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 Michelbrink spent a good deal of time with me on my initial visit to meet her. She was very comprehensive in reviewing my chart and listened to concerns

Dr. Michelbrink is a caring partner in this adventure we call life. Among the dozens of doctors I've worked with in the past 67 years, she is the one I respect the most.

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.

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! [...]

I got in right on time. Front office staff were friendly and efficient. Dr. Michelbrink is the best -- no nonsense, careful attention to my concerns, ordered necessary tests, prescribed required medications, discussed a "plan for the coming months," and sent me on my way. I'm delighted.

I felt she was in a major rush, spoke very fast, would not listen to what my concerns were about my health or how I felt. Seemed to me like she just wanted me out of the room as fast as possible. I'm going to try Dr. Michelbrink for a few more times to see maybe it was just a bad visit & see if it gets any better with another appointment.
