The Dr told me they were moving. The Dr was under the assumption that the office/clerks were telling people but they didn't say anything to me regarding the move.

Melissa is amazing. I went for a physical but was also experiencing grief from my Dad's death. She made me feel comfortable and that it was ok to still be upset and sad and that it was normal. She also helped me realize the headaches I've been having were tension headaches because my back and neck are so sore. Melissa truly cares about the whole person and not just a "patient" and I truly appreciate that! I will continue to see her for all my needs.

I was unable to get through per phone to clinic to try to make an appointment. I tried twice one day and tried twice the next day. I finally gave up and came in to the clinic to make an appointment. If you want the business, you need to have enough people actually working the phones to be available to your clients. So instead of cutting corners and working with bare bones staff, make the good business decision to have enough people working to handle your current business. You have excellent nurses and medical personnel but if an appointment can't be made, it defeats the point of caring for your clients. Definitely will affect your scores of quality of excellence. I have heard these same complaints from other people too!

I do not like not being able to talk to someone when calling for an appointment. I will sit on hold FOREVER only to be sent to voicemail- that absolutely drives me nuts! Otherwise no complaints. Melissa Scotting is hands down, the BEST provider at Avera Marshall- if it wasn't for her I wouldn't be able to trust local care for my daughter but she has provided that trust.

Melissa is amazing. I always feel listened to when I see her - she doesn't rush me through anything and takes time to hear my concerns and adapt her plan to meet them.

Melissa Scotting has provided use with excellent care as my son continues to grow. I highly recommend her to anyone, pediatrics or adults, as she takes time to get to know you and extremely knowledgable in many areas!
