Dr. Almquist has been my family doctor for over 39 years. He and his staff have always been very courteous and helpful. They are easy to reach and always help with our health concerns and prescription refills etc. We have every confidence in this office.

Dr, Almquist has been mine and my husband's doctor for many years. We would hate to see him retire any time soon. My husband was recently take by ambulance to the hospital for a high fever and blood infection. I called Dr. Almquist's office to ask him to check up on what was being done at the hospital. He made a personal call to my husbands room to speak with us and to reassure us that he is monitoring what is going on. That is going above and beyond what is expected. I thank him for being there and showing concern.
