Patient reviews for Dr. John Engbretson
One of the most knowledgeable and helpful practitioners I’ve ever been too.
Dr. Engbretson was very professional and very understanding. I felt very listened to and cared for. He was extremely helpful in coming up with a plan to treat my depression and anxiety. I definitely recommend Dr. E for anyone needing a primary care physician.
He was nice Yes
The staff were very nice,the nurses were all professional in there assisting to the doctor who eventually got to perform his duties. I will love to continue having them attend to my medical needs.
Quick and efficient!! Would definitely recommend to friends and family.
Excellent whatever he decides is the best approach to your problem. He is always on point with his decisions.
Great and friendly Doctor, great staff.
A great doctor who listens
First visit and everyone on the staff made me feel comfortable and welcomed. Highly recommend this team.
He was nice and patient with me. Listened to what I had to say. I felt at ease and taken care of.
Very considerate and paid careful attention to my concerns very impressed
Dr. E is great took the time to research my symptoms with me to be positive about the best course of treatment. Coolest most easy going DR ever.
He is great
Avoid! I liked the physician until I needed him! Visited doctor several times and realized shortly after last appointment (1.5 months after) he failed refill an important prescription. Two weeks prior to running out I communicated electronically and via phone. They told me I HAD NOT BEEN THERE IN OVER SIX MONTHS! This was inaccurate. I tried multiple times to correct. They failed to return my calls and electronic communication. I called doctors answering service. prior to running out of meds. Apparently Dr. John Engbretson said the same thing, he would not refill and I would have to wait for this med until I made an appointment the following week. It was not safe for me to go without the medication so I was forced to go elsewhere. Had he viewed the medical record, he would have realized I had been there and failing to refill this prescription was a danger to my health. I will move away from Tenant Healthcare and suggest you do as well. Unacceptable!
Dr. E is the best MD around !
Everything was excellent. From the lady at the front desk to the nurses and to top it off the doctor was very informative and took his time with me, He asked questions and received my feedback. I think I have found a new family!
I have ALOT of medical problems that need to be addressed and he was awesome at helping thru explaining my symptoms to him and referring me to the right doctors for the things he doesn't handle. He was very kind and patient, he actually LISTENED to what I had to say... I made him my primary care physician cuz I liked him so much.. I definitely would advise people to see him.
Personable. Pronounced. Professional. I haven't experienced a first time experience. Dr. E - is the real deal!
I moved to this area in August and needed a doctor. I am so elated that I chose Dr. Engbretson. I have never had a physician that showed so much care and concern for his patients. His professional bedside manner is amazing.
Dr E is the best!!
Professional and listens and not afraid to say need to send you to another specialist for a health issue.

Great, he always answers all of my questions and concerns
Very pleasant Dr. ...really liked him...he will definitely remain my primary care physician. I will recommend him to a friend of mine.
My visit is always informative. I am always treated with respect and Dr. Engbretson has a great personality!
I really, really want to say that Dr. Engbretson was terrible so that others will steer clear keeping my times more open because I intend to go to his office for all my future visits no matter how few. Can't do that. He's pretty great. If you can get through his ironic sense of humor you'll find a real person under that lab coat that he doesn't even wear like real doctors.
He was pleasant and good bedside manner. He took his time and listened to me when I was telling him my symptoms.
Dr. Engbretson addressed all my medical concerns and listened to everything I had to say. He offered me different options to treat my condition and I feel like we agreed as a team on how to proceed forward. I really appreciated that. He is also very up on the latest treatments and medications.
he is a great doctor
