EVERY member of your team from Dr.'s to cleaning personnel were all top-notch. I was pretty nervous when I arrived and it wasn't long before I felt at home. The Dr.'s seemed to all work well together. Very good about explaining the problems and the possible solutions. The nurses and their helpers were very helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable! Under the circumstances, your people made it very toleratable. And I was even very impressed with the food. Me being a larger guy and on a healthy diet, there was plenty to eat and it was great!!! Couldn't believe it. THANKS!!!

Dr. Bruce Watt did a great job of explaining what steps he would take moving forward to helping me with my heart condition. I was very impressed with the amount of time he spent with me. I was also impressed with his ability to make me feel as though my health and concerns were also important to him. No surprise here, I have often heard great things about him. I'm sure Avera and North Central Heart feel very fortunate to have him as an important part of their team
