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 very caring and always takes time with my daughter to make her feel comfortable which makes the appt go smoothly!
July 15, 2019
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!

Provider and nurse provided excellent care. Would still like to see patients escorted back to rooms
June 20, 2019
all are very personable and easy to talk too.
June 11, 2019
I felt heard as a mother and given options to care for my concerns regarding my child.
June 07, 2019
The front desk receptionist where very helpful and friendly

The phone system needs improvement. It's not acceptable to have to leave a message every time you call just for the receptionist. You shouldn't have to spend a half hour just trying to talk to someone from reception.

Melissa Scotting was excellent! She is not our normal provider, but all of my kids want to see her again!!
May 26, 2019

I absolutely love my doctor she has always been a great doctor to ALL of my family and i wouldn't trade her for anyone else. Thank you so much Melissa for everything you do for us you are the BEST!!
May 16, 2019
The check in process needs improvement. It often takes too long. Physically the set up doesn't make sense as the three stations can't visually see if anyone is waiting.
April 27, 2019
Melissa Scotting is an amazing doctor, she's very kind.
April 24, 2019
Great staff
April 19, 2019
when I call in the call is very rarely returned it is no use to call in and leave a message
April 13, 2019
The telephone system is terrible! It allows you to hold for 5 minutes then cuts you off! Definitely need more people to answer phones?! Or at least allow to hold until someone answers so you dont get put to end of line when you have to keep calling back because youve been cut off! Leaving a message is not ideal when you just want to talk to a person on your time...not when they when they call back and am busy with something else! Tried for 1 hr and 10 minutes one day to get an appt.
April 13, 2019
I absolutely love Melissa Scotting for our primary care physician for our family. She is wonderful. As is her nurse! And her student has been wonderful also.
April 12, 2019
all around great
April 04, 2019
Melissa Scotting and her nurse are wonderful. Both of then listened carefully, understood my anxiety and treated me with great care. They deserve recognition for doing a wonderful job. Registration was really great to work with too.

You need more front desk staff. They work their butts off
March 05, 2019
I love seeing Melissa Scotting as my families provider. She takes the time to listen and explains things in a way someone can understand. Her nurse for the day, the nurse was also wonderful!
February 24, 2019
Melissa Scotting's calm and caring personality kept me relaxed for a successful procedure. I am looking forward to seeing her again for my health needs.
February 16, 2019
The wait time when calling the clinic is extremely long. Calling the clinic is an arduous process. I waited on hold for 20 minutes and then was disconnected. The option to leave a message and receive a return phone is not one that works for my schedule. My work schedule is not conducive to personal phone interruptions.
February 14, 2019
I just really appreciate everything you do thank you
February 12, 2019
Melissa and her staff do a great job of listening to you and work to find the best possible treatment.
