Everyone has been wonderful I'm extremely pleased with our quality of care we've received from Avera . Thank you again!

I like that the doctor was willing to try me on a lower dose of medication and offered different treatment options, not just "This is what you have to do." He considers the patient's preferences as a factor of treatment and that's part of the reason I go to him.

Respect my questions and answered them. Would like to remind them to putt a little more smile in there voice. Know it gets busy but remind us all that a little smile or upbeat voice makes the appointment go better. Overall a good experience and will be back again.
