So. I missed my initial appointment by 30 minutes due to work, did not have the chance to call ahead and say I would miss it, then proceeded to show up to my appointment anyways to reschedule. A few days later I receive a letter in the mail saying, "Unfortunately, due to this missed initial appointment, I find it necessary to inform you that I will not be able to serve as your primary care physician." I'm going to college in a few days and now cannot get a physical! Thanks a lot, doc!
As a new physician building my practice I do have potential new patients who simply do not show up or call ahead to cancel their initial appointment with me; this does not make for a very productive doctor-patient relationship going forward. As a result many physician offices, Lakeshore Family Care included, have elected to not reschedule such patients due to concerns for repeatedly missed future appointments.

My mother is a patient of Dr. Vandevrede. I accompanied her to a recent visit and was extremely impressed. The office staff is friendly and the wait time was minimal. Dr. Vandevrede spent a considerable amount of time with my mom in order to properly assess her health status and formulate a care plan. He is personable, compassionate, and spends the time needed to provide excellent care. He has excellent communication skills. Both my mom and I would highly recommend him.

Excellent Physician. Best I've ever had over 64 years.
It's a pleasure to care for you and your wife. Thank you.
