He's definitely more determined than any other doctor I've had to get to the bottom of what's wrong with me. He's not just in it for the paycheck like other doctors sometimes seem to be. Almost like he makes your best care his personal mission. I believe he treats every patient the way he would his own family.

Dr. Van Staden is the best! I have been with him for years and he has saved my life several times. I have complicated medical issues and I wouldn't trust anyone else. In regards to his negative reviews, he is honest. If you don't want someone to be straight forward with you and to sugar coat things then this is not the doctor for you. Personally, when it comes to my health, I want and need the honesty.

First of all let me say Dr. Van Staden is the best! He saved my husband's life, he caught serious problems other doctors missed. In fact he would be the only doctor my family ever go to except for two reasons, first he moved to Bountiful (he used to be in layton), and second his current staff is terrible! There used to be this one girl that kept everything together and now she is gone and it is awful dealing with the new staff. Other than that we recommend him to everyone.

Dr. Van Staden takes the time to listen to a patient's concerns and is a root cause analysis doctor. He is very personable, knowledgeable, and thourough. Sometimes this results in a slight delay from appt time but I'd rather be seen and have a good experience 10 minutes later than to be rushed for the sake of "on-schedule" churn.

Dr. Van Staden: Very knowledgeable. Takes time to listen to patients complaints. Thorough! Explains examination and discusses in detail, his diagnosis and proposed treatment protocol. Very generous with his time. Does not hurry through any part of the examination/diagnoses process. Very pleasant and congenial!!

Dr. Van Staden was my primary physician for awhile. There were several times he was really harsh and yelled at me. I simply was asking if a medicine had any side effects. There was another occasion where he decided to let his temperament get the best of him. I do not think he is professional, respectful, or level headed. I have known of several other people that have received the same treatment from him. There are plenty of great physicians- you don't need to settle for this one.

I am shocked!! This man was very unprofessional, rude, sarcastic and he made me feel so low and embarrassed, I had to leave. I have only been in UT for 2wks trying to est. healthcare because of the serious condition of my entire spinal column and other issues. I am on long term meds that cannot be abruptly stopped or I can die. I will be out as of tom. He told me he would not give me my meds and was cold and sarcastic about it. He had the nerve to say, "this is not a drive thru for meds" WHAT?!

Dr Van Staden is extremely caring and spends a lot of time listening to and understanding my concerns. He explains my treatment options to me and reasons for my medications and their purpose. He is very thorough. My family and I are very happy with his care and we are always able to get in with last minute emergencies.

Gavin is always good to listen to all my concerns. He is honest and concerned about my health (physical and mental).
in N.S.L, UTAH |
Gavin was a sarcastic,rude,& un-professional MD. I felt verbally attacked by him after telling him Im disabled on ssdi & started to answer questions telling him my diagnosises,medical/family history,& list of all meds plus where go get longterm treatment.He made ignorant shallow, offensive comments to me after telling him everything.I made the appointment with him only for a follow-up after a accident & hospitalized with a fractutrd back,sliped discs.never looked at my back,&hardly discussed it.

I left his office in tears this week. He was so rude and condescending. He made very rude and unsolicited remarks about my weight without even asking what my diet or eating habits consisted of. I am a small famed woman who has never weighed more than 120 lbs and am currently 112 lbs. He got in my face and said that I was extreme malnourished, and needed more protein and that was why I had broken my ankle, which was not even the reason I was there to see him. Ha was short, rude and belittling.
