SHC Patient, Oct 2019

SHC Patient, Oct 2019

I have so much confidence in Dr. Van Wert.

SHC Patient, Sep 2019

Would like the doctor spent more time talking and listening while looking at me than spending time on the computer, reviewing and entering notes while I spoke. Having said that, I appreciate the accommodation he made to add an early appointment to see me and the special arrangement he made for me to schedule a bronchoscopy. He also spoke to the insurance carrier directly to clarify pre-authorization and followed up with me while he was travelling and on the weekend via the phone.

SHC Patient, Aug 2019

Dr. VanWert has been treating me for 5 yrs. His care is exceptional and he genuinely cares about me.

Great listener and very attentive.

SHC Patient, May 2019

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

I have much confidence in my provider's knowledge - and appreciate his kindness.

Lung cancer isn't to be taken lightly. It stressed me out. However, Angela and Dr. Barry put me at ease through their information and being realistic.

Very well attended.

SHC Patient, Dec 2017

If I was to have to have any surgery, Dr. Van Wert IS MY GUY, no one else!!

Very good provider and knowledgeable.

SHC Patient, Aug 2016

Dr. Van Wert is fantastic. He explains absolutely everything in a very clear manner. He will answer & explain everything I ask. He responds quickly when I write him. He is on my top 2 or 3 drs. ever & I've gone to too many.

SHC Patient, Jul 2016

Dr. Van Wert has been providing EXCELLENT care to me regularly for over a year.

SHC Patient, Jun 2016

The doctor keeps looking at the computer and typing for his note the whole visit. Don't know about patient's problem. Patient has to wait for him to finish his progress note and then he tell the patients about the plan. Really bad experience. Wish we can switch the doctor.

SHC Patient, Jun 2016

I appreciate that the doctor took time to explain to me the medications I take and the benefits of taking them. I am a head person and no one had ever explained my allergy meds to me.

SHC Patient, May 2016

I was concerned about the frequency of CAT scans required & the exposure to radiation. He took the time to listen to my concerns & gave me the info needed to allay my fears.

SHC Patient, Apr 2016

Very professional, very thoughtful!!!

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

Dr. Van Wert was impressive in that he didn't rush through my visit as I expected.

I feel very fortunate to get to see Dr. Van Wert.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

Good experience.

Dr. was very helpful & offered an arrangement.
