Biography

As a family doctor, I love most seeing families. And as a physician in a small community, I enjoy becoming friends and building community with my patients.

I was born and raised in Seattle, then discovered through my first year of medical school in Pullman, Wash., that I preferred small towns. Moving to Hood River 17 years ago with my husband and raising our boys here has been a dream come true.

Outside of medicine, I enjoy time with my family in the outdoors and gardening. We ski in the winter and windsurf in the summer!

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. Sjoblom is excellent. I know when I see her for whatever the reason, I will be treated with the utmost respect and care. She is very easy to talk to, and listens to my concerns or feelings regarding my health. She is extremely knowledgeable, and I appreciate that she, when possible, will go with a conservative approach and then proceed beyond if necessary.

My only issue is that even if I recommended this office, they are so booked that it is difficult for people to get in. I got in this time the same day I called, but I have called when there are no openings for a week or two which is difficult if you need to see a doctor. Fortunately it was not critical. Additionally, while the office staff is very polite, I have received somewhat inaccurate information from them that has led to more gathering of information and trips back for paperwork.

Dr. Sjoblom is easily the very best care provider I have ever had. She makes me feel like I'm being heard and not just listened to. I never feel like she's rushed to move on to the next patient, and her bedside manner is above reproach.

Too difficult to get an appt within a reasonable amount of time - appts being made 3 months out. MD should not be taking any new patients and more providers need to be added to the practice so a person can see their primary provider in a more timely manner. MD is fabulous.
