Dr. Bergquam is very aware of my philosophy of healthcare with regard wo the maintenance of my machine. She is always very direct and unafraid to posit a medication, change of dosage or course of action which she believes would improve my health even when she is aware that I might disagree. I respect her for knowledge and the fact that she, herself, appears physically fit. I do not believe that all doctors deserve a rave review but this one definitely does!

I could not ask for a better doctor than Dr. Nina Bergquam. I am 67 years old and have lived in five states, and Dr. Bergquam is simply the best because she is smart, understanding, practical, calm, kind, and funny.

your phone system needs work. accessibility to provider is frustrating, nearly impossible and has had me thinking seriously about finding another doctor, ins plan who is not encumbered by your system. I'm surprised that with the excellent care from people like dr because thAt she is so inaccessible to patients. the order takers and schedulers are needed but they should not be running interference for the care giver. I would be willing to bet money, not one decision maker has ever tried using your phone system to access a doctor like a patient has to..

I'm especially grateful to be seeing the same provider I've seen for a number of years now. She has a history with me and knows who I am. I don't have to waste time explaining background information.

The doctor brought in physical therapists who were on hand in the office. That was very helpful.
50

07/27/2017
I only talked to this provider maybe for 5 minutes. she brought in a physical therapist to evaluate my condition. I have not received a definite diagnosis from either Dr. B or the P.T. Dr B appeared to be overwhelmed with the number of patients and therefore left an impression in my mind of being hurried.

Glad she could work me in. I was reassured by her diagnosis.

The last visit was a follow-up visit for an emergency room visit for what proved to be diverticulitis. This was a second occurrence, so we discussed the need for another referral and some diet restrictions. Bergquam also gave time to two other issues I had, and made an appropriate referral. Both my wife and I appreciate her being current with us, and available when that is needed.

I wish she would have showed a little more concern when I asked about my thyroid, at least came up with some suggestions on how to make things better. She just agreed to the possible cause of the issue.

I'm not the type of person that runs to the doctor every time I sneeze. She always greets me with a hello stranger with her beautiful smile. She did the same for my mother in law who has passed. She also sees my father So I feel like we have a family doctor, just what I miss about doctors these days.

She always listens to what I have to say.
90

02/08/2017
Even though I waited 20 minutes for Dr. after Assistant checked me in, she acknowledged that she was behind due to unexpected additional time taken by the previous patient. I understand how that can happen and it rarely has in my experience.
100

02/07/2017
My doctor is wonderful. I like her very much. However, I spent [...] in the ER for high blood pressure. When I called in to make a followup appointment with the doctor's office, I was told by the office staff the earliest they could get me in was Wednesday [...]. I wish they had explained my doctor is not in on Tuesday and would I like to see another Dr. instead. It would have eased my anxiety level not having to wait to see her.

Could pay more attention to my problems with pain. Referred me to a pain specialist but that did not do any good. Could use more advice on managing arthritis pain without using pain medication.
100

12/17/2016
Dr. Bergquam listens to me. What could be more important? I truly trust her opinion and skill as our doctor.

It took a lot to get Nina to run tests on me. I've been losing weight for 6 months w/pain & nausea. [...] Her nurses called me to tell me that she has no further help for me. It seems like she doesn't listen to me. I continue to lose weight. I've gone to see her when I was so weak I couldn't walk on my own - she said she couldn't do anything for me and sent me back to the ER for more IV fluid. I can't eat, lay down, or move around much. I feel like she doesn't really care if I get better or not.
100

12/14/2016
I feel comfortable talking to her and she listens. She is awesome!

12/14/2016
Takes a little longer to get in to see the doctor than what I'd prefer sometimes depending on what the office call is for.
