My PCP was on vacation so I saw Dr. Dierks in place of my normal doctor. I was astounded by how well versed he was in my medical history and how attentive he was for it being the first time seeing me. He didn't do more than necessary but he did enough to fix my problem. I really appreciated him and his staff!

July 17, 2019
I had serious issues and lack of basic respect from the receptionist at the front desk. I was forced to return another day even when an appointment was available. It was addressed by my doctor and I believe the medical staff had nothing to do with the problem.

The entire clinic is always amazing. Whether I'm there for myself or my children's visits, every encounter I have is awesome.

April 05, 2019
Dr Dierks and the nursing staff are always pleasant and extremely helpful. The check in staff is usually very friendly and work quickly while not making me feel like I'm being rushed along. The one complaint I would have is calling in to the clinic is always a problem. I have to call many times, often for several days to get through to Dr Dierks office. The person who answers the phone is not pleasant at all, consistently makes us feel as though we're wasting her time, and has refused to pass along messages or requests to the doctor in several instances. However, if I call another doctor's line I am able to get my requests through or appointments made swiftly. I have appreciated Dr Dierks' and his nurses' care for many years, and do not wish to change doctors, but the service I receive over the phone is important as well and has made me consider switching to another clinic.
