Surgery Testimonials

***** When I arrived for my first appointment, I was warmly greeted by one of her friendly and professional team members. The clinic is a tastefully appointed and welcoming space. Dr VanVliet’s credentials are impressive, her communication skills are excellent, and her presence is reassuring. I immediately felt at ease when she explained the procedure I had been referred to her for. Using state-of-the art equipment, she quickly and painlessly removed 5 skin lesions, all of which healed quickly. We are very fortunate that Dr van Vliet has opened Spring Skin here on Salt Spring Island!

Every time I visit Spring Skin, I am truly impressed with the competence and professionalism of this top notch clinic. During my last appointment, I had treatment to address some sun damage, a few injectables and the surgical removal of some bothersome skin keratoses. Dr vanVliet took the time to thoroughly assess my skin and offer various solutions. She and her staff also explained every step as we went through the treatments and procedures. Despite the fair distance for me to travel to Spring Skin, I have found it to be worthwhile in every way. I am beyond thrilled with the overall experience and impressive results.


Dr vanVliet and her team in Spring Spring are highly professional and very respectful of privacy and the personality of each client. The office is exceptionally clean and welcoming. Dr vanVliet has an artist’s eye and a surgeon’s hand. I have thorough confidence in her aesthetic advice and skills. I would recommend this office for anyone seeking basic skin maintenance to age defying therapies, from removal of simple skin lesions to more complicated, larger excisions. The end result is an advertisement in itself.
