I felt that Andrea listened to what I had to say and answered all my questions and she was really vigilant I should say on what was going on with me.
October 02, 2019
It's always a blessing to see Andrea Meekins and her staff is quite efficient. Everything went perfect. Everything went great at the. thank you very much.
October 01, 2019
I felt rushed. I had questions, but was rushed so I did not have time to ask them.
September 30, 2019
My experience was excellent.
August 23, 2019
Check in she was extremely friendly and Andrea Meekins our first time meeting her was AMAZING A+++++++!
August 23, 2019
Very professional and caring people. My appointment time was right on, never waited. Pleasant appointment
August 21, 2019
I have been a patient of NCH for about 15 years and have always had a great experience.
August 16, 2019
Andrea Meekins is a very nice lady. She made my wife and myself very comfortable. I'm not comfortable now because I have to go back to work but, some people have to do that to make sticky stuff for sick people.
August 16, 2019
Yes, I would like them to get the check ups closer to where I live. I asked her to do that and she said she was going to do it in Mitchell, but I'd like to know why you're on possible Regional Hospital can't have someone do this cuz it cost me like $300 just to go down there because I have to pay for somebody to take me down there and the wear and tear on the car plus the gas. So if they could have somebody even closer than Mitchell, I would really be great. Okay. Thanks.

Overall, it was a great experience. Not knowing what to expect with a cardiac stress test, I was a bit apprehensive. But everyone I came into contact with, was reassuring, caring, professional, and did their best to make sure that I understood what was happening. I appreciated everything that was done for me.
August 09, 2019
I was very happy with my visit. Didn't have much of a wait time, even for a test that had to be done.
August 09, 2019
Yes, I thought it was very important. She gave all the information that I needed to take and get and we'll just have to wait to take and see what she had to take and say to the other two surgeons that she works with. I appreciate it very much. Thank you.

I have a background in interior design and have noticed that while the facility is contemporary looking some of the exam room furniture looks scuffed and a rolling stool has a torn seat cover. This lack of maintenance could lead me to wonder about standards in other areas. NCH has a good reputation. Let's keep it that way and take care of equipment/furniture. (Or perhaps purchase higher quality items so that wear is not so obvious in only a year's time.) Thank you for the good care I have received.
August 06, 2019
Yes my experience down there was very good. It was very move you along. Didn't leave you sitting. It was, it was good.
July 30, 2019
Everything was very well taken care of, explained very well.
July 29, 2019
wish they could find a different way to do the altra sound on my device, laying on their beds hurts my back, otherwise, I have no complaints about how I am treated at the heart hospital.. thanks
July 24, 2019
You have a great staff and outstanding outstanding. Doctor was a wonderful. I don't like to go to the doctor a lot but she is one of the best I've ever been to.
July 17, 2019
She took plenty of time and showed she cared about my health.

I really appreciate Andrea Meekins was a very helpful to me understanding what was happening.
June 25, 2019
You can stop calling the second night in a row. That's how you can improve this survey. I did this last night and now I got the call again. So check who you're calling and get your Robo machine in line.
June 25, 2019

Andrea Meekins is always so pleasant and has a caring attitude. I love her!
June 19, 2019
The only negative thing I would say is your new way of doing the registration. There was such a backlog of people I could not believe I thought I would never get in there. But anyway that I did not care for, but Andrea was very pleasant, very helpful, and I really enjoy seeing her. Thank you.
June 17, 2019
I recently had a provider elsewhere and I did not appreciate it because he did not listen to me. But I went down to Heart Hospital down there and directed me to a general physician, and I would just like to rate him excellent too - he's one of the best. Thank you.
June 12, 2019
We enjoyed the appointments because everybody seemed to be enjoying their job and enjoying working with each other and all of the nurses were very helpful and understanding and just helpful. That's all.

February 22, 2019
I would just say Andrea was very professional. She would be definitely someone that I feel comfortable talking with, you also feel really well. And she's very accommodating for any requests that I had that kind of stepped outside of what we were dealing with me personally. getting Labs that I wanted done as long as I was there. Saw very professional excellent bed side manner and I'd recommend her to anybody. Thank you.

We were there on a referral by my regular doctor about a CT that showed a problem with the aorta. The referral was to Dr. Hibbard who is on vacation. I was seen by his PA. She was very thrall, shared the information with the surgeons who are ordering further tests. We have confidence that I am getting the best care.
January 15, 2019
Doctor was very concerned, spent a lot of time with me, spent time with me before the appointment in my.... in another room because I had...had a person checking my device, and she came in there and talked to us before the regular appointment. I was very happy with that. So, thank you.
January 11, 2019
I had an ultrasound after talking to the doctor. I left then I haven't heard any results from the ultrasound yet. I am taking it for my granted that it was. Okay, but I don't know for sure. Thank you.
