Dr. Vande Zande is an excellent provider. I've been seen since 1992. So 29 years and he has always treated my family with the utmost care and professionalism. He is as without even mentioning the medical care that we get, is top notch. So I recommend him to anybody. He is the most awesome doctor I've ever had in my life. And I will be very sad when he retires.

Dr. VandeZande is an excellent physician. He is very detail and in-depth and generally cares about his patients and their health.

Only issue I had was that we were very rushed for time with the clinic's new directive for Doc's to spend less one on one time with patients during their was fine for me but sad that they need to feel so rushed......

Dr. Vande Zande and his nurse Linda or the best for it.

The care was great, but it seemed rushed. The doctor said they now had only 30 minutes to do a physical. In my estimation, that is too short to provide the quality of care that your clinic has had for many years.

My doctor visit was for my annual physical. I enjoyed the visit, as usual, and my doctor answered all my questions, though I am still a bit indecisive about taking estrogen. My biggest disappointment with the visit was that my doctor has been forced to cut the time for an annual physical back to 30 minutes from whatever it was before. He asks lots of questions and is very careful about recording family history and getting the background for every patient. Being cut back to 30 minutes prevented him from taking his time with his questions. We still got to talk about enough, but I didn't enjoy the experience as much as I usually do. He felt rushed, and I felt that I couldn't ask him everything because there just wasn't time. To be clear, I'm not blaming my doctor -- he did tell me enough and listened to me. I'm blaming the insurance company or the "higher-ups" at the medical center who have forced this change in scheduling. It was not as nice.

I was a few minutes late but everybody was so nice. I feel like it is a visit to see family when I come into the clinic. Everyone is so friendly and the conversation is great. The doctor and nurses listen to you. They are happy to see you.. I feel sad when I leave though as I do not want the conversation to stop.

Dr. VandeZande and Linda are top notch professionals that I trust completely with my care. The call center is a joke and actually extends the time needed to get to my provider. This needs MAJOR improvement
