What My Patients Are Saying


Our Patient Satisfaction Rating is an average of all responses from patients who respond to questions from confidential surveys they receive from Crossroads Group, our survey source. Patients may not receive the same surveys. Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score.

Only those providers who have received 30 or more completed surveys will receive a Patient Satisfaction Rating and display comments. Comments are submitted by patients and reflect their views and opinions. Mid Dakota Clinic will post positive and negative feedback, but will not post comments that are libelous, profane, or compromise the privacy of our patients.

Wait times are inconsistent and often too long after my scheduled appointment time. Waiting in the exam room with no information and the uncertainty of when I will be seen is frustrating!
Oct 17, 2019
My appointment was at 2 PM but the doctor still had a number of colonoscopies to do so I could not see him until after 4 o'clock. so I left the clinic and came back two and half hours later. I could have seen the nurse practitioner but I wanted to see my doctor so I agreed to come back several hours later. I felt that the scheduling for my doctor could have been better so this wouldn't happen to him which was not his fault. Dr Kathawala is a excellent caring smart doctor and knows how to help his patients!

Professionalism at the same time as personal care

Concerning communication wi Dr. Kathawala: During my visit (appointment) on 6-6-19 he was pressing several places on the front of my body and asking; any pain here? Next, without waiting for my response he would say .......No? and proceed to the next place to be pressed. Over several years Dr. Kathawala has examined me many times and during the last few visits and I am more aware of this as somewhat of a deficiency; Asking No? and not waiting for my response. Sometimes I feel some pain but I am being encouraged to reply, "no," and then I think "this is probably not significant" and I let it go. Obviously time is a big factor here, he is asked to care for many patients but maybe he could make a little change. I would recommend that: 1) He cease asking No? and then not waiting for an answer. 2) He could just say, "Let me know if you feel any pain here" and then examine with pressure on several points. He would only need to say this several times during the exam. Overall I think he is a good physician. I am grateful that he and his staff have given me good care over the years. Thank you for your consideration on this issue.
