Ratings for Dr. Tim Vander Leek
After years of medicating my daughter for asthma with no improvement, it took a referral to Dr Vander Leek for allergy tests to help us realize that she didn't have asthma, it was VCD. He was through and asked all the right questions. I just wish we could have seen him years sooner to prevent the unneeded medications.
I went to Dr. Vander Leek for my daughter's multiple allergies. At first I liked him, he seemed to care. The most recent appointment I had with him he was very rude and told me I was making him do useless tests on my daughter because he already knew if she had allergies or not. I have not been back to see him. He doesn't have the greatest people skills.
Amazing!!! He is a great listener to all our concerns and questions as parents of a child with multiple allergies. He is very patient and takes his time with us. I never feel like I'm being rushed. My daughter is 5 and is very comfortable with him.
I have had the same experience with Dr. Vander Leek. He is condescending. Very knowledgeable, but he is looking to lecture you. He does not listen. My concerns were not addressed and he implied that we didn't know how to take medication properly because the pharmacy had not entered how many time the prescription had been filled on Netcare. Brutal
I have previously left a positive comment for Dr. VanderLeek but have since been talked down too when he stated that I did not follow his directions when in fact I did. It was humiliating. Prior to this, my experience with him was great. I'll go back again but I am looking into moving to a new pediatric allergist.
Dr. Vander Leek is the most knowledgeable doctor i have ever met. He was extremely helpful with my 3 year olds asthma, allergies, and eczema. For the parents that are questioning his reasons for the food challenge... My sons prick tests and blood tests all come back that he is allergic to eggs, milk, soy, peanuts and wheat. I agreed to the food challenge, and today my son is eating all the foods that his blood tests showed he was allergic too. When he was a baby, we would have reactions to these foods, but if i didnt agree to the challenge he would not be eating this foods today and i would be still living in fear over an allergy i thought still existed. This is proof that blood tests are not correct. Thank you Dr. Vander Leek.
I find myself being very fortunate to have Dr. Vander Leek as my daughters allergist. He seems very knowledgeable and took all my questions and concerns in account and explained to me what was going on in a very easy to understand and helpful manner. After the initial consultation I feel at ease knowing that my daughter is in good hands and will be treated properly from a very capable doctor.
