Dr. Dykstra is great! She is calm, to the point, and welcoming. We missed her while she was on maternity leave.

I have already let my family know how much I really like her! She was very friendly and thorough. It was a very positive first visit with her.

Dr. Dykstra is so approachable, knowledgeable, and easy to talk to. She listens and genuinely cares about you! I appreciate that she knows I am a believer and is able to incorporate shared beliefs in a professional way into our visits. I definitely trust her with my daughters care as well as my own.

Rebecca is a very caring compassionate person. I am glad that she was highly recommended to me when I was looking for a new doctor.

She was calm, caring, curious(by that I mean she asked plenty of questions) and that helped to make me comfortable. She also never rushed, and was quite obviously knowledgeable; if she wasn't sure about something she looked it up. I am so thankful to have her as my "new" primary care provider!

She was very friendly and professional. This was the first visit with her, so she told me a little about herself and asked about me. I would definitely see her again if my doctor I have been seeing for years is not available.

My family greatly appreciates Dr. Dykstra. She has been so great through the process of becoming a family. She is always so personal and encouraging for us as becoming first time parents.

Dr. Dykstra was caring, professional, and well educated. Great addition to the team of doctors in Pella.

As first time parents, we could not have asked for a better provider than Dr. Dykstra. From the start she was supportive, encouraging and patient with all of our questions. She has a unique ability to connect with her patients and is so down to Earth. Not only is her medical ability as a doctor a great strength, but her situational awareness and ability to understand the depths of her patients was very impressive. She naturally created this environment that made us feel extremely comfortable to ask any question, no matter how elementary or far fetched, always making each moment with her feel feel as valuable to her as it was to us. We are continuing to have her provide for our son and look forward to the appointments with her.

Dr. Dykstra was perfect for my kids. She talked to my kids and listened to them. My kids felt comfortable and respected her word because she respected them and their concerns. You could see the genuine compassion and concern she had for them. She addressed everything on the physical form and more. My kids left asking if she can be their doctor. I left knowing my kids now have another respected adult to talk to with any life questions. That is amazing. Exactly what I'm looking for in a family physician.
