Ratings for Dr. John Van Buuren
I've been a patient of Dr. Van Buuren's for over 30 years, and I have been very happy with him for all that time. I have had some fairly serious health problems over the years (including open-heart surgery), and he always takes the time to explain them to me and to answer my questions thoroughly. I'm a fair bit older than he is and I hope he'll still be practicing for the rest of my life. I would hate to have to change to another doctor!
I have no problems with Dr. John Van Buuren, who has been my family doctors for years and is helpful and knowledgeable. He always listens to patients concerns and discusses the issues and provides the best solution at the same time. However one of the support staff at front desk (possibly European) in his office has horrible attitude , is terse in her responses and provides poor customer service every time I try and communicate with her. She impresses me deeply by never ever smiling, a poker face that's worthy of a hit-man movie, grumpy voice and unprofessional service. If she dislikes what she does in medical office environment so much then she should leave and give someone else a chance to do a better job other than upsetting the patients, who are partially responsible for her getting paid by my visits to the doctor. She deserves a zero star but the system won't allow me to do it, so I give one star for the other people working in that office doing what they are supposed to do with good customer service.
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.
