Philosophy Of Care

I believe it is important to spend time listening to patients and getting to know them as a person. That helps me to not only diagnose and treat their current problems, but also to anticipate and prevent future health issues. Long term doctor-patient relationships are the foundation of primary care.

Good visit, left feeling confident about my health
No Rating Given
Dr. Has been very rushed, the last two times I have seen her. She seems agitated. She does not listen to the patient. Her use of words are rash, and she had a bad bedside manner. She talked very fast and seemed as if she was on a fifteen minute deadline to get out of the room. I had high blood pressure going in and this didn't help my health at all. This experience has stayed with me. Is she overworked? I don't know. But. She was NOT this way previously. I have seen Dr. Vetrone a lot before. She was very personable and had a good bedside manner.

Very compassionate.

I am very happy with Dr. Vatrone. My previous Dr. at Elmhurst was not attentive to my concerns. I felt like I was am imposition to her, which is the reason I changed doctors. I feel blessed to have Dr. Vatrone as my care provider.
No Rating Given

No Rating Given
Dr. Vetrone is a good listener and always tries to give advice regarding the health issues I bring up to her.
No Rating Given
Was disturbing that Dr Vetrone was not familiar with my health situation - she asked me why I was taking certain medications that she, in fact, had prescribed.
No Rating Given
The telemedicine visit went well, but seems unsuited for a follow up visit concerned with high blood pressure. I understand the current COVID situation makes telemedicine visits necessary, but not ideal.

Dr Vetrone always explains things very well. she is patient in answering my questions . I do not feel rushed.

the day before the nurse explained exactly what would happen and what I had to do to connect. she was patient in her explanation and the call went without a glitch.
