Dr Van is a good doctor when you can actually get in to see him. My last appointment was scheduled for 2:00 pm and knowing he is always behind schedule I asked what time to return. The receptionist said 3:00 pm. I returned promptly then and left at 4:15 without even seeing him! I couldn't wait any longer. I have since changed doctors.

He is an amazing doctor who is never afraid to share his personal opinion. Trusts a mothers instinct and doesn’t try to talk you out of something. Amazing guy!

He was great until I got seriously sick. If you're generally healthy or just need symptom management, he's a great friendly doctor. If you need someone to pay attention and help you find both the problem and solutions to the problem, maybe find a different doctor. I only got sicker under his care and he didn't do anything for me or seem concerned enough to really investigate.

I love dr van but his staff is terrible. I have called over 20 times and not been able to get through to book a follow up appt. The receptionists are rude and never friendly.

I have been with Dr. Van since shortly after he started at Lakewood Medical. He gets to know his patients which helps to treat issues not just symptoms. He is honest when it comes to recommendations, will say things that people may not want to hear, but need to, but all in a way that is caring not arrogant or condescending . If you want a doctor that pushes medications, he is not your man. If you want a doctor that will help you, he is your man. If you want quick service, you are not going to find it with him. They have a wonderful app that saves you waiting room time.

Dr Van may take extra time to get to you, but when he is with you, you are his only priority and focus! He will help you with respect dignity and a few laughs! He has been my doctor for at least 11 years and is now my baby boys doctor! I could never thank him enough or show enough appreciating for such an amazing doctor! He and his wife (who is a dentist) are the most amazing people!

There are several good things about Dr Van such as pleasant manor and communicating results, but there are a few things which are a red flag when it comes to health. The reviewer who characterised him as rushed and indifferent is right on the button; I could add to this sometimes flippant. Getting a second opinion after seeing him was the best thing I ever did. Having a friendly Doctor is always a good thing but once you look past that it is really more important for your Doctor to be focussed, observant, and alert.
