Ratings for Dr. Jeffrey L. Vacirca
So disappointed in him as a doctor He comes in to tell you the bad news, puts a plan into effect and then you never see him again. I see his nurse practioner which my opinion is bad form. Most cancer patients have a relationship with their oncologist, I did not. I am breast cancer survived 2 times and I think your doctor should be there for you to answer question return a phone call, explain all the possibilities of side effect, he did not.
He's personable, knowledgeable,reassuring and has a great personality. He does not take calls - ever! He does not do hospital rounds even on his scheduled day. When he leaves the room, you had better hope you don't need to ask any more questions, he will not return. He will do everything and anything to be certain you get whatever test/meds you need. Just keep in mind that he disappears when a patient is nearing their end. You will have to rely on other rounding doctors for advice and information. Office staff is extremely helpful in resolving issues and the medical staff is very caring. I would recommend Dr. Vacirca.
Terrible experience, would not recommend him to anyone. Awful experience, promised support and never delivered. Said he would be right back in to room and left office not to return, never goes to hospital, seen by other covering doctors who have no idea of the history. Office staff was rude and very inconsidrate, rarely returned calls and information received was regularly incorrect. He thinks alot of himself and let's you know but when crunch time comes he is unavailable. if you need to use this office use someone else.
Dr. Vacirca was available and returned phone calls until my sister was near death. We were told by interns and residents at the hospital that there was nothing else to that could be done. Dr. Vacirca was unavailable and did not return phone calls to confirm this information. Our family was left in the dark. We had heard from other families that he was great til the end, then he disappears. The office tells you that it is not true and those families are just unhappy with the outcome. I can tell you that we knew this was going to be fatal and we were counting on the guidance of this oncologist to let us know when to 'take her home and make her comfortable.' When the time came he was nowhere to be found. I would never recommend him to anyone.
Doctor does NOT return phone calls. You wait in the office for close to 2 hours to be told "The Dr. is speaking to another patient, do you really need to see him?" Then you are forced to make an appointment for test results that can be given on the phone because he wants to charge you another office visit fee. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND. Very disappointed.
Dr. Vacirca demonstrates knowledge, expertise and most important common sense. To experience a loved one suffer a terminal illness is one of the worst experiences in life, the only peace is in knowing you have chosen the best doctor and dr. v is that doctor.
