I would NOT recommend this doctor to anyone.
He is not caring and in fact made a point to be very rude.
He laughed at me and said "Its all in your head."
He would not make any recommendations or treatment options.
VERY disappointed that Mayo clinic has this man on staff.
I am a local college student and grew up in Mankato. I would recommend Dr. Jacob to any of my friends or family members. She really gets to know her patients and cares about their overall well being; physical, mental and emotional. She has helped me through the stress of being a college student and is always willing to communicate over the Mayo portal if I have questions. She always considers what is in the patients best interest and doesn't rush to order unnecessary tests.
I will never recommend this doctor to anyone! He was very uncompassionate and had no desire to help us. Made a point to tell us he was retired. Why is he seeing patients in need then?? We drove 9 hours for him to tell us it would be at least 2 weeks for him to try to do anything.
Dr. VanGompel successfully removed a giant tumor from my pituitary gland in March, 2017. Dr. VanGompel has preserved my quality of life and I will be eternally grateful to him and the fine staff at Mayo Clinic. I have the greatest confidence level in Dr. VanGompel's abilities.
We were throughly impressed and pleased with Dr. Van Gompel. He is why we came to Mayo and it was the best decision we could have made for my father's care and treatment. The surgery went far better than we ever expected. As surgeons go, he's a Rockstar, very gifted and we couldn't be more grateful for him!
She was dismissive, arrogant and without empathy. The first appt, all of 20 minutes,after waiting many weeks to see her,was take this medicine one pill in the morning and one pill in the evening and after one week take two pills in the morning and two pills in the evening. She then gets up and as she is walking out of the room she states "make a appt. with me in 4 wKs."
I thought twice about making this appt. but did. Second appt. was even worst than the 1st,within10 minutes she doubled the med
My mother had bladder cancer almost 5 years ago. Dr. Tolefson saved my mother. He is a n awesome surgeon, doctor and person. Thank you for being honest with our family and savin our Mom.
Very knowledgeable and I have great trust in her decisions regarding my care. I have referred many friends and family members and have heard nothing but positive things. HIGHLY recommend
Sometimes good, she made questionable decisions and didn't understand when I was concerned. 1st, she changed my anti-anxiety medication after 7-8 years of usage for something less effective, despite me being recently hospitalized for depression. She also failed to clearly explain why. 2nd, she noticed a conflict (8 months after it started) between my long-time depression med and a new pain med. She said to pick one, and was apathetic when i had significant withdrawal symptoms while weaning.
Dr. Tollefson has been treating me for prostate cancer for 2 and 1/2 years. He is clearly an exceptionally bright man and an excellent surgeon. Beyond that his hallmark is his caring, patience and understanding. Despite a few setbacks, he has always left us feeling that we are in excellent care and that he truly cares about my health and recovery. I cannot recommend him more highly.
I was a patient of Dr. Sathoff's for 5 yrs or more. He's intelligent, caring, and funny. I doubt I will ever find another Dr that compares to him. I hope he knows what a difference he makes in peoples lives. We moved away, that is the only reason I stopped seeing him.
Dr. Brady is the best!
Dr. Cox is the best doctor my family has ever had! He shows genuine concern and really attempts to do the best care for my family. He is a great listener and always gives us thorough medical attention...more than our family has ever experienced. He never seems to rush us through our appointments. We were referred to him by family and friends who love him as well. The only downside is that appointment availability can be limited unless booked months in advance.
I wouldn't never recommend this doctor. He isn't quick to decision and bias.
argued with other drs wouldnt explain things would notrecomend
Dr. Cox has cared for my children and delivered my daughter. He's an excellent doctor and I would refer him to any family.
Disappointed in care I received here. Would not recommend.
He was very dismissive of my concerns. His demeanor came off as arrogant and disrespectful. All of this changed once he discovered I was a patient of a highly respected cardiac specialist. He asked me about my cardiac history and dismissed it before I even finished my first sentence. He even answered a personal call during examination. Calling him condescending would too inadequate of an adverb to describe him. If you see him as your doctor, please insist you see a different one.
