I just had surgery by Dr. Van Loveren on Monday and so far so good. Let me first say that he is absolutely amazing! He is not only in my opinion and many others the best there is but also has a bedside manner second to none. He actually cares for his patients and listens. I had a large skull based tumor that ended up being quite a challenge to get out but he did it. Would also like to recognize his protege Dr. Jayson Sak who I also have only rave reviews for. Both were simply wonderful!!

Dr. Van Loveren is in a class by himself. He exceptional skills, experience and caring for patients are evident in everything he does. And he just does not miss a beat. He is attentive, conscientious, respectful and rigorous. His clinical knowledge is remarkable. While he is a neurosurgeon, he does not take his knife to all matters, and is most concerned about what is best for the patient.

Dr. Van Loveren is an incredible surgeon. He has impeccable bedside manor. He is kind, gentle, trustworthy and compassionate and I can tell he genuinely cares for me as a patient. He saved my life as well as my vision. He removed a large pituitary macroadenoma that was causing me to lose my vision and today, a year later, my vision has been restored and the MRIs show no trace of the tumor.I would recommend Dr. Van Loveren 150%.

Dr. VanLoveren, whom I had never met before, gave me detailed information about my acoustic neuroma, treatment options, and follow up. I opted for surgery and was told the expected outcome, comlications, etc. He and the other doctors and nurses that I saw were thorough and I did not feel rushed. All INCLUDING the non medical staff were competent, professional and 'went the extra mile'. Jack L. Tampa

His secretary will never give me an appointment with him. He's a nice guy, but I'm not sure such a good doctor. I'm always being scheduled with one of his assistants who isn't knowledgeable of my condition. If he turfs you off to a lesser doctor, beware. VanLoveren promised me to look into a procedure that could give me relief, then dodged my calls & emails for months til he finally said he didnf want to do it. He also left me with a broken shunt he installed.
