Review of Dr. Warren

- in Belle Plaine |

Dr. Warren was my doctor for my first 2 kids. Had we not moved back to Minnesota, he still would be our Doctor! He was wonderful! I couldn't of asked for a nicer more caring doctor. I had one another child in Minnesota. My new doctor did not live up to Dr. Warren!

Review of Dr. Warren


You’re better off googling your symptoms than meeting with this guy. Arrogant and rude old man, with outdated education. If you want to meet with a doctor who is stuck in the 70s, he is definitely your guy.

Review of Dr. Bennis

-Brookings |

I went to Dr. Bennis for my yearly exam and later for Mirena. I cannot recommend Dr. Bennis and her staff enough. They are friendly, professional, but most importantly provide the highest quality care I have ever had- and I've lived in different states before moving to SD.

Review of Dr. Eischens

-Brookings, SD |

I have seen Dr. Eischens for the past 9 years for myself and my family. She truly cares about you as a person, not just another patient. I am incredibly sad to move away as it will be tough to find another doctor to fill her shoes.

Amazing Dr.!!!! I went in for severe abdominal pain. Dr. Williamson listened intently and was very thoughtful and caring. I'm very fortunate she will be my new primary care doctor! !! Thank you Dr. And God bless. .. Julio C.

Review of Dr. Holm

- in Manchester, CT |

My Wife and I , our children and my own late father have been patients of Dr. Holm for more than two decades. Not only is Dr. Holm a superb example of the best qualities of the practice of family medicine, Rick easily becomes a family friend whose "life examples & suggestions" linger beyond the time spent in our office visits and remain with us as moments enriching our quality of life. We now live almost half a continent away and Dr. Rick Holm remains relevant. Bob & Susan Mendelsohn.

Review of Dr. Rietz

-Brookings, SD |

I wouldn't refer my worst enemy to Dr Robert Rietz, he ignored signs of oral cancer in my husband's mouth for months. We ended up going through 16 weeks of radiation therapy and 3 chemo weeks of treatment. If he would have been more observant of what our dentist found treatment wouldn't have been so long or devestatating. In my opinion his license should be revoked.

Review of Dr. Holm

- in Brookings SD |

My daughter was chronically ill and started seeing this doctor when she was 18. He told other doctors such horrific stories about her she couldn't find another doctor. By the time she was in her mid 20's he was over medicating her to the point of kidney damage. He flat refused her a referral (a medicaid must) to a specialist. She past away at age 29 of end stage renal failure. This man shouldn't practice medicine on anyone.
