Dr. Vlasic is a very knowledgeable and caring doctor! He believes in educating the patient and family, which I really appreciate! He speaks fast, but is always willing to repeat himself and answer any questions I have. His staff is always friendly and willing to help with prescription coupons, scheduling and anything that may come up during a visit.

Dr Vlasic has been heaven sent to my daughter, who has been struggling with a host of undiagnosed and trivial health issues. He has gone above and beyond to assist me in getting her to thr propee specialist, and on the right medications. She absolutely adores him, which says a lot coming from a child who suffers from white coat syndrome. I would recommend anyone to see him!
