I always have admired how happy and considerate everyone is at this clinic.
October 05, 2019
I missed 4 hrs of work due to my annual physical. Spent two hours sitting in room waiting for dr. Unaccpetable!!
September 24, 2019
Reliably great care
September 22, 2019
A very great experience!
September 19, 2019
I always feel comfortable and listened to.
September 17, 2019
Every time I go for my appointment I have to wait. Yesterday my appointment was at 9:50 and it was 10:30 before the Dr came in. I don't mind waiting once in a while but this seems to happen every time I go in. When your not feeling good, 40 minutes is a long time.
September 11, 2019
This doctor is not my primary but she did an excellent job and made me feel valued just as much as my regular dr.
September 06, 2019
Annual physical took more than 1.5 hours. Of that time I was with staff less than 15 minutes. I waited in the room for a very long time and missed meetings at my own job.
August 31, 2019
Avera, it's staff and receptionist always have a smile ready for you and always show concern and interest in what is going on with you.
August 30, 2019
Appointment was one hour late. My time is valuable just like the clinic staff.
August 30, 2019
I think the receptionist needs to be more on the ball when it comes to messages left
August 29, 2019
Dr Van Kalsbeek always gives you the impression that she has all the time in the world for you, and never seems like she is in a rush to get out of the room. She is compassionate and kind and goes above and beyond. Her new nurse from oncology was awesome as well-I was very well cared for!
August 29, 2019
I have been going to Dr. Van Kalsbeek for 18 years, and she is hands down the best doctor in the city. She cares about her patients and does everything she can to put you at ease and give you the best care! I just love her!
August 28, 2019
Dr V is awesome and her nurse was excellent. The girl that did my mammogram was great. And the woman that took my blood was super friendly and excellent.
August 28, 2019
The Whole team is great. I love that i walk in and i am greeted by name. And that people are very happy to see me. And INterested in my weight loss journey and very positive in their comments and support.
August 27, 2019
The staff was very helpful always. I appreciate all the care they provide
August 15, 2019

August 15, 2019
Very caring doctor and that is very much appreciated!
August 15, 2019
Dr. Van Kalsbeek is knowledgeable and caring. So glad I changed doctors. Everyone at the clinic is always helpful and friendly.
August 14, 2019
Dr. Van Kalsbeek is such an exceptional Doctor, she cares and takes the time to listen. I always feel she cares about me and my health.
August 13, 2019
the wait time from entering the exam room to when the doctor comes in has been 30-40 minutes
August 07, 2019
Long wait, otherwise good
August 06, 2019
Our doctor is very caring and concerned
August 06, 2019
VanKalsbeek is an amazing and caring doctor. I appreciate her attention and care. Thank you
July 31, 2019
Everyone at the clinic is very kind and helpful at all times. The clinic is also very clean and well lighted.
July 24, 2019
The wait time was a bit long this time. I sat in the exam room for over 40 minutes before the doctor came in.
July 19, 2019
The wait time between nurse and doctor.
July 18, 2019
wish there was not always should a delay from appt time to when you are seen, its getting worse.......
July 15, 2019
Carilyn is the only doctor I prefer to deal with. She accepts and considers any suggestions I put forward. She understands my job and lifestyle. She is willing to try a work around. I'm not sure what I would do without her as my primary doctor.
July 12, 2019
Because of timing with my visa, I was not able to see my typical provider. However, Dr. Van Kalsbeek and her staff were EXTREMELY helpful and respectful. They went out of their way to help me with a frustrating situation. I am so thankful for them and greatly appreciate their efforts and kindness! Awesome work and thanks for making me feel comfortable and at home!
July 10, 2019
All concerns not addressed, rushed at all times. Options not explained to the full extent. When making a decision side effects and/or benefits or not explained.
July 10, 2019
My appt was at 2:15; VanKalsbeek did not come in the room until 3.
July 05, 2019
They have been very thorough and I really appreciate that.
July 02, 2019
I saw Dr. Van Kalsbeek for the first time, and I really like her! She listened to me, I didn't feel rushed, and I genuinely enjoyed talking to her. Will go to her the next time I need to get in!
June 27, 2019
I am very comfortable conversing with this staff/doctor at my appointments about any concerns I may have.
June 21, 2019
My Dr.(s) are the best!!!!!
June 14, 2019
Waiting time was a little long (20 minutes after resident came in) to see the dr.
June 12, 2019
I am always impressed with Dr. VanKalsbeek's caring and compassionate attitude. She spends so much time with me during appointments that I feel she truly cares about me and my health as a person and not just the next patient. I also appreciate her willingness to work with future physicians and how she explains to them not only what she is doing but why and what else to look for. Truly a remarkable member of the medical community in my humble opinion!
June 11, 2019
After my surgery I chose to go to specialists. I've now returned to Dr. VanKalsbeek as she actually shows more respect and caring individual care. She is by far more intelligent in my treatment than any specialist.
June 08, 2019
I am not on medications, therefore, we did not have a conversation about the price of meds. I would and do recommend Dr. Vankalsbeek to friends and family. Absolutely everyone I encounter at this clinic is kind and caring.
June 07, 2019
It went just fine and everything was explained clearly to me.
June 05, 2019
I haven't been to Avera hospital for years and I had to fill out some paperwork, but when said paperwork was finished, we didn't really talk about what I circled/wrote. Otherwise, everyone was helpful and respectful to me.
June 05, 2019
Dr. Van Kalsbeek always goes over the top with her excellent care for her patient
May 23, 2019
I absolutely adore Dr. Van Kalsbeek and her nurses. However, calling to make an appointment or her a call back is very frustrating most of the time as the receptionist assigned to Dr. Van Kalsbeek rarely, if ever answers and you always have to leave a message in the answering machine.
May 23, 2019
I love my doctor and all the staff!!!
May 23, 2019
Dr. VanKalsbeek is one of the best!!!
May 18, 2019
Timing wasnt great my appt wasfor 1030 and finally got put a room at 1100 finally saw dr. at 1140 then had to do labs and out at 1225.
May 13, 2019
Dr. VanKalsbeek is caring and dedicated professional. She listens to her patients and treats them with dignity. She never rushes you or make you feel like a number.
May 11, 2019
Love this clinic and staff!
May 10, 2019
I feel valued as a patient. I recommend this clinic and my dr to many people
May 10, 2019
I'm a new patient at this clinic and I'm so glad to have been able to get in so quickly. The staff was phenomenal and amazing in all aspects
May 08, 2019
First time meeting this provider I think it will be a good fit!
May 07, 2019
Mammogram and lab staff ALWAYS do a superior job as well!
May 07, 2019
Carilyn is one of the best providers I have seen. She is knowledgable and fully engaged in identifying the issues and finding solutions. She not only listens, but she is kind and compassionate. I have had a wide variety of issues over the years and she has never judged me for my situation(s). She is amazing.
May 03, 2019
The lab work and mammogram were done the same day as my physical which was awesome!
May 02, 2019
Glad you're there when needed
May 01, 2019
Great to have all services I needed in one location.
April 30, 2019
In the past the wait time seemed longer than desirable, but yesterday was great, actually ahead of schedual. The staff has always been helpful and friendly.
April 28, 2019
Great doctor and nurses, overall I am very comfortable going here
April 26, 2019
I have always appreciated the care I receive at Avera 69th St. with Dr. Van Kalsbeek
April 25, 2019
Amazing! Everyone is friendly!!! And I receive great care
April 19, 2019
I appreciate the time my doctor spends with me and answers any questions I have.
April 16, 2019
The items asked about in the past 6 mos did not apply bc I haven't had to visit the Dr/clinic. Dr Van Kalsbeek is exceptional at what she does!
April 16, 2019
The tech who did my mammogram was excellent
April 15, 2019
I asked for a prescription refill for Claritin. Where I lived previously it was an Rx. Dr VanKalsbeek told me she would get me Rx - I needed one for synthroid also and I needed Flonase. She never told me that she wasn't writing a Rx for Claritin or folnase. When I got to the pharmacy the pharm tech & pharmacist could only find the Rx for synthroid and said it was for pick up the next day. The doctor didn't tell me that it wasn't for the same day either!! I called the dr office and the person who answered the phone told me in an unfriendly way that an Rx wasn't available for the Claritin or the Flonase. Still no one bothered to tell me that those are over the counter purchases. That would have been nice to know!! I have always received Claritin via a RX. Also, my appt for a physical was for 9:30. I was undressed and in a gown, sitting on the table until after 10:15 waitimg for the doctor. That's a long wait!!!
April 11, 2019
As always staff is very friendly and I'm very comfortable with my Doctor
April 11, 2019
Love my dr
April 06, 2019
The staff and Dr are very kind and helpful when I go to the clinic. I can get in very quickly.
March 29, 2019
this was my first visit to this clinic and it was very positive. really appreciate being able to do my mamogram right there. really like dr vankalsbeek and excited to begin care with her.
March 28, 2019
Really appreciate my Dr
March 25, 2019
dr is always 1 hour to 1.5 hrs behind schedule, hard to plan a visit and time away from work becomes an issue to plan accordingly
March 20, 2019
I feel so comfortable with everybody. A very welcoming clinic.
March 18, 2019
All went well!
March 17, 2019
Very satisfied with this clinic
March 09, 2019
Dr. Van Kelsbeek treats me as if I were a family member. When I have an appointment she always helps me get down from the table and opens the door. She always says "It was good to see you". Dr. Van Kelsbeek has provided the best medical experience I have received.
March 01, 2019
I am very happy that I tried this clinic. It is the best one, with the best Doctors that I have found in a long time.
