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. These comments are the views and opinions of patients and are not endorsed by or necessarily reflect the views of Providence.

First of all I had to make an appt. with her in regards to an EKG which she didn't know how to read [...] After we talked a bit I asked her what an infarction (as indicated on my test results) was. She told me it was a heart attack. Well needless to say I was a bit unnerved and asked her half jokingly and half serious if I was going to die? She replied, "People Die Every Day"..... She acted very condescendingly about a Naturopath I had seen previously. I had test results from that previous Naturopath done at [...] of which she had never heard of!!!!!!!!!! Further more she didn't know how to read those tests that I brought and again spoke condescendingly of the Naturopath and their tests. Then at the end of appt. she recommended I get a blood test. I asked her where Providence blood tests are done and she acted irritated and said ask the receptionist. Needless to say I am done with this (biting my tongue)...doctor!!!

Dr. Michelbrink could improve her listening and empathy skills. It was a first visit and there was, of course, a lot to cover. However, I felt judged and uncomfortable when we talked about the insomnia and medication. She tried her best, I am sure. However, I need to see a specialist about my sleep problems and medication. She was kind enough to give me the referral to the sleep clinic I asked for, also the blood work, the results of which were sent to me via MyChart and they are very good.

Michelbrink is always very rushed and will only address question that were made on appointment notes. If I have another concern or bring something up she will always ask if I mentioned it at the time of scheduling the appointment. Sometimes the appointment is scheduled a few months back and things come up between then. It makes me feel like I cannot bring things up to her because there isn't enough time. Appointments seem very vague and rushed with her. [...]

I had taken info regarding am diet for diabetics that I wanted to discuss. At first doctor wouldn't even discuss it with me. When I mentioned it started with a cleansing week she said absolutely not without looking at the information or. Throuout my appointment I would tell her things about the diet she seemed pleased with but still wouldn't actually discuss it. I quit trying to tell her about it when she said I should show it to someone in diabetic education. It was my understanding she was going to make a referral to them, but as of today I have not heard from them.

I saw my provider as I had been sick for over 10 days in the 3.5 days prior to the appointment I developed a very sore throat. I work with the public and wanted to ensure that I was not developing strep throat and luckily I was not, my other issue was the extreme congestion in my sinus that no over the counter medication was helping with. I knew that if I did not have strep I did not need antibiotics, but twice I was admonished that a viral cold could not get antibiotics. I again stated the issues with the sinus congestion that also caused a small non-productive cough-that had the provider upset that I did not have a mask on (I was not coughing when I came in -except when the postnasal drip irritated my throat -about 1 to 2 times an hour). The provider insisted on prescribing tessalon pearls (which was sent to a pharmacy I no longer use as I had moved 2 years earlier, and no one bothered to ask me if I had changed my pharmacy or which one I was using-by the way it has been nearly 3 years since I had meds prescribed.) The medication was never sent to the pharmacy and I never got this medication. [...]

This was my first visit to Dr. Michelbrink and I was very happy in the fact that she seemed to really listen to me. I have had problems in the past getting my prescriptions with brand name drugs. I explained to her the need for this. She stated she would make sure that it would be changed and she did just that. I am so far very happy with her.

my doctor wanted me to do a home test, they did not have any, so I picked it up on the next visit. I didn't know if I were to mail it, or bring it back, since they did not have a good address. My husband took it down to the clinic, was sent several places before he got it where it needed to go. People should not assume that the patient knows exactly what is going on, sometimes things get a little hectic at an office visit, and hard to understand.
