I was being seen in this office by another provider that I did not feel was a good fit for me. Upon the recomendation of personal contacts and patients I see in my clinics, I decided to switch to this provider and I am overwhelmingly happy with this decision

Dr. Myklebust is out of network on my [...] health insurance. Because she is most importantly caring,kind, listens and understands me, and professional I am fine with paying out of network charges in order to have her as my primary care doctor. [...] She is definitely a provider that has a deep insight to more than her patient's physical health needs.

This was not a typical visit. During previous visits Dr. M and I always have had great dialog concerning my health. On this visit she seemed uninterested. I had questions concerning issues I have been having and there was not an opportunity to ask the questions.

I've been very happy with the care I've received from this office. regarding the lack of follow up regarding blood work, I use MyChart to receive updates on test results, and Dr. Myklebust also used MyChart to inform me of the results. While it wasn't personal contact, it was what I wanted and expected.

I was very disappointed with my visit to your clinic. The clerical and medical assistant were helpful, friendly and efficient. However, the care I received from the providerdid not meet my expectations for a preventative/wellness appointment. I felt uncomfortable, embrassed and self-conscious while discussing my mental health history. I was not provided with a thorough examination or given any follow up care directions.

I hadn't been to a primary care doctor since high school, I'm 36. I was so nervous and stressed and she made the experience so relaxing for me, she listened, had great input to my questions and was so kind. THANK YOU!!!

I am just in the beginning phase of developing a medical relationship with Monica. I kinda felt that she rushed me in the last appointment and that maybe I should have cancelled it prior. When I asked her further questions, she said `that is all that I can do for you`. I felt `dismissed`. Otherwise, I had really liked her.

Dr. Mykelbust noticed my "trigger finger" without me telling her. She referred me to a surgeon.

05/03/2017
Her MA [...] is well paired with Dr. Myklebust. She mirrors and reflects Dr.Monica's high regard fro her patients. Dr. Monica in my opinion holds her patients in high regard and treats them like people.. She brings a smile, compassion and connection to each appointment. I hope she is recognized for this by her peers and administrators. I have experience providers (My previous primary doctor [...] in the past,) before I was with her as my primary..I felt like I was just an appointment(with my primary provider) to get though as fast and as immediately as they could, like a such to the finish line? Where ever that may be, stating it philosophically. I feel like Dr. Monica's staff assists her appropriately, where as it seemed like in Dr. [...]'s office, the staff was the provider. So my point being, there appears to be a perfect balance in this team of people at Happy Valley.

This was my first visit with Dr. Myklebust, because my previous PCP quit the practice. She was very easy to talk with and asked extensive questions about my health history. I did not have specific concerns about my health, but wanted to get a new primary care provider. I am very confident in the care she can provide and look forward to a long patient/doctor relationship.
100

04/26/2017
Dr. Myklebust is absolutely the best GP or family practice physician I have had during my adult lifetime (which is quite a long time). I frequently recommend her to others who are searching a top notch medical provider.

04/24/2017
Both personable and professional.

provider understands my chronic back pain and why I try alternative med in addition to traditional western med. together we have developed a plan of lifestyle, exercises, diet, accupuncture, deep massage, and occasional western medical intervention when I'm bedridden.

04/06/2017
Dr. Monica is very open to natural practices in health care and will not over medicate unless it is necessary. I like this very much because I personally do not like prescription drugs and will only take them when it is necessary. I am and have used alternative medicine and find it has been successful.

03/29/2017
rare to find a doctor that is respectful and still somewhat stern about health matters. even more rare to have a doctor you only occasionally see but still remembers personal details andis genuinely interested in what you say and feel. she has never been dismissive like many have been. I have and will continue to recommend her

I've seen doctor for years for my annual physical, and I've been happy up until this year. I got new insurance, [...], through my new employer. The doctor hardly examined me at all this year. I don't know if she was told to do that or that's what my benefits actually call for. I wasted my time going there. Next year I will try a [...] provider to see if that's any better.

Dr. Myklebust's nurse is the best nurse I have ever had in over 25 years! She is patient, kind, thorough and very knowledgeable about procedures and best practices. She put me immediately at ease and that has never happened before. I am fortunate she was there for my appointment.
