Provider Reviews

I was seen by Dr. Dankwart in the ER. She makes patients feel at ease, is easy to talk to, listens well and has a good sense of humor. Highly recommend her.

Review for Dr. Hausch

She is very compassionate & personable. She takes the time to listen to my problems & concerns. Dr. Kamp kept me very informed every step of my pregnancy & made sure I was comfortable with everything that was to come. She made my pregnancy, birth/labor experience so much less stressful!
