Dr. Gisselman had already looked over my health history so she was up to date coming into my checkup. She was very positive about everything I had to say and easy to talk to. One of the best doctor visits I have ever had!

I always enjoy seeing Dr. Gisselman. She has great bedside manor and made a typically uncomfortable exam quick and easy.

I would have recommended her to anyone a year ago but she is so busy now I probably would be less inclined to refer her.

I appreciate the speedy feedback - no waiting for results.

Dr Gisselman took a lot of time with me at this (my annual) visit. I have found that she is very thorough at all my appointments and asks questions until she is satisfied that she understands what the concerns are that I am trying to express. I am extremely happy with her.

Dr. Gisselman is the best physician I have ever dealt with. She has always read my charts. She always asks the best questions. She always talks me through all options.

I am so Happy with Dr Kristin Gisselman. She is always so upbeat and she even came to the hospital to see me. Not all Dr's do that anymore. I was so surprised to see her. I just Love her!

I am new to the area and did a lot of research to find a care provider with Dr. Kristin making top of my list time and time again. I've thankful I was able to become a patient of Dr. Kristin. She's very personable and talks through issues and concerns. This visit was my second visit to see Dr. Kristin. The first was my initial visit where she listened, asked questions and offered suggestions. This time I called because I wasn't feeling the best and was able to get in within a few hours of calling. Again, I am thankful Dr. Kristin continued to top my list of care providers and grateful she was accepting patients.

This care provider, overall, is excellent. In my annual physical, one issue that I mentioned to the nurse never was addressed by the doctor. Also, since this appointment was for a full physical examination (or so I expected), I felt that the examination would have included more than it did.
October 15, 2018
I would highly recommend Dr. Gisselman.

Dr Gisselman is improving, but needs more seasoning. I can't put my finger on it, but there is something lacking. A certain depth or confidence. Maturity will alleviate some of that. Also, I don't think she is comfortable with men? I haven't had a [certain exam for a while and] I mentioned it specifically this spring and scheduled it for my fall exam.

Seems to do a less through exam than my doctors in the past.
