Courtney is incredible. She was patient and calm with me when I was emotional. She hugged my twice and truly cares. The midwives are all incredible and I trust them with my care.

I finally felt listened to and she gave me different options that I wasn't given with previous providers. I left the appointment feeling like I had a plan in place and that I finally have hope.

Courtney Heynen is amazing! I value her opinion and expertise for my healthcare. She is incredibly knowledgeable, takes her time to research, evaluate and explain her plan of care and ensure WE are I agreement. Her attentiveness and compassion are evident during every interaction. Courtney provides not only medical care but holistic/spiritual care for her patients, and carries out Avera's mission by being the hands and feet of Jesus. I cannot say enough great things about Courtney.

I have never felt more seen by a provider than I have in my visits with Courtney Heynen. She truly cares about her patients and their well being beyond just the medical reason you are there for. She is a top notch healthcare worker.

Courtney and her staff are like the unicorns of providers in the medical field! Everyone was so compassionate & kind. They were attentive & listened to what has been going on taking that information to form a plan of care. I've never left a visit so confident in a care team before, they did such a great job my only regret was not coming here sooner :) what a phenomenal team!

I could not express how much I love Avera's midwife Courtney Heynen! She goes above and beyond for her patients and does not just treat like a patient, she truly makes us feel like a friend or family. And that is a huge value! I'd recommend her to anyone in a heart beat!

This team is amazing but I do feel like the midwife didn't spend much time with me and I had lots of questions about my care that I ended up writing an email about since they didn't have time to answer them in the office. Still waiting on a response.
