Ryan is the best. Fantastic medical practitioner. I have the utmost confidence in his medical care
June 04, 2021
Everyone was great and I feel taken care of, but I did have to wait over 2 hours to be seen.
May 25, 2021
Dr. Slaba was willing to explain everything to me in detail and with visualization with my X-rays. He was willing to listen to all my concerns and answer all my questions that I had about a plan of care.
May 15, 2021
I felt Mr. Slaba was very knowledgeable, competent, and friendly. I was pleased with the care he provided.

First time. Amazed how quick to be analyzed and treated. Wonderful care.

I greatly appreciate everyone there at the clinic. Everybody was kind and helpful. We were just starting our vacation when I pulled or did something to my leg. The pain was excruciating and thanks to Google I found this urgent care clinic that took walking. I also appreciate the time that Ryan took to work with me and explain everything to me. I would highly recommend the clinic to everyone!!

Just remind the front desk that the patients sitting there waiting can hear everything they say. There was a sigh when a patient walked in to check in. Also complaints on how busy they were. The PA was awesome!!

My PA Ryan Slaba was an amazing provider. He went in depth with me on my restrictions with my brace and my active lifestyle. He really made my concerns feel heard.
May 05, 2021
Ryan Slaba was a kind, knowledgeable, and professional provider. His quick care, diagnosis, and casting for our son was phenomenal. Will definitely return to the ortho urgent care if ever needed. Cannot speak more highly about our experience.

Everybody was very supportive, sympathetic, and knew how to handle themselves when I was vomitting. The PA Ryan Slaba was probably one of the best PAs I've ever seen thoroughly explained things and also listened to how I would like to proceed with care being my 5th ankle sprain he also presented his plan of after care with me in a very clear, simple, and easy to understand way. He was thorough. Reassured me the Ankle Foot doctor he referred me to is one of the best and made me feel confident that I'm in good hands.

My first time visit there. Impressed with the care I got.
April 08, 2021
I went into orthepedic urgent care. I got in and no receptionist acknowledge my presence do to being on the phone. I am ok with waiting, but when i am standing on a foot injury and on crutches it would've been nice to have them tell me i can sit down and the they would get to me when ready
April 06, 2021
The women's restroom was so dirty and not well maintained for such a beautiful facility. I mentioned this to the front desk person.
April 06, 2021
What a lovely experience
April 05, 2021
I believe the nurses had a mix up and put me in a room that another patient was already in but they were gone to X-ray. Otherwise the nurse, x-ray tech and Ryan Slaba was great?

Ryan S was terrific!
March 25, 2021
I as a patient was very impressed by the care I received. I was also impressed by the options that were given to me and explaining them in detail. Mr. Ryan Slaba was not only professional in my care, but his bedside manners were remarkable! He treated my wife and I with the utmost care and dignity.
March 25, 2021
Very positive experience which is rare for me to say about a doctor visit!
March 02, 2021
When Ryan entered the room to see my knee injury, he had already taken the time to go look up my 2012 & 2017 knee xrays. He was thorough and prepared, knowledgable and kind. He provided the level of compassion I would hope for from a provider. Undoubtedly one of my top experiences with an Avera provider. Ryan was hands down involved and not in a hurry to shove me out the door. I would see Ryan again if I needed to go back to the Ortho Urgent Care. Hands down the best!
February 27, 2021
Ryan was very knowledgeable and compassionate
February 26, 2021
very nice doctor
February 25, 2021
I was told that it would be about 1/2 hour before I would be seen. It turned out to be over an hour without anyone coming to tell me about a delay. After the xray, it was an additional 30+ minute wait. The nurse did step in at about 25 minutes to apologize...
February 07, 2021
Dr Slaba was great, I can tell he really cared about my injury. He explained things with great deal, listened to me, and encouraged me to come back or call if I had any future issues or questions.
January 26, 2021
over two hour wait to be seen when in pain was not good
January 22, 2021
Everyone exhibited exceptional "customer" service skills. Empathy, courtesy and overall kindness come to mind. Ryan was personable while remaining professional. He answered all my questions and helped me reach the best choice for care. He patiently looked at my x-rays with us and explained what we were seeing.
January 21, 2021
Ryan was very knowledgeable about my injury and offered options for me to consider which I really appreciated. Non-invasive and minimally invasive.
January 20, 2021
Excellent medical advice.
January 19, 2021
Probably they best provider I have ever been too!
January 12, 2021
Ryan did an exceptional job! I would see him again!

January 06, 2021
Nice to have a ct scan and MRI
December 27, 2020
Thank You to all.
December 14, 2020
This experience was great. But the experience (the referral) to get there was not. IMO, the nurse that recommended I go to urgent care, should have given me the name of the site, the phone number, and the address. I ended up researching on the internet to see if Avera had an urgent care orthopedic place myself! I don't like to be so critical of someone, but I wasted hours before I went b/c I wasn't sure where I should go. Just say'n...shouldn't be that way.
December 12, 2020
I was nervous about leaving OI because I was an employee there and knew the providers. Ryan was a Godsend. He is so knowledgable and made me feel right at ease and didn't judge me. He represents Avera well! Thank you!
December 08, 2020
Very good
December 02, 2020
We would expect an orthopedic urgent care facility to have an MRI machine.

Even with the pandemic they were thoughtful and caring.
October 27, 2020
Great experience...thanks
October 27, 2020
The provider did a very good job explaining the injury and recovery requirements. The nurse for that appointment to be having a bad day or didn't want to be there. I feel her presentation could have been more patient friendly.
October 27, 2020
Care was good other then the hour wait time but as a walk in I know it takes longer
October 27, 2020
Ryan did a great job of explaining what was going on for my son and also carefully reviewed the xrays before meeting with us to save time!
October 27, 2020
My visit with Ryan Slaba was great. He took the time to explain everything and made some notes for me. I didn't feel rushed and I felt like he truly cared. The registration process seemed a little confusing as I had never been there and it really wasn't explained, but in the end it all worked out.
October 21, 2020
Loved that he didn't just send me to X-ray. Gained my respect.
October 17, 2020
I had a completely excellent experience during my visit. All the staff I encountered were professional and kind. My wait times were ridiculously short. I feel like I got excellent care.
October 16, 2020
staff was friendly, understanding, good listener, well informed and well educated.
October 12, 2020
The receptionist was very short and the nurse was very cold, but the PA made up for it all. He was amazing!
