Dr. Vanessa Fazio-Sumrok was very helpful and answered all of the questions we had. I appreciate her attentiveness.
Excellent Dr! She is very understanding, listens to you and takes so much time with you. She really tries her best to help! Thank you Dr!
very nice Dr. and is doing good at helping my daughter out
She is as good as they get. She really takes her time and willing to do what needs to be done.
very clear and concise information. I did not feel rushed and I was very comfortable
Dr. Fazio is excellent. Understood all of our concerns and listen to us.
this Dr was amazing - she took the time to listen and evaluate and gave the time needed to develop a plan for therapy
We were actually late for our appt, and the staff was absolutely wonderful and let us slide in the Dr.'s very booked schedule. it was so very much appreciated!
This was by far the most pleasant Doctor's office experience I've ever encountered. From making the appointment on the phone, to the office staff checking in, to both Doctors we saw.
She was excellent.
great doctor feel better after talking about my conditions with her. very personable and compassionate to your condition and needs
She was extremely responsive in answering questions I had after the appointment and she referred us to a specialist to continue the correct care for my child.
Appointment went very well.
I was extremely pleased with the care my child received. They took ample amount of time to examine and come up with a plan for treatment. All papers I needed for the school were handed to me without me even asking.
doctor had excellent knowledge and explained everything in great detail.
Was worked into the schedule for an early Saturday am visit due to a hockey related head contact. The staff did a great job working us in and providing significant information related to concussion symptoms and treatment.
Dr. Fazio was excellent and a big help. We never had impact testing before visiting her and this is probably my daughter's second concussion! Please make sure all UPMC and Children's ERs know to do concussion testing, to prevent missing this!
Dr. Vanessa Fazio-Sumrok and her assistant who cared for my son were amazing!
Dr. Fazio listened to my son. she helped me when making an appointment at the therapist by explaining her thoughts on his condition. Further, she made herself available to assess him/clear him in time to play his weekly football game. my son even said that he felt Dr. Fazio was excellent.
The wait time to see the doctor was very short. The doctor spent a lot of time with us and was very knowledgeable. She answered every question and concern with great detail. She is a great asset to your company. We look forward to seeing her in the future.
Dr. Fazio-Sumrok took a lot of time with us during the appointment to thoroughly evaluate my son and to explain everything to us. She made things easy to understand and was very considerate of our concerns during the appointment.
