Dr. Van Vreede is one of the best! He is very thorough and a compassionate doctor. My husband was diagnosed with a skincancer and under Dr Vanvreede’s care had a very successful outcome as he detected it early on. Very grateful we have him as our dermatologist.
Great dermatologist office! Very professional and friendly staff. The treatment that was prescribed was just what I needed. Way better than past dermatologists I’ve had experiences with.
My husband and I both saw Dr. VanVreede and were very impressed with his professionalism, friendly personality and thorough examination. After a biopsy, my husband was advised he needed to see Dr. Leithhauser for a MOHS procedure. Dr. Leithhauser was very kind, explaining in detail the procedure and addressing our questions and concerns. We our extremely fortunate to have physicians of this caliber in Traverse City and they, as well as their entire staff, are impressive in this day and age of modern medicine. They strive to make you feel as though you are their only and most important patient and treat you like a long time friend. Highly recommend Dr. VanVreede!
I’ve lived in South Lyon for many years, its so nice to have options in the area and so close by! I think Dr. Van Vreede is one of the best Dermatologists there is, and believe me I have seen many.
I’ve struggled with skin problems for so long and couldn’t find an experienced dermatologist who would listen to my concerns. I am so glad we have Dr. Van Vreede so close to home, he is friendly and competent. My kids and I will be coming back!
