I just had an appointment with Dr. Vaccaro this morning and can’t praise him and his staff enough!! He is kind, thorough, spent time with me and listened. He even answered a few questions from my daughter who was with me! The staff is marvelous too! Recommend him highly. For the very few who left negative comments I cannot imagine what you are talking about!!!!

Doctor is great but his front desk girl in the Clifton building is terribly rude. I would not return because of her.

Dr. Vaccaro was a consultant when my 82 y.o. father was admitted to the hospital with an acute altered mental status. He was not able to make a definitive diagnosis, based on the initial tests, he was respectful and open to feed back.

Lacks bedside manner. After my MRI without contrast, Dr. Vaccaro called me on my phone to deliver news of me having an acoustic neuroma. If he talked with me in his office with the paperwork I would have seen the radiologist note that it was only possible. It was a very stressful time. I believe all doctors should talk in person about anything that is not normal. I am trying to take this as a positive experience and be thankful I did not have an acoustic neuroma after having my contrast MRI.
