Ratings for Dr. Debra Van Aggelen
Dr. Van Aggelen always completely demeaned any of my concerns. You can be sure to wait at least 45 minutes after your appointment time. I had an ongoing medical issue, and told her I wanted to try an IUD. She told me this would just make it worse. and to just go on a stronger dose of birth control, which I had explicitly said I didn't want to do. Frustrated, I went to another doctor who said an IUD would help me, did the procedure, and it improved my health exponentially. When Van Aggelen put me on antibiotics, she didn't suggest probiotics to maintain gut health - one of my friends had to tell me instead. Even though I said I didn't want to be on them too long she just prescribed me more. There were countless other issues where her lack of interest in my health was astounding. The new Dr. also said my iron stores were low and prescribed me supplements (even my friend predicted the same thing!) and yet Van Aggelen never thought of this. I constantly left her office feeling disappointed and like I was doomed to suffer the same issues forever.
I have been seeing Dr Van Aggelen for over 20 years and she is outstanding. She is extremely capable, knowledgeable and respectful. She does sometimes run late but that is because she takes the time to be thorough and answer questions/explain results. I have never felt rushed or unimportant with her. Her assistant, Theresa is wonderful too!!
Knowledgeable, takes times to listen you you, which is why she sometimes runs behind, will refer you when needed, can get an appt when you need it often the same day, been with her for 10 years and very happy with her as our family GP. Her MOA Teresa is excellent organised and accommodating
Fabulous and Amazing Doctor!!!! She is so kind, caring, helpful, understanding and compassionate. She is on top of everything. She takes the time to get to know you and she is a great listener. She ensures that all diagnostic tests and treatments are done properly and promptly. She is excellent with follow-up as well. Her Office Assistant Teresa is the best and sweetest person ever. Teresa is very organized, detailed and ensures follow-up is prompt. Teresa is very friendly, welcoming, understanding and always puts the patients as first priority. Best Doctor and Assistant Ever!!!! If I could give higher than a 5 rating I would as they both do so much more.
I have always found Dr. Van Aggelan compassionate, knowledgeable, friendly and listens well. She constantly updates her medical knowledge through conferences, etc. and shares that information with the patient. She is often a bit behind, however it is so she doesn't have to turn patients away in time of need. I have always been treated with the best knowledge, care, referrals, treatments, prescriptions, etc., needed. I would like to add that Teresa is an amazing receptionist and person!
