She explains procedures very well, if you listen.... She performs pain relief injections very well, has explained each procedure very well and will inform you when she thinks it going to hurt you..... And hurt it does. She is dedicated and compassionate. I still have pain but less thanks to her....RWN

John doe in Chicago, IL – Feb 06, 2017
In response to the review indicating Dr. Vanderby should have mentioned the injection would be painful is ridiculous. It is 100% common sense that if you are having an injection (not a little shot in your arm) it's not going to be comfortable. I am a relatively new patient and just had my third injection in my back. It is not an exact science as to the exact location of where to inject. Everyone has a different issue and I think dr. Vanderby is wonderful even though I don't have 100% relief.

Diane S. in Lincolnshire, IL – Jun 18, 2016
I went to Dr. VanDerby for an outpatient epidural shot to relieve lower back pain in addition to a nerve issue that was in extreme pain. I met with her 2 weeks prior to the procedure. At the time, she did NOT bring up the crucial information concerning the pain in which SHE would inflict during the procedure. She did NOT advice me that there was a sedation option that should have been administered during this procedure to prevent me from feeling the extreme paint that she inflicted upon me.
