I appreciate that Dr. Vande Zande remembers not only me but my wife and children as well. I am so happy with the care provided as always. Linda and Dr. Vande Zande are almost like family and level of care is fantastic. He listens to questions. Answers any question I have. Explains everything fully. Outstanding Job.

I am still concerned about the lack of privacy when checking in and having to stand when doing so. I really don't want to hear about a lady leaving a specimen before her surgery. Otherwise, everything was fine.

I appreciate that you are taking measures to prevent the spread of illness but once we have been screened I do not see a need to then wear a mask. I would like the option on whether or not to wear a mask. I have been disappointed with the demeanor of my doctor. When he is having a bad day it is verbalized. It makes for uncomfortable visits and an environment where I don't feel like I can express my concerns or ask the questions I might have. I don't feel I am listened to during the visit. On a side note and a positive of my visit was I am very impressed with the nurses who administer the vaccine shots. I have talked with Amanda and Patrice on different occasions and they are very knowledgeable. They listened to me and explained my treatments/options well and together I felt we were able to make the best choices for my child.

Hi, my son saw Dr. VandeZande last week. Linda of course is always friendly and compassionate and always willing to do whatever she needs to do to get the appointment started, and then when Dr. VandeZande came in, he was absolutely familiar with my son and was attentive to him. It was a well child exam, but it did not feel rushed. He knew his family history and also his medical history and was completely professional and as always a wonderful experience.

If I had that kind of experience with any other doctor, I'd be satisfied all the time, but this doctor is very exceptional, and his manner and way he talks to you, and his thoroughness.
