Dr. Van is the best family physician in our area. He has been my primary doctor since 2001. Sadly though the cost of a simple checkup has more than doubled, even just to see the PA. I can no longer use this practice.

I have been going to Dr. Van for 13 years now. In the last two years, I have had to rescheduled seven times because he canceled. This is sad because I schedule time off from work when going to see him. It is also sad because I looked at him as a great doctor. I am now looking for a new doctor because my time is just as important as his and I cannot keep rescheduling and missing work.

Dr. Vanalstine is the best physician my family has seen. He listens to you and is very down to earth. Unfortunately his office staff is the worse. They do not return calls, not friendly and I have been to the pharmacy several times to pick up rx's and it is not called in. I am still waiting on a referral to another Dr. and it has been 2 weeks and they still do not have it ! If the staff would get on board this would be the best office in Augusta because he is wonderful !

Dr Van is the best physician that I have ever experienced. He is through, he educates me regarding my medications, he takes the time to truly care. I would follow Dr Van wherever he goes. But, of course, I don't want him to ever leave Augusta.

2 yrs. ago changed from another dr. in same assoc. Dr.Van Alstine had health examine & lab work done immediately when I saw him. I have hypothyroidism & was put on high vitamin D dosages & strong thyroid medication instantly. My lab workup was critical. I was getting too weak to shower w/o having to lay down. Dr. Van Alstine saved my life. I am still under his care for this condition & receiving all medicine on time w/ regular follow ups & lab work. His bedside mannier is excellent.
