Thank you...for your time and help. Your staff was very informative, professional and kind. Thank you again for all you do.
Within 15 minutes of arriving, I was greeted, checked in, x-rayed and in my exam room with the x-rays on the screen ready for my PA. Everyone who I met with was friendly and efficient. This team really has it dialed in. I would enthusiastically recommend this team to anyone.
The whole staff group was wonderful. Pleasant, considerate and prompt.
Your healthcare system is absolutely top notch. Every department does their job professionally and in a way that makes me feel like I am the most important person there.
Great experience from the minute I got there. Friendly, efficient and quick at check-in.
From the moment we walked into the Twin Cities Spine Center, we sensed that it would be a positive experience. The office assistants were friendly and helpful. We got into our appointment ahead of schedule. Once in the exam room, staff immediately began collecting information and assembling our daughter's medical history. Throughout the experience, staff remained friendly and helpful but very professional and knowledgeable.
I went in for [a second opinion], and I was very satisfied with how they spent the time to let me know what was going on and show me on my MRI. Totally would recommend.
