in Saugatuck, MI |
Dr. VanWylen was the person who performed my Colonoscopy. This gave him a first hand view of what was going on. Dr. listened to me, answered my questions and concerns, explained my test results and condition in great detail. then we discussed my options, together we decided the best route for me. He made me feel so comfortable. The procedure and recovery was much easier than I expected. Dr. Stephen J. VanWylen took care of me one year ago. I don't remember the last time I felt so good.Thank You!
in HOLLAND, MI |
Dr. VanWylen was very kind, patient, and helpful with answering my questions regarding potential surgery, we explored every option and took every test that was suggested other than surgery. In the end I went with the surgery based off the information provided and test results.
