Dr. Van Tuyl is a dear friend and colleague. I trusted his hands to take my second son to surgery for an adenoidectomy at the age of 1 year and a tonsillectomy at 3 years. The child's symptoms have completely resolved and he is now a happy, smiling little boy. I would ask him to take care of any of my family and trust his hands and decision-making capabilities.

Get a second opinion if you are planning surgery with this doctor. I fell and broke my nose and was seen by Dr. Van Tuyl approximately 10 days after my fall. The dr. said I needed surgery for the broken nose and he would be able to fix the appearance of my nose which was NOT related to the break. I agreed to the surgery but my gut was telling me this dr. isn't a PLASTIC SURGEON!! Should I trust him to do surgery on my face??? I went for a 2nd opinion & was told with a broken nose you have to have "surgery within 7 days of the break" because the break starts to heal after that time. He told me I didn't need surgery, I could breathe properly and my nose was properly aligned. What does my experience tell you? Trust your gut & get that 2nd opinion. Not everyone has your best interest. Sadly, some are more interested in their wallet!.

Had a very quick initial visit, then came back for tests. No follow up whatsoever regarding the issues found. Very disappointed, still in pain. Time and money spent for what?

Unless you want to be gouged price wise stay away from this place. They never told me that my son was going to see a PA instead of a doctor. Then the bill was $245.00 to look in his ear. I called the office and ask for a self pay price, but they would not do that. Terrible place. Over the top in price and you don’t even see a doctor.

You will not want to use Jasper Office. The young staff there are jokes! Not very friendly and cannot complete Doctor’s orders, will not return messages!!! About as competent as fast food teenagers! Love the Doctors but entry level people are lacking!

I was taken advantage of because of the lack of clarity regarding cost of care. I was told a relatively low price and was hit with bills totaling 1000$ which is outrageous for what I had done (two visits and minor tests). They take advantage of the health insurance system by overcharging and if you can't afford the best insurance you have to pay an astronomical amount. I've never had a doctor visit with the equivalent of what I had done cost so much. I tried to get them to fix it to no avail.

I would not recommend Dr. Van Tuyl, I found his staff to be inept in their job duties. I was overcharged $420.00 by his office. Had I not gone into my EOB on my insurance web site I do not believe they would of refunded me the money if I had not called them. I went to another EN for a second opinion and the office staff made it very difficult for m to get the medical records to another doctor's office. They wanted me to pay for each page faxed to the other doctor's office.
