Had a pleasant experience, no issues.

I have always had great service and experiences at the Ottumwa Pella Clinic. All of the staff are professional and courteous. I have always found Dr. John Kanis as the best Physician I have ever had. He is genuinely caring and companionate and willing to always give me the time needed to discuss any of my concerns for my medical care and provides support when needed. I am grateful to be able to have him as my primary care Physician.

By appt getting started later, wasn't able to schedule appts for further appts needed at that time. Office personnel was already gone. My Dr and Nurse were fabulous. Felt at least one office personnel should of been there till all patients were finished.

I trust Dr. John Kanis with my life. I have not seen him for a while. I knew he was the guy I had to go He listened to me, he understood me, he knows my history. I would not ever trust any other doctor, but him. I am truly blessed to have him as my doctor and we're going to get down to my problems. He's going to find out what everybody else has not been listening to me for. I appreciate him greatly, and your whole staff. Thank you.

My first response was because my appointment was at 3:45 but we didn't get in until 4:40. In these times we all have to be understanding of the situations we are facing now.
