Excellent specialist. Took me from a horrible situation (onset of RA) to a place where my quality of life is as good as normal. Does not always tell you what you want to hear, but cares about his patients and his work.

I have been seeing Dr. Vawter for over 30+ years. I have never, ever had a bad experience while seeing him. I feel the patients didn't give him a chance to work with them that gave him such bad ratings. Dr. Vawter, Dr. Kettler and Dr. Latos have saved my life more than once!!! I thank God for...Read More
