March 06, 2021
Always have had a good experience at this clinic, from Dr. Van Kalsbeek to the nurses, to the staff and lab.
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

Dr. Van Kalsbeek is a terrific doctor who clearly cares about me.
February 03, 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.
January 30, 2021

November 23, 2020
The receptionist are consitantly unfriendly upon arival and check-in. I have experienced this not only at the most recent visit but every time. Some nurses are more friendly than others. I continue to come because I like my doctor, Dr Van Kalsbeek, and have a relationship with her but the rest of my expeirence I am typically not satifiied with. The wait time was very long. From registering at front desk to when I was done it was an hour and a half. I had no lab work, etc. The wait time was basically all back in the room waiting for the doctor. Once I saw the doctor I did not feel she was rushed.
November 21, 2020
The people there are kind and caring. My nurse was really wonderful and my doctor is and always has been the very BEST in every way.

November 10, 2020
We have been very pleased
November 10, 2020
The religious decor and overtines make me uncomfortable and unable to speak freely with my medical providers concerning all of my relevant medical needs as I fear judgement or refusal of service.
November 08, 2020
Slow process. I was scheduled for 3:30 and didnt see doctor until 4:20. Then had to wait and wait for flu shot as nurses were visiting in their work area.
November 01, 2020
Great doctor with excellent skills and bedside manner.
October 30, 2020
The doctor didn't just tell me the plan, but actively involved me with the decision making.
October 21, 2020
appreciate the doctor and nurses trying to figure out what is going on with me and not jumping to conclusions
September 25, 2020

Always a very long wait for the Dr.
September 14, 2020
Felt rushed and didn't get to all my questions as I saw the doctor an hour past my scheduled appt time.
September 11, 2020
Very courteous. I was able to get an appt the same day
September 03, 2020
I was happy that i actually got a decent amount of time with doctor. In the past she's always seemed in too much of a rush to be thorough.
August 29, 2020
The psr was courteous & understanding due to recent life change. The resident was so kind and patient and took time to listen. Dr VKB was wonderful, caring, listening to my needs. The mamo tech was so professional yet compassionate. And the lab tech was so personable yet real. I hate coming to the doctor but almost everyone I encountered put me at ease and was caring about me as a person.at a stressful time for me this was a Great experience !! Thank you for representing Avera so well!
August 28, 2020

I love Dr. Carilyn Van Kalsbeek, she's always willing to listen to my concerns and explains everything! Also the staff was very courteous!
August 09, 2020
I was not a fan of the dr I saw.
August 06, 2020
A long wait (though I understand this is a busy time in the health field). Also, the nurse did not tell me beforehand that a male resident would be visiting with me until he walked in when I specifically requested a female doctor. (She came later.)
August 06, 2020
I waited an hour in the exam room without any filling me in as to what was going on
August 01, 2020
The receptionist at the front desk is the absolute best!
July 31, 2020
I would suggest whResident comes in room prior to Drs visit that he/she should introduce him/herself. With no introduction, it was rather strange. Very kind person though.
July 29, 2020
The wait time was long during this visit. Took 2 hours from start to finish at the clinic which was very long
July 28, 2020
All staff were very friendly and helpful!!
July 27, 2020
Doc Carilyn has always taken only the best care of me and my family.
July 24, 2020
I am consistently happy with the care I receive at the 69th and Western clinic.
July 23, 2020
Dr. Van Kalsbeek is caring, genuine, and takes my health seriously. I'm glad to have someone I trust care for me.
July 23, 2020
Ive been going to Dr. VAN for many years for a reason. She is my favorit. If she is unavailable i always am comfortable to use other doctor's at this location as well.
July 19, 2020
It seems I usually wait in the room 30 minutes before the doctor comes in.
July 18, 2020
Dr. Van Kalsbeek and her staff go above and beyond to care for and accommodate me!
July 18, 2020
The doctor was attentive and offered great advice on my daily living experiences.
July 16, 2020
The wait time is always to long; i wait time be seen by the nurse, then another long wait to see the doctor.
July 15, 2020
The receptionist have always been great, and typically so are the nurses. Havent had great luck with my doctor - i feel like she either has too many patients or doesnt care anymore.
July 14, 2020
Very professional
July 14, 2020
I feel I can trust dr to take care of me to the best of her ability
July 09, 2020
I was impressed by the corona virus preventative care!
July 08, 2020
Waiting time for appointment. EX: 8:10am appt and had to wait 30 min to be seen. Unacceptable for that time of day.
July 08, 2020
Dr. VanKalsbeek has always gone out of her way to be trusted and helpful. Couldn't ask for a better Dr.
July 03, 2020
I needed to get in to see my doctor because of pain and they fit me in.
June 26, 2020
I appreciate all that Dr. Van Kalsbeek and her team do to cover my healthcare needs. They make the visits so pleasant, and make me feel that my health, both mental and physical, is important to them.
June 26, 2020
People are always smiling and have a sense of humor which is so important .
June 18, 2020
Dr. VAN Kalsbeek
June 14, 2020
If my provider is not available I like that I can see one of the others ASAP.
June 13, 2020
My doctor is patient and lets me have control over what she suggests and what i think is right. She wins this time. LOL I really like and respect my doctor.
June 12, 2020
Dr. Van Kalsbeek is an excellent Family Practice doctor. Thankful to have her as my doctor.
June 11, 2020
All was good except the wait times were long. Didn't see doctor until 45 minutes after my scheduled appointment time. All totaled, mammo, appointment and lab draw took 2 1/2 hours!
June 02, 2020
Whenever I have visited this office I have had to wait upwards of 30 minutes in my own room waiting for my provider. I do not find that acceptable. I do think the amount of time taken during the appointment is good to go over any questions or concerns, but aside from my first appointment, I have never been able to see this provider any sooner than 30 minutes of waiting in either the waiting room or the individual room and I do not find that acceptable.
May 21, 2020
Great, very kind
May 20, 2020
She is wonderful! She listened to what I was saying and I felt heard. She also explained what labs she was ordering, what they were for, and why she was ordering them. She went above and beyond and called me after hours to go over my labs and to go over a prescription she was ordering for me. Highly recommend Dr. Van Kalsbeek!
May 20, 2020
I was there for an emergency and the nurses were exceptional from both a professional and personal point of view.
May 20, 2020
Been with Avera for numerous years and have always been treated with the utmost respect. I never felt rushed. Dr Van Kalsbeek is very compassionate and knowledgeable about my health concerns.
May 19, 2020
Doctor and nurses great. Receptionist was curt on this visit but that was never the case before.
May 14, 2020
Only complaint is that it was one hour wait before I saw my doctor.
