Excellent experience with Dr Vande Maele, would recommend him to anyone. He was very good about explaining my condition, what treatment and procedures he thought appropriate, and why. He answered all of my questions truthfully and patiently. He came to the hospital every day to check on me, asked how I was feeling, and tell me what was next. He never seemed to be in a rush, took the time to listen to my concerns. I highly recommend him.

He is ethical, willing to do a colonoscopy and esophagogastroduodenoscopy on same day despite less money. He does colonoscopies on people under age 50 who want them, like for chronic constipation. He has a good reputation as a surgeon. His office asks his patients to critique the service that they receive from him and his office. He makes sure that nursing assistants correctly attend to his patients in the hospital (Valley Regional Medical Center).

Through and follows through on everything, Explains in detail even though I interrupt, Answers all questions, great awesome bedside manners, Came very, very highly recommended by my pcp of 37 years, Just gives you a great feeling. At first was worried but after meeting Dr. Vande Maele my mind was at ease. He said he really had to work hard on me as was a nasty Gall Bladder and was able to do all without having to open me up. I am very thankful for having Dr. Vande Maele as my Surgeon.
