I have been a patient at CNY Family Dentistry for over 10 years, and originally became a patient because they participate in the military dental plan, United Concordia, but I stayed a patient and have referred others because of the exceptional service, friendliness, cleanliness, efficiency (I NEVER wait when I get there) and overall excellent dental care I received over the years. Even though I am no longer in the military (and therefore no longer have dental coverage), I will continue to go there, twice a year. I have had other dentists in the past that do NOT measure up to this practice, so I know what I'm talking about! Thank you, Dr. Vignogna and your wonderful staff for taking such pride in your work and for providing such a friendly, warm, inviting environment. I almost forget that I'm there to have my teeth worked on!

My family and I have been treated by Dr. Vignogna for over ten years, and find him to be very professional, courteous and competent. We also have found his staff to be professional, courteous and competent. His office has much of the latest equipment, and he is conveniently located as well. We will not consider going to anyone else, having found the best!
Tips & Advices
An osteopathic physician practices a comprehensive form of medicine that takes a holistic approach to a person's health. Instead of specializing in one system or set of organs, an osteopathic specialist focuses on the health of the total body. This includes evaluating environmental factors that affect a person's well-being.
Many family doctors deliver babies, especially in rural areas without a nearby OB/GYN. However, most family doctors only deliver for low-risk pregnancies and do not perform cesarean sections.
Family nurse practitioners are highly educated nurses able to provide medical care individually or with the assistance of another professional. Family nurse practitioners obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and then take the National Council Licensure Examination to begin working as a registered nurse. Then, they continue their education and obtain a Master of Science in Nursing. Following that, they become certified in family practice via the American Nurses Credentialing Center of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, allowing them to become certified family nurse practitioners.
Some family doctors provide immunizations while others do not. Typically, doctors who work as part of a large practice are more likely to offer vaccines in-house. Doctors in offices of one to two physicians are more likely to refer patients to a public health department or other immunization provider.
A physician's assistant is a person qualified to perform routine medical services. This individual is professionally licensed and certified, but they may not have the extensive med school education of a doctor.That said, PAs do complete almost three years of postgraduate study and more than 2,000 hours of rotations.
