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.

Dr. Vawter has kept me symptom-free for over 10 years with my RA. I look forward to my visits with him, and don't understand the negative reviews at all! Yes, he is to-the-point, brusque at times, but he is always punctual, very knowledgeable, and did I mention I'm symptom-free????

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
