Verified Patient Reviews
Very pleasant visit . Great doc !!
Great doctor, very helpful, compassionate
Excellent doctor! Great bedside manner. He listened to every thing I spoke about, and had great advice.
Very professional & very knowledgable. Encouraged questions and explained things thoroughly.
Very friendly doctor and helpful staff
Great doctor. Answered all my questions about my trip and gave me the right vaccines and medications needed. Quick and easy appointment.
As long as you get in a few minutes before you're apppointment, wait time is not too long. A lot of patients seem to come in around the same time, I've learned now to get in 10 minutes earlier and usually end up waiting less than 30 minutes to see the doc. Doc is pretty straightforward, I live closeby so it's just really convenient to come here.
I make an appointment for my dad 80 years old man veri sick and after the appointment was confirmed the same day for the appointment I call to let doctor I will bring ,y dad from Rockaway to his office and make sure everything was ok Dr secretary told me the his insurance was not accepted by this doctor. Really very unprofessional and unconsidered with elder people. Don't recomended this office to no body they don't which insurance they accepted.
Very kind, competent physician. Took time to explain everything to me.
Dr Vasa was very professional and accommodating I would highly recommend him!
I thought Dr. Vasa and his staff was professional and friendly. Dr. Vasa himself seem to be knowledgeable in my particular medical needs he was informative and inviting. I also like the fact that he’s affiliated with a local hospital in case I maybe hospitalize, I’ll have my personal doctor checking on me. I would recommend Dr. Vasa to a friend and family member.
Very nice Dr. Concern about my health .This is a Great Dr Who listens to your health problems. Good advise and cares a lot for his patients.Thank you so much Dr.Chirag . I really recommend this Dr and office to anyone looking for better health ??????????????
I visited Dr. Vasa on one occasion when my other Doctor was unavailable. The experience was generally positive. However, his fee was more than double that of my normal doctor. I probably won't go back for this reason.
Very knowledgeable....able to administer fewer vaccines than I needed because he read the report thoroughly. I thought I would need more vaccines but he read the report carefully enough to see that I was immune to most of the vaccines that I thought I needed. He did a great job. He also saw that my blood pressure was pretty high and that I needed to re visit my primary care physician, which I plan to do within the next few weeks.
What a nice Dr professing and his bed side manner was 2 kind
This was my first visit with Dr. Vasa. I waited about 30 min - about par for most Dr.s in my experience. I chose him for his infectious disease credentials. He listened to me attentively and asked follow up questions. I will get tests done and go for a follow up in 2 weeks. I cannot really give an overall recommendation until I see what kind of follow up care/treatment he prescribes.
Dr. Vasa was very friendly and professional. He took his time and listened patiently to all my concerns and asked many questions about my symptoms. He gave me a call on the weekend just to let me know a first diagnosis and make me feel less worried. Great doctor!
He made me pretty comfortable and he had a sense of humor. He was professional and very friendly.
Dr. Vasa was very kind, knowledgeable, and concerned.
Got to my first appointment early, and saved myself time filling out paperwork thanks to ZocDoc. I was super anxious to begin with, but Dr. Vasa was very helpful and incredibly informative and did not rush me at all. He answered all my questions and made me feel really comfortable that he is now my doctor. Got a flu shot and blood drawn which I didn't even notice, I'm pretty confident I won't be so nervous when I'm back in a few weeks.
Really nice doctor- he explained all the shots I needed for my trip to Thailand and gave me some good tips about how to stay safe and healthy while I was there.
He truly cares to properly go over everything with you. You are treated with respect and dignity. I don't stay close but he made me feel very welcome. Very professional and wants to help you live a happy and healthy life no matter your illness. Very impressed!
Excellent Doctor! Very thorough, caring, great follow up. Highly recommend!
He didn't even examine me! !? Said he can't help me ?! and charge the consultation anyways!
Dr. Vasa was very professional and had a wonderful bedside manner. He seemed very knowledgeable and reassuring.
Very professional and helpful. I am very pleased with my visit and for sure would recommend dr vasa to my family and friends.
Everything was great except the hour wait time. Took his time explaining shots needed and recommended other shots. Also gave tips in preparation for our African safari trip. Easy parking in Woodhaven NY. If only the office didn't overbook patients, it would have been excellent.
Very helpful and knowledgable
He was so nice and helpful. I'm traveling to Africa for the first time and he took a lot of time to tell me about each vaccine and what to expect. He had even been to Kenya recently and talked about his trip. Really great first-time experience with Dr. Vasa.
I have been dealing with a issue for a couple months both painful and frustrating. I have also been to other doctors for my issue and Dr.Vasa for the first time made me feel like I will not have to deal with this forever. He explained things to me as well as stopped to listen to my concern and questions. He has now gained a permanent patient.
Awesome very Good that's y he's my Primary Care DOCTOR
He was good so far but my medical info that I fill out on your website for him didn't go thru. They never received it.
Dr. Vasa is a caring and knowledgable doctor. He's affable and takes the time to answer all questions without rushing you out of his office. I highly recommend him.
I had a great experience with Dr. Vasa. He was very professional and took the time to ask me and listen to what I came in for. I would definitely come back again.
Dr. Vasa was Friendly, knowledgeable and most importantly made me feel comfortable.
It was great he was kind understanding and helpful...I left his office feeling very hopeful about everything......
It was my first visit so it's hard to say much, but the doctor was very kind and patient and his staff was lovely. I will be going back.
Great setting & very personable & knowledgable doc!
Fast service and the doctor itself is a friendly guy
Would return , and recommend dr . Vasa.
I was in the office,I waited about 15 minutes and then I went in to see him .he asked me lots of question that was not relevant to my app, he checked my load pressure and my heart and told me ,that I am fine.i went for a complete physical , did not get blood work ,or a complete physical , I went to him because of the reviews but I will not recommend this dr or eve go back to him . Horrible experiences
Dr. Vasa made me feel comfortable and had a great personality. He was extremely knowledgable and reassuring. I would recommend him 100%, just be aware he takes his time with each paitent, so there is a little bit of wait past your appointment time.
He is good. Examines you thoroughly and has a great personality.
Horrible! Did not even take my blood or check my blood pressure even though i told him this was the first time i'd been to the doctor in years!
The doc was pleasant and helpful but the wait was a bit long
Very friendly and open to conversation! I don't often look forward to doctors visits but I look forward to seeing Dr. Vasa again!
I like Dr. Vasa. He is a good doctor and a caring person. I felt comfortable in his care. I wan not 100% happy about having such a long wait to see him though.
He was knowledgeable and considerate
Very informative, willing to answer questions and friendly. Would go back.
