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 electronicallyand 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!

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 dothat. 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.
