Ratings for Dr. Frederic Vagnini
I want to thank you all for your honest reviews. You have saved me time and money. There is nothing worse than an arrogant doctor that doesn't have the patients best interest in mind above all. I almost made an appointment but thankfully I came here first.
This Doctor is horrible ...very unprofessional ...I purchased vitamins ..the dr was aware of others medication that I was on....he said that the vitamins would be fine to take and not to worry about any sort of interaction....well I broke out in a rash my blood sugar went sky high....and he would not even see me....he was just a nightmare..don't go
This Doctor is terrible , unprofessional has had his liscense suspended, has relatives working for him that are intimidated by him and push vitamins quoting "clinical trials" when questioned they know nothing about. He is an old man in his 70's who conducts a patient consultation while he lifts weights talking about the 20 year old super models he dates and his recent facelift !!!!!!! He is a disgrace. I feel sorry for his family and children, they must be horrified by him.He really needs to be put out to pasture in an old age home. He is delusional and unprofessional. An old man like this who is so narcisssistic has some deep seated emotional problems. HE IS A DANGER TO THE COMMUNITY AND PROBABLY TO HIMSELF. Check out his facebook page ..he has photo's of himself with young women constantly ...and I am sure they are ALL professionals of a differnt kind.
Little bit of a wait but excellent experience the Doctor. I like all the tests its very thorough. As for the comments on the doctor.. Well I went to see a doctor not make a friend so Idon't know how to comment on their experiences. Supplements are optional and they do have a few discount programs and shipped to me when I was away.
Let's forget his horrible bedside manner and that he is extremely arrogant, Dr Vagnini is wreckless. I recently found out I had thyroid cancer. I went to Dr Vagnini a year before and he did a sonogram of my thyroid. He failed to mention that the ultrasound technician found a large tumor in my thyroid. While we met to go over my results, I guess he was too busy with the nurses that walked in and out to read that part of the findings. I only found this out because a year later I asked to have all his results faxed to me. Luckily the cancer hadn't spread to my lymph nodes. Please do not trust this man. He is more worried about selling you his expensive vitamins than with what is actually wrong with you.
Dr V is very knowledgable in his field but, I must agree with everyone here. Hes very arrogant as well as money driven I to was shuttled off to his over priced Vitamin store, not to mentioned the expensive 10 page blood work he ordered even my other DR questioned the need for such a extensive test but my HMO paid it what do i care. In order to get him to listen or notice you in a conversation you kind of have to bark at him sorry to say as far as compassion for patients he has zero the only extra attention youll get from him is if your putting more money in his pocket.He kinda reminds me of Larry King but in great shape this DR. holds so many hats where does he find the time, Talk shows, Radio, Vitamin Comp,Author of many books 2 private practices the list goes on.. one could only wish to be that active at his age but needless to say after 3 years Im moving on to a different DR. hopfully one who at least acts like they are concerned instead of operating a revolving door practice.
in my consult, Dr V. took a phone call from another dr. about a hospitalized patient (emergency?) but then made another call. I pushed to get answers about my tests & was told to see the nutritionist at added fee--which I did not feel was needed. Next visit, I actually timed when dr v went into each exam room---average 5 to 10 min. per patient. He's brillent, but isn't that a bit too speedy? I noted that select people got lots of attention & time--obvious difference. I purchased lots of his suppliments but I still did not "rate". He is always bemoaning his "lack of ladyfriends" then follows with a brag of dating a supermodel. He is excellent if you are a "chosen" one (doctor, relative, friend) & does seem money obcessed. Potentially a fantastsic doctor --but did not show the patient caring that he shows on his radio program. Maybe he is doing just too many things at the same time to give sufficient attention to each one.
Dr. Vagnini is knowledgable, but I agree with other reviews that he doesn't like to be questioned so much, so what's the use? He does go overboard with blood testing and only likes you if you buy his vitamins, etc. Too bad. His receptionist was very rude and nasty to me besides not forwarding messages, etc. Don't know how a doc with his fame could employ a person like that - she represents the office and him so that says a lot.
