He has been my and my husband's doctor for several years now and is very friendly and personable. He is not your typical pill pusher and does not give pills unless needed. The office staff is very nice. You are a person there not just a chart. They know you and your family.

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.
