August 26, 2019
I waited for my scheduled appountment which was at 10am and i wasnt seen till 1110am. I felt that was a little long to wait for a scheduled appointment with a provider who doesnt have any emergencies to get to.
August 24, 2019
I waited 40 minutes beyond my appointment time. That's too long.
August 24, 2019
All just great
August 17, 2019
August 15, 2019
Great receptionist !
August 15, 2019
I waited in exam room for 40 minutes between discussion with nurse and doctor arriving. No explanation given. Truly do like this office and it's medical staff. Am assuming the delay was unavoidable and not a normal occurrence
August 14, 2019

Thank you!
August 02, 2019
Only the announcement that I was 13 minutes late (not according to what was written on my calendar) seemed a little abrupt and harsh. Everything else was fine, and only the receptionist seemed unhappy about my time of arrival.
July 31, 2019
Dr. Nelson is definitely an asset to the Avera Community.
July 30, 2019
Overall positive experience e.
July 27, 2019
This was a very positive experience with your clinic.
July 26, 2019
MD was very proactive. Started required diagnostic procedures immediately.
July 25, 2019
Staff was friendly as well as the nurse and doctor. No problems whatsoever.
July 24, 2019
Always made comfortable. I didn't mean to skip a previous question & can't go back.
July 24, 2019
I was brought back by the nurse to the exam room and checked in, where I then sat for over an hour waiting for Dr. Nelson. When Dr. Nelson entered the room after an hour long wait, there was no explanation or apology given to why! I understand that things do get behind and have no problem with that but it would of been nice even if the nurse popped her head in to the exam room and said that Dr.Nelson was a little behind, especially because this appointment had to be rescheduled least
July 13, 2019
Very professional.
July 11, 2019
They got me in right away due to a cancellation, that was appreciated!
July 09, 2019
Appointments stay close to scheduled time

June 13, 2019

June 13, 2019
Good experience. Everyone was kind and personable.
June 10, 2019
Dr. Nelson is extremely competent and very personable--a great combination. She did a wonderful job with my two skin cancer surgeries, one of which involved significant reconstruction of my upper lip. I felt very confident in her care.
June 09, 2019
Everyone I came in contact with was friendly and provided good information. However, I left feeling like I don't fully understand my condition, situation, or treatment options. While this is business as usual for everyone at Avera, my condition continues to evolve so much is new to me and creates anxiety.
June 08, 2019
Very good
June 06, 2019
Very friendly staff, nurse, and Doctor!
June 06, 2019

May 09, 2019
I live 90 miles outside SF & Dr. Nelson has gone out of her way to see some of followup is being done locally rather than me having to drive back to SF..Unlike some of your GI Drs who think waisting my time and thiersn for a ten minute "office" visit which could have easily been done over the phone.
May 08, 2019
Dr Nelson and everyone associated with this facility are do a wonderful job.
May 06, 2019
everyone is so friendly
May 05, 2019
I find myself unable to recommend a single sensible improvement to the quality of care and expertise I encountered, so I am left to suggest that may be you could install a draft Guinness dispenser next to the coffee machine. Thank you for your outstanding excellence and care.
May 03, 2019
