Dr Vaccarella has been my Dr for many years. In my book he the best. I always feel like I am in good hands. He is thorough, he always is willing to listen and very caring. Because of him, his staff and Dr Carmen I am blessed to be a Cancer Survivor.I will be forever greatfull.

AS a Family Practitioner I find him very thorough and friendly. He takes the time to explain conditions and will attempts to squeeze you in without a regular appointment. I've never had to wait more than 30 mins (1X) with the norm being 10 - 15. Would recommend him.

I waited an hour in his office to be seen today. When i displayed my frustration for waiting, he advised me there were other patients ahead of me. I understand that however; he was chatting with his staff about the pending snow for 20 minutes! He was rude and made my appt as quick as possible while engaging more with his other patients. I will not return and taking my family to another physician. I have never felt so belittled by a doctor in my life.
