Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

Dr. Lisa and her staff are ALWAYS very interested and tuned in to my health issues and concerns. It is a happy, pleasant office to visit as a patient.

Dr. Michelbrink is a very good doctor. She explains everything and cares about me and my health as I get older. I am motivated by her which helps me strive to take good care of myself. She allows me to fix myself instead of over medicating a health issue that can be corrected by diet and exercise. I appreciate that from her.

Talks more than listens. It feels like getting everything in the computer is more urgent than comminicating with the patient. I do get all my prescriptions etc. as needed. Discussing how the Meds affect me is not a strong point.

I met Dr. Michaelbrink [...] 2015 to establish care. That initial visit was great, but the next time I saw her [...] couldn't have been more different. They squeezed me in for an appointment, which I was extremely greatful for due to how ill I am, but then the entire appointment she rushed me. Every time I tried to talk and explain my symptoms I was cut off. [...] I am still sick 7 days later and have chosen to go somewhere else for care because I don't want to go through that again. If they were that booked, they should NOT have fit me in. [...] I'll be establishing primary care somewhere else going forward.

I feel that the doctor is on a very tight schedule, she was able to take care of a matter I would normally have had to make another appointment for and this was a surprise. She did show care and concern, this means a lot to me.

She seemed fine. And was nice enough. I didn't feel like she made me feel very comfortable. She would abbreviate prescription names ( that I have taken before ) and seemed annoyed when I didn't know what she was talking about, because I don't know the abbreviations. I told her how sick I was feeling and she just took a light and looked into my ears, nose and throat and said "everything looks fine to me". It didn't feel fine, because I have had serious sinus pain and it was affecting my work. I don't like how every doctor I ever see just takes a look at symptoms, give me a random antibiotic and says good luck, I think it might be this. At no point do they ever actually try to find out what is wrong. It feels like they don't care enough to take the time. Hopefully this is just because this was the first appointment with her and was more about establishing care. But I don't appreciate when they just try to run out really quick when I'm not finished talking.

The provider was good, but the office messed up my info. with someone else and I had to call several times about my referral for lab work and getting my info. straightened up.

Dr. Michelbrink spent extra time that was not allotted to make sure that all my concerns were addressed. I really appreciated the time she took as I know that it put her somewhat behind on the rest of her patients. I will be more understanding next time I have to wait a few extra minutes. She tries to get to the bottom of the problem. I really appreciate that.

When I called for my asthma med. because I was short of breath the person on the phone gave me the wrong information from the Dr. told me I have to see her but can't for TWO days. She told them she ordered my med that day but they didn't tell me that. so this very important information was not told to me so very poor communication! [...]
