Dr. Vitale is an outstanding and experienced surgeon who puts the child and parents at ease. My 15-year-old son had scoliosis, and Dr. Vitale didn’t rush to surgery. He monitored my son for a year, until it was unavoidable to have surgery. He was patient (even when we weren’t), and caring. What I love about Dr. Vitale is the fact that he specializes in pediatric patients, understands their nuances, he speaks directly to them and LISTENS! They are treated as the most important person in the room, and he doesn’t discard their anxiety and feedback.
I know Dr. Vitale, from a clinical perspective, is the best at what he does. I am not a physician, but I know that spinal surgery of any kind is a delicate and complicated procedure. The care that my son received was exceptional. The protocol that Dr. Vitale and his team has in place, takes you on a journey of answering all your questions. They have taken into account the WHATS, THE WHERES and THE HOWS. All of your questions will be answered before and after the procedure. Their team is outstanding, Amber is his right-hand person, and she knows her stuff. I cannot say enough about Dr. Vitale’s surgical and nursing team. They were so attentive to my son, and when he left the hospital they armed us with everything we needed to transition to home care. They called, we called when we had questions and we were never left alone.
I strongly recommend Dr.Vitale! He is amazing or else I won’t leave such a long and detailed review. You will be in gifted hands! —Karen B.
