I have been seeing this doctor for years. When I have problems with other doctors specialist, he will help me read reports they didn't help me with. He always cares about my health he always has time to listen. And hisnurse is fantastic. This is one of the best doctors I have known in my lifetime and I'm over 60

For the simple blood test, I went there 2 times. one time the nurse was not there and the day after she was running late and they send me to another center to have a blood test. Just waisting my timea lot and not feeling better. I have to go to another doctor.

Dr Vanbiber has been my doctor since 2007. I still think he is great. I think his office hours can be a bit more limited than other practices and that is probably because he has been a doctor for a LONGtime and wants to take it easy now. Other than that, he’s pretty great and the entire staff in that office who by the way have been with him for many years too!. I would not recommend any other doctor

It's been quite some time that I visited a new doctor and felt so at ease on the very first visit. The staff were very welcoming and attentive. The assistant who saw me prior to the doctor answered questions and mademe feel as if I was the only patient there. Dr. Vanbiber actually sat and conversated with me about my concerns. He LISTENED and didn't bark a diagnosis at me. He trusted me as his patient and we discussed my fears and planned my treatment together. Not many providers do this anymore. Thank you Dr. Vanbiber and team. I have a new PCP!!!!!!!!!!!

Dr Russell is a cool and down to earth person. My physicals was like a nice friendly discussion and Doctor was very patient answering my questions. The front desk staff and Nurse were awesome. The lady who collected blood did agreat job as there was NO pain and She did it very quickly - yes less than a minute.
