We love Dr. Vaislieb, and her other staff Robin Neft and Bailey. They are always so helpful, knowledgeable, and honest about what is going on with our daughter.
always pleasant, really listened to my concerns
Her doctor is excellent!
Both myself and my husband are completely satisfied with Dr Vaisleib care.
terrible bedside manner. very cold.
It can be hard to get an appointment with her. Other than that, every experience has been wonderful. She is experienced and educated in her specialty. She really tries the best she can to not only treat, but to also find out why. I feel she actually cares about her patients instead of rushing you out of the door which is hard to find. I trust her with my daughters care and treatment. Bailey is also wonderful.
We love Dr. Vaislieb! She and her nurse practitioner are always helpful, informative, have a good manner when interacting with patients, and they're direct, even when information isn't what you want to hear.
We've never really had a bad experience.
Dr. Vasleib was very knowledgable and concerned for my child during the visit. She spoke to us about serious medical options for our child's care and included him in the discussion. We felt our concerns were validated by her and she worked to come to a solution that we were happy with. We are moving in a new direction with our sons care and we feel she is leading us thoughtfully and carefully in the right direction; yet without overstepping boundaries. She is very professional and we did not feel rushed through our visit.
There was literally no wait - we were seen by the doctor and leaving the office before our scheduled appointment time. The doctor was very thorough and provided good explanations of prescribed medications and recommended testing.
Dr. Vailseib was very curtious and concerned about my daughter.
Prompt, responsive, professional, helped with a new perspective in the department for our child. We were not upset with our previous provider, just wanted an epileptologist to see our son as his condition is evolving.
Everyone from the intake person to the doctor was very professional and courteous.
