Review of Dr. Thorn

-Waverly, IA |

Dr. Thorn goes above and beyond for his patients! Sometimes there is a wait to see him, but he makes every patient feel like they are his top priority. He is very attentive to infertility patients and has a fantastic bedside manner. Mercy was smart to set him from Mayo!

Review of Dr. Vocal

- in Winsted, MN |

I can't recommend Dr. Vocal enough! He is a great doctor, listens to his patients, and is very thorough. He has a warm and caring bedside manner. He genuinely cares about his patients. He is open to considering alternative treatments and does not push to put his patients on medications unless necessary. My husband and I drive over one hour to see him, but he is worth it! Of all doctors I have seen, he is the one I would trust with my life. A great man practicing medicine for the right reasons!

Review of Dr. Carlson

Phenomenal physician! We travel over 9 hours to see him. By far the most compassionate doctor we have had the privilege of dealing with. He is truly in it for the right reasons.

Review of Dr. Carlson

-

I am very satisfied with the care Dr. Carlson and his team provided. He was very thorough and knowledgeable and took the time to make sure all of my questions were answered. Day of surgery went great, we even received a follow up phone call to make sure things were going well. Couldn't have asked for a better surgeon.
