Great team approach for surgery.

Dr. Van Acker was very thorough and took the time to explain what was wrong and how to treat it. I appreciate her time and her genuine attitude that showed she cared. You don’t find that very much this day and age. I will be recommending her to anyone who needs this type of care. I hope she sticks around a while!
