Had partial parathyroidectomy of right lower adenoma due to hyperparathyroidism. Dr. Van Fossen was very professional - kind and informative with superb surgical technique. No complications. Small lower neck incision in skin fold healing beautifully. Continue to follow her instructions of applying Vitamin E and Sunblock SPF 30 to incision daily. Excellent experience with excellent surgeon. Added bonus was pleasant competent receptionist and assistant. Not able to correct earlier glitch in survey

Dr. VanFossen was my surgeon for a mastectomy. She is very compassionate, understanding and knowledgable. She explains everything in a way that can be understood and takes plenty of time to answer all questions. I highly recommend Dr. VanFossen
