She was very excellent in meeting and talking with me. And what impressed me a lot also was the fact that she was wearing two masks on her face. That is showing that she cares about being safe around me. I was wearing a mask as well, but she impress me very much.

For being the only patient in the clinic waiting room, it took longer to be seen this time than when I was in the clinic last time and the waiting room full. Just curious what does that say to you
April 16, 2020
Yes. Katie was very, very, very knowledgeable way above my head. So anyway, she went a little bit too quick for me on some things and I asked about 3 prescriptions whether or not I need to get them refilled and I didn't get an answer on that. I just got one prescription. She changed completely, so I'll have to get back a hold of her and find out what the story is there for sure. But otherwise she did a great job. Thank you.

Kathryn was very concerned about me and listen to everything I said and I would recommend her for anybody. Thank you.
March 05, 2020
Everybody was very organized and I wasn't in there very long the answered. Every question that I had. I would say it was very very excellent.

After seeing the report on Avera Chart, there were some things mentioned that we didn't even talk about. There seemed to be some confusion as to what I said and what she understood me saying. Very confusing. Some things were mentioned that we didn't even talk about. After I read the report I began to wonder what she was referring to.

I have always had a good experience at NCH. Had to cancel my appointment because of a blizzard and they were able to get me in less than a week after the storm. I appreciated that, Thank you
January 24, 2020
I got my appointment time wrong due to a change caused by the weather, I got there early and they still got me in. Great people to work with!

Received a follow-up phone call/survey, but was unable to complete; the call terminated for some unknown reason. I had hoped to comment on DNP Kathryn Adams in that call, As usual, she was most professional and helpful! I felt as though the exam was quite thorough, All my questions/concerns were well addressed. A real pro!
January 16, 2020
Everyone I met and interacted with on this visit was very kind and helpful. I had a very good visit.

December 13, 2019
Friendly and efficient.
December 09, 2019
I was a little frustrated that they didn't have orders for my blood work. I tried to track down if the orders were correct and finally someone acknowledged the orders and my blood was drawn. The lack of communication was frustrating.
December 05, 2019
Very thorough
December 02, 2019
I was very impressed with my appointment with Kathryn. She did an excellent job. Very good demeanor, very calm and attentive and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a cardiologist.
November 29, 2019
Katie and Megan were very attentive to me when I was there for my stress test. Katie even double checked my results with a couple of the great cardiologist on duty that day. Megan made sure I know exactly what was happening during the test so that there were no surprises. Everyone was easy to talk to and I felt like they genuinely concerned for my health. Not that I look forward to these stress tests, but I truly look forward to working this these fine professionals the next time I need one. Thank you all!

She was professional, very helpful and explained things in a way that I can understand and listened to me and the problems that I had to share with her. I appreciated what she had done and what she said and I can't think of anything negative to say about her at all.

The appointment was great from the time we walked in the door. Great place and great care

Since discoverinig my cardiac issues back in 2004, I have experienced constantly excellent doctoring, nursing, and medical care from every professional on your staff that has assisted me. I am one grateful individual for the existence of North Central Heart.

The Avera Heart Hospital was recovering from the recent tornado. And so there were a lot of things that were there before but had to be remodeled and were in the process of that and the staff was very accommodating. Our check in went very smoothly. We didn't have to wait to get everything in line. I had brought all of the materials requested before my appointment. We were in the waiting room for a short period of time but they were very busy because they're short rooms due to this recent tornado and we were escorted to their the room. Right away the doctor came in this was the physician's assistant for Dr. Scott.
October 18, 2019
I don't like surveys. If I have any problems with my provider I will talk to that person about it.
October 18, 2019
Made my visit with knowledgeable staff great
October 17, 2019
She was very cordial, and she explained everything to us very well. If we had questions she answered a mall and we like her very well. Thank you.
October 03, 2019
I don't like putting in a small room and wait 1 hour for anyone to come in and say they if if there if you're having a problem come in and tell me. Don't leave me set there for one hour, because next time if I will not sit there one hour.
September 25, 2019
Everyone top notch. Very very professional
August 30, 2019
I have been going to this facility for several years and have always been treated with great respect.
August 30, 2019
They tried very hard to get me, continue me going and so I didn't have to sit and wait for everything, everything was just kind of ran smoothly and I thank them for that.
August 26, 2019
I didn't like the sitting there an hour, and 10 minutes and nobody came in to tell me nothing and then when they did come in, they said all I hear you're in a hurry. So I do not care to see her again. Thank you.
August 21, 2019
My only thing is this survey should have been done some time besides 6 o'clock when people are eating supper. Thank you. Bye.
August 19, 2019
Hey, I thought that Katie Adams was the one that I talked to there and I thought she was very, very nice and very good. And I did get - get good information on everything and felt like it was - it was a good - good...exam and everything so that I'm hoping that things are going along well now and I - I was worried about my dental appointment with the oral surgeon and it sounds like that (INAUDIBLE) okay, and then I - then I might have to check back with her again, but - but it was very good. So yeah. Thank you.
August 14, 2019
We waited well past our scheduled appointment time but were very impressed with the knowledge and amount of time spent with us once Ms Adams, DNP, came into the exam room. Will be pleased to continue with her!
August 14, 2019
Yes, hi. Katy did a very excellent job and she told me she was going to check and see if I needed to pull an evaluation but, and she decided I didn't. They called me to schedule it today which is fine. I was just thinking if you wanted to be really, really excellent service, somebody would've been at least able to tell me exactly why it was being ordered. Thank you.
August 08, 2019
She was very helpful. Last visit was very enjoyable. Yes, if anyone ask me I'd recommend it. So yeah, it was it was pleasurable for what it was. So, thank you.
August 01, 2019
Yeah, my appointment was at 11 and she never came in until 11:30 to sit there for a half hour. Then the one that was in charge of setting up my monitor seemed like he was more interested in probably getting to lunch then setting up my monitor.
July 31, 2019
Even though I had a different CNP than I normally have she gave practically seamless support. She was knowledgeable about my health issues and explained a new med to me. All staff was friendly and there was hardly any wait time.
July 17, 2019
Always the best treatment by everyone at NCH!
