Ratings for Dr. John Van Buuren
Dr. Van Buuren was my GP from the time I was a young child until my early adult years. He was great with me until I started having serious marrital problems where he then took the side of my now ex husband (someone he had only known a very short time I might add) instead of his patient, someone he had known for many years. He really disappointed me especially at a time when I needed him most and really hurt.
Dr Van Buuren is an excellent doctor. He saved my life when I was going through a difficult time. He has been my doctor since he started at the clinic. He is very knowledgeable and will listen to you. He encourages you to lead a healthy life style but understands that is easier said then done.
He was my doctor for years (general check ups). when something showed up in a scan he failed to even tell me. He was on vacation when I came in still complaining about the pain I was having for the last year. I was advised by the attending doctor that I had to go see a specialist for a follow up of suspected cancer. Over a year later! Didn't seem to upset that he made such a huge mistake. NO appology.. I don't see him anymore.
Dr Van Buuren works from the Gain medical center a very well run, seven day a week clinic, efficient group of doctors. Your appointment is always on time. I have been a patient for many years and when I occasionally had to go, have been referred immediately to top specialists in the field. he always has time to explain things and never makes you feel rushed. he is very thorough but not a pill pusher.
This is my mother's doctor. I have heard nothing but problems from my mother. Most of the other comments on his ratings page seem fine, but it's almost like, if there is anything seriously wrong with you, out of the norm, then he just doesn't have the time, knowledge or bedside manner for you. I have told her for years to switch to another doctor and now she's in a serious health position where she can't switch, she's stuck with him. I'm sure if you're going in for a cold or flu he's fine, but throw anything else at him and he any idea what to do or say.
He is my familys only doctor and he is the BEST... Very knowledgable, very friendly, he will take all the time in the world to help you understand what he is saying, if he doesnt have an answer he WILL get one as fast as possible.. Its as if he still enjoys learning his practice because he knows all of the new meds and methods
