dr vandevoorde was my favorite doctor while I was in the hospital after my son was born and I was so happy the follow up visit was with him. he genuinely cared for my son and even asked me how I was doing each time he saw me. he always spoke openly and honestly about what his thoughts were on my son and the tests and gave me real peace of mind, he was the only dr who I felt like really talked to me as a mother and listened to me. I would recommend him to everyone
