Love him. No nonsense and so experienced. He's your man.

Dr. Vansant answered all my questions thoroughly and gave me the information I needed to make an informed decision about my treatment options. His staff is professional and friendly. It is great to have such a well qualified Rheumatoligist available without driving 2 hours to Gainesville.

Dr Vansant had a terrible bedside manner. He asked me questions in a hostile tone. I felt like I was being attacked. I told him I had hip pain and pointed to my sides of my hip. He argued with me about where my hip was located. I told him he had a terrible bedside manner. He told me no one had ever told him that before but If i wanted a different dr he could refer me to several it didnt matter to him he had a lot of patients. I left in tears and I will never be back. I do matter. I am important.

He doesn't seem to listen. I asked about foods that may make it worse, he acted like it didn't matter but when i said when I eat sweet things it seems to be worse. He said, yes sugar can do that. Just seems to tell me to take more of the drugs he prescribed.
