Ratings for Dr. John V. Vecchione
Just Love these people who work here in the Budd Lake office... I walked in there so nervous, but when walking out... I felt great do to the help Dr. Vecchione staff has comfort me. I would go back in a heart beat. Love the doctors personality! We need more doctors like him! :o)
It is HIGHLY advised that you either be somewhat educated on oral surgery or you actually read/watch the entire news stories when they clearly state that nothing has even been linked. I just think it is a witch hunt and most of those who attend an oral surgeon regularly would be absolutely horrified if you really knew to what standards other places are. Everyone walks around blind until given a reason to all of the sudden jump on a band-wagon.
This doesnt just happen how about some research is done before we judge what we don't know. I'm sure that the people that so called developed this would be very upset if perhaps they were being told maybe they were IV drug users and this is why this happened. If your heart is healthy, you're unlikely to develop endocarditis. The germs that cause infection tend to stick to and multiply in damaged or surgically implanted heart valves. Those at highest risk of endocarditis are those who have: Artificial heart valves. Germs are more likely to attach to an artificial (prosthetic) heart valve than to a normal heart valve. Congenital heart defects. If you were born with certain types of heart defects, your heart may be more susceptible to infection. A history of endocarditis. An episode of endocarditis damages heart tissue and valves, increasing the risk of a future heart infection. Damaged heart valves. Certain medical conditions — such as rheumatic fever or infection — can damage or scar one or more of your heart valves, making them more prone to endocarditis. History of intravenous (IV) illegal drug use. People who use illegal drugs by injecting them are at a greater risk of endocarditis. The needles used to inject drugs can be contaminated with the bacteria that can cause endocarditis. If you have a known heart defect or heart valve problem, ask your doctor about your risk of developing endocarditis. Even if your heart condition has been repaired or hasn't caused symptoms, you may be at risk.
Dr. John V. Vecchione -- WHAT A GREAT DOCTOR !!!!!!!!!!!!! **NOT** POTENTIALLY, THE ONLY PEOPLE HAPPY WITH HIS WORK ARE THE UNDERTAKERS. (READ THE NEWSPAPER ABOUT THE WAY HE HAS BEEN INFECTING HIS PATIENTS AND THEIR HEARTS) The staff seems very nasty / The "Doctor" seems uncaring / They Just seem concerned about the Profit $$ Factor / Read The Reviews / WHY IS THIS GUY ALLOWED TO PRACTICE AFTER INFECTING 15 PATIENTS WITH DEADLY BACTERIA (ACCORDING THE THE NEWSPAPER, I DIED !). IMAGINE HOW SAD IT IS TO HAVE GONE TO A "PROFESSIONAL" TO HAVE DENTAL WORK DONE, GET TREATED LIKE CRAP --- THEN.... END UP ON AN OPERATING TABLE HAVING OPEN HEART SURGERY TO CLEAN UP THE INFECTIOUS DISEASES-BACTERIA (THE KIND THAT KILLS THE HEART ACCORDING TO THE PAPER), HE INFECTED YOU WITH????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS IS NUTS. WHY DOES NJ STILL ALLOW HIM TO PRACTICE ???? IT'S NOT LIKE THIS IS ARKANSAS OR SOME DEMONCRAT PLACE WHERE YOU DON'T NEED TEETH.. MY FOLKS TOLD ME THAT A KID OR SOMEONE **DIED** BECAUSE OF THE BACTERIA HE GAVE TO THEM. ! THANKFULLY, I AM STILL YOUNG ENOUGH TO NOT HAVE ME ANY KIND OF DENTAL WORK OTHER THAN THE SEALANTS I GOT A FEW YEARS AGO AND THE ONE FILLING I HAD TO HAVE FOR A CAVITY LAST YEAR. THIS TEACHES YOU TO RESEARCH RESEARCH RESEARCH --- *BEFORE* CHOOSING A DOCTOR OR DENTIST. !!!!!!!!!!!!
I brought my son in to have his wisdom teeth removed. The receptionist demanded I pay in full for my portion of the bill, or I could reschedule for another time, when I was prepared to pay for it. They told me they had already calculated the portion not covered by insurance! They were anything but friendly! One week after his proceedure, I started getting calls from the Dr. office regarding an additional $108 that was not covered by my insurance. They hounded us at our work numbers and left messages on the home phone daily, until they received that additional money. Not a good experience! The best part was when the Dr. spoke with me after the surgery was completed. He told me "He had to feed his family", and that was his excuse for demanding the money on the spot. Wow! Find another Dr.
Dr.Vecchione did a great job removing my daughters 4 wisdom teeth....she was given something to help with the swelling...she said it burned a little but was well worth it.. Her face was not swollen at all & she had minimal pain.. He is very personable & so was the staff...Not to mention his bill was $150.00 less than the previous oral surgeon I went to with the same insurance. I will definitely take my other daughter there for the same procedure... Thanks for the hassle free experience...
