In 1994 I received a heart transplant after Dr Wickemeyer had placed me on a waiting list. He has been my cardiologist since. I literally owe my life to him !

Review for Dr. Wickemeyer

Dr. Van Natta. A highly intelligent second generation doctor, he combines a holistic perspective with the science of medicine and the art of healing. His insight, knowledge, and down to earth patient care is second to none. On a scale of 1 to 10, he's 10 plus.

Dr. Hoque has been helpful and attentive each time I’ve visited. She takes time to understand the issues and is honest when prescribing medications or giving recommendations to make you feel better. She is kind and sweet and highly recommend her as a primary care physician.

She was constantly on her phone, and didn't listen to me at all. I had specific stated I didn't want tela - appointments. The last appointment I had with her was tela appt. and she had a bad attitude as she told me she wouldn't treat my disease, just diagnose it.

Wait time for first visit was 55 minutes and second visit 50 minutes. No consideration given to these long wait times for the elderly patients. Doesn't listen to patient.

Review for Dr. Bergman

Dr. Hoque was rude and unfriendly when my daughter and I visited her recently. She was unwilling to listen to my concerns that I had. I normally see another physician in her clinic but was scheduled with her by mistake. I wont be recommending her to anyone nor will I ever see her again!

Hannah in Des Moines, IA - Apr 29 2016

Review for Dr. Hoque

She is a good listener. She really follows the guidelines, however when the medication based on these guidelines don't work for the patient, she doesn't offer any support nor alternatives. She doesn't dewl with her patient's condition from a wholestic approach at all.

Grinnell, IA - Apr 27 2016
