I saw Dr. Vitanzo multiple times and was not happy. Each time, he did not do a physical evaluation. I was rushed and his communication skills were very poor. I was also misdiagnosed and went to physical therapy for no reason. Penn Sports Medicine identified and corrected my injury.

Awful experience, I think the only time he looked at me was when I shook his hand. Said he'd be right back, I waited to ask questions, and he just went on to the next patient. Not very friendly either.

My wife and sister also see him.
