Excellent. I can not praise him, nursing, and his office staff (Brittney, Carol, Dianna, Jackie, & Patty) enough!!! .... I was referred to Dr. Van Vliet by another physician I work with due to his successful reconstruction results. Dr. Van Vliet has excellent bed side manners, is very attentive, does not rush your visit, explains in detail his technique, and answers every question/doubt. He is very honest and frank. In my opinion he undersells himself, but over delivers in his results.

Dr. Van Vliet is professional, personable and a very caring physician. At my first visit, I felt as if I had known him and his excellent staff a long time. He listens, he educates and walks you through the surgical process as part of the journey. I highly recommend anyone who is looking for the ideal surgeon for skill and bedside manner. As a retired Registered Nurse of 41 years, I have quite a selection of professionals to use for comparison.

Dr. Van Vliet is a rare find as he actually cares about his patients and listens to what it is they are wanting. I came in for a lipo + fat transfer and labiaplasty which I had been wanting for years. He not only did an excellent job, but continued to address my concerns (this is scary stuff) throughout the entire process. Could not be happier with the outcome.

Dr Van Vliet is by far one if the most amazing medical professionals i have ever met. He has been caring for my mother who has had to have several surgical procedures as a result of an infection. I've been so impressed with his knowledge, skill and amazing level of care for her. If it wasnt for him my mother would have lost her foot completely. I will forever be grateful for the medical care from such an amazing doctor who has cared for her as if it was his own mother. Highly recommend!!
