Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Van Reken "Your health and looks are our concern. We practice both cosmetic and family medicine. Dr. Van Reken is detail oriented, thorough and was accepted into med school at 19. He has taught cosmetic and skin issues to other doctors. We believe if we take good care of you you'll send your friends and family in. Whatever care you've had before you'll almost certainly feel ours is more comprehensive. We spend 30 minutes on return medical patients, 1-2 hours on new patients. You'll receive a typed copy of your report on each visit detailing your medications, diagnoses, etc. Our staff is friendly and mostly bilingual. Many of our patients see us for both cosmetic and medical issues. One stop shop: get a physical, thyroid pills, Botox and laser skin care by great staff in one office. Hours: 8:30 to 6:30 Mon-Thu, 8:30-4:30 Fri, 9-3 Sat, Sun/Evenings by request."
