I really like Dr Vande Kop. She is very compassionate and listens to what you have to say. She is also very intelligent and confident in explaining things to me. I trust what she says completely.

Seems to take a long time to get checked in, especially when all your information is already in the computer. Also lab people eso slow have waited up to 20 min for lab draws.

We left our appointment feeling like Dr. VandeKop did not adequately explain her concerns about our child or recommended courses of action for those concerns--other than the most extreme options. She would say something was fine initially, and then by the end of the appointment that same thing was a major cause for concern. For example, she initially said our child's weight gain was not ideal but since she was still gaining weight and otherwise healthy it could be monitored until her next visit. Then, by the end of the appointment, the weight gain had become a major concern that needed action taken right away after she was reminded that our child has a tongue tie (which she reported as "minor" when our baby was born). She became fixated on the tongue tie, and there was no suggestion of visiting a lactation consultant or investigating issues with milk production as possible solutions if in fact our child was not getting enough milk. She didn't ask if we were set on breastfeeding exclusively or would consider supplementing with formula. Her only recommendation was that we have a procedure to "clip" the tongue tie that very day or consult with an ear, nose, and throat specialist. She had no evidence the tongue tie was causing any problems since she has never seen our child feed or even latch and didn't ask adequate questions about our breastfeeding practices in my opinion. She did not suggest any other resources or options even though there are free lactation consultations available at the Brookings Hospital. She gave my spouse and I a few minutes alone to discuss this concern, which I appreciated, but we felt pressured to make a big decision for our child on the spot without enough time or information.

Dr VandeKop was behind schedule but I didn't for an instant feel hurried. I really appreciate that there's been less turnover than previously because I hope to keep her as my doctor indefinitely!
