Everyone was courteous and kind. Wait time was extremely short.. Dr. Posthuma was thorough and concerned about my health...

My physical had to be rescheduled due to the dr being out of the office on the day I had been scheduled for pryer. I felt he was being rushed now with the rescheduled time. Also, I am sure physicals are not a drs most favorite thing to do. I am generally a pretty healthy person and feel I must not know how to communicate well when I feel something is wrong with me. I have a sore arm that just won't go away that I mentioned but it got completely overlooked. I guess I need to do more than say it kinda hurts.... So after rereading this, there is nothing wrong with my physical appointment and a lot wrong with my communication skills. I hope whoever reads this has a nice day. Sorry to waste your time.

Dr Posthuma has been my primary care physician for almost 25 years and he knows me very well. He always treats me very well and listens to me. He trusts that I know my body and I know when something isn't right. I dread the day he retires.

doctors seem to rushed, all of them i have had contact with in pella. gotta move us in and out in such a hurry. don't have the time to talk about mental health. always just pushing prescriptions. this is an increasing problem over the years. i used to be so happy with the doctors. big business taking priority over patience health and well being

It seemed a little rush.

Lynda, the receptionist when I left, scheduled my appointment for next year on November 7 and then told me not to show up on November 7 of this year??? I said "what" and she repeated it again. I felt like she treated me like I was stupid. Obviously I'm not going to come back for another physical 2 days after I had one.

As usual, I couldn't ask for a better provider or nurse. They are the best there is. Thank you to Dr. Posthuma and his nurse, Shalene, during this visit! They always treat you with true compassion!
