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

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.

Dr. Nelson is definitely an asset to the Avera Community.

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

Very professional.
