09/06/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Vandenberg is our angel. We were sent to him via the emergancy room. My sweetie is a very big man and he was in a wheel chair when I brought him to Dr. Vandenberg. Within months Dr Van had Will moving and takes very good care of him. I don't know what would have happened to Will if Dr Vandenberg had not come into our lives. Thank you Dr. Vandenberg. We love ya!  Respond

21/02/10 5 5 5 5 Dr. Vandenberg has been my rheumatologist for 6 years. I have the utmost confidence in him. I'm a nurse with RA/OA and if it weren't for his care and expertise there is no way I would still be working now. He is the best in the southeast region of the U.S. bar none! He is respectful to all. He treats all individuals with much kindness. He has a great deal of experience and he is always up on the latest treatments. With the exception of Dr. Vandenberg's retirement or death, I will never use anyone else. I respect him very much.

18/06/07 5 5 5 Ive had a number of rheumatologists over the last 26 years & Dr. V. is definitely tied with one other for the top spot on the list. Hes simultaneously highly approachable & professional, pays very close attention to patient feedback, & never makes the patient feel talked-down-to. Hes very open to suggestion, & always makes the patient a key player in treatment decisions. In sum, I cant think of a single even slightly negative thing to say -- hes absolutely first-rate.  Respond
