sandra is thorough and very carring

May 30, 2016

No bad experience at all. Excellent experience always.

May 09, 2016

Excellent visit. But we didn't talk about follow up.

May 03, 2016

I was very happy with her, one of my favorite doctors I've been to.

April 17, 2016

communication between physician AND pharmacy was horrible.

April 17, 2016

Dr VanLeuven is the best!

April 10, 2016

Dr. Van Leuvan is a great doctor with a great reputation in this Park City community!

April 09, 2016

The main issue I had was after waiting for three months, I had a list of 5-6 concerns plus the doctor asked me several questions so it took time. Towards the end, I told the doctor I had two more questions and she said, "I only have so much time." She did let me ask the questions but as a patient, I shut down. I felt stupid. I felt like I couldn't confide in or ask questions. Its an uncomfortable position to be in as a patient. Especially after waiting so long to see a Doctor who came highly recommended. I was disappointed.

March 31, 2016

Like I said before, my Dr is Fabulous! Great experience

March 29, 2016

I LOVE Dr. Van Leuven! She is amazing. That day there was a Dr. in training with her. I didn't mind having him join the appointment, but it was a bit uncomfortable discussing my very personal issues with him. I should have asked to see her alone for part of the time, but understood they were running a bit behind schedule and I didn't want to make it worse.

March 29, 2016

Dr Van Leuven is a super care provider. You are fortunate to have her on staff.

March 20, 2016

Listens to concerns,excellent diagnostician,takes time to consider reason for visit. Extremely capable. sensitive to needs of patients

March 19, 2016

When I only see her on an annual basis, the time allotted for the appointment is too short and as a result I feel rushed through my questions/concerns and our ability to address them together adequately.

March 19, 2016

I love Dr. Van Leuven. She has always been exactly what I expect from a Primary Care Physician

March 12, 2016

I'm referring to the doctor here. She is excellent in every way and I have recommended her to everyone!! Unfortunately, there is never enough time in the appointment to cover everything and it always seems rushed. I know this is not the Dr.'s fault but it would be great to have more time. Dr. VanLeuven is the best and I'm so thankful to have her as my primary doctor. She is so professional and I feel that my health is taken care of to the highest degree. Thank you!!

March 06, 2016

Dr. Van Leuven is fanastic!

March 01, 2016

I have recommended her to friends but she is full

February 27, 2016

Dr. VanLeuven is always knowledgeable, helpful and thorough.

February 26, 2016

Love my Dr. I do have some medical issues and she has always been super supportive and helpful when I needed something or more information

February 23, 2016

I'm very pleased that I chose Dr. Van Leuven as my primary physician.

February 20, 2016

This was my first visit with Dr. Vanleuvan. She was Professional, Thorough and Efficient.

February 17, 2016

Dr. van Leuven, as always, went beyond what I would have expected.

February 17, 2016

I don't want to many people to know how good Van Leuven is as it already hard to get into seeing her:)

February 08, 2016

Dr. V is the best.

February 02, 2016

I always know my care is her priority.

January 30, 2016

Sandra was great! I was a complicated patient with a lot of things to take care of but she was very knowledgeable and understanding and explained everything as she went along

January 25, 2016

Have loved Dr. Sandra for years.

January 22, 2016

Dr. Van Leuven is absolutely incredible! She made my appointment seem like a normal conversation between friends which helped me to feel comfortable addressing any of the health concerns that I had.

January 16, 2016

She is exceptional!

January 12, 2016

As usual Dr. VanLeuven made me feel like I was her most important patient. The care, concern, sympathy, & patience she showed was exemplary!

January 12, 2016

Sandra is easily the best Dr I have ever had. She is thorough and caring.

January 12, 2016

Dr. van Leuven is the best primary care physician I have ever had over the 74 years of my existence.

January 12, 2016

Supportive, thorough, nonjudgmental

January 11, 2016

Sandra van Leuven is, hands down, the finest primary care doctor I and my wife have ever had. She is thorough and pleasant and very solicitous of our well being in all ways. But, I don't like her much, hah, hah.

January 11, 2016

Dr Van Leuven listens carefully, never makes you feel rushed. Excellent diagnostician. Just wish her schedule was not so packed.

January 09, 2016

I have always felt very comfortable during my visit with Dr. VanLeuven. She takes time and I do not feel rushed.

January 09, 2016

best Doc and Doc visit I've ever had

January 07, 2016

Maybe the days of a PCP asking the simple question, "How are you doing?" is a thing of the past. There was minimal eye contact given and no questions about my concerns. Instead she began typing on the computer while focused on the screen and dovetailed the visit based on what I told her nursing assistant. Also, she insisted that a med would react with my body in a certain way when I know exactly how I react to it, but she discounted my view by explaining her recent training and understanding of timelines. She did not acknowledge that perhaps my body does not fit those protocols. In my opinion, this is certainly possible. I do appreciate Dr. Van Leuven's busy schedule and I am grateful for her expertise and compassionate demeanor I have experienced in the past, but this was not a satisfying visit. I was asked electronically some questions prior to my visit, but she did not even review these concerns with me, especially my concerns about sleep problems.

January 07, 2016

yearly physical. Always feel Dr covers everything well.

January 06, 2016

Sandra is fantastic

December 22, 2015

I received a more through explanation than I had before. I often get little or no feedback from physians. Dr. Van Leuvan took the time to explain things about thyroid testing we hadn't talked about before and my confidence in her care went up. I hadn't talked to her about the things I knew about thyroid testing, and when I did, she realized I had some questions, and we talked. I hate it when Drs assume all I want is to be taken care of. I want to understand and be involved in my health care! Dr. Van Lieuvan and I haven't always clicked concerning my needs, but she's always been willing to talk.

December 16, 2015

Sandy has been my physician for almost 12 years for a reason! She always goes above and beyond to provide exceptional care. I am always grateful to have her as my physician.

December 13, 2015

I really would like to recommend Dr. VanLeuvan; however, feel that she has too many patients when trying to make an appointment as an existing patient; therefore, I hesitate as do many of her other patients. Maybe you could reduce the amount of new patients.

November 24, 2015

Could not ask for a better doctor. She never makes you feel rushed, answers all questions and is willing to consider other alternatives to current protocol.

November 22, 2015

Dr Van Leuven is the best! She demonstrate a high degree of professionalism and interest while making you feel comfortable. She gives advice/treatment that is clearly understood.

November 10, 2015

I LOVE Dr VanLeuven!!!

November 08, 2015

Dr Van Leuven is great. I am thrilled to have found her and I hope that she stays at Redstone. The last two providers I had seen have moved on which is disappointing.

November 01, 2015

good

October 31, 2015

Dr. Van Leuwen is the best physician I ever had.

October 26, 2015

Dr VL is a great Doctor which is why I tracked her down to the Redstone clinic. You are lucky to have her.

October 18, 2015

my doctor is the best

October 04, 2015

I recommend this practitioner all the time. The best doctor and clinic experiences I've ever had.

October 02, 2015

She sent me to get physical therapy on my knee. At the pt clinic they said I needed an MRI I left myDr a message asking her for an MRI. She made me come in again to look at my knee a second time with no regard to cost to me. She sent me for an MRI I think she should have done that in the first place, Pt made my knee worse. Or given me a referral to a knee specialist ASAP. Which I will be seeing Friday at 9am. My results were bad and I feel like I wasted a lot of time getting to where I should be with this injury.

September 27, 2015

Dr. Van Leuven is the best primary physician I have seen in 40+ years. I have recommended her to 4 friends already.

September 24, 2015

Dr. VanLeuvan is the best!

September 23, 2015

September 23, 2015

I'm very happy and have confidence in my primary doctor, Dr. Van Leuven

September 22, 2015

My Dr Sandra has always gone out of her way to help me with all my medical need. She is Fabulous

September 21, 2015

Sandra is a great Doctor!!!

September 15, 2015

Dr Van Leuven is an excellent diagnostician. She provided clear explanations and suggestions. I feel she goes the extra step because she cares about what she does.

September 05, 2015

Sandra Van Leuven is great, always very helpful!

September 04, 2015

August 31, 2015

great to have a primary care provider over several years

August 21, 2015

I recommend Sandra all of the time. She is a terrific doctor.

August 18, 2015

Seeing Sandra was worth the wait. She is clearly going to be a wonderful primary care physician. I am lucky she is based in park city.

August 16, 2015

Extremely helpful visit. Dr Van Leuven focuses on the issues at hand and gives excellent care.

August 16, 2015

doc is genuinely in tuned to my concerns. great advice, care and treatment provided. super!

August 11, 2015

I can't imagine going to any other doctor!! I'm always treated with concern and kindness.

July 11, 2015

Dr. VanLeuven continues to provide excellent and "unhurried" care for me. I really appreciate the time.

March 15, 2015

Supposed to be annual checkup but no time, didn't recognize incipient ear/sinus infection

March 09, 2015

Dr. Van Leuven is excellent!

March 02, 2015

Dr. VanLeuven is the BEST!! She is the reason I come to this clinic!! And I've sent many friends to her also!

February 14, 2015

loved Dr Van Leuven once i finally saw her

February 11, 2015

Excellent referral to cardiologist and followup

February 03, 2015

Sandra Van Leuven is the best physician I have ever had. I have followed her through three different facilities, because of her excellent care. She genuinely cares about her patients, and will take the time to explain and procedures. She will also listen to any concerns and work with her patients to determine the best course of action.

January 27, 2015

I especially appreciated Dr. Van Leuvens sense of humor, attention to My Chart and medical knowledge.

January 24, 2015

Dr V. is the best doctor I have ever had and have changed healthcare providers for several years to keep her as my doctor. She listens to you and understands the concerns not only on a medical level but a personal level

January 18, 2015

Sandra sits and talks to you as long as it takes.

January 18, 2015

Dr Van Leuven is an excellent physician who listens carefully to patient's questions, explains diagnosis carefully and completely, researches questions that patient might have. Feel so fortunate to have her as my primary care doctor

January 14, 2015

Dr very detailed in care

January 04, 2015

Excellent!!

December 22, 2014

Everything was excellent!

December 12, 2014

I followed Dr Van Leuven here from her previous clinic. I tried someone else last year because not wild about the Redstone Clinic. But her care outweighs my problems with the U of Utah

December 08, 2014

I am very pleased with this doctor.

November 29, 2014

Dr. Van Leuven made me feel really comfortable and was overall a wonderful doctor

November 28, 2014

I am thrilled she is my dr...she is exceptional.

November 22, 2014

I have been looking for a new primary care physician and this was the 4th attempt at finding one. Dr Leuven is perfect. I particularly like that the U offers video bios of doctors vs. the standard education, board certs, languages. While that is important information, if you don't click with your doctor it doesn't really matter.

November 18, 2014

great experience. thank you.

November 12, 2014

I believe she was some type of assistant

November 12, 2014

Dr. Van Leuven is very compassionate and always takes plenty of time listening to my concerns. I've recommended her to a few people.

November 09, 2014

Best provider I have ever had in my life. I am so grateful to have found her and to be under her care. She was informative, kind, concerned, helpful, intelligent, knew latest research. What a gem I have found. Thank you to her.

Everything exceptionally great!

October 25, 2014

Very good experience, I really appreciate my care giver, she's very caring and understanding and explains every question I have

October 23, 2014

My doctor was excelent given the 20 minute visit

October 13, 2014

Dr Van Leuvan must be over-worked -- she consistently is impatient with too many questions and explains that she has spent enough time with me and needs to get on to the next patient. I usually have concerns that go unanswered because I seem to have used up my allotted time.

October 11, 2014

Dr. VanLeuven is the most conscientious and thorough doctor I have ever seen. I appreciate her sensitivity and ability to communicate in an effective manner with me.

October 06, 2014

Dr. Van Leuven is great!

July 15, 2014

In addition, Dr. Van Leauven has been gracious about following up via my chart. It is easy to contact her.

July 06, 2014

A very positive experience overall. The doctor created a comfortable open atmosphere, addressed my questions, and was very helpful.

June 28, 2014

Dr. Van Leuven spent a sufficient amount of time with me. She is professional and very knowledgeable. She listens carefully to all my concerns.

June 28, 2014

Sandra is awesome!

June 28, 2014

Dr. Vanleuvan took the time to thoroughly answer my questions and concerns. Because I was starting a new medication she explained the side effects and how to use the medication. I think she is an asset to your clinic.

Sandra Van Lueven was great. She spent a good length of time discussing my health which since I only see her once a year was appreciated.

June 07, 2014

May 22, 2014

Dr Vanluven shows special consideration an care for her patients. She is top notch.

May 19, 2014

We talked for about an hour on past medical history that could have been given much earlier by email or survey before the appointment. I had to make another appointment to do what I wanted to with this one. I really

May 10, 2014

Feel fortunate to have such a competent doctor as Dr Van Leuven.

May 06, 2014

I was very happy with the personalized and professional visit on such a short notice.

April 27, 2014

I followed Dr Van Leuven from her previous office. I am very pleased with her choice to move to the U OF U.

March 28, 2014

very supportive!

March 26, 2014

It would be great if there was a way to keep me from sitting in the room for more than a few minutes after undressing. Maybe I can sit there clothed until the doc is ready to see me, then I undress, then she comes in.

March 20, 2014

would recommend

March 17, 2014

As always, Dr. Van Leuven is extremely thorough, competent, and caring for me!!

January 25, 2014

This was my first visit to Dr Van Leuvener {spelling?} and she was down to earth, friendly but I didn't doubt for a second she was knowledgeable and cared about my situation.

January 20, 2014

Dr. Van Luven gave me accurate information on when I should have follow up exams. I like the preventative care idea rather than the fix it after something could have been prevented.

January 10, 2014

Dr. Van Leuven if fantastic and communicates well with me. I will never trade doctors

January 06, 2014

I was a patient with the care-provider in her former office. She has always been excellent in all our meetings.
