Dr Vanbiber has been my primary care physician for 15 years now and he’s awesome - easy to talk to and he takes time and follows through on his patients. I’ve moved to Austin several months ago and still go toHouston for any appointments...I’m sure I’ll have to eventually get a primary care doctor in Austin one day, but for now I’ll continue to drive to Houston to see Dr Vanbiber.

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 took his time. He didn't try to hurry out to another patient like most doctors do. He asked if I had any questions or concerns. I was in and out within an hour. I've been to other offices and it's a 2 hour visit.
