in Lincoln, IL |
I really like Dr. Vanfleet. He took one look at the bruises on my hands and said "extended steroid use." No other doctor has ever told me what caused my severe bruising. I have asthma and use steroid inhalers daily and sometimes do a round of steroids to get my breathing back to normal. Also Dr. Vanfleet took the time to tell me how steroids have made my bones easily breakable and that I should be careful about falls and take more calcium with vitamin d. Very informative!~

Dr. VanFleet relieved my back and leg pain that I had been suffering with for 6 months. He was very thorough, pleasant, and accommodating and gave me a confident feeling that I was in good hands. I had an outpatient procedure and was amazed with how simple it all was. His office and staff are first rate! I would highly recommend Dr. VanFleet!
in Springfield, IL |
Dr Vanfleet was personable, listened to my concerns and gave me an honest opinion. An additional MRI led him to repeat what he had originally told me. Due to extensive nerve problems relating to the type of cancer I had, and my exposure to Agent Orange in Vietnam, he told me he didn't believe spinal surgery would be of much benefit to me at this point. I respect a surgeon whom obviously acts in the best interest of his patient.

I've had two Cervical Spine Surgeries from Dr. VanFleet and I Do Not recommend him to anyone!! I'm in more pain now than before the surgery!! I will Never let that doctor touch me again!! The paper work I received be for the surgery said the doctor is suppose to help someone with any pain for 8 weeks after surgery and he didn't even help me for 5 weeks!! Worst doctor I've ever had so far!! If you have an option, run away from this doctor!!!!!

Dr. VanFleet was patient, pleasant & explained procedure very clearly, wasn't in a hurry to leave the room. He was understanding regarding my concerns about spinal surgery. I am confident about the upcoming procedure.

I had Dr. VanFleet when I had my first surgery for a Herniated Disk in my cervical spine and Dr. VanFleet went above and beyond my expectations!! Highly recommended to anyone!!
in Springfield IL |
Dr VanFleet is the best of the best. He's treated me twice for 2 separate conditions. First for a discectomy which felt immediately better in recovery. Wish I had the surgery earlier! Dr explain my options and why he felt the titanium disc was the best choice for my relatively young age & family longevity. Second condition a herniated lumbar disc. We've chosen to wait on surgery and treat the pain with epidural injections. This has greatly reduced my pain. Dr weights all options before surgery.
