What People Say About Dr. Carol Vanpetten, MD
Very cold bedside manner. On my husband’s first visit after being in the hospital and concerns of muscle atrophy and twinges with burning sensations. He talked to her about all his symptoms leading up to his hospital visit and what symptoms he was currently experiencing. She hardly said anything to him and just sat at her laptop typing in the information he was relaying to her. She wasn’t empathetic or corncerned about finding out what was going on with his body.

This person is full of herself. Snarky attitude when asked a few details about procedures and medications as if details are not comprehendible by the patient.
