I visit was good. I saw a student and another physician perhaps a resident mostly. The actual doctor popped in at the end. All were kind and caring people. They listened to problems and were able to make a diagnosis. The receptionist was very nice.

My chart helped me communicate directly with my physician. I had an unusual health event and was told my physicians next appointment was 6 weeks out. I contacted Dr. Pohlgeers on My Chart and she fit me in. She is doing everything possible to identify and help with my problem!
