I visited Dr. Vandergriend to remove a small lesion on my scalp. I couldn't have been happier with his care. He was courteous, personable, and very respectful of my needs. Recognizing that a visit wasn't particularly convenient due to the drive time from work, he was able to do the procedure during the first office visit rather than scheduling a second visit. Additionally, he used dissolvable sutures so that I wouldn't need to return for a second visit to have them removed.

Went to my ENT, found a lump, did a needle biopsy, negative, then a larger lump on other side sent me for a CT Scan, results inconclusive, so I got in right away with Dr. Vandegriend, he thoroughly explained the scan in a way my wife and I both fully understood. He scheduled surgery and removed a large fast growing benign tumor. He did an excellent job and I have no scar due to his talented post-surgery stitching! Recovery was short and painless, he did a great job! I highly recommend him!

Dr. Vandegriend took excellent care of me before and after my surgery. I would highly recommend him to anyone of my family members or friends. I may have to have surgery on my other side of my thyroid, eventually, and I will definitely go to Dr. Vandegriend.
