Ratings for Dr. Steven C. VanNoord
My son has been his patient for 17 years ( since he was 3 months old) our daughter 14 yrs. my husband 6 and myself 2. He has always been professional . Never doubted his ability to diagnose. He has a quiet calm bedside manor but not pompous at all. He encourages healthy life style and doesn't over prescribe medication just to get you in and out . I have recommended him to several friends without a second thought. We drive 20 mins , past several physicians office in our town because to us he has been nothing but professional and knowledgeable .
After discovering I was allergic to a prescription I was placed on another prescription that was in the same family and wound up in the hospital over night due to a severe allergic reaction and still have scaring from the rash that developed. Please be careful and check all of your medications with another medical professional.
I had been a patient of his (mostly seeing his physician's assistant - she is great) for at least 3 years. On the occasions that I did see him, I always felt like he was a pompous jerk. You can't really blame a guy for his personality, can you? Recently, I had a fasting cholesterol test as my levels have been borderline high for years. What I got was a call from the nurse saying my total cholesterol is ###, and that the doctor said to change my diet and exercise. No advice on a daily limit of chol. intake, they just assume I live on McDonald's food I suppose. I researched the stuff on the internet and left this doctor and Metro Health in general.
This doctor has a bent towards sports medicine. If you have another ailment, then you are subject to a vagueness and 'I'm the doctor , Do as I say' attitude. I asked for a layman term for the condition, I did not understand and asked for another opinion which was denied!! There are several other medical conditions involved and they were not satisfactorily addressed. Using a politicly correct term, he is ineffective. Using a layman term: he is a QUACK
