Ratings for Dr. Melissa Oberholster
One of the best drs. I know. Knowledgable, will spend extra time if needed but does not like to waste time either n idle chit chat or something irrelevant. She used to be cheerful and patient but lately I have noticed her slipping in these areas, but still overall one of the best when it comes to doing her job..
I have been a patient of Dr. Oberholster for 3 years now. She is the best Doctor I have ever seen. She takes her time with me and answers all of my questions no matter how small. She explains my medical conditions in terms I can understand. She really cares about her patients well being and them as people and not just as numbers. I am very privileged to have her as my doctor. She is an amazing women and professional.
Dr. O is a good doctor in that she will seek input from her colleagues if she needs to make sure what exactly your problem is, she does not think she knows it all or act as though she does. Even though we only have about ten minutes each visit she will spend more time with the patient if needed, but many people don't realize they only have ten minutes and waste the doctors time with idle chit chat which leads to others having to wait. Everyone in the office is on the ball and most of the time there is not much waiting.
Melissa is amazing. Most of the time we can get same day appointments. When you show up, there is no wait time and you walk right in to be seen. She takes the time to listen and follows through with all concerns. Highly recommend her as a family doctor, they efficiency of town-site medical clinic should be an example to all other clinics in BC.
I only got to see Dr. Oberholster once, and I wish I could make her my new GP. She was compassionate, caring, took the time to listen to my concerns, understood mental health problems and helped me find the best option for birth control for me. It's a shame the clinic she works at doesn't allow patients to change doctors, she's the best doctor I've ever seen. I felt comfortable and safe with her, I've never had that experience before.
Best doctor I have ever had! She does seem to genuinely care about her patients and is very approachable. She keeps up to date with the latest research and isn't afraid to admit if she doesn't have the answer for you...if she doesn't know, she will research and find out.
