopted me from the clinic environment, he thought he would be best serve my medical situation in his private office. I have Osteoarthritis all over. Took time to see what he could do, if not refer to someone who can. He is friendly, funny, however, straight to the point, serious about his treatments and options. His staff is very nice!
Dr Vanek is a very rude and ignorant person who forces his patients to go to a lousy rehab place or else sign an Against Medical Advice paper after knee replacement surgery, upon discharge from the hospital. He maintains poor communication with his patients and does not easily prescribe any medical supplies after surgery. He says something and does something, full of lies. ONE of the Most Ridiculous doctors I have ever seen. NEVER EVER go to Dr Vanek.

Dr vanek and his staff are fabulous! After a life altering injury years ago, I came to Dr vanek office to seek help with this preexisting injury and they have not only been helpful and nurturing, but have taught me a lot about my affected body part.
