Ratings for Dr. Bert Van Donkersgoed
I have been a client since 2006. I am a personal Trainer and therefore fairly fit and healthy. I don't need to see a Dr very often as I live a healthy lifestyle. HOWEVER, my Dr moved and when they did, just because I hadn't been in for 2years they DROPPED my file! Dropped me as a client?!?! So let me get this right. Because I'm healthy and take care of myself I get dropped?? Where is the responsibility? Integrity?
I have only been visiting Dr. Bert for about a year. He is my Dad's GP. I have been to many appointments with Dr. Bert and my Dad. I would highly recommend his services. He is punctual, compassionate and caring. I would like to switch from my own GP to his practise.
My mom and Dad have been seeing Dr. Bert for approx. 8 years. They have had some unfortunate experiences: my Mom fractured her left hip and it healed improperly and now she has difficulty walking and has severe knee pain; Dad recently had pneumonia,was on antibiotics, had a follow-up visit and the Dr. did not listen to his lungs or send him for a chest x-ray (my Dad has lung cancer and emphysema). My Mom is 82 and my Dad is 84; when they have their appts he types on his computer the whole time and they don't feel very cared for. Mom and Dad call him a dispatcher because he doesn't provide any hands on care. I must say though that tests get done quickly and they are specialists very quickly; for that I am truly thankful.
Dr Bert goes far & beyond to give exceptional care to his patients. He is caring, insightful and isn't afraid to send you to a specialist! Our last MD had the "god" complex, always attempted to know everything. We are so fortunate to have Dr Bert as our primary MD! He is the best Doctor we have ever had!
I'm a long time patient of Dr. Bert. I've found that he is punctual with the odd exception usually within at most 15 minutes. But if it were me that he had to spend extra time with because of a medical issue I would prefer that he did that than rush me out the door. He has good bedside manners and is knowledgeable. Always, willing to explain in terms that are understandable. He will refer you to a specialist if he feels it is needed. I'm very pleased with him and would be happy to recommend him.
I have been seeing Dr Bert for eight years and he has helped me through several medical issues. He is always prepared to refer you to a specialist if he thinks that's the right course of action but is also great any diagnosing many things and providing a good solution. Very pleased he is my doctor
