I've been going to Dr. Vasko more than 2 years, and he has helped me tremendously in reducing my pain. Arthritis has affected my life daily to the point that I couldn't do much of anything without suffering. He is direct, professional, and answers any questions I may have. He's wonderful!!

Had a great experience. I've had multiple spine surgeries and have been disabled with back and leg pain, after consultation with Dr. Vasko, where he was pleasant, compassionate, and caring he recommended spinal stimulator device, during the trial I got 80% relief of my pain, I had the permanent device implanted ASAP, and am doing much better today. Highly recommend Dr. Vasko!

I originally went to Dr. Vasko for treatment of an SI joint and had success with a steroid injection. I was experiencing increased pain and wanted to schedule another shot four months later and no one would return my calls. I left 2 messages for the PA, talked to the receptionist twice - four messages in total. I was practically in tears from the pain, but it wasn't important enough to return my call apparently. I found another doctor and you should too if you want responsiveness.

For more than a year I couldn't turn my head in either direction without a great deal of pain. It made driving and playing sports next to impossible. Plus I was taking too much aspirin to relieve the pain. Dr. Vasko said the pain was coming from arthritis in my neck. He performed a medial block on both sides of my neck in early 2017. After a weeklong recovery, I've been virtually pain free.

I have been going to Dr. Vasko for about two years for epidural injections for lower back pain. I have gotten great pain relief and feel that this is what has allowed me to be able to continue working. Dr. Vasko is always very knowledgeable and has a nice personality. Dr. Vasko is a great doctor!!

This is by far the best doctor I have ever had regarding pain management of my back and leg pain. He is pleasant, knowledgeable and kind. I have had one office visit with him and two injection procedures because of pain after a back surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Vasko for serious pain management.

Great bedside manner. Listened to all my concerns, answered all my questions, I felt like he really spent a lot of time with me and my wife. After 2 years of low back pain and multiple doctors, I finally understood why I was in pain and what my outlook was. No other doctor spent that much time with me or explained as in detail as Dr. Vasko.
