Dr. Vanik is awesome! I got into see him on short notice (within 1-1/2 hour from when my surgeon notified him of my needs), and spent an hour with my husband and I on his plan for immediate breast reconstruction after a nipple sparing mastectomy. Always attentive and professional!! Thanks Dr. Vanik...more
