I have seen Dr Vandernoord 5 times for spinal injections. He is always friendly and comforting, he has always made me feel comfortable during a nerve racking procedure. I had an injection done by one of the other doctors in the practice and it was not an easy or comfortable procedure. I will schedule any future injections with Dr Vandernoord only.

I was scheduled for a 4:15 appointment. I was able to arrive at 3PM. He saw me at 3:15. Very accommodating. He was not very talkative but he and his nurse were very efficient.

Dr. Ron Vandernoord is an A+ physicain in every sense of the word. Needed a steroid shot in right shoulder. I waited too long but it is doing the trick.

In January, 2017 I got 2 spinal shots from Dr. Vandernoord, which my right leg suffered terribly for 6 months prior to the shots, and then the pain just went away!! The problem was I had a cyst touching a nerve!! Thanks to Dr. Vandernoord I have been pain free since then!! I will go see him agin if the pain comes back!! He is awesome!!!

First experience with back injections. Dr. and assistant put me at ease right away. Very personable, friendly and professional in talking me through it. After sitting for a few mins. staff checked on me twice to make sure I was doing ok before letting me go. Pleasant experience.

2nd experience using D. Vandernoord for back injections! Great bedside manner, he even sang to me to try to ease the pain of the shots which I appreciated! My mom has used him for years. All in all, I highly recommend him and Ortho Carolina!

Dr. Vandernoord was very professional and very friendly. The procedure was fast with very little pain. This was the second hip injection I've had and this one was so easy.
in Waxhaw, NC |
Very friendly, knowledgeable, and patient! Makes a painful situation as comfortable as possible.

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.
in Mooresville, NC |
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!
in Charlotte, NC |
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.
