Brunswick, OH |
I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS PHYSICIAN TO MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS!!! Dr. Vaitkus is significantly detailed, caring, thorough and professional!!! Dr. Vaitkus did not cure my respiratory ailments, but rather helped me to better manage my condition w/the needed medications and products to tremendously improve my respiratory condition!!! Dr. Vaitkus is definitely on top of things, very "state of the art knowledgeable" and helpful in my experiences and in my estimation, BEST pulmonologist in Ohio
in Brunswick, OH |
Both times I've seen Dr. Vaitkus, I've waited between one and two hours beyond my scheduled appointment time before being seen. He is a good doctor, but he's a long-talker, which sets all the appointments back. It's hard to take that much time out of your schedule during a work day.
Cleveland, OH |
Dr. Vaitkus was the only physician who could solve my respiratory problems after seeing four other doctors. He is a wonderful doctor, very kind and he sat down and really listened to my issues. I not longer have any bronchial problems when the wonderful Cleveland weather changes..... I can't thank him enough!!!!
