I have been seeing Dr. Vanderheiden since I moved to Waco 3+ years ago. I also see several other doctors -- primary care, etc. I thought I had the best Endocronolist ever in Tyler, Texas but Dr. Vanderheiden is the best doctor I have ever seen. I'm 76 years old so thats quit a few doctors. She is very professional yet very down-to-earth. She is always available and I feel as if she really does care. I see her for diabetes yet she is concerned for my over-all health. Her staff is also over-the-top. I never dread seeing her even when my sugar is out-of-control. She never lectures and wants to help you obtain better control. She's the best.

Dr. Vanderheiden is the best Doctor I have ever been to. My diabetes had been uncontrolled for over 20 years. I felt hopeless. Within days of my visit and following her directions my blood sugars were within normal range for the first time ever and have remained there for two years now. Her professionalism and positive demeanor set the tone for the entire office. Everyone that works there is a joy to be around.

I am so happy with the care I have been receiving from Dr VanderHeiden. It has been years since I have been to such an outstanding endocrinologist. I have diabetes that has been out of control for quite sometime. There was no judgement from her at all. She just wanted to get me on the right page. The medication she prescribed have truly turned my struggles around. She is very thorough, informative & kind. I have recommend her to several people.

I saw her for the first time at the end of January. The entire staff and Dr Vanderheiden were wonderful. She listened to my concerns, ordered test to figure out what was going on and even addressed my other concerns. I had my results the next day and a new RX called in that afternoon. They’ve also answered more questions via email promptly as well.

I've had long-term thyroid issues which have not been effectively addressed. I am also of peri-menopause age; it has been challenging to address and differentiate both issues. She is patient and takes time to listen, to examine and evaluate, doesn't overmedicate.

Dr. Vanderheiden is one of the most professional, knowledgeable, and kind people I have ever met. After many years of unanswered doctor’s visits, Dr. Vanderheiden was able to tell me exactly what was going on within my body and provide me with ways to manage my disease as well as lifelong solutions to care for my body from the inside out with the help of medications, the proper diet, and exercise. After years of wondering what was wrong, she helped me understand what was going on with my body.

Very thorough, and is very easy to understand. She takes the time to review everything before she walks into an appointment and knows whats going on when she walks in. She spent the time with us to help us understand everything. She also pointed out and rectified some discrepancies on pathology that were both confusing and somewhat alarming. Her nurse is great and the rest of the office staff were very helpful, considerate, and thoughtful in setting up future tests and appointments

I've been type I diabetic for 27 years. In that time I have had 6 endocrinologists. Dr. Vanderheiden is by far the best, in terms of her knowledge, her dedication to her patients, and her desire to be a partner in my diabetes care. She explains everything she does, answers all of my questions, encourages me, and is patient with me when I've had a setback. I love having a great doctor, but I really appreciate having a great friend and partner in my healthcare.

She is the best Endocrinologist that I have seen and of course the only one that I have seen for my Thyroid problem. She is very kind, caring, listens to her patients, and takes her time with patients. I would recommend her to anyone that is looking for an Endocrinology. Thanks Dr. VanderHeiden for all your help and what you do.

This Dr. will not see new patients without a referral from an existing doctor even when insurance does not require one. They were not helpful. I have a high deductible insurance plan and am not going to waste money going to a PCM for something I need to see a specialist for considering this is a condition I have dealt with for over a decade. I don't need to see a PCM who can't help.
