Love that it is smaller clinic and personable. No long waits in the lab area. Quicker, more efficient service.

I am truly thankful for and appreciate the excellent service that I always receive. From the minute you walk in the door, the receptionists, nurse and doctor that I see are always supportive and kind. They truly care for my overall well-being, going above and beyond with their care and knowledge. I can't say enough good things about them and how grateful I am for all that they do. Avera is truly blessed to have them on staff.

Very caring Dr. and his nurse was very personable.

The nurses and doctors treated me as a person and not just a patient. They acknowledge and know the names of my children and spouse and ask about them. It's so nice having that personal touch with the providers.

I have had 4 other OB/GYN with my other pregnancies at this and other hospitals. I have been extremely happy with the care I received from Dr. G and his nurses. I would recommend him to other family and friends. The maternity staff at the hospital with my last two babies have been wonderful too. We're so pleased with the care we've received.
