He is not a doctor he is a certified physicians assistant.
Hope that helps.

You must be a little skeptical of him, right? Me too, he seems to be knowledgable, but I do know he is not a doctor, I have been to him before, long time ago, is he still married to Cintron, the doctor? He was her P.A., when I saw him. They were having marital problems then, she was more than a little weird.

He is a pill pusher is what he is! My kids don't have a father now thanks to his help of supplying him with the pills he "needed". I know he made the decision to take the pills but when a dr knows you just came from 30 day rehab for a drug addiction to narcotics and still writes you a script for pills....your not a good dr and don't care about no one but yourself and how your gonna get your next fix!

Hector is a P.A. but he knows more than any "family Dr." that I've ever been to. In fact he saved my child's life. My son was very sick and I had been taking him to Hamblen Pediatrics and they would just change antibiotics every 2 weeks. I made an appointment with All About You Family Medicine and the only opening they had was with Hector. He examined my son and was very concerned that if not treated he would certainly die. He sent me and my son to the hospital. Come to find out he had double pneumonia and he was in the hospital for 9 days.So don't go bashing Hector. My comment to the lady whose husband had been to rehab for drugs...If he wanted pills he could go practically any where in Morristown and get them and I think he lied to Hector in order to get narcotics because Hector doesn't write narcotics for just anyone.Point made...if a druggie wants drugs he will find them somewhere.

As far as im concerned from a source well known with Dr. Vega his liscence was taken away for 1 year for what that they didn't go into. He is not a doctor he got his liscence back but he DOES give narcotics AND to people that don't even need it. He has been turned in for it and as far as my source is concerned he is fixing to be investigated. He might help just some but he does not take care of those in real need. And i agree with "amc" . In MY OPINION he is a joke a "DOC FOR THE DRUGS". reminder everyone is entitled to there own opinion, like it or not this is mine. Thank you :)

I never said he was a Dr. I said that he is a P.A.(physician assistant) I guess your "source" doesn't know all he/she thinks they know or the "source" would know why he supposedly had is license taken away. I agree with you that everyone is entitled to there own opinion. Opinions are like a**holes everybody has one!

Hector Vega is a great medical professional. My husband was seeing him and I went back with my husband. I was coughing and he IMMEDIATELY said he didn't like the sound of my cough so listened to my lungs and advised me that he believed I had bronchitis and I wasn't even a patient of his. That is the kind of person I want over my medical needs so I became his patient. He is one that isn't worrried about being paid or not if medical attention is needed. Hector Vega does not do any type of pain management or anyone else at the place. That is made clear before you become a patient there. They might, but I don't know for sure, give you one prescription for a month til you get in with a specialist. My husband needs regular pain management for serious health problems and so was sent by Vega to a specialist. Hector Vega cares about his patients and not about the money. You don't find that often any more. He takes the time necessary to keep you healthy.

I may be wrong but I don't think a P,A, is supposed to write prescriptions. Dr. Hector had his license suspended for writing prescriptions and doing things an assistant is not supposed to do. I heard he was sued for trying to remove a tatoo off a lady and she ended up having to have skin graphs she was messed up so badly. His marriage ended to Dr. Cintron because he was having an affair with one of her nurses back in the late 90s early 2000. I was told he gave permission for that nurse to obtain schedule II antidepressants which a PA is not supposed to do but don't quote me on that. Just insider information.
As for Dr. Cintron, she is the nut. I used to go to her and she had all kinds of test run on me and kept me coming back because I was anemic and she suspected I had cancer. I started going to another dr. who told me there was nothing wrong with my blood. Dr. Cintron had wild outbursts of anger at her nurses. I think she was bipolar. She changed employees a lot because they could not handle her outbursts, insults and demands and they either quit or she fired them.
I have no doubt Hector is smart and most likely a better Dr. than Cintron but the whole cituation that went on in that office back then turned me against them both.

Wow! those are some strong words- especially from someone who doesn't even know any facts at all and is still willing to slander someone's name. First, Hector has NEVER said he was a Doctor, he has been a PA for over 20 years and has never even once had his license suspended or "taaken away" as you have said. He is extremely knowledgable and has a genuine true heart that really cares for his patients/ which is why people take advantage of him. The only people that get mad at him are the ones that don't get their way...I just wonder, is that the case with you?...yes, you are entitled to your opinion, you're just not entitled to say outright lies as if they were fact

I LOVE Hector! He is the only medical professional that will see me because I do not have health insurance. I do have the means to pay for medical office visits and EVERY physician's office I called will not see me because I do not have health insurance and they also said that having the ability to pay does not make a difference. I have medical conditions which require medical treatment and I can pay for the visits but I can not pay $600.00 per month for health insurance and have a year waiting due to pre-existing conditions. This man TREATS people, medically and also treats you like a human being and his sincerity show's, its not just an act. And I am sick and tired of hearing "Pill Pusher" that is simply false. The medical professional only has the ability to prescribe and cannot hold the patients hand 24 hours per day to make sure they are taking it correctly. The patient has responsibilities as well. Further, a lot of people who are addicted to medications not only get them from one doctor or clinic, they can get them from multiple clinic's and some go as far as seeing other clinic's out of state. If you want to blame someone or something for the pill epidemic, blame the DEA, I have seen a couple of articles that stated the DEA themselves started the epidemic because they thought medications were easier to control than cocain...yea, that worked well didn't it. Everyone needs to stop pointing fingers and stop being enablers. If you know your family member has a problem and continues this problem and you don't intervene in some form or fashion, then you are responsible too. Everyone needs to start taking responsibility for themselves and stop bashing everyone else. And I do not care whether or not you like my opinion, it's mine and I am not going to get into a debate over this, so if you don't like what I have to say, simply keep your comments to yourself. Hector is a good man, I know him and I trust him with my life.
me too

I haven't seen hector in a long time but back when i did he was very understanding and i loved him. I believe what everyone is talking about pill pusher and losing his license was back when he worked for Dr. Foster. He only prescribed what foster told him to and when foster was investigated everyone in Dr Foster employment was suspended and investigated and their license was suspended until investigation was over. Now you know the truth, i was there!!
