Dr. Vande Zande requested. A weight bearing X-ray. Immediately after my child, doctor's appointment. The imaging department. Did not do a weight bearing X-Ray. When I specifically said he needed 1 /, Vande Zande request. She said she was going against the doctor's orders and not doing awake Bering Xray. This does not reflect negatively on Dr. Vande Zande, but the imaging department. Thank you.

Dr. Vande Zande and his nurse, Linda, are amazing! They truly care about their patients, take the necessary time needed, don't make you feel rushed, the assessment is very thorough and Dr. Vande Zande makes sure you understand everything before you leave. He dictates in the room in front of me so I can hear everything again which is helpful in case I missed it the first time. I am thankful for both of them.

In the past there was more time for Dr. VandeZande to give me a very thorough exam and answer my questions. I was in and out in 35 minutes which in my opinion was pushing me through only to make more money vs truly looking out for the patients health and best interest.

Dr. Vande Zande and Linda have been my care team for almost 30 years. Not only is Dr. VZ one of the most intelligent, well-read, multiple system clinical physicians I've ever encountered, he also always listens to my concerns for myself and my children and has prayed with me on multiple occasions. He studies our complete health picture and treats us aggressively when warranted. He knows his patients as people, not just bodies to fix. I have stayed with Pella Regional because of Dr. VZ and Linda.

Very good care. I've always liked the care he gives. I was also very pleased that he ordered an x-ray immediately after my appointment so I didn't have to make another appointment.

I was sad to hear that physicals have gone to 30 minutes. Dr. Vande Zande is always had an hour physical with me and I felt very comfortable in that. I would suppose I'm going to be charged the same for a 30 minute as a as an 1 hour like I'd had previously and I find that very disturbing and very hard for the doctor and very hard for me as well as the patient. I would appreciate it if you would look into that and see if something can be done about that.
