    How was your appointment with Dr. Vanko?

    Nov 29, 2021
    I was a drug rep for Dr Vankos office for almost 4 years. The one thing I will say is that you can often tell a lot about a Doctor based on how they treat their staff and drug reps. Dr Vanko is kind and compassionate and always gives her reps and patients plenty of time. I have always been impressed with how she wants to stay on top of the latest and greatest treatment options out there, she is extremely knowledgeable. She attends so many different speaker programs and reads up on the latest treatment options in medical journals on a regular basis. She’s a wealth of knowledge! I highly recommend her!
