William (Barney) Van Valin, MD


It’s with a heavy heart that Buellton Medical Center would like to inform all patients of Dr. William B. Van Valin II that he is no longer with us. Our beloved Dr. Van Valin passed away on Saturday January 4th, 2020. At this moment we are not able to disclose any more information out of respect and compassion for his family.

Dr. Van Valin was born and raised in the Santa Ynez Valley and he loved his hometown. He worked at Buellton Medical Clinic and Center since 2004. He was a good man and great doctor; he will be greatly missed by all his patients and all the people that knew him.

We would also like to reassure all his patients that you still have a medical home here at Buellton Medical Center. Please call us to make arrangements and we can continue providing you the best care possible.
