Dr. Danko is an awesome doctor, so happy God sent us to Vanderbilt, my son became a success story because of her gifted hands. 2. Could not have been better. 7. She prescribed meds when needed & gave follow up for general. 8. She drew when needed as well.

We highly recommend this provider to other people. But tell them the paying part for plain people is OUT OF THIS WORLD EXPENSIVE.
