Location and Directions


Long wait times. Understaffed. Even getting a standard preemployment UI done here will take over an hour. The medical professional I saw at the weekend walk in clinic missed the obvious ear infection I went in to have treated and suggested I rub thieves essential oil on my face for ear pain. Luckily I was able to go to Gateway the next day and get an antibiotic. Cannot recommend bringing yourself or your family here, sorry. (2 months ago)

We brought our son to Essentia Health Sandstone due to his fever and terrible cough late at night. We received excellent care that was responsive and timely. I would recommend this facility to anyone. It's a beautiful new facility too! (6 months ago)

Worst experience I had in the doctors office didn’t have any record of me ever being there and I had to pay a co-pay before they would even see me would not even bill it to me (2 weeks ago)

Very nice better then there old one (5 months ago)

I went to the emergency room with bad pain in two of my teeth. I had begun to run a temp of 101.1 ànd I have had 3strokes and my head was hurting so I figured my blood pressure was real high and I have high blood pressure as it is so I didn't want to have another stroke. I waited 20_25 minutes in the room before the doctor came in. I was told my blood pressure was 200something over 100something but the doctor said that is okay and did not ask about my fever, took a look in my mouth and said I will give you antibiotics and was gone. The nurse was moaning about how many allergies she had to go over with me...she said oh my god. My pain was never discussed which I am sure attributed to my blood pressure which by the way, set off the alarm on the blood pressure machine. The doctor spent 2 seconds with me. I never knew the doctors name. It was not on the paperwork given to me anywhere. The nurse gave me one dose of antibiotic and said we could pick up the rest at our pharmacy in the morning and that it would be waiting for us but when my husband went to get it, it was not there so the pharmacy had to call around go finally get it and we couldn't even tell them who the doctor was I saw. It was one big hassle! I will never return to your facility. Unprofessional and pure disgusting to me and my husband. I'm afraid I could die there. (8 months ago)
