Dr. Tomberg is the best; he is enthusiastic, friendly, caring, and I sincerely believe he cares deeply about me as both his patient and as a person. He always gives the high-level and the layman´s medical explanation, and does a great job prescribing medication and the other steps needed to be taken to deal with an issue, and uses notepads to make sure they´re easy to remember. Even though he is busy, I never feel rushed or that he is impatient if I have an extra question or two to ask. There is nothing more I could ask for in a primary care physician, and I am lucky to be under his care

Dr. Tomberg remembers the last visit and follows up. He is a credit to VM.
July 2017
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.

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.
