Dr. Rob is the best.  Not only is he a great surgeon (I am very happy with my results!), he is kind, compassionate, and a wonderful communicator.  He is genuinely concerned about every aspect of your surgery, personally following up before and afterwards, and he patiently and thoughtfully answers every question.  His practice epitomizes a rare combination of professionalism and warmth.  Highly and unconditionally recommended.

I have never liked how my eyes looked, but becoming of age they became more droopy, something that really kept me busy.  Next to that it started to bother me as well that my eyelids were covering part of my visual field. In the end I discussed this with my eye doctor who told me about dr. van der Veen. 

I was not very convinced to have myself operated because I don´t like cosmetic surgery for the fear I have that it would change my face, but in the end I decided to consult dr. van der Veen. He explained me very clearly how this surgery is performed and I immediately decided to put me in his hands. 

The result looks perfect and his manners are flawless. I recommend him 100%.

“ El dr. van der Veen me realizo una muy buena exploración en donde me planteo la técnica más adecuada a mis necesidades. Después de 2 meses de mi blefaroplastia de los párpados superior he de decir que estoy muy contenta con el resultado y recibo muchos comentarios positivos. Si tuviera que volver a hacerlo repetiría con él sin duda.”

"I spend 3 years having a severely low upper eyelid (ptosis) and having my eye almost closed, which had lowered my self-confidence forcing me to wear dark glasses. After visiting several other doctors who were not inclined to correct it, I was luckily referred to Dr. Rob van der Veen. Rob was the first doctor to explain me why I developed a ptosis in the first place after my previous squint correction surgery. He reviewed my situation and offered to operate on me with the confidence that my eye situation could improve and did so successfully. I was finally able to look, feel and live normally! 

Rob's successful treatment was the first of many good things that happened in my life and I am grateful for the difference he made to my private and professional life. I wholeheartedly recommend his services to my friends and family.”

"Las intervenciones del Dr. van der Veen han conseguido que vuelva a sentirme bien conmigo mismo, que gane esa seguridad que me faltaba por culpa del aspecto de mis ojos. Ya no tengo problemas en salir en las fotos sin gafas de sol. He conseguido lo que a día de hoy son unos ojos perfectos para mí. Por su profesionalidad y por haber estado a mi lado cuando yo ya no veía ninguna solución, le estaré siempre agradecido."

"During my stay in Mallorca I suddenly got a very painful eye and eyelid which worried me a lot. Thanks to a tele-consultation with dr. van der Veen, he was able to think with me in my own language. He is very knowledgable , really listens and takes the time needed. Dr. van der Veen is a very involved clinician and after the first consultation he maintained contact with me to follow up how things were evolving. Because of the great reachability, the help feels really close and that gives a lot of confidence. Thanks to his advice I took the right steps and am now without complaints!"

"Ik had al jaren last van een glad knobbeltje op mijn ooglidrand, waarbij de wimperharen ongelijkmatig groeiden en mijn hoornvlies irriteerden. Vanwege eerder verwijderde huidkanker in mijn gezicht, bezocht ik jaarlijks een dermatoloog die helaas niet de huidkanker op mijn ooglid erkende. Ik werd vervolgens doorverwezen naar dr. van der Veen, een zeer vriendelijke, betrokken én bovenal uiterst kundige arts. Bij de ingreep werd een groot deel van het onderooglid verwijderd en weer hersteld. Het is heel mooi genezen. Ik ben heel blij dat dr. van der Veen mijn behandelend arts is en blijft."

"Ik kwam bij dr. van der Veen met een klein bultje op mijn onderooglid. Hij had de diagnose snel vastgesteld en het bleek een vorm van huidkanker te zijn. Een operatie volgde met vooraf duidelijke en uitgebreide informatie. De behandeling is zeer deskundig uitgevoerd en uiteindelijk zie je er bijna niets meer van. Hij is een deskundige arts, neemt de tijd en stelt je op je gemak. Ik ben hem zeer dankbaar."
