Have you seen Dr. David H Van Thiel?
Self-verified patient of Dr. David H Van Thiel - Posted on May 13th, 2017
Dr van thiel is an amazing Doctor. The downfall to his practice is his secretary. She is rude, unprofessional, unorganized and downright nasty during every conversation . It makes it impossible to get the great care that dr van thiel can provide. Such a shame because it lead me to stop seeing him. If I could rate his staff as a zero I would.
for the reviewer " feeling a little bit scared"

When reading "a little bit scared," I too had an endoscopy with rubber bands placed in my esophagus by this doctor. Do not go to this doctor for this procedure! You wake up in so much pain, your throat is scraped up in the back, it last for a week. You can hardly eat or swallow. This happened a few times with me. He is rough and shakes. I go to another doctor now. I am on different meds and my liver is back to normal. I have had two more of these procedures on my esophagus with another doctor. I wake up in no pain, and it was a breeze. No wonder you were scared, you had every right to be. How do you like the receptionist? What she said to me I will never forget. I told him and he had no comment.

Don't go here

This is a crooked Doctor. I still owe lots of money and never got diagnosis. The front desk woman is extremely rude. I waited 5 hours and had unnecessary surgery. Con man
A little bit Scared.....
Self-verified patient of Dr. David H Van Thiel - Posted on March 26th, 2016
I had a colonoscopy and an endoscopy done by Dr. Van Thiel. I was completely trusting of his knowledge, and he seems to pay close attention to everything that Is going on with me. During my colonoscopy and endoscopy, I needed approximately 10 rubber bands put in my esophagus. When I woke up I was in a lot of pain. It was horrible, I kind of just wish I would have had the opportunity of a 2nd opinion. I will still continue to see this Doctor, but prior to any other procedures I will make sure to get a 2nd opinion. I do not feel that he did me wrong, I just feel like it should have been discussed prior to doing the additional surgery. I am still in a lot of pain, so possibly I just feel upset about that....
Cannot get medical records
Self-verified patient of Dr. David H Van Thiel - Posted on December 14th, 2015
I have asked for my medical records to be sent to my new hepatologist multiple times with no success. Apparently Ms George ( Dr Van Thiel's assistant) does not feel that she needs to comply with the law. Many former patients have experienced this same mistreatment.

Dr. Van Thiel is the best. God worked through him to heal my husband, Bob, of Hep C. They said it was a miracle. That's what we prayed for. Thank you!

May 2014 update
Self-verified patient of Dr. David H Van Thiel - Posted on June 10th, 2014
I too was his patient in 2002 & agree his bedside manner is harsh. He does know his field & s involved with new treatment. I am a non-responder thrice over the years. My PCP just referred me to him @ Rush. He also practices in Milwaukee, WI. I am hesitant about going back as the various cocktails of meds made me sicklier...
Very unprofessional receptionist
Self-verified patient of Dr. David H Van Thiel - Posted on August 11th, 2013
Dr VanThiel's receptionist is his wife who talks on the phone loudly, uses the patient's name and problem and violates HIPPA every time I am in there. She is also very rude and extremely unprofessional .
