The front office staff was friendly and informative.The wait time before proceeding to an examination room was brief, and the wait time for Dr Van Dinter was minimal. Since Dr. Van Dinter, is familiar with my health history he was time efficient in assessing my condition, reviewing my medications, prescription discussion, and explaining certain changes that he recommends.

I always appreciate how much detail Dr. VanDinter covers when I go for a visit. He is always polite, comes across as interested in my problems and always offers solutions. He also shows me the information he has in his laptop about me and does not try to hide anything. He also makes recommendations on my care and shows concern for other issues that some of my other physicians are handling.

It was nice that the Doctor answered my questions in the portal himself and made sure to address all of my concerns during my office visit. I never felt rushed during my visit and had the feeling the Doctor was going to stay until I had no other concerns or questions.

I've seen quite a few specialists in the past few years. Dr. Van Dinter has by far been the most attentive, knowledgeable, friendly and helpful physician of them all. He explains medical information well and is so reasonable when discussing options. He treats my daughter, and husband as well. He is polite and kind. Simply put, he excels in every way.

He has become an EXTREMELY VALUABLE part of my care team. Both he and his CNP have become very knowledgeable about my rare condition, Cyclical Vomiting Syndrome. They have educated themselves and me on the most successful medical medication regimen to ensure the best outcome for me. With the goal of reducing hospital stays and severity of symptoms.
