I was referred to Dr. Vasdekas by my primary care physician for colon resection surgery. Dr. Vasdekas performed an excellent procedure and my recovery was relatively fast. Related treatments caused discomfort and a different doctor recommended surgery. Dr. Vasdekas' judgement was that surgery wasn't needed so I was able to avoid an unneeded surgery. Dr. Vasdekas has taken time to explain procedures to my family and me. I highly recommend Dr. Vasdekas.

Dr Vasdekas performed my colostomy reversal surgery. I couldn’t be more pleased with the surgery results as well as his bedside manner. He sat down and reviewed the procedure with me and answered the questions I had. He also addressed my fears and concerns with such a caring manner. My recovery has been so much smoother than what I anticipated due to his skill and expertise. Needless to say, I highly recommend Dr Vasdekas.

Dr. Vasdekas was amazing and I highly recommend. We had seen a surgeon prior who said Alex had 3 hernias, after meeting with Vasdekas he was able to see that there was only 1. He did the surgery and was very patient with explaining to me how to do the after care and I was able to call him with any questions

I highly recommend Dr Vasdekas. My experience was as good as it gets. I am writing this review less than 24 hours after my surgery. I had very little pain, I needed no other pain medication when I got home. I had inguinal hernia. I am happy to have friends that have recommended Dr Vasdekas.

Dr Vasdekas performed double hernia surgery at Silver Cross Hospital as an outpatient in October 2018. He and his team were excellent and the surgery went very well. I highly recommend him.

I found Dr. Vasdekas to be a compassionate and good natured man who is superb at what he does. I could not be happier with his work in the OR and the follow-up experience at his office. His office is very well run and the team who work there are a very nice group of people as well. This was the first surgery of my life (I am 66 years old). I went to Dr. Vasdekas on the recommendation of my personal physician and feel blessed that I took his advice. I could not be more pleased.

This person so scarred my mother's breast and then later totally botched my brother in law's thiroid surgery that he finally died in agony . RUN as far away from this 'dr' as you can.
