*Dr. Van Trigt is an excellent doctor. He is very caring, supportive and easy to communicate with. He practices putting patients first and shows he is more concerned with your health and well being than paperwork, schedules, etc. He was my surgeon and even when I was in the hospital, he visited daily and talked with me. There should be more doctors like him who are impacting patients lives with a love for what they do as well as a love for the patient's care.
