Provider Reviews

Dr. Reich is a phenomenal GI doctor. He explains things really well, listens, and makes a great care plan for me. If you are looking for an excellent gastroenterologist in the northland, he is it!

Dr. Lund was helpful and took all of my background information in to account. Asked appropriate history questions when history was not provided. Will continue to see as my primary care physician.

I have seen Janna multiple times as well as my family. She is very thorough and uses her patient-centered practice very well. She listens to the patient unlike the providers across the road. I would definitely recommend her to anyone. A+++

Review for Janna Block

He is hard tc contact. He takes too many long vacations for a young physician. He is paranoid about losing his license and inappropriately discussed his daughter during a patient visit.

Review for Dr. Rubin

Dr. Ketchum is my dad's doctor. He is kind, caring, compassionate and empathetic doctor. He does not rush my dad through an appointment; he takes the time to explain current health, next steps, and future outlook. He is wonderful and I appreciate the care he is giving to my dad.
