Student Testimonials

Student Health impacts many students each day. Here are a few testimonials from students on campus!

“I wanted to take a second to say thank you to you and your dedicated staff for how they treated my friend who was hit by a car on campus earlier today. Your staff made sure that she was cared for immediately and was comfortable in the environment. The nurses and doctors were incredibly friendly and understanding. I appreciate that they also took the time to contact ISU PD to file a police report given that the incident was a hit and run.

It means a lot to me as a student to see how far Thielen Student Health has come since my days as a freshman. It means even more to me as a student leader that when I directed her to the Health Center to receive treatment, she was given the highest quality of care. Please, tell your staff (receptionists, nurses, and doctors) thank you from us–they’ve made us as proud as ever to attend Iowa State.”

Cody Smith, Vice President, Student Body

“We don’t know how to begin to thank you. The help and support of you and your staff has literally enabled our daughter to embrace and LOVE life at Iowa State. She is so happy and engaged and the preventive medicine is working great so far. You are an answered prayer. We want you to know just how much we appreciate your expertise and compassion, and how comforted we feel knowing she is in your care away from home. Please accept our deepest appreciation and gratitude. Your career is not an easy one, but it is so needed and valuable.”

Elizabeth Schroeder “Thielen Student Health Center was extremely helpful and flexible for me when I needed to be seen. I was miserable with a sore throat on my way back to ISU from home on the Monday after break and when I called at 3:15, they were able to accommodate my schedule and see me in the clinic at 3:45. Not only did they work me in, they were running on time, and the practitioner was a sweet, caring lady who listened to my story and made sure I received the proper care. I was also given a prescription to be filled, and although the pharmacy was busy, they were able to fill my prescription and chat with me in a timely manner.”

My nurse was kind, conversational, and personal and the doctor (I think her name was Kristin) was fantastic. Both used their time efficiently, but did not make the appointment seem rushed. They knew exactly what they were doing. I have been battling a cold, now sinus infection for 2 weeks, and the prescription has already helped tremendously! Thank you for providing exceptional care for the students at ISU. I (and my parents) am very appreciative!!”
