Horrible! Put my young son on PPI for 7 years without any follow up or even proper explanation. He was dismissive and unpleasant, as if he was annoying him when asked questions. My son now suffers from chronic and serious issues as a result. This is a dangerous and irresponsible doctor.

Experience at Dartmouth Hitchcock was far far superior. Not a patient...Read More

This is a doctor solely in it for the vacation days, as his orange hue and conduct illustrate perfectly. Lets hope you don't have anything that isn't strictly by the books, or Vecchio will sweep you under the rug and ignore anything about your condition which is too confusing or would require the...Read More
