Very caring physician. I was visiting from out of town and they was able to get me in and saved me from an emergency room.

You never see the same person. You see "intern" doctors and as soon as you develop a relationship with them, they move onto their next job, leaving you having to start from the beginning with a new doctor. Dr. Vanderheiden only ever comes in to consult with them or teach them. Rare that I saw him. Office is frequently closed for "conferences" and/or just closes early. I've been told at least three times when I'm calling to come in sick that they are closing early or to just go to the ER!

Dr. Vanderheinden and his staff (Office staff, nurses; and other practice physicians) are professional, caring, and excellent as regards listening. They never hesitate to interact with each other if there is a question/concern with respect to your diagnosis or treatment/follow-up decisions. The office staff are, at times, a little haired - but are always responsive, caring, and polite. Both my wife and I use this practice as our primary care provider.
