Ratings for Dr. Anthony P. Vastola
I had a great experience. Took my 7 year old son for ear infections he talked with us and was very funny and playful . Did the exam and talked to me about what may be wrong . The wait wasn't long and the lady at the desk was very nice . Would go back again if need be
Obnoxious, condescending, rude!My daughter & I brought my 5yr old grandson in 4 nosebleeds.My grandson was anxious about the exam since he once was cauterized.Vastola comes in barely looks at us&proceeds 2 ask questions.My grandson says 2 him,"Please don't put any cotton in my nose as he cried."Vastola responds evasively w/o making eye contact,"We'll just have 2 see after I assess."As we began to explain our concerns he remarks,"I see the apple doesn't fall far from the tree."He is an awful man.

The previous poster must have been having a bad day. Dr. Vastola was wonderful with my 12 week old son. His staff was pleasant in both the SI and Brooklyn locations. The doc may be a little awkward, but that should not be held against him. The SI location was clean and bright. No toys, but that is not a bad thing concidering the germs kids carry. The Brooklyn waiting room Is extremely crowded, but we were taken closer to our appt time there than SI. I am very pleased with Dr. Vastola. Other reviews made me skeptical, but he was great.

Dr. Vasatola is a pediatric doctor with the worst bedside manner. He was so nasty as well as his secretary Diane Gonzalez. His office is the worst I have ever seen. Totally not kid friendly. No books, magazine, toys or even pictures on the walls to look at. It is like being in a cardboard box. So gloomy just as his personality. His office is located in the basement and it smelt real bad. The only thing the children could play with would be the dirt that is on his chairs. When I went we wouldn't even sit on them. This Staten Island location was the worst I have ever seen. Would definetely advise people not to waste their time with Dr. Vastola. Go somewhere else and stay far away from him! He is a definite quack!!!!!!
