Review of Dr. Peterson

- in MN |

Very poor communicator and ignored serious symptoms that were life threatening in the growth of my cancer. I went to the Mayo Clinic for a second opinion and they immediately put me on a full chemo treatment that essentially saved my life.

Review of Dr. Downs Jr


I have seen a significant amount of doctors in my life and I have to say that Dr. Downs is #1! He is actually a dream doctor! He is incredibly bright, has amazing listening skills, is frank in a good way and has a wonderful lightness about him. All good in a doctor!

Review of Dr. Kinnan

-St Paul, MN |

As another reviewer indicated he has "very important person" syndrome. He is condescending and, oh boy, watch out if you don't agree with him. If we ever go to the ER again and he is there, we will ask for another doctor or go somewhere else. He needs to realize that he is not God. Oh, and don't let him do a spinal tap...he wings it.

Review of Dr. Kinnan


He has very important person syndrome. If you like someone who asks about your medical history and interrupts or disputes what you're telling him, please see him. You will feel much better if you avoid this one!!!

Review of Dr. Ustun

- in New Brighton, MN |

I have been a patient of Dr. Ustun's since approximately 8/1/14. I was diagnosed w ith Multiple Myeloma and required a stem cell transplant. Dr. Ustun is very professional and yet has a nice bed side manner. He is very thorough during exams. He listens well to my complaints/concerns. My care under Dr. Ustun has been great and I trust him completely with my care as he has my best interest at heart. I am thankful that I was referred to him. Of note, I'm in remission!!!

Review of Dr. Pensinger

- in Zimmerman, mn |

I walked in at 1:45pm & was told immediately that they take their lunch from 2pm to 2:30pm and that even though I was the only patient there I would have to wait until they came back, so basically over an hour later I was finally on my way home with my 3 young children. And the only reason I needed to be seen was because my child needed a prescription for pink eye!! Absolutely ridiculous!!
