I love love love Dr. VanWagner. I have total confidence in her recommendations. She is easy to talk to, explains in detail and always looks ahead. Her nurse, Lindsay, is also the greatest. Both of them answer emails promptly and have easily transitioned to a healthcare program that is both online an in-person.

She saved my life. She is more than just a physician, she is an integral part of my life in many ways. She treats her patients like people, holds conversations about topics other than my personal health and remembers things about me as a person. Not many doctors focus on the relationship with their patients. I am always excited to visit with her because I know she will always be my advocate and partner in my own health plan.

Dr VanWagner was attentive to me, asked me questions about reasons for my visit, listened carefully to my responses, provided very thorough and easy-to-understand explanations of some symptoms I was displaying. She followed up promptly the next day on MyChart with notes on some labs she had ordered for me. All in all, a lovely, very professional and engaged physician and an overall positive experience.
