January 30, 2021
The only disappointing part of my experience was having to wait nearly 40 minutes to see my doctor after the nurse took my vitals. I realize they are busy and partly my fault for scheduling a p.m. appt. instead of a.m. appt.
January 29, 2021

Greta overall visit. She cared and listened to me the entire time.
January 22, 2021
When I went in for my son's well care visit the doctor was running late. I understand that this happens regularly. However we were not informed that she was running late. We then had to wait an additional 30 minutes for my son's shots. The nurses at that time were not very nice and left a bruise on my son's leg from the shots.
January 21, 2021
It went super smooth and easy!

Dr. Hultgren and her team are amazing. I have been with them for a little while and they always take each of my concerns and my concerns for my family very seriously!

Her and her team have been through a lot with me - they are my medical family for sure!!!

November 25, 2020
I'm always made to feel like my concerns matter, and then reassured if they aren't or what to do if they are a health concern.
November 24, 2020
I appreciate the time and care put into my care. Dr Hultgren always asks how I am doing as a whole and I feel loved and cared for as a person and not a patient. Being heard and listened to allows me the confidence to be treated as a whole person and not just a number. I just had a tragic experience and she took the time to really listen and ask how I'm doing. My mental health is just as important as my physical health and I appreciate this more than I can describe in words.
November 21, 2020
Everyone I was in contact with at my recent appointment was respectful, caring and friendly - great job!

It was nice to finally be able to get a non virtual visit. Dr. Hultgren seemed really easy to talk to as was her assistant. I felt after the visit that the direction had switched back in the right direction where before I felt it was leading down an incorrect path.
