We always love seeing Dr. Posthuma. He is so loving and kind to our son. We would be lost without him!!!

Dr. Posthuma and Shalene are both patient, professional, and competent. I actually tell people Dr Posthuma is brilliant because he knows his stuff and he's confident. He's referred us on to others at the appropriate times and for appropriate reasons. We've never been anything but happy with his care. We've experienced some confusing and difficult health situations with this child in particular--including this visit. Dr. Posthuma is always a source of information and comfort.

Dr. Posthuma is always professional and takes plenty of time with me during my visits. Shalene is just the sweetest, most caring person too. I am lucky to have this team as my local health providers. I was not impressed by the check-in person. Rude!

Dr Posthuma, Beth and Shalene have always been so easy to talk to and have treated me and my family with the most respect anytime that were in their care. Any concern with my health that I've ever had has always been addressed and taken seriously. I trust their team completely with my health.

Dr. Posthuma and Shaylene (spelling?) are always great! They are both kind and compassionate! I am a patient that always feels silly going to the doctor's office, and they made me feel comfortable and made me feel far from silly. They are an amazing team and I'm happy to drive from my work (another hospital) to see them.
