July 26, 2019
I waited for over 45 min in the doctors office for her and in that time no one came in to tell me she was running late or anything and then I tried talking to her about something else but she was already standing and inching her way to the door so I never talked to her about some other problems I was dealing with.

Dr. Hultgren is wonderful. She see's my whole family and treats us all individual. She makes me feel like I am her only patient! Fabulous MD. While I was in the hospital she made special trips in to see me and did not need to. I felt very cared for.
July 11, 2019
From the staff in the lab, registration, scheduling, nurses, and of course, Dr. Hultgren, my experience with this group and clinic has been nothing less than amazing. I feel valued every time I walk in the door. I feel like the nurses and Dr. Hultgren always take the time to walk through questions I have and are well educated on anything that comes up during my visit.

May 24, 2019
I went in for a physcial, 2nd physical i have had, the scope of the physical is not as intense, was not as involved as my other provider so I'm wondering if enough was done to assess my health on an ongoing basis. All that was done was a conversation, listen to my lungs and what seems like a limited amount of blood work.
May 23, 2019
I have the best/honest family doctor my family could ask for.

February 24, 2019
Of the times that I have seen Dr. Hultgren, she has never been on time to my appointment. I feel that a 15 minute grace period is acceptable, however she begins my appointment after that time- usually 25-35 minutes late even when the appointment is in the morning.

I love that Avera cares for my needs, physical,mentally, and spiritually!

I felt like more could have been done, tested, rx'd etc. I also felt, from the doctor, that I was being scolded and that I had the flu because it was my fault I did not get the flu vaccine this year. That was not appreciated.

I was very disappointed that I had to wait 45 minutes to see Dr Hultgren with no explanation for the wait from her or the nursing staff. Put in a cold room with nothing on & froze. This is the 2nd year this has happened. If she is running behind the staff knows let the patient know don't put me back in the room to freeze.

Everyone at the clinic is very respectfully and very heipfull. I recall a time when all was very respectful kind and helpful
