I went in for a ankle issue sprain? Dr. Asked me were it hurts, asked if I had changed shoes, hurt myself, pressed where it hurts. Then said I could try a boot, brace, or stay off for a week, we choose a Brase he got up saying let me see if we have a brace and a nurse came in with it put it on and that was it, Dr. Never came back so I never got to ask questions on ankle heat? Ice? How long to wait to see if this works when to go back? Ect...

Dr Dierks is an amazing physician - he actually listens and provides good information on what could be causing the issue and helps to make it better - he doesn't just look at me, tell me to lose weight and then leave the room - I've had quite a few appts like that until I found Dr Dierks and his team - keep up the amazing hospitality and care you guys provide.

Excellent
June 22, 2021
Front desk staff member was extremely rude when we arrived to our appointment. There was miscommunication in time and we were 20 minutes late. The receptionist made sure to let us know that we were late and causing a huge inconvenience for the Provider. When we met with Dr Dierks we held a 3 minute visit and he never made any indication we ruined his schedule for the day. My husband and I are both Avera employees and certainly did not need to be treated like this. This was the first time we were late to an appointment so we were disappointed with the lack of compassion and communication when we arrived to our sons appointment.
June 22, 2021
I would recommend them and that is the highest compliment one can give.

Dr Dierks always takes time to explain things in a way that makes sense. He can always provide clinically based feedback to support his suggestions and makes us feel so much better. He is simply the best. Also, he has the best "drugs talk" for our teenager.

February 23, 2021
Computers were down so Dr. had trouble remembering everything, I didn't expect him to without being able to refer to my chart. The receptionist questioned that this was a work comp claim because it was a pre-op physical. Work Comp can result in surgery.
February 16, 2021
Dr Dierks is very easy to talk with about any condition and very good about his results.
February 16, 2021
Dr. Dierks is a doctor who cares. He never seems to be in a rush to get through an appointment. He always has time to work with me and my husband, whether via in-person appointments, virtual appointments or by answering questions via messaging on the portal.
February 16, 2021
The clerks are usually a bit rude.In person nurse in a hurry.Doctor seemed preoccupied.Probably the result of covid stress

I feel very comfortable with Dr Dierks. He is also the physician for my daughter. I trust his recommendations and will continue to use him as my provider. My only frustration is his scheduler who we had a conversation about. She is not very friendly and willing to listen to what you have to say.
