I consulted with Dr VanRaalte who came highly recommended by my physical therapist and pcp. I had Some anxiety prior to my appointment but her pleasant manner and expertise put me at ease. She explained in detail and came up with a promising treatment plan for me. I was extremely positive when I left there and confident in her excellent care. She and her office staff arr professional and caring. I highly recommend her and if it takes time to get an appointment she is worth the wait.

I began seeing Dr. Van Raalte because of issues with incontinence. With her extensive evaluation and patient education what I learned from her practice in approximately 2 1/2 months I was able to significantly improve my situation. I am continuing with more information to work toward a better even outcome.

An ouatanding , professional appointment—no significant waiting time at the office and most importantly the feeling that Dr Van Raalte wasn’t rushing at all. She allowed me all the time I needed to ask a number of questions, answered them all, and left me feeling completely cared for.

I found my entire experience to be fantastic. Everyone at the office was friendly, helpful, and just put you at ease. I had a pubovaginal sling that corrected my issues with my bladder. I would recommend tbe procedure to everyone! The entire process was great from beginning to end. Dr. Van Raalte answered all my questions and put me at ease that my decision to go forward was an easy one. The procedure itself went well and I went home not even needing a tylenol!

I was a patient of Dr. VanRaalte for over a year. I was misdiagnosed and given treatments for overactive bladder that were not appropriate for my condition. Her physicians assistant keep pushing surgery on me which I refused. She was not the doctor and it was not her place to do that. When the office got the Mona Lisa Laser that expensive procedure was heavily pushed. The office is badly run and its motivation is pushing off the most expensive procedures for profit. Found a better doctor.
