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.
Guthrie Patient: June 2017
Wonderful doctor.
