What People Say About Dr. Erik VanOs, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
I have been a patient of Dr. Van Os for many years. He is a most capable, professional, caring and kind doctor. His bedside manner prior to and after the procedure puts the patient at ease and informs the patient in detail and in very understandable language about what to expect and about the results. I have an unfortunate condition that requires frequent colonoscopies, but I have the great fortune of having Dr. Van Os as my specialist. I really believe he has saved my life with his timely and diligent care of my situation. The only small issue I had at my last office visit was a rather crowded waiting room with little space to sit. I also waited 35 minutes past my appointment time to be called to the procedure room by the nurses, but the doctor performed the procedure even slightly ahead of schedule. The waiting room and waiting time are certainly no reflection on the doctor.

Dr. Van OS did a fine job on my recent colonoscopy and has generally provided excellent advice and counsel. Last year, I had colon cancer and he knew exactly what to do and which surgeon and oncologist to use. Bedside manner is really great and he helps my confidence.

Dr. VanOs has been treating me since 2007 for various gastrointestinal issues. His care has been excellent in dealing with my GERD, Barretts esophagus, and other issues. I am currently being monitored for successful remediation of high grade dysplasia associated with Barrett's. I highly recommend Dr. VanOs as a professional who cares.

Dr. VanOs is a model of "a patient's doctor". He is personable yet fully professional. He takes the necessary time with one to ensure an understanding of his diagnosis and treatment. I've been under his care for approximately 12 years and would fully recommend him to anyone. An EXCEPTIONALLY fine doctor.

Dr. Van Os has treated me on 5 occasions from 2005 to 2018. He practices at the epitome of his profession and combines that with a doctor/patient demeanor by talking "to" rather than "at" a layman. He should be at the top of a list of Gastroenterologists being considered by anyone. Seeking help with personal health issues needs to be combined with confidence in those that you confer with and Dr. Van Os certainly fills that need to the nth degree. He and his staff are all professionals.

Dr. Van Os introduced himself prior to my colonoscopy and explained everything that was going to happen. He was very personable and I felt very confident that I would be well taken care of. After the procedure, he came in and spoke with me about the findings and put them in very common terms and made sure I understood and if I had any questions. I was give a full typed report with lots of details which I appreciated so that I could reference later.

I found Dr Van Os to be very agitated and un-compassionate at my latest appt. He didn't listen to what I had to say.

I can't think of practice or a doctor that I would rather consult and visit when needed than Dr. Erik Van Os. He is competent, clear, helpful, knowledgeable, above reproach and caring. My wife and I have been his patients in regards to our gastroenterological related needs for the past 10-15 years and we have always been completely satisfied with his counsel and treatment. We highly recommend him to all without any hesitation whatsoever. You will not be disappointed when you visit him.

I have, over the past 15 years, undergone two screening colonoscopies by Dr. Van Os. He and the clinic personnel are completely professional, totally accessible, etc. The facility is first-rate, as is Dr. Van Os.
