Guthrie Patient: February 2019
Dr. V was compassionate and caring and spent so much time explaining my test results, answering questions regarding my prognosis - he was outstanding. It was difficult news to deliver, and he handled it perfectly - left me feeling calm and reassured despite the diagnosis.
Guthrie Patient: December 2018
Dr VanderMeer could not have done a better job. I would have apprenticed a little more information about the intensity of the procedure so I could better plan my recovery. Turns out there was no need to adjust my schedule following, except as planned to stay out of the water for 1 wk.
Guthrie Patient: November 2018
VanderMeer was a terrific surgeon and that's the most important part of having a great surgery--absolutely necessary but not sufficient.

Guthrie Patient: November 2017
Dr. Vandermeer is a dedicated surgeon with a strong interest in the person he is intending to operate on. I feel I'm in good hands, so to speak. I have never had surgery at Guthrie. Thus far, the experience gives me great confidence in the outcome.
