John Engbrestson is a wolf in sheep's clothing. I visited his facility for the first time ever for a Wellness Exam and I made this very clear on the front end that it was the ONLY thing I was there for. He ended up charging me for the Welness AND a "normal" office visit. He claimed that we discussed things that we did not. I contacted his office MULTIPLE times requesting a corrected bill. I even had my insurance company contact his office. Finally a staff member in email and on the phone said to NOT pay it, that it has been taken care of (multiple times). However, this never happened and I got sent to PRE-collections. I spent more time on this stupid little bill (more out of principle than anything) than I would care to admit. ON TOP of that, I was never called and we never discussed the results of my lab. John Engbretson MD stuck it to me for a false bill, I would stay away from his practice other wise you might get more than you bargain for with absolutely no recourse. I found and booked through Zocdoc and I wish I hadn't. Sincerest regrets.

Very pleasant demeanor, staff was great as well. Beside manner was spot on. He updated me on some of the meds I had been taking for some time. Very understanding with a total focus on my well-being. Had prescriptions ready to pick up the same afternoon. He has called twice with updates and advisement. Interesting, we are new to Memphis and I actually met him in a restaurant, and remembered he was a medical doctor. I reached out and am very glad I did.

I was a new patient in July 8. The office staff was professional, the wait was not long at all, the nurses in the back noticed my nervousness and calmed me down with her gentle spirit (Rachel), & Dr. E was also calming and friendly.

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.
