I have been seeing Dr. Vanheerden for 8 years now. The B E S T woman doctor I have ever seen ! She researches if she does not know the answer and sends for any and all tests 'just to be sure'. She even called me once hours after an appointment to clarify something I had said in my earlier appointment. That's caring !

The staff are amazing, very friendly and sweet - unfortunately they aren't the ones that are licensed to help you. Dr. Van Heerden does not have a very good bedside manor and is judgmental. She does not dig deeper into a problem, search for answers. If she does not know an answer she does not reach out to other colleagues for help in ways of referrals or etc. Imaging, tests... etc. I have been her patient for a while and was hoping it would get better.

Dr Van Heerden saw me when my family dr, Dr du Toit was away. She was very kind and compassionate and listened in detail to my concerns. I would highly recommend her.

Dr. Van Heerden is a wonderful doctor. I have lived all over Alberta and have had numerous family doctors. She is by far my favourite. I have even moved quite a distance from Leduc, but continue to drive the distance to see her. Any issues I have had she was quick to send me for blood work, or x-rays, just to be sure. Dr. Van Heerden was great with both of my pregnancies for the first couple of months until I was referred to a Obgyn. When I did have a concern, I was surprised to actually get a phone call from her, informing me of my results. Overall, a kind, funny, patient, knowledgeable family doctor.

I find her to be very rough and rude in her approach. She seems to ignore my concerns.

I went to Dr. Van Heerden with my newborn and she was not helpful with my breastfeeding issues. Later, when my child was 18 months, we went in for an appointment and I was nursing her. When she came in the room, she had a look of shock and judgement and asked why I was still breastfeeding. "Why? For comfort?" I didn't appreciate her judgement considering extended breastfeeding is being so heavily encouraged by Health Canada. I've encountered other issues with her understanding breastfeeding, plus they display lots of advertisements and samples for formula, which I've heard doctor's offices aren't allowed to do. Other than the misinformation she gives about breastfeeding, she's a nice doctor.

Amazing Doctor. I've seen many doctors, but I will be sticking with her. She is knowledgeable, caring, and willing to answer questions. If she is unsure of something, she lets you know and takes some time to do research. Great Doctor and great person.
