Specialties

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Ophthalmology

    An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
    Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

Would highly recommend

I was shuffled between 3 doctors before I was referred to Dr Van Stavern. I am so pleased that I ended up in his office. I was taken back earlier than my actual appointment time and was very impressed with how productive my appt was. His entire staff was wonderful, very kind and professional. They even stayed late to run an extra test on me so I didn't have to drive another 2 hours another day just to have it done. He told me he would call me later that evening with results and he did. I feel he was very thorough and listened to my concerns. I can't express enough how happy I am to have found Dr Van Stavern and his staff. After many appts with other doctors, I finally have some answers.

Incredibly Dismissive - and wrong

I didn't fit into his categories, so he dismissed everything I had to say, which happened to be the facts. He was sure all previous tests were incorrect, sure I and everyone in my entire family had fabricated that I had NOT had double vision as a child (REALLY? are you kidding? delusions of grandeur maybe?) sure that my lasik was not how I described, was for monovision (it wasn't). Wow, I find him pretty terrifying, actually.

Three Stars

He knows his field well, is thorough, and has great assistants. However, he doesn't come across as friendly and it can be easy to feel he doesn't like you.
