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!

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's bedside manner is excellent. She totally puts me at ease, talking to me before I need to undress, and summing up afterward when I am redressed. I really appreciate this.

[...] I got an appointment right away in the past year but not with my provider. It was with a PA that didn't seem to know what she was doing. It takes too long to get an appointment when needed with Dr. Sjoblom.

I would not want to change my PCP. She is very good and caring and I've been her patient since she has been in practice in this area. However, I feel that some of the office staff needs more training . Especially since they've moved to the new office. I find that using MyChart is much more likely to get a response than calling the office staff.

Wish I didn't have to wait months for a visit with my provider - I don't want to see anyone else. Also upset the office is moving to a [...] crowded new office with no parking.

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.
