Patient Comments (2)
Dr. Vangsness grants a patient an enormous amount of time during an appointment. He will answer questions or concerns thoroughly. He is conservative with treatment. He is innovative. I have returned to him after 10 plus years. He provides a patient the care they expect from a physician. I have the same confidence in Dr. Vangsness as I did years ago. Dr. Vangsness and his staff receive the 5 star rating from me.

Wonderful Dr. he is very caring and I really trust his expertise. He also saved my life when I had an internal hemorrhage after having a liver biopsy (nothing he had to do with) was able to see me as emergency appt. thinking it was a shoulder problem and he immediately diagnosed me and admitted me into the hospital. Additionally he did a partial knee replacement and gave me a new outlook in life. Thank you Dr! forever thankful trust you so much that he is even treating my son
