How likely are you to recommend Dr. Vaccaro?

(Select your rating)
Dr. Vaccaro has performed two surgeries on my back, one cervical surgery in 2017 and a lumbar spinal fusion in September 2021. Dr. Vacarro is a highly skilled surgeon. His professionalism was outstanding. He took the time to explain the procedures and was readily available to answer any questions. He provided post-surgical feedback within hours of both surgeries. His staff of physician assistant and other medical staff were consistently available to answer any questions and to provide both pre-operative and post-operative support. Although Dr. Vacarro is responsible for the operation of the entire Rothman Institute, he took a sincere personal interest in my case and well-being.
