Provider Reviews

I have see Dr. Hyett several times over the years to have hemorrhoids banded. He always takes time to listen to you and does as great job of explaining things. He's very thorough, compassionate, considerate and professional. I highly recommend him.

Review for Dr. Hyett

Dr. Sullivan is great, but his staff provides zero communications. It takes forever to get a response from his office about something as simple as a prescription refill. In the interest of efficiency they made me feel ignored, uninformed and nervous about my surgery.

Review for Dr. Dirksmeier

He seemed concerned with my problem and remembered details I'd mentioned to him on my last visit. Did his best addressing my medical problems, but also spent time just chit-chatting about unrelated stuff. Very personable guy!
