I was afraid I wouldn't get any kind of help so toughed out my injury uUntil I couldn't handle Motrin and Tylenol anymore and both visits helped me and I'm thankful for Dr. Petersen. You all are heroes and excellent care takers. You put my situation first and I appreciate that. Thank you Avera team you all are blessed by God himself to care for us your people.

I am so happy Ericka is back. She truly cares about my kids and takes time to listen and follow up with all of my questions. Avera is lucky to have her. I have been in a lot lately with my boys and the nursing staff are caring and take their time. I truly feel like a family and not just another patient.

Great bedside manner. Very knowledgeable and informative and respectful, especially when I was declining recommendations of care. There was also a student Nurse Practitioner on the day I was seen who also shown all of the same professional characteristics. Spoke to 2 different nurses or medical assistants about concerns as well and same as above. Very pleased with Avera
