I absolutely love Dr. Van! He is very kind, and an excellent doctor. He doesn't rush you ever and is very thorough in his diagnosis. I've had him for at least 8 yrs and I do not have one complaint. Even when I moved out of the area, I still kept him. He's worth the drive. My husband also sees him and feels the same. I recommend Dr. Van highly. ??

Dr. Van is extremely personable and caring. Conversations with him reveals this very quickly. He explains his thinking throughout and gives you a manageable amount of options. I not only like him as my doctor but also as a person.

Dr. Van is very nice and my expierences with him have been wonderful. However, I can never get in to see him when I am sick. He's office staff is horrible. Most of the time they don't answer the phone and if they do it is with a huge attitude. The only time I can see him is if I book an appointment a couple months in advance. There is no point in having a doctor if you can't see them when your sick so unfortunately I had to find a new doctor.
