Dr Van has the knowledge of a doctor and much better social skills than most doctors, which is good if you want your doctor to hold your hand, but not if you want him to catch something before it becomes a problem that there is no way back from. He talks more than he listens which can be a bad thing. I do not go to a doctor for a polite and friendly chat, I want answers, I want action, good news or bad news I expect my doctor to be a doctor in a timely fashion. I don't like having to explain to other doctors why my doctor missed something because it tells me I made a bad choice.

Dr.Van is a very compassionate and caring Dr. The best I have had. Very knowledgeable and very thorough which is what is needed to ensure proper care. The downside is he tries to take on too many patients in a day. Knowing the attention he dedicates to each patient, he should a lot 15-20 minutes per appointment instead of 10. That is just not realistic. Waiting 2 hours every time I have an appointment is very difficult taking that time off work.

Dr. Van is a very good doctor but I dont understand how people can be rating anything other than a 1 star for punctuality every appt i have i am waiting at least 2 hours to get into see him...being self employed this really eats up a lot of time that I could actually be working.

Dr. Van is personable and very knowledgeable, thorough, and attentive to patient concerns. The patient queue fills up causing delays in appointment times but they have developed an app you can download to check what if any and how long the wait time is.

Dr Van is an amazing doctor, my family has been seeing him since 2001 when we moved here from Calgary. When he moved his pravtoce, we followed him, very understanding, attentive and has a great sense of humour! Love this doctor!

Dr. Van has been my GP for many years. He is a wonderful doctor. Very knowledgeable. Very compassionate and caring. I recommend him to all my family and friends. Unfortunately, he does not take new patients very often. I believe it is only family members that he will accept. Wonderful person, wonderful doctor.

He is a charming man and if I was only going to him for physicals I would be more than happy. But look around next time they stick you in Room 10. The speed of his speech is inversely proportional to the timer ticking down on the pc. I have had to go to the walk in after leaving his office where I have received a very different reaction to my symptoms. This now brings into question a lot of the things he has told me. Dr Van is a skilled doctor I just think he has too many patients and this pressure prevents him from being a fantastic doctor.

He's an amazing dr, always gives you the time you need, im always very happy leaving, I always leave feeling very positive. Getting through to the clinic on the other hand is disappointing. talking directly to his receptionist is useless as well. but he's the best doctor by far so i put up with the poor staff

Dr Van is by far the best dr i have ever seen, and i used work in the medical field seen all kinds. Dr Van is one of a kind. He is never on time bc he truly cares about his patients and goes over all their questions and options. I am totally ok with waiting bc he is so amazing! He took 2 mins with my family member and had a correct diagnosis when their own family dr had no clue or didn't care one or the other . I am happy to report patient is getting better every day bc of his extensive knowledge and the way he truly connects with his patients. I am so grateful for him bc i probably wouldn't be here! I can't say enough great things about this man! He has become part of our family! We love him and will follow him wherever he practices. You want dr like this!
