Dr. Van Hauen has been my primary care provider for many years. She is thorough and considerate above all. Two very important characteristics to me. Her care and treatment recommendations are always well thought out and she is very good about explaining the positive and negative sides of her diagnosis thoughts. She is a provider that I believe truly cares about her patients and their well-being. Great provider!

Dr. Van Hauen was wonderful. I went in just to establish care with her and she was thorough in answering my questions and concerns and offered a multitude of treatment options to pursue.

I had a great experience today as I always have with Dr. Van Hauen and her team. I have never felt so cared for as I do when I come to the doctor. She genuinely puts her patience first and does not give up in finding the best treatment plans. I moved out of town and still will never change primary care doctors because I know how special it is to have someone who genuinely cares and makes the doctors office a safe space. She is by far the best doctor I have ever seen and am so grateful for what she has done and continues to do for my health. Thanks to her I’m not nervous or hesitant to go to the doctor.
