Patient Reviews

October 07, 2018
Dr. Reid is a very kind and caring person as well as an excellent physician. We are very fortunate to have him provide care in Cedar Rapids.
October 01, 2018
Some kind of photo shoot was arranged this day. The doctor entered the room before my blood pressure had been taken, and then uttered a couple of half-sentences which apparently were intended to summarize the surgical result. Had I not tried to put forth a question, he would have been gone in less than one minute. Granted, this was not brain surgery, and information is generally available on the internet, but not much was involved as far as professional treatment of something I am sure I will get a hefty bill for. In contrast, the following visit, when the NP/PA removed stitches (I really had to come back two days later for this?), I got excellent information.
July 24, 2018
Dr. Reid's explanation of my surgery to my wife and I was excellent. He put our minds at ease concerning what we could expect and answered all questions we asked.
July 17, 2018
This truly is an exceptional team. I cannot say enough nice things about Dr. Reid and all- Dr. Reid always makes me feel like I am his only patient of the day.
July 10, 2018
Dr. Reid and his staff made a difficult situation more tolerable with their confidence and genuine concern (also a little humor).
June 12, 2018
Physician not up to date. He did not read medical records from other providers.
May 15, 2018
wonderful. From day 1 *Dr. Reid has been great about explaining things.
April 10, 2018
felt I was pushed off and that I was a burden because provider made it clear he dealt with cancer patients overall. felt my surgery was not important enough. left me confused, frustrated, and a feeling of dismay.
March 09, 2018
I had a great experience there as your patient I was in good hands.
March 08, 2018
Dr. Reid spent a lot of time addressing my and my family's concerns concerning my upcoming surgery. Which was greatly appreciated.
March 04, 2018
answered all questions in down to earth language and encouraged questions. Did not feel rushed and or that I was not important to them.
February 18, 2018
I did not feel the doctor spent much time with me at all (2 or 3 minutes!). I was given an after summary sheet that explained more than what was discussed with me!
January 18, 2018
I don't think the doctor even remembered who I was, the people at the office were okay: the nurse, receptionist etc. But the doctor took one look at my incision and said is that a black magic marker or an incision? I wondered that myself but I thought the doctor should have remembered what he did, he made a 5 inch incision I would have thought he would have remembered it. Seems awful strange to me
January 17, 2018
They all are the BEST.
January 04, 2018
Dr Reid did not rush me and answered my concerns.
