Dr. Van Kooten performed surgery on my abscessed chin. He approached my surgery with a plan and expertly articulated it to me with confidence which in turn provided me with the assurance and confidence to consent to the surgery. I was in surgery and out recovering in a very short time. His level of concern for me was excellent and his professional expertise resulted in success! I can’t say enough about Dr. Van Kooten!

He saw me for five minutes after I waited for 30 minutes. I've had a sore throat for a year with coughing, hoarseness and throat pain and he did not examine me. He didn't look in my throat, feel my throat or even check my breathing. He spoke to me for five minutes and referred me to a practice for TMJ pain that does not take medical insurance.

Great staff, friendly, professional, and helpful. Dr. VanKooten is one of the best, if not the best in the field. He probably deals with adults most in the hearing area, however he even treated my daughter who was only 5 at the time for overly sensitive hearing issues. He was really good with her and you could tell he is good with children and adults, including the elderly clients. I trust him with any of my family and friends and would recommend him to anyone. His expertise is impressive.

From the beginning he lacked any warmth or sense of empathy and began to ask all the general questions. He then took the two stupid sticks and started the exam. After his five minute inspection he then began to blame her previous history saying, I cant perform miracles. He then prescribed medicine and gave no other advice. I physically had to ask this quack, what do we do in the coming days. He said, come back in 72 hours and ill decide what to do next, saying again, I can’t perform miracles.

I scheduled an appt over the phone, they directed me to their website to fill out the necessary paperwork ahead of time. They called and reminded me of the appt. I show up for the appt. and they look at me like I'm from Mars. They have no record of my appt. saying somehow I must have been "deleted". Now, they would have to work me in and they wait will probably be a number of hours because there are patients there ahead of me with appts. WHAT A JOKE THIS PLACE IS!

My experience with Dr. Van Kooten as well as his staff was very positive. He is a very professional ENT doctor with a great knowledge within his profession. I had throat surgery almost three weeks ago and he explained exactly what the procedure would be - what to expect after the surgery and took his time with me to answer any questions I had. I had a biopsy done and as soon as the results came in he called me immediately to let me know results. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Van Kooten.
