08/10/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Van Arsdale is the best doctor I've ever had. He was very caring through my miscarriage, and took such good care of me when I had my little boy. He made sure that my baby was born safe and healthy, and he was extremely responsive to any concerns that I had. I would recommend him to anyone.

03/07/12 5 5 5 5 I've been a patient of Dr Van Arsdale since 1984. He is absolutely the best! He is very attentive to one's questions and concerns both as an obstetrician and a gynecologist. Dr. Van Arsdale delivered by daughter in 1984 and he still asks about her, now that she is a new mom. His staff is wonderful. I recently moved out of state and one of my biggest concerns was losing this fine medical professional. I would recommend him to any woman, for any of your OB-GYN issues.  Respond

11/11/09 5 5 5 5 I have been a patient of Dr. VA since 1991. About 10 yrs ago when I was about 32, I became very sick. Doctors did not know what was wrong with me. Dr. VA finally properly diagnosed me with premature ovarian failure. He is a WONDERFUL man and amazing doctor. He delivered my son 13 years ago. It is a pain for me to go downtown to see him now that I live in far NW 'burbs....but there is no other doctor I would ever see. He is fantastic.  Respond

19/08/09 5 5 5 5 Dr. VanArsdale is the MOST compassionte doctor I ever had. I have been with him for 16 wonderful years. Gave birth to my first daughter and then gave birth with my twins. My husband and I were challegned before we got pregnant with our twins but Dr. VanArsdale was right by our side. He and the fertility specialist got us pregnant and took very good care of me & the twins for the 39 weeks that I carried them. The utmost fabulous doctor.

20/04/09 5 5 5 5 Dr. Van Arsdale is the best doctor. I have spent a lot of time with him due to a very serious pregnancy complication. He was always willing to spend as much time with me as I wanted/needed. I truely believe that my daughter and I are healthy today because of his skills as a doctor and a surgeon. Plus, he is always on time.

10/11/08 5 5 5 5 Dr. Van Arsdale is the best doctor I have ever had. I had a very difficult pregnancy that almost failed. He was encouraging and very positive. We had a very healthy baby boy via c-section and he was by my side through the whole process. Can not say enough nice things about him.

27/04/05 5 5 5 Dr. VanArsdale is fantastic and so is his staff. I went to him for both of my pregnancies and still go to him for my checkups. I travel about 15 miles to see him because he is the best. When you have an appointment you will usually get in pretty close to that time and when he is really busy it doesn't show when you get to the exam room. He takes his time to make sure you understand everything and answers all your questions. His staff is very friendly and seems to remember you personally right after your first visit. They usually remember your first name and will pull your chart when they see you enter the door. I have nothing but good to say about this office very clean and well kept. Overall rating A+++++. The hospital that they are affiliated with is one of the best in the city. I will keep this Dr. for as long as I can, you don't find people like these very often.
