On this Thanksgiving I have to thank this man for a second chance at life. 5 years ago when all felt like things were not going to work out, Dr Vesco ensured that he could fix the problem and he did. It's people like him who care so deeply about their respective fields that truly make progress in this world. Thanks for everything. Nick

My experience with Dr. Vesco was the best anyone could have. He is compassionate, kind, caring and demands his patients be treated the best they can while in the hospital. He always has time to stop and talk, reassure and share any news he has concerning your health. He has an awesome side of him that can make you laugh, yet take time to listen when you cry. He gave me hope for the future. He is a gentle giant whom I love and admire very much. I would recommend him to anyone.
