No Patient Experience Reviews – Why Not?

Gundersen Health System requires a minimum of 30 completed patient surveys in a 12-month period for each clinician before posting a clinician’s rating. Industry best practice is clear that more data provides a more accurate picture of the patient experience.

Profile

Personal Interests

Samuel was born and raised in central Minnesota. He attended St. John's University where he met his fiancé while conducting chemistry research. His interest in medicine and surgery stemmed from a semester spent abroad in South Africa where he was fortunate to volunteer in a township clinic and spend time with a surgeon in a large public hospital. Samuel hopes to remain active in international mission work throughout his career. In his free time, he enjoys exploring the beautiful bluffs of the La Crosse area, playing golf, trying his hand in cooking new recipes and spending time with family and friends. After residency, Samuel hopes to return to a small town in the Midwest and practice broad-scope general surgery.
