Dr Hultgren is hands down the best doctor I have ever had. She truly cares about her patients and it shows. Her knowledge is amazing. The only issue I ever have at the clinic is with the reception staff being somewhat rude. Otherwise the nurses and dr Hultgren are always amazing

From the moment I entered the building I was treated with the utmost respect and courtesy from admin, LPNs, the lab people, xray people and the receptionist. Dr Hultgren is the VERY BEST. The LPNs called with test results the same day. Admin called me the next day to clarify upcoming appts. I couldn't ask for a better medical facility! I trust them all.

The team and Dr. Hultgren are a rockstar team. I feel like they actually know me on a personal level and care about me and my entire family. They work fast, but you never feel rushed. My time isn't wasted, and they allow me to be pet of the care. I would give the team and Dr. Hultgren all 5 stars, an A+, 2 thumbs up, and a hearty round of applause for the care they are giving.

Dr. Hultgren treated me with such kindness. I came in just for a physical but had other concerns- I took up way more time than I should have but she never made me feel like I was. She was thorough and listened to all of my concerns with respect. I am so thankful for her and her team.

Dr Hultgren is wonderful! I'm so fortunate to have her as my PCP! Only low score I gave was for receptionist. Maybe she can try not to seem to annoyed while checking in patients. Maybe she was having a bad day?!

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.

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.
