DR DAVID VAN SAVED MY HUSBAND'S LIFE LAST WEEK. He wasn't satisfied with the comments of "no change since last year's echo and nuclear stress test" and it's probably "his asthma" causing his chest pain and extreme difficulty breathing. Dr Van was able to get a heart cath done immediately. HIS DIAGNOSIS WAS EXACTLY AS HE PREDICTED! My husband had a 95% blockage in one artery and had a stint put in! Dr Van gets answers and listens to the patient. If you are not getting help, go see Dr Van!

Extremely knowledgeable about multiple specialty areas in the medical field. This overall knowledge was helpful in identifying causes of medical problems. This creates a great deal of confidence that a patient has in his abilities. Dr Van spent more time with me that other doctors and that gave me a better chance to ask additional questions and understand better my medical situation.

Dr. Van has been treating me for several years and I couldn't be happier. He and his staff always treat me with respect and a truly caring attitude. No matter what my concerns are, Dr. Van takes time to address them and always has the answer. His outgoing personality and great bed side manner are exceptional. I feel truly blessed that I have found a doctor who is willing to listen!

Dr.David is kind ,caring and very knowledgeable. He is practicing with his wife, Dr. Vicki in Griffin.I have seen them both and the practice is great again. The Stockbridge patient is misinformed probably from disgruntled staff at the practice he left- Thank you Dr Van for taking care of my family and many friends!
