Dr Vallance is an amazing doctor. He is caring and very knowledgeable. However his office staff are not helpful, friendly or willing to to try to be. I hate to leave this doctor but communication is too important to me.

Dr. Vallance and NP Chris are excellent clinicians, thorough, kind, and highly competent. Best practice for Rheumatology from Northern Michigan to the Ohio border on the north and east side of the state - maybe in the whole state but I’m not familiar with Lansing or Grand Rapids options.

Dr. Vallance is an exceptional doctor. He has ALL OF THE QUALITIES you would want in a doctor. My husband and I have multiple, severe conditions which have caused chronic pain for years. Dr. Vallance treats all of those conditions and is extremely knowledgeable, caring, and compassionate. We have gone to him for 15 years. If something isn't working, he is always able to suggest a new plan. We appreciate everything he does for us in going the extra mile. Thank you, Dr. Vallance.

The reception staff is incompetent and will not let you talk. Hung up on because I questioned why I didn't receive a phone call when the staff assured me I would.

I tried to make an appt. today, really hoping he would see and help me. I havn't had much luck since my wonderful Dr. moved away last Fall. Dr. Vance was a rescource from the Michigan Association for Fibromyalgia. He's not taking any new patients until some of the ones he has leave (since they are elderly). I asked if I could be placed on a waiting list. Nope, the clerk said, all I could do is call back once every 6 months to see if the his elderly patients status had changed/died???). WOW

I have been seeing Dr. Vallance for a while now. He is very nice. He spends time with each patient. You aren't a number. I came from the U after my Dr. left abruptly. I thought I would never find another doctor I liked as much but I really do like him as much or more. I definitely recommend. The wait times are terrible considering he isn't rushing everyone thru like cattle!

Dr. Vallance is a very caring doctor. He takes his time and listens to your questions and the problems you are having. I had been having severe pain in my fingers and had gotten no help from other doctors. Dr. Vallance found a medicine that helps my problem. I have hardly any pain anymore. So glad I went to see him.

Dr Vallance is caring and very knowledgeable. He is a great listener and truly pays attention to what you have to say. His office staff, however, have little to know medical knowledge and are often a hindrance. They are polite but definitely should not work in a medical office.

I call to make an appointment at 12:30 , the phones message stated that during the hours of 12 noon to 1pm the phone won't be answered. I left a message that I was a new patient and wanted to make an appointment for a physical. No return call, good indication of the staff.

Dr. V. is the most kindest, patient physician I have ever known. I have been seeing him for just over 1 year now. He was the first Rheumatologist I have seen who really, listened, cared about me, and actually diagnosed me with Lupus. I am doing significantly better, I feel, because of Dr. V. He is also a wonderful, God fearing Christian, which is so important to me.I am so glad I found him.

I have been seeing Dr. VALLANCE for over 10 years and would not see any other Rheumatologist. He is kind, very knowledgable, and cares so much for his patients. I have recommended him to other people looking for a competent Rheumatologist. I suffer with a host of problems including rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and fibromyalgia, to name a few. He has always cared about helping me be the best I can be. Dr. Vallance does not rush you through the appt. he gives you the time you deserve.
