Dr. Van Deusen is respectful and friendly and attentive to my concerns. He takes the time to listen to me and it is evident that he has taken the time to understand my extensive medical history. I am so thankful to have found a great PCP in transitioning from almost solely seeing pediatric specialists to an adult PCP!
Dr. Reed VanDuessen, my PCP, has always been an excellent care provider. He takes the time to listen and respond to my questions and concerns. He fully explains the pros and cons regarding any health-related matter. I truly trust his opinion and he clearly exhibits a thorough knowledge of all health topics. UPMC needs more PCPs like him.
Excellent care !
Dr. Van Duesen is by far the best PCP we have ever had for our son. He is so good in talking to him and getting him to answer questions. We feel extremely lucky and blessed that we have him as our son's doctor. We love him.
My doctor is very kind, easy to understand and gave me a very good physical exam. I would recommend him to anyone
Dr. Van Deusen is always personable and comprehensive in his approach to a visit, very satisfied.
After my PCP left the practice, I made an appt. for a physical exam with Dr. Van Deusen. He is an excellent doctor and was very attentive to my questions and concerns. I am glad that I found such a competent and caring health care provider.
REED'S A GREAT DOCTOR. HE LISTENS TO MY CONCERNS AND ADDRESSES ALL MY QUESTIONS
the appointment started prompty, Dr. Van Deusen really listened and engaged me in medical decision making. We met for annual / routine physical and it was a great visit.
I'm pleased to complete this survey about Dr. Van Deusen. He is superb. He is does research about questions I ask, and is kind. I'm very fortunate to have him as my physician. I have sent other people to see him to become their doctor. He has been very respectful and inquisitive about GLBT concerns, and I am very impressed with his bedside manner. UPMC is lucky to have him.
Dr. VanDeusen is wonderful.
Dr. Van Duesen is top notch! Great physician.
Excellent care... This was my first visit with a new PCP since my former PCP retired.. I am very pleased I chose him.
Dr. Reed VanDeusen is the best!!!
Dr. Van Deusen always provides compassionate, quality care.
My wife had to cancel an appointment at the last minute and I asked if I could take the slot (I had an appointment two days later) they said that was ok. when the doctor saw me in the waiting area he stopped and asked if I was there with my wife. that indicated to me that he looked at her records earlier in the day before the appointment was cancelled. I think that is a great thing that he does that kind of preparation and doesn't just pop up the chart when the patient walks in which I know lots of doctors do. nice job.
Dr VanDeusen is always professional, welcoming and respectful!
I had a great experience with Dr. Van Deusen. Based on this first visit I rated him a 10/10 and I am not an easy grader. He listened well, respected what I had to say and explored a separate issue that other doctors ignored. He made an effort to come back into the examine room to go over some results with me, which was super nice, and shared all the test results with me via myUPMC by the next morning. It was an exceptional doctor/patient experience. During part of the examine he stated that he was going to give the findings some extra thought unlike what I experience with many other physicians. I already recommended him to a friend!
Dr. Van Deusen is a capable, caring professional. I chose an insurance provider with the goal of remaining on his patient roster.
Van Deusen is a great PCP. Takes a lot of time with me to discuss issues. Very knowledgeable.

my daughter was a patient of Dr Van Deusen. He is a wonderful, caring doctor who truely cares for he's patients and that's why I switched my PCP because of him plus his staff and how wonderful and caring they are also
Dr. Reed Van Deusen is a kind and compassionate care provider. He has a great rapport with his patients and takes the time to explain the decisions he is making in regards to the care he is providing and to encourage patients to care for their personal health. He is easy to converse with, listens attentively to questions and concerns, and responds knowledgably. I am also impressed with the attentiveness, kindness, and knowledge of his nurse assistants. I would recommend Dr. Van Deusen to everyone!
I called in the morning about concerns and was able to get an appointment the same day. In addition, the staff member on the phone noticed that I was due for my annual physical, so I was able to take care of my health concern and get my physical completed at one visit. Dr. Van Deusen was great at listening to me and discussing my treatment options.
we love how Dr. Van Duesen works with our son. He really makes him comfortable and understands how to handle him and his disability
Dr. Van Deusen did an outstanding job
Dr. Van Deusen makes general check-ups a downright pleasant experience. He listens to my concerns and responds thoughtfully, and is consistently warm and good-humored.

Dr. Van Deusen is a very thorough doctor who showed genuine interest in my health. He made sure I got answers to my questions. Also he made an effort to consult with other specialists regarding my concerns. He is what every primary care doctor should be.
First time going to a doctor that actually didn't seem rushed and really spent time with us. Seemed very knowledgeable.
He's one of the best I've seen in the recent times. His courtesy and listening attitude is just what any patient needs. I will surely visit him again.
