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!
