Tanya Smith is an amazing resource in our lives. I am so glad she is at ACMC Health. She and her amazing colleagues truly go the extra mile to help their patients. She has surpassed of all of our expe...ctations as our family provider. Thank you Tanya, you deserve to receive all the praise and accolades coming to you in life. Thank you again for everything. You’re a 5-Star Superstar me.

Horrible service at the clinic and horrible staff in the buisness office. Anytime I call to ask questions to the buisness office none of them know the answer and none of them are willing to find the ...answer for me they just say they don't know. Will never step foot in this place again. See More

I absolutely love the doctors in urgent care. I’ve decided to switch to family practice for a new primary doctor. I don’t care for any of them there at ACMC and I have no regrets of my decision but care and their doctors are wonderful See More

I was very ill for about 5 days and decided on a Monday to go in because I didn't want the rest of the week to be as awful as the week prior. I went to a different facility (other than acmc) where I ...was told if I hadn't been sick for 7 days they couldn't do anything and I should come back in a couple days if I wasn't better. I called my husband crying because I was so miserable and couldn't take more time off of work. He told me, "go to acmc" (literally 10 minutes after my previous appointment) so I did... I was treated so great and given antibiotics, which helped me SO MUCH and got me feeling like a human again!! Thank you acmc for listening and doing all you could to get me back on my feet!! See More

I just wasted 2 hours to get a test done and never happened because they don't listen to what normally works for someone.... I've been sick for a week and in intense amount of pain due to this illness...... I go in because they are concerned about my gallbladder... I wait for the CT scan and do what they want me to do prior to it. Then to find out I need to do all this so they want to reschedule after wasting my time. I am diabetic and can't eat without getting sick!!! I walked out extremely upset and they still wanted to reschedule... I said nope not happening especially if you guys can't listen to the patient and rather have them suffer even with a chronic illness. I've never experienced such poor care from this clinic but the last few weeks it's been nothing but a struggle to get listened too. If I can't eat because I get sick and I'm diabetic that is a major health issue waiting to happen.... I will be finding a better facility and dr because I will not go to these clowns again even if I am on my death bed!!! They cannot be trusted when it comes to patient care!!! See More

Went into urgent care today in Redwood, the board in lobby said "less than 15 minute wait". I understand that is an estimate and people have questions and what not, but to sit there an hour and a half... and have an employee admit that "normally 4 doctors are on duty, but today we have just 1", what a joke....someone should learn how to schedule better...glad this is not my primary place.

Acmc "f'd" up my husbands life more than you'll ever know and played head games with him when now he has to have infusions done 4hours away from home every 8 weeks that only costs over $7,000.00 a pop..., plus we could lose him over this within time, they failed to get my mother the treatment and medical care she needed and now because of it she's resting in peace in her grave, they never billed my insurance right so the bills were my responsibility which was no picnic paying that off!
I really wish they would get their act straight and not act like nothing happened or put patients in a vulnerable spot, this is beyond maddening what my whole family has gone through with ACMC!!!

Once I am well enough I am going to have to choose a new primary care physician and clinic. Monday October 2 until Friday October 6 I was at your clinic three times twice to see my primary and once wa...s follow up on October 6 with an urgent care provider as requested by my primary who was going to be out of the office that day. I knew I was sick enough even on October 2nd to be admitted to the hospital and knew I needed supplemental oxygen and stronger meds for severe pneumonia. My oxygen sats were in the 80's or right at 90 % (the 90 was the reading they put on my chart/record) only because the 79% and 86% were "too low and couldn't be right even though they were. The morning of October 6, I seen an urgent care provider as I said my primary had requested and was told I would not be admitted to the hospital in fear of me catching something else. My oxygen sats had averaged 86% for a whole week prior to this day. I was told by this provider to get out of bed and do something that day so on a whim I felt something bad was going to happen because of how sick I was so I drove all the way to the cities. Sure enough I ended up not being able to breathe and had to call 911 and leave my car in a grocery store parking lot. I was sent to the hospital is Shakopee, MN and then transferred to Abbott Northwestern and spent 6 days there because of how sick I was. I had infectious (bacterial) atypical pneumonia nonspecific area of my lungs. They told me it was very, very sick and good thing I got help when I did. I got all kinds of steroids, pain meds, nebulizer treatments, acmc even knew I hadn't eaten in I days as I told them that and my potassium and magnesium were low from starving from being so sick I had to get meds to replenish those. I was on supplemental oxygen 5 of those 6 days continuously and the last day was only at night due to my o2 sats getting too low when I slept. They also still get too low at night and when I do too much and I'm still sick but well enough to be 30 years old on oxygen at home. So I tried for 5 days to be admitted and it never happened. (The hospital is helping me with what happened there already as for how things went wrong treatment wise there and won't bring that up here). Another issue is on Monday, October 2 when I seen my primary for being so sick he sent me to the hospital for a ct scan of my lungs and IV fluids and help for severe chest pain. I strictly told him at my clinjc appointment to NEVER have me take NSAIDS ever again because all the doctors here including my primary always told me to take ibuprofen and sometimes ketorolac prescriptions (pill form of toradol) all NSAIDS for all pain I've had. I ended up with TWELVE small bowel ulcers, a duodenal fissure, and my stomach was bleeding a little from excessive NSAID use as no ACMC doctors cared to help me properly. (I have it on paper from mayo clinic in Rochester gastroenterology that NSAIDS caused that and how they all of a sudden went away on their own within a couple months of stopping taking all NSAIDS). Well as I was saying when I was getting the IV fluids Monday, October 2, my primary had them give me toradol not even hours after I had told him no more NSAIDS EVER at the clinic. I was so out of it from being low on oxygen all weekend and not sleeping because I was so sick and coughing so bad i didn't realize that happened at that time. It is even listed on my allergies because of those adverse reactions to them. This is in no way acceptable and I was not treated fairly as a patient and you need to revamp your customer service and how you take care of your patients. See More

I normally do not write bad reviews, however; the last three experiences with ACMC have been awful and disappointing.

On New Year's Eve I had kidney stones, I waited for awhile in the waiting area. W...hen I finally got in the room the nurse said "Well we are closing in 45 minutes so go to the ER. I asked if I could have my normal medications for when I have stones. The nurse said "NO, that's ridiculous! You need tests done! I'm sending your paperwork to the ER."

The ER is very expensive, so being the poor college student I am, I sucked up the pain. This was the third time I have had stones and they refused to give me any medications.

Finally, after a day of waiting I went in and saw the doctor, asked for my normal medications when I have stones, got them right away! I thought life is good, I wish I could have felt better 2 days ago! Why didn't they just listen to my requests when I came in the first time?

A few months later... I got a huge bill for my New Years Eve visit when they refused to help me and sent me to the ER! They said "We coded it wrong."

The last THREE VISITS have been "coded" wrong and I've been charged way more than I should have been. Health care is very expensive the way it is.... and to be charged the wrong amount multiple times is very disappointing. I am letting you know because I work in management. When things go wrong, I like to know so they can be improved, so others do not go through the same issuss. I'm am hoping no other patients have to experience this same issue.

Thanks for fixing the issues but I will no longer return to ACMC.

Today I went in to the west clinic with foot pain. Had to get blood drawn and the lady that did it was so wonderful. I can't express how much I appreciate the way she handled it. I'm scared of needles... and blood. She talked me through everything and made me feel so much better. Awesome clinic in litchfield See More

First experience with ACMC and was impressed! There was a wait at urgent care which I expected in the middle of cold and flu season. They must have been staffed appropriately as patients moved along a...t a good pace. I had the privilege of seeing Dr. Pietka, loved her! She was friendly, thorough and gave me answers. See More

It gets really frustrating when every appointment you have takes three times as long as it should because this clinic tries to squeeze in as many people as they can in one day.

In most instances new London Acmc is excellant. On Friday may 30 the clinic was closed from noon to five which I did not know. I called 3 times and the recording said do to a high call volume ect ect....
That message should have been updated to say the clinic was closed from noon to five. Plain and simple.

Have you had the chance to meet this week's Featured Employee, Amber Engesser? She works as a nurse at our Marshall clinic. Learn a little about Amber and her role at ACMC...

"I am a Certified Medical Assistant, and have worked here for a little over 2 years. I started at ACMC as a float nurse and have been station support for pediatrics/internal medicine for almost a year. Before coming to ACMC, I worked in several different daycares, all in the infant room, where I cared fo...r many infants (usually up to 8 at time!) I also subbed in several schools as a Paraprofessional.

Currently, I help all of the other nurses and doctors with their patients and messages. I take vitals, answer phone messages, and anything else the other nurses need!

The most rewarding part of my job is knowing that the smile on my face may help calm anyone who is nervous about being in the clinic or who just isn't feeling well. The most challenging part of my job is seeing babies or children who are really sick.

I love my job here and the amazing people that I work with. My coworkers are such fun people and they have taught me so much in my 2 years working at ACMC.

I grew up in Tracy, MN and graduated high school in 2005. It took me a really long time to figure out exactly what I wanted to do in life. I got my A.S. in child development and worked as a child care provider and a Paraprofessional for many years before going back and getting my A.S. and certification as a Medical Assistant. I now live in Cottonwood with my boyfriend, Terrance and our 1-year old son Colt.

When I am not at work, I like to spend time with my family and friends. We like to be outdoors, fishing or hunting. I do more fishing then hunting. I also like to sing karaoke occasionally if I get the chance! Something people might not know about me is that I have been swimming with manatees twice!"

There are many things in our life that can prevent us from getting a good night’s sleep. Maybe you’re the parent of young children or your work schedule changes frequently. No matter what the cause, we’ve all had those groggy mornings where caffeine is the only thing getting you through the day.

You may think that skimping on sleep is no big deal. You’ll catch up eventually, right?

If you have one bad night of sleep, you’ll likely wake up feeling irritable, sluggish and dow...nright grumpy. This is because your brain is exhausted and functioning at a decreased level. This can make tasks more difficult and increases your odds of making critical errors.

But what happens if you aren’t getting adequate sleep for several days or even weeks in a row? The truth is, sleep deprivation can be extremely harmful to our overall health. People who don’t get the recommended hours of sleep regularly put themselves at risk for several serious conditions.

Similar to air or food, our bodies need sleep in order to function. When your head hits the pillow your body is healing itself, restoring the natural chemical balance we need. When our body lacks the sleep it needs, our immune systems struggle and has a hard time hitting off illness. It also becomes more difficult to recover when we do get sick if your sleep patterns are out of sorts.

Sleep is also important for our mental health. If you aren’t giving your brain the rest it needs, you could experience memory loss, difficulty with concentration, and shifts to your overall mood. Chronic sleep deprivation can even lead to the development of anxiety and depression.

As for our overall health, lack of sleep puts us at a higher risk of developing heart disease and diabetes. This is because our bodies can’t regulate critical functions such as the release of insulin and our blood pressure when it hasn’t had adequate rest.
In addition, weight gain is also associated with those sleepless nights. When we don’t get enough sleep, the chemicals that normally communicate that we’re full, aren’t getting to the brain. This means more snack attacks and accidentally overindulging.

So how much sleep do we actually need? Most healthy adults require between 7 and 9 hours of sleep each day. But it’s important to note that just crawling into bed for 7 hours isn’t always enough. Our bodies need quality sleep meaning that it must enter each stage of the sleep cycle. To help yourself sleep more soundly, avoid the use of alcohol, nicotine, and distractions such as light and sound that could wake you during the night (for most of us, this means turning off the tv).

How can you tell if you are getting enough sleep? Here are a few indicators:
-Hit your snooze in the morning.
-Feel sluggish or need a nap during the day.
-Feel tired in meetings, while driving, or after meals.

Winter can put a damper on your normal workout routine. It's important to find ways to stay active even on these snowy, cold days.

Some of our staff find time on their lunch breaks to walk the halls at our clinics. This is also a great way to feel refreshed and energized throughout the day.

Pictured are staff members from our Willmar clinic: Trista Kavanagh, Julie Jorgenson, Marilyn Gilman and Pat Hagen



Here are a few tips for creating a walking routine in your office:
-Find a walking partner/group you can depend on for a daily walk.
-Leave a pair of walking shoes at your desk.
-Create an indoor and outdoor route so you have options depending on the weather.
-Have fun!
