Spokane, WA |
Dr. Van Buren is a very nice/genuine man. He has excellent bedside manners. He always takes the time to listen to my questions/concerns and is able to explain his 'diagnosis' in layman terms. I have had 5+ appointments in the past 2 months and each visit he has been on time (he's in the room w/in ~5 min of his nurse checking me in), he's answered all my questions, and I have never felt rushed at any appointment. I highly recommend Dr. Van Buren. His nurse Carol is wonderful too!

Seen him twice in ER on same day for a freak nose bleed that just wouldn't stop. He ended up doing a cauterizing of nose. Needless to say, this doc is a miracle worker. I no longer have headaches!! He's now my main ENT now!
