Patient Reviews
May 19, 2024
I was referred by a friend to Rothman in 2015 for a second opinion due to my Work Comp surgeon telling me no surgery. I researched Rothman and chose Dr. Vaccaro. Dr. Vaccaro took the time to explain my sciatic nerve was 60% pinched off. He performed a discectomy and I fully returned to work within several months, thanks to him and his staff! He is definitely a master of what he does and he is very personable! I am very grateful!
