The electronic system the nurse used to input all of my information (medical history/symptoms/allergies/etc.) Seemed clunky, time consuming, and not user friendly. This had nothing to do with the nurses ability, she was doing the best with what she had to work with.

Dr. Richardson is simply an amazing physician. The staff is fully competent and compassionate. I am treated with the utmost respect. The Lab people are awesome. The person I had yesterday in the Lab and was so friendly and effective! I am truly grateful to have the whole Avera clinic so close to my home. Thank you.

My service was very prompt and I am very pleased with the way Avera "does business." Dr. Richardson is pretty cool too, but all the doctors and PA's have been very helpful.

I went in for a sinus infection and Dr Richardson check in over and look at ears and throat and tried the nose but tot was to bad. Listen to lung. Told me what extra meds to take and emailed some other meds and I was done. In and out. Also hit me a name if another dr I need. He does great work. I his always willing to listen.

good service got me in promptly last time
April 06, 2019
When I returned for my appointment, I stopped at the desk on 2nd floor to check in. I had to wait a couple minutes, as the receptionist was doing something on her cell phone. My nurse was very pleasant and respectful.
April 04, 2019
Great staff to talk with.
April 02, 2019
The appointment system is inefficient. Never called and talked to someone. Always had to leave and message and wait for a call back. If messages are exchanged, informations was not always clear.
April 02, 2019

March 19, 2019
it seems obvious to ME, they're under-staffed & over-scheduled, so often behind schedule a bit
March 16, 2019
Very happy

March 01, 2019
Wait time a little long when you scheduled the first appointment after lunch.
March 01, 2019
Nurse did not send test list to lab the day before appointment as requested and called in.
February 28, 2019
Everyone was very congenial.
February 26, 2019
Little disappointed in how long I waited in the tx room. I waited an hour before the PA came in to send me to the lab, then another 1/2 hour to be told what I knew, that I needed an antibiotic .
February 26, 2019
I appreciate the entire staff's caring ways towards my Mother. They are always so kind & respectful of her.
February 26, 2019
I have the utmost respect for the Avera clinic. I literally do not have a single negative thing to say. The lab workers are awesome as well.
February 26, 2019
Not that it was a problem, but two people told me I would be seeing Dr. Richardson. I actually saw the I think she is the nurse practitioner. I liked her.
February 09, 2019
Dr Richardson is a great physican
February 08, 2019
I was super happy with the service I received. I was a walk in patient and they fit me in right away. I was there less than 45 minutes and was super pleased. Thank you for providing enough help at the Pierre clinic.
February 06, 2019
They need to send reminders the day before appointments.
January 29, 2019
The receptionist that made the appointment was quite rude. She basically scolded me for not being able to take the first appointment she offered me (I was going to be out of town).
January 28, 2019
I feel Dr Richardson is to the point, explains things clearly, and answers my questions promptly
