About Dr. Vrablik

Philosophy of care

I treat people the way I would want to be treated.

Why I entered medicine

I knew at a very early age that I wanted to be a doctor. My mom, who was a nurse, inspired me. I also had recurrent ear problems when I was a child and loved both my pediatrician, Dr. Ruboy, and my ear, nose and throat specialist, Dr. Partlow. They both were kind and treated me well, even when I needed surgery or had an emergency. It was these positive early experiences that interested me in a medical career. I became interested in occupational medicine in 1994 by chance -- I was a resident and I was asked to cover a vacation. I really enjoyed seeing employees and never looked back.

Community involvement

I am currently a volunteer Admissions Field Force Representative with the United States Military Academy at West Point. We support the Boy Scouts of America, the Leonard Pool Society, the United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley and our local church. I am also a member of the Allentown Health Bureau Board of Health, the University of Pennsylvania Occupational Medicine Residency Program and a member of the Pennsylvania Occupational and Environmental Medicine Society Board of Directors.

Personal interests

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my wife and three children. We like to travel, hike and camp. I also enjoy geocaching, home improvement and landscaping projects -- anything that gets me outdoors. Professionally, I have an interest in cervical spine injuries. I, myself, had a neck injury and a herniated cervical disc several years ago that required microdiscectomy surgery.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
