I feel so very fortunate to have a doctor like Dr. Vanbiber. He's always so professional and down to earth. I feel like I can talk to him about just anything - not that I would take that much of histime. Most importantly, he resolves the issue, so I don't have to go back a 2nd time. Also, his assistant, Jennifer, is great too.

Dr. Vanbiber’ and his staff were very accommodating. I felt no pressure. Everyone was very easy to talk to and not once did I feel as if I was “Just a number” as I’ve experienced in other facilities. Dr. Vanbiber’s attentionto my concerns made me feel welcome. And his knowledge of how to address said concerns made me feel at ease.

He made my med management transition quick andeasy. He never seemed rushed and thoroughly listened to all of my concerns and issues. Would definitely recommend and will continue seeing him as my primary provider.
