Dr. Desmond Van Jaarsveldt's Ratings
My wife and I really like Dr. Van. He's a great doctor and cares about his patients. He's always happy to see us and when we leave his office, we know we've been taken cared of really good. He is a well mannered and humorous doctor. Humor is a good medicine and Dr. Van uses it all the time. We first had him for several years at the Lakewood clinic when we lived in Southdale. When we moved into Richmond West, we travelled the extra distance to still see him. We are now glad that he has opened his new clinic on Pembina Highway, just a few minutes from our place. As long as Dr. Van continues to practice medicine, my wife and I will continue to see him.
Now this is a doctor!!! I lucked out when I went to a walk-in clinic and got an appointment with him. That was 12 years ago and since then I have had many health issues related to growing older. There has never been a visit that my needs were not met and exceeded. Great sense of humour, the most knowledgeable doctor I have ever had, has feeling for his patient, AND ALWAYS, ALWAYS FOLLOWS UP. I would never change doctors and I really don't mind the wait. I wish some of him could rub off on other doctors I have had over the years.
I first met Dr Van as a walk-in patient over a decade ago and was immediately impressed by his friendly manner....pleased that he has his own clinic and although it is further from my home, I wouldn't dream of having anyone else as my family doctor. He is thorough and always answers my queries and concerns with the utmost respect and consideration. He cares deeply for all of his patients and his "regulars" always get a big hug or handshake when they leave his office. Truly a gifted physician!
Dr. Van is the best doctor one can ask for. My husband and I have recently moved to another province, and each time we are asked "What is the one thing you miss most from Winnipeg?" we always answer "Dr. Van!" He is extremely knowledgeable, thorough, and will always address all of your concerns. At the same time, he has a great sense of humor and he knows how to lower your stress levels by just laughing about it all. He is not always on time, but he is so much worth the wait. He is just an incredible doctor and person.
Dr. Van is a wonderful doctor who takes the time that is necessary to address his patients' needs. He is kind and considerate- really like an old fashioned doctor. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a family doctor.
Dr. Van is one of the best doctors I have ever had. Caring, considerate, thorough, friendly, comfortable, compassionate. He always listens, asks questions, answers, explains and makes sure you understand. His staff will do what they can to slide you in if something urgent arises. I did have to be fair and say he is not always punctual. This can be tough sometimes waiting, but he never rushes anyone. He is more than worth the wait. If you prefer to know what is going on with your health, leaving feeling cared for, like someone has your back, Dr. Van is your man. :) Perfect bedside manner to ensure you trust and never feel like a number. No matter how sick I am, after seeing him I already feel better. Amazing human being.
