      Dr. Vigna and Dustin is a vary professional, staff is vary Pleasant to speak with. Vigna's bed side Manor along with Dustin's bed side Manor is out of this world. tells you exactly what needs to be fixed, gets to the root of the problem. Wait time is a bit long but wouldn't you want him to spend that much time with you he will. First time appointment has a bit wait time but if you want to see the best you need to wait.

      I love Dr Vigna. I went to him back when he was with Dr Cappacino, and stayed with him. He fought for me with comp and when he finally got to do my operation 6 years later it relieved my pain. My husband had him do his surgery and he is back to work. The office staff is wonderful. Not much waiting. Emergencies do happen, but mostly you have a short wait. I would recommend him to anyone.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
