Complaint Management

If we fail to meet your expectations, we invite you to share your concerns regarding treatment, patient safety and quality of care. You may voice concerns by:

  • Speaking to any Mayo Clinic Health System employee
  • Speaking to your care provider or physician
  • Speaking to the director of the clinic or hospital department
  • Completing a comment card found throughout the facility.
  • Completing a Press Ganey survey, which is randomly mailed after patient appointments.

We encourage you to resolve complaints immediately at the time of service. If you feel that any of your concerns/complaints have not been resolved to your satisfaction, you may initiate a formal complaint and notify the Patient Experience Department by email to, writing or calling:

You will be contacted by the Patient Experience Department to acknowledge receipt of your complaint. The information will be reviewed internally, and a written response will be sent to you within a reasonable timeframe. The letter will have the name of the contact person for any further correspondence and communication, and that individual will provide a response with the resolution upon completion of the review.
