Dr. Tomberg is truly one of the very best doctors we have ever experienced caring for me and my family, he always enters the exam room prepared and with a warm smile. Dr. Tomberg is an exceptional doctor he is inclusive and never condescending, explaining treatment options in terms that you can understand, most of all he makes us feel like we are his only patient(s) that day. Our family is healthier because he is part of our health maintenance team.

January 2017
Dr. Tpmberg spent considerably more time than the allotted appointment time to address the concerns I have about managing my health and behavioral issues since the stroke that affected my thalamus. He is the major player in my recovery from the stroke, giving me reassurance and hope that I am doing all the activities that I can to minimize the stroke damage. He convinces me that he cares about my well-being and my successes in recovering.

one of the best doctors I´ve ever had

November 2016
Dr. Tomberg was excellent. One of the best interactions with a doctor I have had. Very pleasant and had a great attitude.

November 2016
The myvirginiamason website has been critical to ensure that the doctor and others at the clinic have a clear idea of whatever is going on with my dad. The doctor or someone else responds promptly. This is very important as it alerts them to issues we´re having with my dad. Because of my dad´s short-term memory loss, he doesn´t remember if he has had a fall or if there are other issues. He thinks he is just fine (and mostly he is!), but doesn´t remember how much he drinks alcohol and exaggertates how much he exercises. He is not being untruthful, just doesn´t remember.

October 2016
Dr. Tomberg´s always great. I have complete trust in him and that he understands me as a patient.

October 2016
I believe Dr. Tomberg is an amazing doctor. He seems to be very interested in my health, and me as a person. I truly feel Dr. Tomberg should be the "gold standard" by which other MD´s are measured.

October 2016
I usually don´t do follow up surveys, but felt compelled to let you know how highly I regard Dr. Tomberg and the VM staff. I come from Eastern Washington to maintain my care at the Winslow Clinic, and with Dr. Tomberg.

October 2016

Dr Tomberg also has a good sense of humor. Rare it seems with MD´s and PA´s these days.

My problem wasn´t major but Dr. Tomberg was attentive and thorough. It´s been years since a doctor actually had me say "ahhhh" and other "basics," and I appreciated him checking out my respiratory symptoms.

When I left after my last appointment with Dr. Tomburg, I said, "I just saw the best doctor in the universe!" Perhaps a bit overly-dramatic, but a great feeling nonetheless to have been listened to, respected and given choices and suggestions for my care. He encouraged email to report any challenges, or questions, between visits. There was follow up from the staff. We are so grateful for the care have received.

November 2015
I have been going to Dr. Mike for over 10 years. Because of the passion he has for my well being as a person i have followed him to Virginia Mason (I live in Kirkland). When others ask why i go all the way to Bainbridge I tell them the care i get from Dr. Mike is rare and well worth the time it takes for me to travel to my appointment.

Dr. Tomberg is always friendly, very talkative (in a positive manner). He´s clearly very well-trained and knowledgeable. I perticularly appreciate his "wholistic" approach to health management.

He also is my son´s primary care giver and he feels the same way. He relates well with people and puts them at ease no matter the circumstances. He definitely deserves the Doctor of Century award!!!

July 2015
My last doctor never listened to what I had to say and never spent enough time with me; Dr. Tomberg was the exact opposite and a very refreshing experience.

Promoting wellness through mindfulness is an incredibly powerful and therapeutic way to help prevent disease and sickness.”
