Had a few more questions but the time (?) ran out.
August 31, 2022
Everyone was very nice and they were all very helpful. They are all very good at what they do.
August 29, 2022
From the time Shaun, the nurse left me and said that Katie would be in in just a few minutes. 23 minutes past before Katie came into the room.
August 11, 2022
(INAUDIBLE) very, very pleased with everything with North Central heart, I guess, from the experience walking in the door, to all the way through the preliminary, and meeting with Kathryn very good, and definitely would, in fact, we made an appointment for next year, so, appreciate everything. Thank you.
August 04, 2022
You're very efficient, prompt. I felt I had all my needs covered. Thank you.
July 29, 2022
Katy Adams is very professional, but also very personable, and easy to talk with. She is genuinely concerned with her patients, and takes her time with them and doesn't make us feel rushed!
July 28, 2022
I very much appreciate they really didn't waste any of my time. They were right on schedule. I was I checked in on time, and they followed the schedule that they had. The itinerary, they had set up for me and I appreciate that.

I was very happy with the care and it was very, very good. Thank you.
June 24, 2022
Hi Katie was very professional and caring and listened to everything I had to say and talked. And she told me things that I could understand. I had a good very good experience there with everyone that helped me out. There was a electrocardiogram given very very pleasant person as well and just even the service at the desk and stuff was very polite and professional. Thank you very much.
June 22, 2022
My experience was in all issues positive.
June 08, 2022
I really trust everyone there. Thank you
May 26, 2022
Everyone was so kind and helpful! Thanks
May 19, 2022
My visit there was very satisfactory and...and the doctor explained everything very well. The receptionists were friendly. Greatly appreciated my care there. Thank you.
May 18, 2022
I am very pleased with the service I received and Kathryn Adams is an outstanding professional and I just would recommend this North Central heart to anyone, but I had a very good experience.
May 13, 2022
I spent 3hours on this appointment due to some mixed up scheduling that I was unaware of. I had an echo at 9:15 and was not told that my Dr. appointment was not till 11:15,leaving me to set for another 1and 1/2 hours waiting.
May 05, 2022
I am frustrated with the scheduling of procedures. I would expect that they could schedule a procedure within 24 hours of a doctors order and it is now Friday evening and I have not heard when I'm going to have tests or if they are even going to happen at all next week. I it is anxiety producing when a facility is not more prompt at responding to doctor's orders.
April 20, 2022
Process was very timely and staff was very professional and kind.
March 25, 2022
The appointment was on time, not a long wait.
March 24, 2022
I been to North Central Heart a lot of times & very have always been very helpful & kind.
March 24, 2022
Just listening to the heart with past history seems like dr. Didn't want to bother. If you have yearly check ups, shouldn't it be just that? A check up.
March 14, 2022
I like the fact that you were very timely in processing everything, and so I didn't have to scituate.
March 03, 2022
North Central Heart staff members literally have held my heart in their hands. For this I am forever greatfull for the time they have provided for me to see my family grow to maturity and bless me with all my Grandchildren. They are truly "like olive shoots around my table"!
March 02, 2022
Katie Adams is awesome. She comes across as genuine, caring, and provided me as much time as I wanted. She does a great job.
February 25, 2022
Always a positive experience. Great people.
February 23, 2022
Hello, a written satisfaction survey that you sent that would be helpful. So I could explain from beginning to end how I felt being new to South Dakota and being seen in your system. I think Dr. Waterberry is excellent. I think the nurse practitioner I saw yesterday, was excellent but there's some things that didn't go so well from my firs experience with Avera. Thank you. Bye.
February 18, 2022
Everyone there that had anything to do with my appointment, they were so courteous, they were the nicest people. Also when I had the pacemaker put in, everybody- every person, courteous, pleasant. Really, really, really nice people. Don't change anything. Okay.
February 17, 2022
I waited for over 40 minutes to see dr and she never did show up....I would be more pleased if after 20 minutes past my appointment that someone.....anyone....would of told me the dr was running late.....instead was left wondering what was going on....not very pleased with the way things worked out
February 17, 2022
The front desk. They didn't get the response that I was there, even though I told them and so they didn't register me right away. But the one gal notice Me sitting there and didn't come and ask.
February 14, 2022
I like Katie.
February 07, 2022
Thank you!!
February 03, 2022
I felt that the job was done really well and I'd come back again when and if I need to, so very good. Thank you.
January 20, 2022
In addition to knowing all the technical things, Katie is friendly and willing to interact with me in a light-hearted manner--that sets me at ease. She cares. I do my best to be a "low-maintenance" patient, and so visit this clinic only once a year...and plan on keeping that schedule. But if I DO end up there, I know that I will be in good hands.
January 10, 2022
I had a very, very good experience at North Central Heart Hospital. I had many tests done. Everybody was very kind, very caring, and I felt like I had known them and met them before, and I had not. And everybody explained everything to me, and it was a good experience, and I thank you very much. A shout out for all the nurses and staff. It was a good experience. Thank you.
January 05, 2022
She's an hour late for her appointment. I had to wait an hour.
December 23, 2021
Everything was fine.
December 22, 2021
Made me feel comfortable right away.
December 17, 2021
I really appreciate the good care that Kathryn Adams and the team gave me.
December 16, 2021
When I was over to the Heart Hospital, it was absolutely wonderful. Everybody was so helpful and so nice and concerned about my health and Dr. Everybody all the technicians and everybody. So I couldn't say enough good about him there fabulous crew so very happy to have been there. Thank you.
December 16, 2021
Everyone is very friendly.
December 15, 2021
Katie listened to all my concerns & put me at ease. She is very friendly yet professional. Didn't feel rushed at all. I will certainly continue to be treated under her care!
December 09, 2021
I did not see Dr. Adams my provider. I only saw a lab technician who took my blood and sent me on. Thank you.
December 08, 2021
Yes, I would like to say that the care that I received was adequate, but I had to wait for 45 minutes in a room. And I finally entered the hallway and asked if I had been forgotten. So I think this type of thing needs to be corrected immediately because it's very difficult to sit unattended for 45 minutes.
December 03, 2021
Your wait times are terrible waited over 50 minutes for my 10 am appointment
November 29, 2021
Very good care
November 04, 2021
I am always treated with respect and feel all of my concerns are taken seriously and answered
October 29, 2021

October 27, 2021
Every thing was fine.
September 22, 2021
Always a good experience at North Central Heart.
September 15, 2021
Yes, I'm very well satisfied, but I called today to request that they emailed me another report of our visit. So that I thought I printed it off today, but I lost it. So I am requesting another report by this email or by this message. And I thank you for that.
September 15, 2021
Very satisfied
September 15, 2021
Kathryn Adams was wonderful. She was polite. She was friendly, and she did really seem to care. I enjoyed my visit, and we got stuff done and I found out some things. I needed to know. Thank you.
September 09, 2021
Dr Katie Adams is the best
September 08, 2021
I felt my doctor was very thorough. Was very satisfied with my appointment
September 03, 2021
Yes, I really appreciated the fact that they managed to get my my scan put in while I was waiting for something else. So that my time wasn't as long as it could have been. I really appreciated that. Thank you so much. Goodbye.
September 02, 2021
We didn't have to wait long in the waiting room, but we waited in the exam room for almost one hour to see our health professional.
August 27, 2021

Kathryn Adams went above and beyond what I would expect from a professional.
August 06, 2021
Everything worked fine. We're pretty much on schedule, and I was very satisfied with the procedure by the test that I took and by the questions by the provider. So, thank you.
August 05, 2021
Oh, yes, she was very good and she talked all my concerns that I needed, and ... and we felt like she was very thorough, and spent a lot of time with us and ... and we were very happy with her service. Okay. Goodbye. I think I was supposed to just hang up.
August 02, 2021
Yes, Katie was very personable and really cared about all the questions that I had and she answered everything and it was a great visit. Thank you.
August 02, 2021
I was very impressed with the efficiency of my appointment with Kathryn the other day and I hardly had any wait time before I was called in to visit with her and what I thought, she listened very carefully. She provided information to me that I was either asking about or was needing to know and she did not make me feel like she was hurried at all in the appointment. I felt very satisfied with that. So yes, I'd be happy to recommend North Central to anyone. Thank you.
July 30, 2021
knowledgeable and friendly people
July 22, 2021
I appreciated understanding of my disability of being visually impaired. I'm not totally blind, but when they realized, or when I let staff know that I had a hard time seeing they were more than welcome to accommodate me and direct me through step by step and the customer care was awesome. Appreciate it. Thank you.
July 22, 2021
Excellent care as always!
July 22, 2021
they did an excellent job
July 01, 2021
Yes, it was an excellent experience. And all of the nurses that waited on me, and the PA did an excellent job.
July 01, 2021
I got a letter in the mail today with a tone of numbers on it from the gentleman that read the EKG or whatever you call it and no explanation or nothing but just a ton of numbers, I have no clue what it is. It would be helpful if you guys at least put on there what it is, or what it's for and what it should be.
June 30, 2021
I'm very well satisfied and they were thorough. Thank you.
June 30, 2021

I appreciated the attention that Katie Adams gave to my health condition. She was aware of my health history, and could answer all of my questions and she was concerned about my health. She was not rushed at all in helping us and I appreciate her, as a as a medical advisor.
