Review of Dr. Flax


She is friendly yet professional, very knowledgeable and also efficient. This was my first appointment with her, because we were new to the area. My husband and I were very impressed with her expertise and thoroughness. We also were impressed with the operation of her practice. Her assistant took blood for a test during this visit (and I was notified of the results early the next morning!), and before we'd left I already had an appointment scheduled with a specialist. I couldn't have imagined a better first visit or experience.

Review of Dr. Flax


Saw her for wellness exam. Had pneumonia at the time.. didn’t know it but mentioned shortness of breath. She ignored it and so I figured it wasn’t a big deal. 6 weeks later I’m still dealing with pneumonia worse than ever. She only needed to explain the policy instead of ignoring me. If I would have known, I would have made another appt. writing this review because I’m contemplating going back to the ER bc I feel so bad and so mad it took this long to ignite this out.

Review of Dr. Vandewege


Way too full of himself! He refused my request to see a specialist to get a second opinion. He told me I didn't need one. I had to get a supervisor involved to get the referral. I had to change doctors too. If I was left on an island with him and a monkey I would ask the monkey for medical advice. One time I went in to speak to an office manager she made me discuss my personal health information in the lobby!!! Privacy rights anyone?

Review of Dr. Vandewege

- |

We love Dr. Vandewege. I very much appreciate that he's open to looking at less invasive, less expensive and more natural options first but won't hesitate to prescribe medications etc. if needed. I always feel as if he's really listening to my concerns and never feel rushed out of his office. Just a bonus, I have a 5 year old that is an "over reactor" ha, and had a really rough time with his shots previously. Dr. Vandewege spoke to him and showed him a "trick" that worked for my dramatic son :)

Review of Dr. Flax

- in MO |

It seems like she is in it for the money, tries to do treatment before she knows the diagnosis and my Dr. said I was placed on wrong medication. She insisted we come in for an appt. when I just needed her signature on an updated form for the school nurse to give my son his medication to prevent him from having a febrile seizure at school. I feel she has no compassion for her patients .I would not recommend her to anyone.

Review of Dr. Vandewege

- in Willard, MO |

Dr. Vandewege is the best doctor I have ever had. He is perfect for our family. His nurse Ashley is especially awesome. She has fun with my kids and makes their routine checkups fun and not scary - which as a mom I appreciate. He takes the time to listen to what I have to say and hear my concerns with any issues that we have going on. Thank you Dr. Vandewege and Nurse Ashley for caring for our family the way you do.

Review of Dr. Vandewege

- in Ash Grove |

Dr. Vandewege and his staff are excellent! He is such a caring doctor and takes the time to explain things to me. His staff always makes sure that if I have an urgent need and need to be seen right away that it happens. I have recommended Dr. Vandewege to all my family and friends.

Review of Dr. Vandewege

- in Springfield Mo. |

I feel so lucky to have such an amazing doctor, for me and my two daughter's ages 6 and 10. Definitely feel we're in the best care with Vandewage. He's caring, personable, and just all around what I expect from a great Doctor. The fact he tries a more natural way to cure a problem, rather than other options, of covering up the root of the issue, is fantastic! I think most will agree that we need more of this for our healthcare.
