I liked that he went over my chart before coming in. He was able to discuss my visit of 2 years ago as if it were just a few days ago.

It is always a pleasant experience at this clinic. Dr Dosch is a kind and empathetic physician.
June 28, 2020
A little dismayed at the dr being rushed that day. Understandable, I guess, with the need now for everyone taking special precautions with the covid threat. I will ask my primary dr to take over all my care. I'm doing well.

Doctor Dosch was very informative and explained exactly what he was doing during each step of the procedure (lancing and draining a cyst). He frequently asked if the pain level was ok and would stop if needed. Him and his nurse were both very friendly and answered any questions I had!

As always, a culture of care exists when dealing with the Avera system at any level. Patient care and welfare lies at the core of their service provided. The medical and peripheral staff provide a caring and kind environment which serves to place patients at ease in a moment of vulnerability when their health is compromised. I have personally had this experience each and every time I have been seen for health related issues at any Avera facility.
