I seem to have a very different experience than the other reviews here. With the new mercy health stuff, I've been able to schedule appointments easily and within a few weeks for a checkup, and right away for an actual health issue. Dr. Van Wormer himself is as great as ever. He spends time with me as a patient and makes sure he thoroughly explains everything. Most doctors today don't spend much time, and certainly don't try and help you understand what's going on. I'm so happy I stuck with him

He was my doctor for many years and until around a year ago, it really seemed like he cared for his patients. At some point, he just seemed to stop caring. His heart does not seem to be in this any more and perhaps it is time for him to retire. I have changed doctors and I really do not care to see him again as a doctor.

He was our doctor for several years, until his disappearance last year. Now, in his new office, he is very difficult to schedule an appointment with, and his 'front desk staff' are curt, unfriendly, and totally inneficiant. We thought with him now having a couple PA's to assist that the process would be more efficient, but in fact, it has gotten worse.
First time I have had something seriously wrong and he does nothing to help me. Been with him for 25 plus years. Follow up and referrals are horrid. Stay away from this and the new Mercy Health he joined
