Midsota would like to recognize Dr. Satterberg and Pam Peterson for 25 years of service this month.


“Since I first called months ago I felt like the midsota staff were on my side. I wasn't sure if insurance was going to cover my bill and I felt your staff did everything possible to have it covered! Your staff were always friendly and very very kind to me on the phone. I felt that I wasn't going through it alone and your staff were right by my side. I can't describe how satisfied I was. I was very nervous and anxious about this procedure but your staff eased my mind some. I would like to thank all of you at Midsota for doing a wonderful job!”
