I would say that she did a good job with everything, but I'm wondering on one place on one of the sheets. It says that I could start to drive again it two weeks and then the other place it said 4 weeks. So I'm kind of wondering about that because I have a hard time. having somebody get me and drive me around because lot of my family doesn't live close by. So I just was wondering about that. Okay. I don't know where they at.

I love the Heart Hospital. I have been coming here for quite a few years. They are very attentive may take a great interest in you. They're very knowledgeable. They do an excellent job. I am on my second Pacemaker, and if I ever have questions or anything, all I have to do is ask they're very knowledgeable. They actually know my name even though they have a chart there. They seem to remember me, and I appreciate that personal ability that they do give you. I would recommend the Heart Hospital anyone and everyone who has any problems regarding heart actually my son-in-law earlier this year with her problem, and I know he he delayed potatoes great. So keep up the great work. Thank you.

Well, I would highly recommend Heart Hospital at Sioux Falls.

Andrea did a very good job very well, very knowledgeable and very easy to understand. She's outstanding.
December 27, 2019
My blood pressure was higher than usual and at the end of the day when I went back, I was informed that the blood pressure was the blood pressure machine or whatever you wanna call. It was registering high to every patient. I think you should probably do something about that either have it replaced or have a repaired because that's kind of frightening when your blood pressure was high and you know that you took your blood pressure medicine and it shouldn't be that high, but the fact that they said it registered high all day concerns me. Otherwise it was a great.
December 09, 2019
Outstanding- from the beginning to the end service was great! Andrea Meekins was outstanding- very pto-active. I have and will continue to promote Avera and the Heart Hospital. Thank you for living Avera mission.
