Dr. Mike Tomberg is one of the best physicians I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. He is very patient, understanding, willing to listen and extremely well read and well informed. I feel very confident in the care I receive from him and the staff at VM Winslow.

August 2017
Dr. Tomberg is the best! He is very attentive and cares about my concerns. He is very easy to talk to.

August 2017
I´ve been Dr. Tomberg´s patient for over a decade now, what I like most is Dr. Tomberg is well versed in his profession, he listens, he make recommendations that are doable. Dr. Tomberg always follows up with an email on the portal. If I need to email Dr. Tomberg he gets back to me right away, if he is not able to his associate responds ASAP. Dr. Tomberg remembers the last visit and follows up. He is a credit to VM.

I am very fortunate to have Dr. Mike as my primary care doctor. I first met him at a friends picnic and in the coarse on conversation he made a pretty frank but true statement. It was at that time I decided this was the kind of doctor I wanted. Over the past few years i have followed Dr. Mike even though It´s quite the a distance for me to come. Mike is a straight shooter and tells it as it is, however because it´s so apparent how much he cares for the people he cares for it doesn´t come across as being negative but as wanting the best for me. Dr. Mike has set the bar very high for any other doctor.

Despite having a very large patient panel, Dr. Tomberg spent the right amount of time in dealing with my concerns.

Dr. Tomberg always very pleasant and upbeat. He is very thorough in review of my problems, reviews the chart and lab/xray results with me during the visit. His exam was complete for existing issues as well and preventative care issues. He had reviewed specialty care notes from other providers and was able to discuss and correlate with his findings and recommendations. Always very responsive to portal messages. Outstanding physician.

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.

January 2017

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

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.
