I think Dr. Vanderveen is a qualified surgeon but her office staff leaves a lot to be desired. If you call with questions you either don’t get a callback to a message or you’re told they have to ask the doctor and then never call you back. Had surgery and a week later had recovery questions. It’s been 5 business days with no answers. Not my idea of a good practice.

Dr Vanderveen removed half of my thyroid and unfortunately cut my vocal cord in the process. She minimized the risk and aftermath of vocal chord surgery which was quite intense. I’d suggest always a second opinion before surgery. She did however see up the scar beautifully

I had a thyroidectomy back in 2013 done by Dr. Vanderveen. I am in the field of healthcare and can honestly say that I felt completely comfortable in her competent hands. She was attentive before AND after the surgery and followed through with compassion, intelligence, and competence. I feel lucky that I somehow ended up in her care and am doing very well 7 years later. I cannot say enough good things about this surgeon.

Dr. Vanderveen is a renowned surgeon, so much so that people come from other states for her treatment. I came up from CO Springs for surgery because of her reputation. She's trained at the Mayo clinic, arguably the best hospital in the US. As a former hospital CEO, I know that the operative word in healthcare is CARE, which is an obvious attribute of hers. I also know that caring is a team effort. Importantly, she's imbued her staff with the concept of caring, and they are fully engaged with her philosophy. Their followup is exemplary. Dr. Vanderveen and staff are an example of what healthcare ought to be nowadays, but isn't. No comment on HCA Rose.

She does her job and seems to be compentent. I guess in this world you can't be expected to get along with everyone 100% of the time. I never want to see her again. After surgery she come in my room and "unloaded" on me about how tough the surgery was. She alerted the hospital staff of all the complications I was going to have - none of it true! I was sick of her redundant testing and even at my post op appointment I had to sign a form of the medications that were typed out that I had told her before surgery about. She stresses me out and she makes you go through hoops to receive care. The only bright spot is Paul who works there. He is the person any business would like working for them. He is competent, intelligent, efficient, and doesn't require alot of explanation.

I had a parathyroidectomy. Multiple patients and doctors recommended her as well as saying how good she is. I found her a good listener. Her answers were spot on and clear. She talked to me, not at me. Her staff is equally good and extremely helpful. My experience during the surgery was no different. I had no complications and my recovery went smoothly.

Dr. Vanderveen is truly an amazing person/doctor, she makes you feel comfortable from the start. She tells you exactly what's going on and explains the right treatment plan for you. Open to any questions/concerns you may have. Her staff is also very organized and friendly too. I trust her to do my upcoming surgery, and looking forward to feeling better.

As a retired nurse, I am pretty picky about doctors and I was very impressed with Dr. Vanderveen. The exam room has a computer display device on the wall which allowed her to explain exactly what the problem was, where it was and what would be done to fix it. I feel very confident in her skills and am anxious to have the surgery done.

Dr Vanderveen is a great doctor and surgeon. She is great with people, explains things thoroughly and spends a lot of time with patients. She is the best in her field. She has great office staff - Paul and Stacy - and great surgical staff too. Nursing staff at Rose is also very caring and professional. I came to Denver from out of town for treatment of my parathyroid condition. I came specifically to be seen by Dr Vanderveen because she is the best. Glad I did! I would recommend her to anyone.

Had parathyroid surgery done by Dr Vanderveen. Was extremely satisfied with Dr. Vanderveen, her staff and the staff at Rose Medical Center. Had moderate to severe depression prior to surgery. Six weeks after surgery, depression lifted. I have been depression free for a month, so far. I know that isn't the case with everyone, but it worked for me. Wish I had surgery sooner! Scar is minimal. Very glad I had surgery.

My entire experience from the initial visit to pre-op visit, surgery and post op visit was very positive. I can't remember everyone's name that I came in contact with but the PA (Ann?) was great, and the front desk help - Paul and Kerri, were both very helpful and patient. The whole team was a pleasure to deal with. Dr. Vanderveen was exceptional - my surgery was successful and I felt very informed and prepared for it.
