Total Health 11/8/2010

Good: Dr always has time for me. I have been under her care for approx 7 years and I would not think of going anywhere else. She treats my total health, not just what is ailing me at the time. She helps me to stay well and I always feel that she genuinely cares about my total health. When she says "how are you" she means it! Wonderful feeling to know your doctor is concerned for your total well being.. Bad: Nothing. Other: Dr. Cathy makes it so I feel like a visit to a friend, not an impersonal technical visit.. more

Will never go back 9/27/2010

The worst doctor I have been to. I agree with others who said that she is rushed and doesn't allow for questions. After waiting 40 minutes in the exam room, she spoke to me for two minutes, and after I had asked one question, stood up and walked out of the room to the reception area. Once there, she was fiddling with the printer, while answering my questions. Unfortunately for me, I'm not comfortable asking medical questions in front of a waitingroom of people. After this visit, I needed to get a second round of blood tests (Dr. V forgot to include several necessary tests in my first round). After waiting three weeks, I called for my results-though I was told by Quest, who does the bloodwork, that results would be back in 3-4 days. I was told by an impatient receptionist that the Dr. was on vacation and she would "look around to see if she could find the tests results". After more than a month had passed since the date of the tests, I called back. Again, the receptionist told me she would look around and call me back. This time, I did get a call, only to have them tell me that the Dr. had already told me results--still no word on what they were. I had to call back, to have the receptionist insist that I had already received my results because there was a "note" on the results that said that I had. The results I was waiting on were a simple "Yes you have this disease" or a "It was negative"--something I would surely remember if I had been told. I have never experienced something like this- a receptionist supposedly there to help patients, rudely insisting I had already been told whether or not I had disease. This review may seem petty, but I truly cannot get over the general disorganization and lack of courtesy I experienced here. I have always gotten along with my doctors, and never felt inspired to write any sort of review. My experience with Dr. V. was so out of the ordinary, I felt I had to share it. Finding a doctor is hard, but I wouldn't bother with Brookline Family Health more

Best Doc in Brookline 8/6/2009

Dr. Vandenheuvel is the best doctor in Brookline. She is very patient and an excellent listener. She refers patients to the best specialists and personally ensures that referrals are made in a timely manner. In addition, she ensures that her office staff function efficiently as a team. Great Job, Dr. Cathy!!!! more

useless 5/19/2009

world least helpful receptionist. She spoke with such distant and contempt that i got the feeling she wants people to feel helpless. more

Great doctor! 1/2/2009

Ive been seeing her for 4 years and I'm always impressed at how much time she spends in the room with me. She goes above and beyond to make sure I'm taken care of and that all my questions are answered. The first time I had my anual pap smear with her, I could hardly believe it was over! She was quick and as non- invasive as she couldve been. I highly recommend her! R. Menard more

Great Family Doctor 10/7/2008

My family and I have been with Dr. Vandenheuvel since she moved to Brookline. I can only give glowing reviews of her professionalism and dedication to her practice & patients. She has time for all of us and our questions (from menopause to HPV). I would highly recommend her to anyone of any age!! more

Excellent doctor 3/7/2008

Dr. Vandenheuvel is great! 1/17/2007

I have been with Dr. Vandenheuval for almost three years now, and she is excellent. She has been incredibly helpful with my chronic back pain and with my recently diagnosed diaberes. I've always had at least 20 minutes with her, and she has always answered every question I've had, which have been many. more

Not a good doctor 8/30/2005

Dr. Vandenheuvel is constantly rushed, doesn't allow her patients to ask questions, and spends no more than 5 minutes at most with each patient. I found her to be cold and impatient. more
