DANGEROUSLY INCOMPETENT

He is very rude, is unable to accurately use EMR, gets very easily frustrated by EMR, and walks out of the room (and does not return) before he's finished the history or done a physical exam. He did a Friday afternoon colonoscopy on my husband and then left that afternoon for a vacation, having perforated my husband's bowel and caused sepsis. He is DANGEROUS, UNCARING AND INCOMPETENT!

Thank you

I'm a diabetic that recently underwent a procedure by Dr. Van Linda. The next day my sugar level was high so I called my PCP and was told he was on vacation so I called Dr. Van Linda's office and talked to Kathy Smith. Kathy helped me resolve my issue and even called me later to make sure I was ok. Thank you to the excellent staff at Dr. Van Linda's office!
