The nurse that took me to the exam room told me Dr Torkelson was with a patient, then would come to me. When Dr Torkelson finished she apologized for the delay, but it was less delay than usual AND I was kept informed. Thank you!!

Dr. Torkelson is very thorough and attentive to my concerns. Since my bloodwork had already been done, went through my results and discussed course of action needed. She went through my medications and ordered refills that I needed. Dr. Torkelson is a blessing to me.
