Patient Comments (4)
in Frankfort, KY |
Dr. Vasicek explained every procedure and showed me my MRI so I could understand what was wrong and what she could do for me. I was really in pain and I needed someone to help me, she melted all my fears and took action. She checked on me often after surgery and I really felt that she understood. She really listened. Thanks to her, I am happy with my new Christmas Knee.
in Georgetown, KY |
I had a fantastic experience with Dr. Vasicek in 2006. Another physician in her practice insisted I did not have a torn rotator cuff, because it was not visible on the MRI. He grew frustrated with my continued pain and immobility and referred me to her. She felt that I did have a tear and actually found two during the surgery. She listens carefully, retains your information and keeps careful notes. I have complete confidence in her abilities.
in Versailles, KY |
Dr. V has scoped both of my knees then did a total replacement on one. Dealt with the early stages of severe shoulder joint damage and recommended the surgeon (outside her practice) who ultimately did the surgery. Extremely knowledgeable, caring, attentive. If you ever read her dictation notes you will find that she listened and retained everything you told her. I trust her implicitly and highly recommend her.
Nicholasville, KY |
She was thorough and listened to my problem.
