Dr. Libby has been taking care of me since 2005. He is a very knowledgeable, skilled, personable, and kind physician. I feel lucky to have found him. I am a physician too - though I was a patient first - and I really appreciate his bedside manner and expertise. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Libby is very caring and knowledgeable. I switched to him after Dr. Vanneman retired and I am happy with him so far. He laid out my entire case and reviewed all of my medical history with me. He took plenty of time to explain things to me and is just as professional and caring as Dr. Vanneman. Both are a class act!

Stephen Pearson – Feb 15, 2018
Had Dr. Libby for several years. While he's fine for regular ongoing treatment or preventative procedures, he's horrible about dealing with anything requiring attention that can't wait 3 months for an appointment. He's also reluctant to call patients back even when he plans to follow up. You typically wait a week after putting in a call to talk with him regardless of the issue and its severity. Waiting 3 months or more for any office appointment is also unacceptable.
