First time at this clinic and seeing this provider
September 28, 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.
September 26, 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 03, 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.
July 31, 2021
Unsure if I needed to get a new prescription as this was not made clear at the end of my appointment.
July 29, 2021
Very satisfied
July 29, 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.

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!

March 05, 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 02, 2021
Very positive experience. I will be back.
March 01, 2021
Good service. Good provider and nursing staff. Had all my questions answered and was well treated.
February 27, 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.
February 24, 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.
February 24, 2021
i appreciate the care the medical staff at Avera continues to show even during this pandemic .

February 03, 2021
