I've been blessed with 2 great physicians since moving to the area in *DATE*; *NAME* and now *NAME*. So pleased that he is now our family Dr. and working with the great caretakers and facilities associated with the Kalec Clinic in south Richland!

02/11/2020
I don't have a problem with *NAME*. I did call the clinic about my blood pressure and no one called me back. this was one week prior to an already scheduled appointment. the other concern I have is you can't seem to get into see the doctor, or even nurses when you are sick. So you end up at Urgent or Express Care. I am glad those options exist. Seems like you can't get into a lot of doctors here in the *LOCATION* without it taking weeks.

02/11/2020
*NAME* is a great doctor. I feel like he actually cares about me and my health. He listens very well and asks good follow-up questions. He hasn't been at the South Richland location very long, but I hope and pray he stays. I highly recommend him!

Wonderful doctor.

I went in with pretty bad abdominal pain. Dr. Halvorson examined me and felt it was diverticulitis with a possible perforation. He sent me to the hospital emergency room, calling ahead to let them know I was on my way. He didn't waste any time, and I appreciated that. There was no perforation, but it was indeed diverticulitis, and I was able to get on medication right away to clear up the nasty stuff.

Dr. Halvorsen is attentive, personable, and professional. I was pleased to know that he would be able to continue as my primary care physician when he finished his residency. We have enjoyed a good relationship and he has proven to be trustworthy, knowledgeable, and competent. I was fortunate on this particular visit to find a cancellation I could take advantage of to be seen right away by Dr. Halvorsen.

This was my first appointment with Dr. Halvorson. The appointment was made by my previous Doctor's office since my previous Doctor left the area.

10/18/2019
I was refered to him [...] I am very unpleased with the service that I got & don't feel I was anything more than a person to "run through". As of right now I am looking for some one else for a primery health care provider. I am unpleased with the service that I recived.
100

10/16/2019
As well as checking up on current conditions that are being monitored by him, he made necessary referrals for other conditions that are needed. Including making a referral so that test results will be available for another doctor to speed up the process of approval for a needed surgery by yet another doctor. I was impressed that he was helpful in that manner and it was much appreciated.
100

10/12/2019
Thank you for having an excellent new doctor as Dr. Mark Halvorson to you staff. He is a very good detailed doctor and I'm looking forward to him as my primary now and in the future. The Kadlec Family Medicine Residency that I first was assigned to the care team his was in at that time, showed me you have a excellent program within Kadlec.

After a bad visit with the ER, this last appointment with him was like a ray of sunshine. I needed help and he was thorough in making sure I was getting it. He even admitted when he wasn't familiar with something and instead of referring me, told me he would study it so that he could better help me. I felt that he really cares!

Dr. Halverson was very nice and helpful. I had a ver uncomfortable experience when my blood pressure was checked. The nurse used a BP cuff on my upper arm once with the machine that didn't work. I suggested a cuff on my wrist but he decided to take the measurement with the same cuff with the hand pump and stethoscope. Before it was over I was experiencing severe pain in my arm and by the next day I noticed a serious bruise encircling my upper arm where the cuff had squeezed so tightly. This is a first for me.
