Review of Dr. Peery


Dr. Peery made a drastic error while performing surgery for hernia repair. He knicked something during surgery resulting in internal bleeding which nearly cost me my life 10 days post op. I ended up having to have emergency surgery via a cardiovascular surgeon to save my life. Not impressed with Dr. Peery. Yes he is nice but this is unacceptable. I certainly would not recommend him to anyone for any surgery.

Review of Karla Statema


Karla is condescending with patients and I heard her in the hallway treating a co worker the same way while I was a patient at Sanford

I am still pre-op for wls and gallbladder surgery. But Dr Peery and his wonderful team have been nothing but professional and caring. They have been very thorough and looking out only for my well being. I would recommend them to anyone.

Review of Dr. Denevan

- in North Dakota |

Dr. Denevan performed NSM and SLNB immediately prior to my breast reconstruction procedure. She was personable, friendly, caring and so upbeat. She called me personally the day after I went home from the hospital to check on me and did an amazing job. I would recommend her to anyone!

Review of Dr. Bjordahl

- in Windom, MN |

Dr.Bjordahl is amazing. Other doctors didn't hold out much hope for my husband.Our first visit with Dr.Bjordahl was like coming home and seeing family.He gave us the hope we were looking for.Every appointment and all emergency visits were still like coming home. He did the surgery about 7 months ago.My husband is doing great.We are so happy with Dr.Bjordahl. He is number one with our family.

Review of Dr. Sorrell

- in Sugar Land, TX |

Dr Sorrell was my elderly mother's admitting/attending physician recently. He was mindful of her age and careful not to perform this non-emergency yet urgently needed surgery until she had been 'optimized' both nutritionally and from a cardiac standpoint. The surgery was necessary to determine the nature of the abdominal mass on her lower intestine, which unfortunately turned out to be a non-Hodgkins lymphoma. He remainded her attending physician even after performing his part, the surgery.
