My spine surgeon suggested I schedule an appointment with Dr. Vandernoord. I was suffering from severe low back pain due mainly to osteoarthritis. The schedule involved a series of injections followed by a facet ablation procedure which so far is working well. I'm very happy with the results so far. Dr. Vandernoord is a straight up nice guy with a good sense of humor along with caring about his patients. I would not hesitate to recommend his services to anyone.

I have been treated by Dr. Vandernoord for several years and he is one of the most skilled professionals by far. He brings compassion, humor and a skill level unsurpassed in his field of expertise. It has been my pleasure to recommend others to him that have received exceptional treatment. Thank you Dr. Vandernoord!

I saw Dr. Vandernoord for debilitating back and leg pain. He administered steroid injections which were highly successful and resulted in several months of complete freedom from pain. I would willingly repeat the procedure. Dr. Vandernoord was warmly sympathetic, and both he and his assistant called after the procedure to see how I was getting along. As I was told, the injections are not a cure, but they certainly improve the quality of life short term.

I had back surgery in June, 2015 and was doing well until May, 2016 and had pain in my left leg. It progressively was getting worse until I couldn't walk the pain was so terrible. I had an MRI which revealed a cyst pressing on a nerve. After 2 spinal shots in January, 2017 by Dr. Vandernoord, the cyst popped and I am finally pain free!! He is the doctor to see if you have leg pain! I feel as though I have a new lease on life, and Dr. Vandernoord is the reason why!! He is excellent!!
