Dr. Posthuma is an amazing doctor. He listens to everything that I had to say and puts it in ways that I can understand it. I had many options. When it came to this doctor's visit and he never questioned my opinion. He's just an amazing provider.

Dr posthuma always listens to and cares about his patients. He's so good with the kids and I wouldn't choose anyone else to be our doctor.

Dr. Posthuma is always so kind and caring, and makes you feel comfortable being there. He always listens to what you have to say and always answers any questions I might have, plus, I always feel he goes the extra mile to make sure you understand everything he is telling you. His nurse, Beth, is also a super nurse and also a very caring person. Dr. Posthuma and his nurses are the absolute best!!!

I would just like to reiterate that Dr. Posthuma, and his nurse Jaline Zylstra, are top notch and we love having them as our family doctor and family nurse. Thank you so much.

Had to wait quite a while to get in but both the nurse and the doctor apologized for the long wait.

I felt hurried and I wanted a flu shot before I left, but the doctor forgot or (INAUDIBLE) nurse didn't tell him that that's what I wanted or something. So, that miscommunication didn't help, but mostly, it's a good experience to go there.

Posthuma is always willing to listen and go beyond what he needs to do to help you. His nurse Beth is always kind as well as Dr. Posthuma and I trust him with my life, of course. Thank you.

Long wait time... Had a 3:30 appointment and did not see the Dr. until 4:20. I don't believe this is a Dr. related problem as I do a scheduling or workload problem. I am very happy with my Dr. and feel he always has my well being as a priority. His nurse is very personable and is always very pleasant.
