This content was provided by Dr. Vanko "I have been honored to take care of thousands of the region's families and serving as Ob Gyn, gyn surgeon, and most importantly, primary care physician. I entered medicine after spending 10 years as a high school teacher. Doctor means teacher in Latin. I serve as teacher and a collaborative partner in any health issue.You will find that I give you an honest assessment of your health care issue, many options or roads to consider, and let you decide. Knowing that many people have high dollar deductible health plans, I find medical management often is the best option. We offer most outpatient procedures in the office, most comfortably under local anesthesia,blocks, or a combination including narcotics . I serve as a clinical preceptor for Indiana University Medical School. It is important to think as a primary care physician first and specialist second. More importantly, I wish convey to medical students that what makes OB GYN special is that we see the patients and their families throughout their lives. So whether you need an HPV vaccine or contraceptive for your teen daughter or a continence procedure or pessary for an elderly relative, it is the connection to you that keeps the care special. Besides, I enjoy those Christmas cards with family pictures of all of you. Thanks. Mary Vanko MD"

My patients thank me in person every day and they thank me the most by sending in their families, girlfriends and neighbors. It would me nice if they would go online but most don't. I see thousands of satisfied patients yearly, many of whom have followed me through transitions when I've worked for other physicians over the last 25 years.
I am always interested in improving your experience and consider criticism
