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 usuallyend 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 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 incase I maybe hospitalize, I’ll have my personal doctor checking on me. I would recommend Dr. Vasa to a friend and family member.

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 thatI 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.

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. Iwill 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.

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 answeredall 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.

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.

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 dealwith 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.
