Patient Comments (1)
in Spicewood, TX |
I went to Dr. Vander Straten with a questionable skin issue. She checked me over and then decided that the thing needed to be biopsied. She did the biopsy and I never felt a thing. I then had a minor reaction to the anesthetic. She and her assistant never left my side until it passed. I really appreciate not only the professionalism, but the caring that Dr. Vander Staten has. Oh, and I arrived a half an hour early for the appointment and I was immediately seen! How amazing! Thank you!
