I had to sit out in the waiting room quite some time, and I will I don't mind that, but I didn't know why and if if a nurse, but it does come out and said, you know, Dr. Olson is delayed. Then I would have been more calm, but and then the nurse came out finally and she was very rushed and just kind of through things around and did my EKG and I wasn't, I wasn't real happy with that. But otherwise everything was great. Thank you very much.

I have said this many times before but I feel I need to say it again. I have never met an employee of North Central Heart or Avera that doesn't like their job. It shows in how they treat patients and in their attitudes. I wish all employers treated their employees like ya'll do. It's a pleasure coming in for a check-up.
