i am very thankful for my care with this facility and the staff
January 29, 2019
I told recepionist i had other appts and needed to stay on schedule. She said i would be fine. But Flickema ran late and made me late for my next appt.. My time is just as important as those of the dr and nurses. I told dr and nurse both of following appts, and they said well, just call them. We are running late.

I recommend Dr. Flickema and the clinic to friends quite often.

Slow down when taking acupuncture needles out. Don't push down before pulling out. Ouch.

Very nice people - all of them!

Sometimes it gets a little loud in the hallway and from the nurses/provider area in the back of the hallway. It can be disrupting during acupuncture. Thank you.

I'm so pleased with the respect, care and true concern that is displayed every time I come in.

Im sure it's a great clinic for their regular services, but they just dont seem to have much enthusiasm for us in the bariatric program. Nice clinic and people though.
