I've gone to Dr Van Putten for many years and followed him to several locations. I've had everything from routine exams to surgery on my eyelid to allergic reactions to many glaucoma meds and he stuck with me through it all. I'm very satisfied and would highly recommend him and his crew to anyone who is serious about having healthy eyes and vision. If you want "hand holding", it's probably not the place to go. They are too busy for that.

I've gone to Dr. Van Putten several times over the years and so does my entire family. Beyond happy with the level of service and personal care he provides each and every time I visit. Would highly recommend.

Another person stated this site only posts good reviews so I'm not going to waste my valuable time. However, you couldn't pay me to go back to that place!

Dr VanPutten is wonderful, from his surgical knowledge to his treatments he is very skilled. He has done everything from Botox to liposuction, fillers and is great at ever thing he does. He will not do something he feels is not necessary and is very open and honest. His office staff is wonderful and his office is incredible with beautiful art and very large and modern, his exam rooms are the same way, exceptional. He is incredible. I would recommend him with great confidence to anyone!
