Ratings for Dr. Irene Vanek
She is very smart and diagnosed me with a condition no other doctor has seen before. But she is very dramatic about every situation, even when there is no need to be. She will find the negative in every situation. Her knowledge is very valuable but she has horrible bed side manners, do not expect an empathetic doctor when going to see her.
First appointment I was told to arrive at 2, wasn't seen until 6:30. After my 2nd appointment they were going to schedule more tests. That was almost a year ago and I have not been able to get in contact with them since. They do not answer the phone, the messaging machine is full and no other department seems to be able to help me get a hold of her. She is very knowledgeable and helpful, but the lack of communication is unacceptable.

Words cannot begin to express my gratitude and admiration for Dr. Vanek. Her swift, professional diagnosis of my condition and the need for emergency surgery saved my eyesight. She is a brilliant, compassionate doctor. Her rapid intervention on my behalf, prevented me from going blind!
Dr. Vanek treated me with kindness and respect, saw the urgency in my diagnosis and treatment and personally handled time-sensitive referrals when my own family doctor fell far behind. She gave me good advice, put my mind at ease, took time to connect with me on a personal level and explained the tests and results in ways in which I could understand. She is a fantastic doctor and I count myself very lucky to have her on my team!
I suffer from severe facial neuropathic pain. I met Dr. Vanek yesterday for the first time. Five minutes into my appointment she got up and asked if she could give me a hug. She let me cry in her arms, openly sobbing. Thankfully, after a thorough examination, my optic nerve is not damaged. I will never see her again as my eyes are healthy (just severe pain) but I'll never forget her. She is simply wonderful.
