Dr Diamond continues to impress me with his so-called bedside manner. When he enters the exam room, he has already reviewed your chart, he reviews what has been done and explains the next potential step after listing to the patient and considers what the patient wants to do moving forward. He truly is one of the best doctors I have ever been to in this regard. And I have recommended him to others. I hope he stays at Avera.
