He was very thorough. Very encouraging! He was very friendly and took the time I needed with all of our questions! We were very thankful for his patience and was very specific on how to live forward with treatment. Also, was good about explaining the weeks ahead.

I was treated very well by all employees but I did feel embarrassed having to wear the paper shorts past the lobby area where people in the lobby were staring at my shorts. My only complaint.

I have recommended Dr Diamond to several people. He has taken the time to sort through my medical history & regards me as a whole person, which Has helped me immensely in my healing journey. He is extremely intelligent & always willing to listen to or research any question I have. He is extremely kind and a valuable representative for Avera Orthopedics.

I made a call to an Avera general phone number and was directed to urgent care on 77th .They were so kind to fit me in that afternoon. Wait time was 45 minutes but I was expecting that. Dr. Diamond is compassionate and prescribed a possible remedy with a follow up in 2 weeks.
