Dr. Vacirca makes you seem like he's your best friend, he'd do anything for you... Unfortunately, if an emergency situation arises, he will not be there. His associates are afraid to contact him. Please, find another doctor. I've now been a widow for 11 months - Dr. Vacirca told us this was an "easy" cancer - It's not 1970 anymore. We had no doubts that my husband would be fine.... He dropped the ball and my husband paid with his life...

From the moment I meant with Dr. Vacirca I knew I was in good hands. He is incredibly sharp, knowledgeable, and caring. In addition, his staff was always there to guide me through every step - I never felt lost or confused - I always felt supported.

He spent too many of my appts on his cell phone. I would say this is the last time I am coming in and he would sit down and listen. Just not consistently. I like his mannerisms when he listens. He explains issues well when he takes the time. My very first appt was in the hospital after being admitted thru emergency and he never showed up. Billed my insurance and then yelled at me when I called for a follow up saying he wasn't accepting new patients. Huh.
