1 year post surgical for my right knee. Having some pain in it and Dr. VanEck is good. We both talked and I received quality care.

August 21, 2019

This was the first time visiting Dr. Van Eck and she was everything and more than I expected. She explained every scenario for my bad shoulder and gave me choices that would be best for me. She also described the recovery process and how, if I did the surgery, it may also help some other areas of pain elsewhere.
