I've with Dr. Vankalsbeek for >10 years, I always appreciated her way of including me in the decision regarding the care plan; and she always is ready to answer my questions and concerns. She is a very good provider.
June 15, 2022
One thing is I said I was due for a shot but the doc assured me I was all caught up. Got a call an hourish after I left and now have to schedule a separate appointment for a shot that was forgotten.

May 21, 2022
Dr. Carilyn is a great listener. I never doubt her thoroughness or intention to provide great care.
May 11, 2022
Dr Van Kals Beek always treats me with kind words. She explains everything so that I understand my diagnosis and ask me how I feel about doing certain test. Dr. Van Kals Beek is so very intelligent and respectful.
May 06, 2022
My team in the exam room for the biopsy was excellent. Their lighthearted banter, which included me, was the perfect way to alleviate any anxiousness. I so appreciated the positivity.
May 05, 2022
We decided together that it would be a good idea to repeat a sleep study.

A call from the hospital interrupted my visit, regarding a sicker patient. The physician was going to cut my visit short. I asked physician to return after the call to finish our visit and physician honored my request.
January 16, 2022
I always recommend Dr Van Kalsbeek to those I know (& sometimes to those I don't even know but see asking for physician recommendations on fb chat sites). Dr VKB ALWAYS takes the time to listen to my needs or concerns and we come up with a plan together (even tho I would totally be ok with her just doing what she thinks is best bc she is definitely that smart!)
January 13, 2022
I have been bombarded by health issues recently, and Dr VanKalsbeek and her entire team have all been phenomenal! Dr V is amazing
January 13, 2022
Dr. Vankalsbeek even asked if I preferred the medicine for my rash in a squeeze container or dispensing bottle.
October 05, 2021
Only complaint I have is that I had a scheduled appointment t and didn't get seen until an hour after the scheduled time. Then another hour for labs. 2 hours at the clinic for a total of 15 minutes of treatment.
October 05, 2021

Dr Van Kalsbeek and I go back many years and she is the best.

September 07, 2021
Known Dr for 30 years. Worked with her. Great person.
August 31, 2021
I see Dr. Carilyn Van Kalsbeek, she is always very professional and so caring about how I am doing both medically and mentally!
August 24, 2021
Scheduling appointments are too close together. Waiting for your appointment get to be a long.
August 10, 2021
Love the separate waiting rooms. Wait times are very minimal. People are all very friendly, professional and efficient. It is a great place to get healthcare because it is not so big and everything is very accessible.
August 10, 2021
I felt like I was rushed and I felt like there was not enough question asked or asked if I had any questions.
August 10, 2021
Dr. Van Kalsbeek is wonderful. Extremely understanding and caring. Very professional.,
August 03, 2021
I am thankful for the care I receive from my Avera team!
August 03, 2021
The nurse was amazing and timely. However, after the nurse had taken my vitals and asked me questions, I waited in the room for an hour and 20 minutes to see the provider. She then spent less than 6 minutes with me and said "good luck" when she left the room. She also wrote my prescription incorrectly so I had to wait at the pharmacy extra long as well.
August 03, 2021
Very satisfied
August 03, 2021
Unsure if I needed to get a new prescription as this was not made clear at the end of my appointment.
July 27, 2021
I am very satisfied with the care I recieved
July 20, 2021
Avera CARES! The mammogram tech was gentle, kind and caring. Dr. VanKalsbeek and her nurse are always kind and caring. Dr. V and the mammogram tech worked together to determine how to best meet my medical needs. best
July 20, 2021
She's one of the best docs I've had... and I've had a lot
July 13, 2021

June 22, 2021
I received outstanding care and conern at this visit
June 22, 2021
I waited 30 minutes from the time the nurse checked me in and took my vitals, to when the doctor finally came in. She spent 4 minutes with me and sent me to labs. The wait time between nurse and doctor is always ling, which is frustrating
June 15, 2021
I've been with this particular provider for >10 years, and always come to her for my annual visits because she is a good provider, always listens and gives good medical advice and info; includes patients in the care plan process
June 08, 2021
Lab is always good clinicians too.
June 01, 2021
Dr Van Kalsbeek and her nurse are so kind, understanding and listen to you as a pt. Very good care, communication and prompt with getting back to me if questions or concerns.

There has been a change over in the reception area. I have to say the one woman is not friendly.
May 11, 2021

Dr. Van Kalsbeek is a very caring doctor. She took the time to sit with me and give me some resources to prepare for having a baby. We aren't even pregnant yet, but she took the time to make me feel prepared for what is potentially to come. I so appreciate her care!
April 06, 2021
Dr Van Kalsbeek and nurse were great!!

March 30, 2021

My nurse was genuinely interested in the fact that i am having to wait for my covid shot. She took notes and commented that she would follow up on the issue.
March 09, 2021
Always have had a good experience at this clinic, from Dr. Van Kalsbeek to the nurses, to the staff and lab.
March 02, 2021
i appreciate the care the medical staff at Avera continues to show even during this pandemic .
March 02, 2021
I don't feel that I was given adequate explanation of what I was experiencing. I wasn't given any kind of expectation of how long my recovery could take or if I wasn't fully recovered by XYZ to return for a follow up. I was simply given a list of exercises to do and sent on my way.
March 02, 2021
Sometimes when I come in feeling symptoms for something, we'll take tests to see what it is/rule out certain things. But when the tests come back completely negative for everything, sometimes my doctor doesn't know what else to do and I have no answers for why I'm experiencing the things that I am.
March 02, 2021
Good service. Good provider and nursing staff. Had all my questions answered and was well treated.
February 23, 2021
The care is good but with the pandemic, you cannot get ahold of anybody.
February 23, 2021
Staff was courteous, helpful and listened to all my past medical to treat
February 23, 2021
I appreciate my relationship with Dr. Vankalsbeek and the nurse is a great part of her team.
February 16, 2021
Dr Van Kalsbeek is so kind and compassionate. She is the best!
February 09, 2021
I always feel a little rushed. I had some pretty big concerns at my last physical and needed to emphasize my concerns to the doctor. Otherwise I feel they may have been overlooked even though they were charted.
February 09, 2021
Dr. Van Kalsbeek is a terrific doctor who clearly cares about me.
February 02, 2021
Every has always been kind and caring

January 26, 2021
After nurse checked me in, I sat in the exam room for 20+ minutes before dr came in. Thought they forgot about me....

The wait was excessive yesterday, it usually is not that long but yesterday I waited an hour
