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.

This care provider is excellent, takes time to listen to me, asks important questions and remembers my medical history. She is tuned into my emotional as well as physical needs. Being highly intelligent and intuitive has led to great decisions for my health care. I feel well taken care of by here. Her bed side manner is exceptional showing care and concern when needed and having a sense of humor when appropriate. I trust her completely. She is the best MD I have ever had.

Do not like that the Dr. is on the computer instead of engaging you face to face. And after my exam when she was exiting the room, she stated you would probably feel a lot better if you lost 20-30 pounds and abruptly left the room, I understand that this is true it was just the way it was presented to me.

She seemed friendly enough - asked many right questions. But nothing, NOT one, of the health concerns I had were dealt with. After the interrogation, I felt the questions were to match her pre-conceived notion about me - the patient. In a sense I felt I the questions were asked to fulfill her pre-conceived notion about me.

Dr. [...] was my primary care physician. This appt. was a consultation with Dr. Myklehurst to see if I wanted her for my primary care and is the only time I've seen her. She spent the time trying to read my history while I was with her. Seems very nice but I felt she should have reviewed my chart before, not during, our appointment.

This comment is from [...]'s daughter & caregiver. [...] has dementia. Dr. Monica handles her communication with Mom and me tactfully and knows how and when to direct a comment or question to Mom that she might understand. When Mom's condition was not as far along, we lived in CA and the doctors we saw had a tendency to just talk to me and bypass her like Mom wasn't in the room, which made her angry. Dr. Monica maintains a good balance of interaction with both of us and Mom has never complained. When we leave, she says "she's nice".

I'm very happy with the fact that she is willing to incorporate Eastern Medicine practices in with Western. I feel she cares for the "whole" person/body without pushing drugs that are not needed. She works to help the patient be healthy, naturally.

I don't come to the doctor often. I came to my doctor with multiple issues and she seemed to just brush them off. Then I go to the pharmacy and was told the prescription was cheaper over the counter. If I would've known what pill it was, I would've told her I already have prilosec otc at home. She has been an ex excellent doctor up until this appointment.
