Professional in every way! Listens to issues and gives answers to calm the nerves of the 'what if'. Explains things so at all times I knew what to expect and things went like clock work. So happy I used Dr.VanNorman for something as precious as my eyesight.

Dr. Van Norman is awesome. I was a little apprehensive about LASIK. Dr. Van Norman made the procedure completely easy and uncomplicated. I am now seeing 20/10 in both eyes. There were absolutely no complications. My eyes were not scratchy or dry. He made sure to get the precise measurements he needed before the procedure. The follow up was great as well. I simply cannot say enough good things about Dr. Van Norman and his very polite, courteous staff. (He also did a fantastic job removing my mom's cataracts!) .

Tips & Advices
An osteopathic physician practices a comprehensive form of medicine that takes a holistic approach to a person's health. Instead of specializing in one system or set of organs, an osteopathic specialist focuses on the health of the total body. This includes evaluating environmental factors that affect a person's well-being.
Many family doctors deliver babies, especially in rural areas without a nearby OB/GYN. However, most family doctors only deliver for low-risk pregnancies and do not perform cesarean sections.
Family nurse practitioners are highly educated nurses able to provide medical care individually or with the assistance of another professional. Family nurse practitioners obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and then take the National Council Licensure Examination to begin working as a registered nurse. Then, they continue their education and obtain a Master of Science in Nursing. Following that, they become certified in family practice via the American Nurses Credentialing Center of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, allowing them to become certified family nurse practitioners.
Some family doctors provide immunizations while others do not. Typically, doctors who work as part of a large practice are more likely to offer vaccines in-house. Doctors in offices of one to two physicians are more likely to refer patients to a public health department or other immunization provider.
A physician's assistant is a person qualified to perform routine medical services.
