My experience with Dr and his staff exceeded my expectations. Everyone made me feel at ease and they showed a great deal of compassion and genuine concern. I would highly recommend Avera Ortho, and will be a return patient for further orthopedic needs. Ben was awesome during my follow up appt. Adequate time allowed to address concerns/ questions.

I went to the Human Services walk in clinic in SF, SD and saw the ortho doctor, Ben. This was the first time that my son needed any speciality care. Ben without a doubt, went above and beyond in both his dinosaur talk with son to make him feel at ease and him ensuring that I had all the information I needed as a mom. Thank you Ben!

Rude receptionist when checking in. Announced to everybody that I was nearly 10 mins late and she would have to check if they could still see me. Then called back there, holding up a line of people behind me. I was indeed 5 mins late but this could have been addressed differently.

Very satisfied
August 10, 2021
I saw a PA that wasn't on my surgical team and he didn't know my protocol which was frustrating as I had the expectation my follow up from surgery who I was seeing would know that. He documented I had full extension which I do not and he never measured or tested my knee range of motion. I waited 40 minutes and saw my actual surgeon who was great and answered all my questions in less than 3 minutes. The nurse who removed my sutures was fantastic!
August 03, 2021
I waited in the exam room for 40 minutes and no one came in to give me any info. The provider did apologize for the delay but I thought the nurse could have come in after 15 minutes or so to say they were running behind. I didn't really understand how they could be behind when my appointment was at 8:30. He was very nice when he did come in.
July 27, 2021
I was very satisfied with my surgical results and the follow up assessments from the physicians
