Verified Patient Reviews
This was my first visit with this doctor and he was very helpful, patient, knowledgeable and reassuring with all my questions and concerns about my liver and gallbladder recent test results.
Very easy to talk to and clear about the plan and next steps for treatment.
He was very social and wanted to get to the root of the problem rather than band-aid fix it. Much appreciated for listening and understanding the issue.
Definitely the BEST Dr. I have ever visited!! Takes the time to listen and problem solve!!!!
I really like Dr. van den Broek. He's a great listener, and is good at explaining things.
