What People Say About Dr. Jason Van Ittersum, MD

Very arrogant and self absorbed. He misdiagnosed me after a very horrible almost humiliating experience. After having me take my clothes off I sat with a gown on. He never even looked at any part of my body and asked me where I wanted him to take a biopsy from cause he couldn't find anything wrong! "I said how would I know, you're the doctor." He then just picked a spot on my arm and took a chunk out. I still have no idea what he was looking for as the test came back negative. I went to another family doctor and they treated me for the right skin problem as expected. Non caring, lacks knowledge, and obnoxious is the best I can say. Visit him at your own risk.

With a history of malignant melanoma, and being new to the area, I was referred to Dr. Van Ittersum by a friend. I needed a full body scan and I was lucky that he had a cancellation so I got in the next day. Dr. Van Ittersum was quite friendly, very knowledgeable and took the time to explain all that he found and the treatments available..performed that day! I highly recommend him and plan to return every six months.

I have seen Dr Van Ittersum and Dr Richards on visits to Norton Shores and Grand Rapids offices. Offices were neat/tidy and support staff generally ok. My issue was with clinical care, or lack of. The focus appeared to be on treatment only, and required frequent follow up by me for results, next steps etc. In spite of the presence of malignant melanoma in my family (father and brother) this was not noted or remarked upon during initial/ follow up visits. The focus was not on monitoring.

Very disappointing. A smart man with zero people skills. When I asked for a brief explanation of what he saw in my skin he told me his nurse would explain. When I pressed him he gave me a very sarcastic response, which embarrassed even his nurse. When I made arrangements to see a different doctor the next time, I was met with No, you must see him today.
