Doctor Van lacks crucial knowledge required for her field. She asks her patients to choose their own medication. After having one abnormal pap smear she told me I had HPV (even though the HPV test she conducted was negative) and that either I or my husband must have had many sexual partners. In my opinion, that's very unprofessional and inappropriate. She never told me I did not have HPV and she never told me about the other several possibilities that would cause an abnormal pap smear. I had to wait two months panicking until I met with an OBGYN who said an abnormal pap smear is not all that uncommon.

Was not able to speak to her recently? Missed messages between clerk and doctor. Ended up urgent care in Cumberland which helped me a great deal. I need a full time doctor.

Office Staff is horrendous!!! Makes me want to find a new Dr so I don't have to deal with them. Really wish the Drs would realize how rude they are to patience and replace them. It's a shame.

I agree with the comment made before me. The staff at the widow are rude and not friendly. I wonder if Dr.Van knows this :(

Dr. Van is wonderful, but I have to agree with other comments about the office staff. I avoid calling at all cost because of the staff that answers the phone. I wish she would send her staff to some training or at the very least teach them how to deal with her patients.

Dr. Vann is a nice woman however her office is a disaster to deal with. Its impossible to get an appointment because she is physically not in the office very often (child, lincoln high school teaching, time off). It takes me several attempts for my referrals to be sent to my specialists. Another issue I have is she doesn't return calls. You'll be lucky if you get a call from a secretary who has no medical knowledge. Its very frustrating; You cant get a sick appointment or even a phone call. Im transfrering out.
