  Overall Patient Rating - June 2019
Dr. Tomberg is an absolutely amazing practitioner. I feel incredibly lucky and fortunate to have been recommended to him years ago by a friend. His care and concern and the time that he takes with each patient to really evaluate their concerns and their well-being and provide helpful suggestions and provide advice on additional preventative measures that can be taken seem to unfortunately becoming more rare in the primary care field. He is far and above the best doctor I have ever had and I feel like he really takes every patients well-being to heart.

This primary care provider is a true gem
  Overall Patient Rating - April 2019
as I tell VM staff, we cannot let the truth out about Michael Tomberg else he will be flooded with so many patients one would not be able to see him unless scheduled a year in advance! Of course I would recommend him above all others -- but only to family or friends. He is without reservation the BEST general practitioner I have EVER encountered in my 74 years.
  Overall Patient Rating - April 2019
This doctor was my PCP at his prior clinic. He is rightfully popular, and while I am confident that he will coordinate with his team to fit me into his schedule for other than an annual physical, I would not recommend him to others outside my immediate family unless his patient load decreased and he personally asked me, in which case I would do so without hesitation.
  Overall Patient Rating - April 2019

There has been a change in practice where there is a PA or someone also in the room taking the notes. By having this third party in the room also it's harder expressing the concerns i have.

Dr. Tomberg has always given me exceptional care and his concern and care plan always reflect a genuine interest in my well-being.

my Dr.s ability to do what numerous others could not, is a testament to the excellence of my being valued as a patient, and being treated as a whole patient, and not just a page in a book. we share a collaboration on my care and not a my way or the highway approach. that's it.

  Overall Patient Rating - March 2019
Dr. Tomburg is the best ! he is attentive and really 'present' . He is a very good listener and states back what he heard to make sure he understands what the patient (me) wanted to communicate.. he then offers his own opinions on the subject. He also got back to me the evening after my appointment with an answer to a question I asked which he didn't have knowledge of at the visit. He and his assistant were naturally adept at helping me feel comfortable during the examination. I feel fortunate to have him for my primary care physician.!
  Overall Patient Rating - March 2019
Dr Tomberg's presence emanates total trust. His extensive knowledge, respect and empathy for patient concerns, and incredible ability to hear it all...amazing! I left the appointment with the confidence gained from understanding the extent of my injury and the path to healing.
  Overall Patient Rating - March 2019
Dr. Tomberg is an excellent physician. He listens, shows genuine concern for his patients, diagnoses with care and attention to patient concerns and preferences and always follows up.
  Overall Patient Rating - March 2019
Dr. Tomberg is excellent in all facets of care. I feel grateful he is my primary. Dr. T is always upbeat and enthusiastic - not like some doctors I've seen that are calling it in. Dr. T is genuinely interested in my care and positive outcomes. If something isn't working, he will try something else. I feel he listens to what I say.
