Dr VanLoveren took the time to listen. After years of pain and struggles with Intercranial hypertension he offered to help with a shunt.

2 months after brain surgery my wife continues to improve. She had MVD surgery in May of 2016 that left her vomiting over 20 times a day every day for over 850 days. took 2 years to get her first brain surgeon to release a video of the procedure that showed he damaged her vestibular nerve that was causing her vomiting. I cant begin to tell you the living HELL my wife had to endure for over 2 years. Thank you Dr. V for giving her life back (Google woman vomiting for 800 days ) see our story

Recently I looked for the best Neuro surgeon in the country to diagnose and treat a very rare glioblastoma on the pineal gland. I researched everyone from the top cancer centers and decided on Dr. V. Besides being an exceptional surgeon and excellent listener he took time to clearly and honestly explain the risks and benefits of surgery and treatment to my anxious family. The tricky biopsy and procedure was performed without complications and he remains a trusted friend. He is a rare doctor.

Absolutely the best there is. Kind, compassionate, as well as the best surgeon there is. Dr.Van Loveren, along with his fellow Dr. Jayson Sack, removed a large brain tumor on my left cerebellum 6/05/17. Not one problem. Dr. Van Loveren, as well as Dr. Sack , are both amazing.

I was told my cavernous sinus meningioma shouldn't be touched. I elected to get another opinion and found this most gentle and brilliant surgeon. He gave me options. After a few years, we had pretty much decided that the surgery was necessary because of severely worsening symptoms. So gentle and empethetic. I felt totally comfortable in his care and will trust his guidance for years to come.

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.
