22/04/14 1 2 1 1 Dr vanzandt delivered my son over ten years ago and I have a lot of residual problems and regrets since I let her be my physician to birth my son. I suffered a fourth degree perineal tear that she did as she told my family so long ago that her office didn't cut anymore. I accessed my records from my old attorney because at the time of my pregnancy I had a spinal injury and was in the middle of a lawsuit for medical care. I found that she never documented and worst yet my son is showing signs of anoxic frontal lobe damage which his physician say show around puberty-for when the hospital never documented my adverse reaction to pitocin because apparently the nurse never told her while my son suffered over 30 minutes of decelerated heart rate in the thirties. We'll guess what statue has run out and since it was not documented it didn't happen. I want my story out there so others to know unlike me to protect new moms. I've had two vaginal reconstructs over the last 4 years to repair.  Respond

02/11/13 5 5 5 5 This physician TRULY CARES about women's health. She spends a long time with the patients. She tries a MINIMALIST approach before throwing heavy drugs and lots of tests at the patient. She is willing to try NATURAL THERAPIES in combination with traditional medicine. Her exam rooms were clean, private. Her staff was organized and prompt. She is truly a professional and TRULY tries to do what is right for her patients. Two thumbs up!  Respond

11/10/11 4 4 5 5 Dr. VanZandt is excellent. I did wait to see her, but was asked if she could see another patient first because she needed to spend time with me. She explained my procedure carefully and professionally. I would recommend her to any woman looking for an experienced, caring OBGYN.

24/06/10 2 1 3 3 I had to wait over an hour to see her and then she made me feel rushed. She only works on Tuesdays at the Seminole office. She expected me to wait until week 20 to get an ultrasound which I assume was because she has too many patients and doesn't have the time. Needless to say, i switched OBs.

21/08/08 5 5 5 5 Dr. VanZandt has been my ob/gyn for over 15 yrs. She delivered both of my sons and is the most caring doctor ever. I never feel rushed. I was having trouble getting pregnant and, after she had a battery of tests done, sent me to a reproductive endocrinologist. The infertility dr. said she loves getting patients from Dr. VZ because she is so thorough. I feel the same way. Both of my pregnancies were high risk and she was informed every step of the way from the high risk OB. With my 2nd delivery I experienced life threatning complications and needed an emergency Csection. Before I was put under she asked what I would like her to tell my son, since I would be asleep. It had been 3 hrs. since the delivery and I had not seen him yet and she got on the phone and made them bring him to me. She will be my dr. until the end of time. I love, love, love her and have recommended many friends to her.
