Went in for severe abdominal pain, the nurse spent 20 minutes trying to put an IV in and had to call in another nurse. When drawing blood, no one documented time, so when the lab sent someone to pick up the vials, they just guessed a time to put on there. The nurses never wore gloves and one's fingernails were visibly dirty.
My daughter had her baby there. I've birthed five and have never seen or heard of a delivery this botched. The replacement doctor was completely incompetent. I'm convinced he failed to read her chart and even broke her water with his dirty, jagged fingernails. He let her push twice, then insisted on an emergency C-section. The noises she made while waiting for anesthesia still curdle my blood. They tortured her. The surgeon needed the nurse to push the baby BACK INSIDE of her TWICE because she was so far into the birth canal that he couldn't get hold of her head. Explain to me why a C-section was necessary.
Her ob doctor was on vacation. The moment that clown came through the door with his wrinkled Dockers, unkempt fingernails, and all-around dopey expression, my instinct was to put her in the car and drive to Sioux falls. You're taught to trust your doctor and not be rude, so I ignored my instinct. Never again.
There are a couple doctors here that are very good. The problem is that you can't ever get in to see your own doctor. I want to be able to see the same doctor more than once. What happened to having a doctor that knows your name without reading the chart? How can you build trust this way? Small town clinic has no benefits anymore.
The clinic is ok. A few of the physicians are wonderful, but the others are really not. Everyone trying to get appointments with the better doctors makes getting a timely appointment near impossible.
Please don't go here. In talking to several doctors in sioux falls, there is where the dregs of the sanford system come. For a normal checkup, you are fine, if you have an emergency, go to Brandon or Sioux Falls, unless you can't drive.
