  1. Kevin,
    I was shocked to learn of Dr. Vanderveen’s passing. I have been a patient of hers since 2000.
    For every Mohs surgery she did on me (many) she was always so gentle. I loved her, her kindness, and her stories about her dog. Such a sweet lady. She will be dearly missed.

  2. My sympathy to Kevin, whom I have never met. Your wife was the best Doctor and with her perseverance and patience diagnosed a skin concern for me. She recently treated my 91 year old mother and treated her as if she were her own. She will be missed by so many here in Grand Rapids. I am so saddened by her passing and will remember her fondly.

  4. I’m so very sorry to hear of Dr Vander Veen’s passing. She was such a kind and caring person, who chatted like a best friend while treating me.
