Dr Vandevoorde is wonderful. He is very caring towards Ambrose. He always spends a lot of time with us to make sure all our questions are answered and that we are all on the same page regarding his care.

*Dr. Vandervoorde is one of the kindest and most caring doctors that I've experienced. He takes time and listens. My daughter is terrified of doctors and he is the first that she has felt comfortable with.

*Dr. Vanderoorde was incredibly good with my special needs son. He included him in his care; instead of talking ABOUT him, *Dr. Vanderoorde talked TO him. An amazing doctor!

Dr. Vandevoorde iis compassionate and empathetic and absolutely amazing with my child. We love Vandy and his care from Dr. Vandevoorde was above and beyond. You can tell he truly cares and listens to not just the parent but also pulled my son into the conversation and asked him questions which made my son feel validated as much as it did me. We can't say enough great things about his care. He saved my sons life almost 5 years ago and we are back with him where my son belongs after his transplant of over 14 months. It was like coming home to see him again. We could not be more happier than to have him as our sons provider.
