I used the kiosk to check in. Might want to have a way of asking for help with it if it is your first time using it. Had to interrupt clerks to say I needed help with it. Which sort of defeats the purpose. I would definitely use the kiosk next time. Liked it very much once I figured out how to use it. I did get the help I needed to use it.

She has a nice balance of science based medicine with holistic practices (meditation, vitamins, exercise) and is a good role model of self-care. Even though I hadn't made as much progress toward my goals of lifestyle changes as I had hoped, she highlighted the steps I HAD made and was encouraging.

I think Dr. Myklebust is great, but with the past few appointments I don't feel as though she is hearing what my concerns are... I didn't feel comfortable with the reason for the tests that she requested so I didn't have them done since I have a high deductible. The last time I had an issue it resulted in tests and no positive results until I went to a different doctor and it got resolved in 7 days. I wish she'd take a little more time to hear what my concerns are with my health right now, I felt a bit rushed out of there... but I know she's a great doctor, I've send other people to her and they love her.
