    What an organized and pleasant office. After the normal 1/2 hour waiting room, the rest of the visit went like clockwork moving from room to room. All the staff members were delightful, competent, and efficient. Dr. Vander explained everything in understandable detail. I would hope you don't need a doctor like this, but if you do, this is the one to go to.

    I've been seeing Dr Vander for more years than I can count. I tried several other retinal specialists, both in this practice and one other, and was thrilled to finally find someone with whom I felt comfortable.! (Professional, good communicator, "seems to know his stuff", and VERY reassuring!) Fantastic "bed-side" manner!
