I was very satisfied with the breast reduction that Dr. Van Vliet performed for me a year ago. She told me exactly what to expect which made the experience a very positive one. I am so thrilled to literally have the 'weight taken off my shoulders'! Thanks for the excellent job. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Dr. Van vliet was rude and condescending towards me after my surgery. She was great before hand, but as soon as the cheque came through, she was rude, short with me, and condescending. The day of my surgery, she was 4 hours late to discharge me from the hospital, A week after my surgery, it was time to take the bandages off. I left her office feeling uncomfortable under my left breast. A few days later I noticed she had left some sterile strips full of old blood under my breast. Seemed like she missed it, as she was rushing me through the appointment. Three weeks after that appointment, I had a second follow up appointment. My breasts were noticeably two different sizes, my nipples were completely off. My left nipple was at least half an inch lower than the nipple on my right. Things were looking bad and I was horrified. Van vliet told me that I should be "happy with what I have now, because what I started off with wasn't that great." And that "I should be pleased that OHIP decided to cover my surgery because without them, I'd still be left with large breasts." Also she threatened me with printing off a before picture to show me "how bad" my breasts were before. All with a rude tone in her voice, belittling my nerves about my own body. Needless to say I left my appointment feeling hopeless, but remembering to give myself time to heal. My scars now are thick and jagged, even around my nipples, and I have zero feeling left. It has been 8 months since the date of surgery, and I have never gotten a call from their office for my 6 month follow up appointment. I am disappointed in her lack of empathy and care for patients in my situation. I wish I had done some more review before running to the first surgeon my NP recommended.

I came to Dr. van Vliet on a referral from my friend, also a patient. I had been to two other surgeons before Dr. van Vliet (both male) and decided to go with Dr. van Viet because I right away felt that she is not only very knowledgeable and gifted with her hands, but also a strong and trustworthy person. It was also important to me that she is a women and has the first hand understanding of the female body. She was fantastic! Gentle, no bruising whatsoever and my recovery was way better than I had ever imagined it would be. Dr. van Vliet checked up on me after my surgery and emailed me back quickly, if I had any concerns. I have no regrets, beyond thrilled about my results and have Dr. van Vliet to thank for it. I highly recommend!

She's the most arrogant and rude woman I have ever seen, Never even examined me properly , all those who say she has good bed side manners is a big lie . she doesnt know how to respect her patients. I did not have the feeling that I was with a doctor when I visited her. IF you are an enemy or yourself or your family members then definitely go to her. I rate her 0 out of 10 .

Had a mole removed from my young daughter's face. She attempted twice. Mole is still there, exact same size. We won't be going back, searching a more knowledgeable cosmetic surgeon for mole removal. Dr Van Vilet is very friendly though, and took the time to go over everything with us.

The moment I walked into Dr Van Vliet's office for my 1st consultation regarding my breast reduction, I had a good feeling. Dr Van Vliet has excellent bedside manner and made me feel very comfortable about my decision to have a reduction. She described the surgery as a happy experience. My surgery was on March 25 and from pre op to post op the staff in the office to the nurses at Southlake hospital were all extremely kind, attentive and as Dr Van Vliet described a happy experience. I am now 2 weeks post op and I am so happy with my decision to have Dr Van Vliet perform my reduction. The weight has litterly been lifted off my shoulders. Thank you Dr V.!!!

Dr. Van Vliet performed my breast reduction surgery in November 2013. She was very easy to talk to and she answered my questions with care. She was very attentive and supportive and in the end my breasts are beautiful! She did a fantastic job and I would recommend her to anyone.
