Re: Female Primary Doctor
Michelle Bricker is the most skilled and caring doctor I've ever
encountered, and I believe all the doctors in that group are women. My
health plan is with Alta Bates, and I had to find another doctor when she
joined John Muir -- switching sure was tough! Note that she's an
internist not a family practitioner, in case that matters. 140 Brookwood

still miss Dr. Bricker
Hi - I've seen the post on the website for EBIM, but am told
that, while none of the dr's are accepting new patients now,
that Dr. Bricker *may* be in a month or so. Does anyone have
comments on Dr. Bricker that they would be willing to share?
Also it is possible (though doesn't sound very likely) that Dr.
Bloxham will accept new patients later in the year. Any new
comments on Dr. Bloxham? If you prefer, you could email me
privately. thanks very much
Dr Bricker has been my doctor for 2 years now. I like her quite
a bit. I have found her to be smart, thorough, and responsive.
She has insisted on office visits for illnesses for which my
previous doctor would have issued a prescription over the phone.
I like that kind of thoroughness. Good luck.
Dr. Bricker became my physician after Dr. Unger left Alta Bates. I think she's
terrific - warm, responsive, detailed, knowledgeable. I highly recommend her.

I'm researching primary care physicians. We just switched
from Blue Shield to Healthnet HMO, and I have to change
I'd like to stay with the Alta Bates
Medical Group. I'd be interested in hearing people's
opinions of Anna Bloxham and Michele Bricker who work at East
Bay Internal Medicine in Orinda with Dr. Ann Stevens (who
comes highly recommended by a lot of people, but who is
not accepting new patients).
I am a member of HealthNet HMO and my primary care physician is
in the East Bay Internal Medicine group. I saw Dr. Anna Bloxham
once last year when my doctor couldn't see me for an urgent care
issue. I loved Dr. Bloxham! She has a very reassuring manner
and she is really personable. I think she'd be a great choice.
(As a side note, I have been very happy with the practice in
An EBIM Patient
Regarding Dr. Anna Bloxham at East Bay Internal Medicine. I am a
patient of Dr. Bloxham's and I like her very much. I originally
saw another physician in the same group who worked such limited
hours that I practically always had to see another physician
anyway. One of the others I saw was Anna Bloxham. I find her very
proactive and concerned with my total health, not just the
disease of the moment. She is very caring and addresses difficult
issues tactfully, with respect, but clearly, so that you
understand that the issue is important. She is not especially
good at answering non-urgent phone messages, but I have recently
begun emailing her, at her suggestion, and she responds
promptly. The practice is very well organized and I have had few
problems getting referrals in a timely manner. The office staff
are very friendly and helpful, as well. Dr. Bloxham is also
willing to schedule early morning appointments (before the office
actually opens) for certain procedures such as pap smears, and is
very good about fitting patients in, sometimes having them
schedule to see NPs and then coming in during the exam. Although
in general I feel the quality of health care is seriously
slipping, I find that Dr. Bloxham remains caring and engaged,
despite the horrible pressures under which physicians work these
a satisfied patient
i have an *excellent* MD! Ann Stevens has been my wonderful, smart and thorough doctor for the last few years. i
am one of those patients that hate to be talked down to, that really want *all* the details and information so i was
so happy to find a doctor that will sit and talk to me and never seems rushed. it is also nice that she is a mother and
we can chat informally about parenting. however, she is moving her practice to orinda (East Bay Internal Medicine
925-254-9090 ebim9090 at pacbell.net) but still a part of alta bates medical associates. i'm following her to orinda
even though i live in berkeley. she says she will continue to accept all the insurance plans she currently accepts (i
have Healthnet and Blue Cross with her). -- carrie s.
