Dr. Minnehan is very easy to talk to about anything. It is comfortable discussing any issue. She is thorough and takes time to hear you. That is important to most people. I read all the time about doctors that don't pay attention to your concerns. She is very good at explaining too.

I was transported in the nighttime to the ER in Cardiac distress, He walked out walked out from the ER, he was the only MD on duty at this small hospital, He was complaining about how he was not appreciated, he never took care of me. He was fired from that hospital

Review for Dr. Pikus

I moved here two years ago and everyone at work recommended him to me. This guy is awesome. He took time to examine and get to know me and my needs instead of staring at a computer monitor asking me questions like the majority of other Dr. I have seen.

Review for Dr. Secrest

Dr. Boyea provided little helpful information on how to deal with my hand problems other than saying that "when it gets worse we'll talk about surgery." I had to press him on what I could do in the meantime. He didn't seem intrested in my particular issues.

I have recommended Dr. Minnehan to friends and neighbors when I hear they are not happy with their care by other providers. I feel she is very thorough, and is always happy to answer any questions I may have. I appreciate having her as my physician.

Dr Afzal did not take time to ask questions or take the time to listen. It was a complete wasted visit and a waste of my time. The office staff and assistant were great. The facility is poorly designed and confusing campus

Our family can't say enough wonderful things about Dr. Tingstad and his staff. What a blessing he is to this community and especially to our family! I have three athletic active sons and wouldn't put their care in anyone else's hands.

See a real Dr instead of a DO. Nice guy if you just want to have a conversation. I prefer the MD in my doctors name...

Review for Dr. Pikus

An excellent and compassionate Dr! I was hemorrhaging from a miscarriage and he was very knowledgeable and resourceful with the limited resources available. Highly recommend and you can tell he chooses quality care over seeing a lot of patients in a limited time. Couldn't ask for a better Dr!
