Patient Comments (1)
Santa Barbara, CA |
I would not recommend Dr. Vandenter due to his office staff. There were several unreturned calls,not telling the doctor I called and asking him to return my call, not having my procedures okayed with insurance beforehand and no follow through when being told she'd do something. Terrible office management. I did appreciate Dr. Van Deventer because of the time he gave me each visit
