Gateway Family Health Clinic

I brought my granddaughter to the Sandstone Gateway Clinic, for an examination of a possible broken arm. The receptionist was very helpful, the triage nurse was truly outstanding, the x-ray tech was outstanding as well. We saw a FNP by the name of Sam I believe. He was very caring and she felt very relaxed with him. Please give a shout out to these excellent health care providers.

I’ve had such a good experience with Gateway and wanted to be sure to let you know!
I’ve been so impressed with how caring and detail-oriented Dr.Brandli is. She is an excellent primary physician.
I’ve also had nothing but outstanding experiences with the lab at the Moose Lake location. I tend to get light headed when I get blood drawn, but when I advocate for myself and ask to lay down the staff is happy to help. I love gateway clinic.
Thank you!

Larry and I have made Gateway our primary clinic since moving to Moose Lake 23 years ago. We have both received excellent care from the clinic doctors, with Dr. Thiessen and Dr. Brandli being our doctors. They both are very easy to communicate with and go out of their way to provide the most appropriate care when needed. We appreciate all the doctors and staff. Dr. Gossett is also such an asset to our community. We hope we continue to have such expertise close to home. The receptionists and lab also deserve a shout out for their friendliness and expertise. Thank you Gateway.

Our entire family has been treated by Dr. Christensen for all ailments. He delivered all four of our children who are all married. We lived in the area for 15 years and now live in the Twin Cities. We have never had better care than what we had in Moose Lake!

I came in to your clinic yesterday in a state of emergency. I had been at work cleaning our fryer when a mound of hot debris, oil, and chemical splashed into my eye. I was in excruciating pain, couldn't see, but managed to call for help. Your clinic was the first on the road and my quickest way for emergency help. As I walked into the door your staff jumped into action, foregoing the regular order of paperwork. I was immediately rushed back to an empty room laid on the bed and your nurse and provider began flushing my eye with saline while rushing to determine what would effectively work to get my eye flushed. They were patient, kind, and more than considerate of the excruciating pain I was feeling and sincerely taking every precaution to ensure no more damage would happen. They had already involved the eye doctor from within your building who then assessed the damage to the eye. Despite the chemical and heat of the matter hitting my eye, I managed not to burn my eye, but rather the debris scratched just over half the cornea, which should heal just fine and my vision should clear. I sincerely believe it was the quick action of your staff that saved my eye and sight from further damage. I cannot thank your staff enough for their quick reaction in a very abnormal, terrifying, and stressful situation. May God bless you all and each staff member has my undying gratitude.

I just want to say that Maggie Neudecker is the best doctor I have ever had. She listens to my concerns, explains things to me in a way I can understand whats going on, remembers me and how I am when I'm well vs sick and most importantly makes me feel taken care of. I really appreciate having her as my primary. Thank you!
