I saw Dr. VanFossan for different reasons...I liked him very much but felt he did not offer much medical advice after having a stroke. I saw him for a followup and he offered little advice...As a person, I really like him, perhaps he is burnt out after seeing so many Patients over the years,

Dr. Fossan found a problem of a cyst within my spinal cord that two other neurologists could not find years before even though the problem existed and was causing numbness at that earlier time.
