Nurse Tony was great.
December 27, 2019
Yes, Dr. Allen was very, He spent a lot of time with us very considerate and my daughter was in with us and he spoke with her also and faced her as he was talking to her. And we've had him like 28 years and we really think he's a great doctor.
December 13, 2019
Yeah, just absolutely no complaints - Dr. Allen always has been my doctor cardiologist for 17 years - he's a terrific doctor and very nice man. This was a very good experience as usual. Thank you.

Dr Allen cares about me and my health. I felt much better after talking to him. He gave me great advice
November 21, 2019
Yes, I felt that he was very nice, and all the people that work there were very easy to talk to, and so I appreciated it very much. Thank you.

We have always had excellent care through North Central Heart and the Avera Heart Hospital. I started with Dr. Jerry Moench and his nurse Susan back in 2006 and currently with Dr. Raymond Allen and his nurse Janiece - all very attentive in my needs. Starting with those in registration and continuing through the check-out people, we have always had my medical condition and questions answered with excellent follow through. We couldn't ask for better experiences than what we have encountered with North Central Heart doctors, nurses, lab techs and other support people. Thank you for caring about your patients and their health.

I am appreciative and thankful for the service I received and I'm looking forward to the return for further diagnostic examination. Thank you.
August 28, 2019
Yeah, I made a couple of mistakes on that when I push the 3 and on the other I accidentally pushed 1000 and none of that is right. I'm sorry. I guess I'll use my wrong finger and it didn't come out right. Okay. So my service there and providing answers and Care have been very good. Really very good. I made a mistake, couple of mistakes there. I guess I was gone too much today, and that's what happened. Yep. Okay. Sorry about that. Thank you.

I had a really good experience with Dr. Allen and with both of his nurses, it was just incredible, but when I called to make an appointment the lady at the who answered the phone, I did not think was very welcoming or very helpful. The second complaint I have is that normally I am sent a form to have blood work done.This year, I had to call for the form instead of having it automatically sent to me. Thank you.
August 22, 2019
The nurses that attended to me were fantastic!
August 08, 2019
I'll tell ya, they let me sit in that room for a whole hour before Dr. Allen came in, and I don't think that is necessary. Okay
July 23, 2019
My appointment was set at 11, a new patient appointment that would take around 45 minutes. I arrived at 1030 and the doctor didn't see me until 1:55. I understand emergencies come up but was extremely disappointed when he only spent 7 minutes with me to tell me there's not much he could do for me. It made the hour drive there and the 3 hour wait absolutely a waste of my time.
July 23, 2019
Dr. Allen took more than enough time to explain my current condition, the options that were available to correct some of them. He also shared the risks involved and through his information and my wife and my information we decided that we would not take... do part of the surgery or procedure that he was... that he had recommended. He also said I don't believe you need it at this time. So we will continue to monitor it. Very, very excellent doctor. Thank you.
July 22, 2019
Good experience.
July 09, 2019
They were caring for me there and I can't remember which nurse it was. She even like rubbed my back and you know patted my hand, you know, just that personal touch that I don't think I've ever gotten before so they put me at ease cuz yeah, I just appreciate it.
July 01, 2019
Thank you very much for your kind and caring service. I knew I was in good hands. Perhaps the one thing I appreciated the most is that Dr. Allen listened to all of my concerns with regard to what has become a rather extensive medical history in the past three years for me. I felt like a participant in my health care decisions, as well as a receiver of care. As a nurse educator for many years, I admit that I am not a very passive patient! But I felt respected as we talked about how to proceed with managing my treatment and care as we go forward. Thank you very much!
June 28, 2019
The whole experience was very good.
June 24, 2019
Took care of all situations in a very professional manner. I recommend this care to anyone or everyone. I appreciate it. Thank you.
June 24, 2019
I thought all the staff was very much on their toes and cared about you as a patient. I was highly impressed.
June 21, 2019
Yep, when I have the best knowledge of any of my medical things done at the heart hospital with Dr. Allen. He is a wonderful doctor.
June 19, 2019
I have been coming to this facility for years. The staff is very nice and I am confident they know their jobs. But I have to comment on the remodel of the facility and the registration process. I stood in the outer door area waiting for the people ahead of me to check in at the first desk. I understand the process but maybe the desk needs to be moved back so people can get in the door. Some of the people waiting to get in the door were just there to visit patients. Not a good place to have this desk.
May 29, 2019
I believe that the care I received at the Heart Hospital was the best that I've ever had at any hospital. I think the staff especially the nurses were kind and courteous and very gentle with the patient me. Okay. Thank you very much. Thanks for calling. God bless.
