Doctor Van Essen is a great doctor. He is Knowledgeable and wise along with being compassionate and kind. I will be forever grateful to him. I appreciate him and wish that there was a way that I could repay him for everything that he has done for me.

Jane B.

I am thankful I landed in the care of Dr. Van Essen. First, he worked with his team to schedule my surgery as soon as possible.  Second, he was thorough in regard to my condition and what to expect after surgery.  Third, he personally contacted my husband via phone several times before and after surgery as my husband was unable to be with me during my hospital stay.  Wow!   Fourth, Chelsea, his nurse scheduled blood work and was quick to answer my questions and/or forward concerns to the doctor.  I so appreciate such kind and expert care.  Thank you.
